I was surprised to learn that there was a casino up and running in the Nevada state prison in Carson City for many years.

It closed in 1967.

I wonder whether it may be revived again?

Talk about having a captive audience.

They should put one in Loveland where the most innocent man in Nevada is sitting, wrongly convicted and sentenced by a judge looking to be famous and a jury who thought they knew what happened in 1994 in LA.

I'm sure many ex casino workers wind up in prison, but by then their casino days are over since a casino can not hire a felon.

Gave the prisoners something to do and brought in money too, perhaps.

Now? Why not.


As for OJ, he was guilty as hell of murder, but got off due to stupid prosecutors, a stage struck judge and a criminalist who never seized the dark blue pants and wash water in the washing machine.

On a side note, don't forget the WoV article, Gambling In Jail, and the discussion about it in this WoV thread.

That's not true at all call up Nevada Gaming Commission they say felons are hired all the time although many years have to pass.

Speaking of a captive audience, some overseas U.S. military bases have onsite casinos. I did the mathematics and design work for a company that provided some slot machines to these casinos. The request was that the return be very low (I believe in the low 80% range). The proceeds from these casinos were directed to go to the "widows fund." I always thought this would make a good 60 Minutes episode.

They must have closed when they stopped taking cigarettes in exchange for chips

In September 2007 O.J. went to a hotel with associates that were armed to recover items of memorabilia that he felt belonged to him. This created a potentially very dangerous situation. He is in prison right where he belongs.

As far as the jury thinking that "they knew what happened in 1994 in L.A." maybe they did and maybe they didn't. But for me the linchpin in that 1994 case is this. There were footprints in blood found at the Nicole Simpson death scene. They were of an expensive pair of "Lorenzo style" Bruno Magli shoes size 12., the same size shoe Simpson wears. Simpson denied ever owing a pair of those shoes. But after the verdict a photo was discovered of Simpson from a sports magazine clearly showing him wearing a pair of these exact shoes at a 1993 football game. Only 299 pairs of size 12 Bruno Magli shoes had been sold in the U.S.
