Aria Casino Pays Fine For Blocking Agents

The Aria Casino has agreed to pay a $100,000 fine for blocking state agents from watching a high-stakes roulette table. In February two state agents with the Nevada Gaming Control Board filed a complaint that they were watching a high rollers game when a supervisor threatened to call security if the two didn't leave.

State law requires all gambling to be open to the public. The Control Board posted the proposed settlement online though it must now be approved by the Nevada Gaming Commission. The casino faced a fine of as much as $500,000. Aria said it educated employees about the law after the complaint was filed.
