Bill's Casino Removes Casino Table Dealers From Games Like Craps
On July 21st, 2008, around twenty-eight casino table game dealers have been dismissed from the Bill's Casino located in the Stateline. The employees were notified about the decision Monday afternoon. Harrah's and Harvey's Lake Tahoe spokesperson, John Packer said that they did restructure their business, which include canceling the casino table games of Bill's. He added that this is an unfortunate incident that has to happen. Bill's still features their Bar 24 and their slot machines.
The Bill's casino is managed by Harrah's Entertainment, together with Harrah's and Harvey's. Sources revealed that thirteen blackjack tables, a roulette table and a craps table at Bill's was not properly staff. Half a dozen customers gather about two electronic table game machines, which utilizes dealers shown on video screens to simulate blackjack and three card poker games. Packer could not say on what will be the future gaming operations at Harrah's and Harvey's.
He said that they are continually examining their operation and evaluating it for improvement. Packer said that business has dropped from last summer and the months of July and August are usually the months that casinos are teeming with customers. He said that the drop reflects the current state of the economy. The gaming industry is hurting because players are not spending as much as they used to.
