Small casino agrees to $3,500 fine over hiring errors

CARSON CITY — The state Gaming Control Board says a Las Vegas casino has agreed to pay a $3,500 fine for hiring workers and not notifying authorities.

The Mardi Gras Inn on Paradise Road has signed a stipulation admitting to errors in employing gaming workers without first getting clearance from the Control Board.

The complaint, signed by Senior Deputy Attorney General John Michela, said the company failed to file required monthly reports.

Philippe F. Jaramillo, the vice president and part owner of the company, said he was advised by an employee of the board that the monthly report was no longer required. The board agent, Wendy Demarco, said she never told Jaramillo the report was no longer required.

Jaramillo said there was a misunderstanding and corrective actions have been taken.
