Gaming Commission to impose $10,000 fine on North Las Vegas casino

The state Gaming Commission Thursday agreed to impose a $10,000 fine on the Lucky Club Casino and Hotel in North Las Vegas for permitting an unregistered employee to be involved in gaming activities.

The commission accepted the stipulation between the Lucky Club and the state Gaming Control Board, which filed the complaint.

The board originally objected to Kristen Heiselmann being registered as a gaming employee. She was a supervisor in the restaurant but had access to the system that permitted gamblers to receive free meals.

An employee of the club, who is no longer on the job, mishandled the objection and Heiselmann continued to have access to the system. The settlement said the owners and senior management were unaware of false and misleading statements made to board agents by the departed worker.

In another disciplinary action, the commission, in a 3-1 vote, agreed to the stipulation that Lonny Campos pay a $5,000 fine and surrender his state license for a violation committed at his Bikini Bar in Las Vegas.

Campos sold the bar for $150,000 to Paul Wilkes and Joseph Adasen and accepted $100,000 initially without putting the money in escrow as required by state regulations.

The two men operated the business for a year but Campos collected the revenue from the slot machines until it was discovered the state had not approved the deal.

The dissenting vote was cast by John Moran who said the fine should be higher for operation of a gaming location that was not licensed.
