LAS VEGAS (AP) - Nevada gambling regulators says the Aria hotel-casino on the Las Vegas Strip blocked its agents from watching a high-stakes roulette table.
The Nevada Gaming Control Board filed a two-count complaint against Aria and part-owner MGM Resorts International on Friday.
The complaint says that two state agents who had not identified themselves were watching high rollers play roulette when a supervisor told them that the players did not want to be watched, and threatened to call security. State law requires all gambling to be open to the public.
The complaint says regulators previously encountered similar issues at MGM properties.
The matter will be discussed at a future meeting of the Nevada Gaming Commission. The casino could be fined as much as $500,000.
