After Historic Casino Closure, Gambling Returns to Las Vegas
The casino coronavirus closure has ended. Cards are being dealt, dice are rolling and slot machines flashed and jingled for the first customers who started gambling again early Thursday in Las Vegas and throughout Nevada.
As reopening nears, a word is used not often associated with Vegas: Caution
The new spirit is conveyed in a 30-second commercial rolled out by the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority on May 18. Titled "Reimagined," the spot features intimate settings and outdoor recreation without the large gatherings still not permitted amid the pandemic.
Gaming Commission approves guidelines for casino reopening
Casino capacity would be cut in half, gamblers would keep their distance at slot and table games and surfaces would be cleaned frequently when casinos reopen under new guidelines approved Thursday by the Nevada Gaming Commission.
