Nevada Casino Company in trouble with regulators to accept bets on already closed sporting events

Nevada regulators filed a lawsuit against a Las Vegas-based casino company for betting on sporting events that were already over.

According to a report from a local CNB affiliate, Nevada Gaming Control claims that Station Casinos accepted 348 bets on events completed from May 2018 to May 2021. According to the complaint, the company admitted this was true and attributed the error to an error in the software that accepted mobile and in-betting on games called Stadium Live.

“A Stations employee confirmed that these computer errors, essentially a server failure, were 100% preventable,” the complaint read.

Although the company initially accepted the bets, it still refunded the money and canceled the tickets. The NGCB urges the Nevada Gaming Commission to take action as errors are poorly reflected in the Silver State gaming market. Regulators say Station Casinos should have a better process in place to ensure these errors don’t occur.

The resort’s blunder will almost certainly end in a fine.

Station Casinos caters primarily to Las Vegas residents, as the company does not have a casino on the Las Vegas Strip and most of its properties are in the suburbs. Its most famous casino is The Palms, located just off the Strip and across from the Rio. The company also owns Red Rock Casino and Green Valley Ranch, two of the most popular suburban properties in Henderson and Summerlin.

Three of its casinos, Fiesta Henderson, Texas Station and Fiesta Rancho have still not reopened since the pandemic-induced shutdown in March 2020.
