The Iowa casino went through technology issues and as the local gaming law expresses, the facility was forced to close its doors.
US.- The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Sioux City reported that it suffered issues regarding the technology of their machines over the weekend. The problem forced the authorities of the casino to shut down a section of the facility.
As the Iowa gaming law establishes, in order to be open and offering gambling services, a casino must be fully functional, therefore officials from the Sioux City casino closed the doors on Saturday and opened them again on the first hours of Sunday. The casino issued a statement where it was reported that the gaming floor suffered an interruption of the information technology system, but there were no news as to why it happened. The other parts of the venue were still open to the public.
Last year, the state board that oversees gambling in Iowa, approved Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Sioux City’s planned US$6.5 million expansion, which included a 7,800-square-foot extension with a high-stakes gambling area, a wine bar and a private lounge. This expansion encapsulates that same kind of feeling, that same kind of objective. We’re not just adding gaming units, we’re creating a whole new experience. In 7,800 square feet we’re really building an entire casino. What more could you want?,” had said Todd Moyer, the casino’s general manager.
