Company accused of operating slot machines without license

CARSON CITY — The state Gaming Control Board has accused a Las Vegas slot machine route company of operating 10 slot machines at a bar without a license.

The three-count complaint filed Thursday asks that a fine of up to $30,000 be imposed and disciplinary action be taken against the license of Golden Route Operations.

The Nevada Gaming Commission would make the final decision.

According to the complaint, Golden Route paid $20,552 over a period of time to the owner of the Las Vegas bar from slot machine revenue. Neither had a state license to operate slots at the bar, according to the complaint.

The complaint, drafted by Deputy Attorney General Edward Magaw, said Golden Route never notified the board of the slot agreement.
