Pahrump casino agrees to $5,500 fine over unregistered employees

CARSON CITY — A casino in Pahrump has agreed to pay a $5,500 fine to the state Gaming Commission for failing to register its bartenders as gaming employees.

The state Gaming Control Board filed the two-count complaint Monday against Stagestop Casino, owned by Shawn P. Jones.

Filed with the complaint was a stipulation signed by Jones on Monday to pay the fine and concede the violation. The stipulation must be approved by the Gaming Commission.

The complaint said an investigation started in June showed that seven of nine bartenders were not properly registered as gaming employees. It said Holmes had failed since October 2010 to submit reports on newly hired employees.

Holmes admitted to state agents he had not been tracking employees for several years, according to the complaint.
