Several Nevada casinos remain closed despite the state’s full reopening on June 1 and some won’t reopen for at least another year, while others have closed permanently.
As of June 1, Governor Steve Sisolak lifted capacity limits and social distancing requirements in the state. Las Vegas casinos had been operating under capacity restrictions since reopening last summer.
Off the Strip, Boyd Gaming’s Main Street Station and Eastside Cannery remain closed. Both properties have been shuttered since March 2020. Last year, Boyd executives said that Main Street Station would open sometime this year, as reported by Las Vegas Review-Journal.
Others will stay closed for another six months to a year, possibly more. This month, Station Casinos’ Texas Station and Fiesta Rancho casinos placed their “non-restricted gaming, non-restricted gaming liquor and full liquor off-sale business licences” on hold for the second year in a row, citing the state’s “uncertain economic conditions.”
The licences can be placed on hold for a maximum of two consecutive years.
