HENDERSON, Nev. (AP) - Gambling regulators say a Henderson casino hasn't been keeping enough cash on hand to pay out players' potential winnings, and it faces losing its license if the problem persists.
A complaint filed Thursday with the Nevada Gaming Control Board says the Klondike Sunset Casino was tens of thousands of dollars short of state-mandated cash minimums when inspectors checked in on Feb. 26 last year. They say the same problem turned up during several follow-up visits throughout 2013.
The casino and regulators have reached a tentative settlement in which the Klondike will have its licensed suspended if it misses cash targets two or more times.
Klondike managers weren't immediately available for comment Monday afternoon.
State regulators set minimum amounts of cash casinos must have readily available at all times.
