The Nevada Gaming Control Board has fined the Palms casino-resort in Las Vegas $1 million for alleged employee involvement in the provision of drugs and prostitutes to undercover agents at three of its popular nightclubs. The 21-page, 17-count complaint detailing the offenses was made public on Friday, Jan. 11 in Las Vegas.
The complaint was based on results of a dozen sting operations conducted by undercover agents from the board and Las Vegas Police at the nightclubs in March, April, and May of 2012. Allegedly, nightclub employees provided drugs such as cocaine, Ecstasy, and Percocet at Moon, Rain, and/or Ghostbar nightclubs at the resort. Prostitutes were also supplied by nightclub employees to undercover agents.
Palms spokesman Alex Acuna says the Palms has agreed to pay the imposed fine, which must be approved by the Nevada Gaming Commission. The Nevada Gaming Commission could reject, change, or alter the conditions of the imposed penalty.
Acuna indicated the Palms is implementing mandatory drug testing and has made changes in its security department to avoid future related incidents.
