LAS VEGAS (AP) - Planet Hollywood Resort has paid a $500,000 fine for not adequately controlling illegal activity that was taking place at the resort's Prive nightclub, which is owned by a third party.
The Nevada Gaming Commission unanimously approved the fine recommended by the Gaming Control Board and Planet Hollywood agreed to pay it.
If another similar complaint is filed against the hotel-casino in the next two years, Planet Hollywood could have to pay an additional $250,000 fine.
The gaming commission also commended the resort for the steps it has taken since the complaint.
Also Thursday, the Clark County Department of Business License denied the liquor license applications for the nightclub, which will be forced to end all business operations by next week.
