US.- The Nevada Gaming Commission is expected to dish out a total of $435,000 in fines to six casinos for violating various policies and regulations, some related to Covid-19.

The Grand Sierra Resort and Sahara (both owned by the Meruelo Group) are to receive a $75,000 fine for violating policies related to the spread of the novel coronavirus.

A $300,000 fine will be slapped on Boyd Gaming’s Fremont casino over an incident in which a woman was detained for ninety minutes under false pretences.

Further fines are being considered against the Cod Casino in Minden ($30,000), Cheers in Winnemucca ($15,000), Hotel Nevada & Gambling Hall in Ely ($10,000) and Incline Bowl in Incline Village ($5,000).

The Nevada Gaming Control Board previously took action against two casinos and a bowling alley back in July for not complying with coronavirus restrictions.
