|With one application for a private salon already under consideration next month by Nevada gaming regulators, Caesars Palace wants to get in on the act too.|
Gaming Control Board Chairman Dennis Neilander said last week that, barring any delays, the application by the MGM Grand for its international gaming salon should come up for consideration in July by state regulators.
Now Caesars Palace wants to join the high-roller salon bandwagon. The Strip casino, a part of Park Place Entertainment, filed its application Monday.
Gaming Control Board member Scott Scherer said other big casinos may wait to see how the MGM Grand initiative progresses before filing similar applications.
The salons were legalized to allow high rollers to gamble in private, which was previously forbidden by Nevada law.
To gain membership of these new private casinos, patrons must have at least $500,000 in cash or credit line. Minimum wagers on the private casinos' slot machines and table games will be $500.
Of course, you don’t have to go all the way to Nevada to gamble in privacy – there are such things as Internet casinos, where your privacy is even more assured.
