Henderson casino settles complaint over cash shortfall

CARSON CITY — The state Gaming Commission today approved an agreement to settle a complaint that the Klondike Sunset Casino in Henderson repeatedly failed to keep enough cash on hand.

The casino at 444 West Sunset Road could suffer a suspension or loss of its license if there are future violations.

The board, in a complaint drafted by Senior Deputy Attorney General Michael Somps in February, said there were eight instances in 2013 when the casino was short in its bankroll. Auditors reported finding the casino short up to $15,000 in its bankroll to cover losses.

Owner Ellen Woodrum told the commission she has been involved in Nevada gaming for 35 years and vowed to “never to let this happen again.”

She said the casino has “been brought to code.”

Under terms of the agreement, if the casino again comes up short on cash, it will have 24 hours to correct the situation. A second offense could result in a one-week license suspension, a third offense a 30-day suspension and a fourth offense a revocation of the casino’s gaming license.
