Vegas' Blacklist Is Even Larger Than Before
More people are being '86'd' from Las Vegas casinos than ever before.
But they aren't alone. The Las Vegas Review Journal reportsthat gaming officials said at least 25 percent more individuals have been added to the Excluded Persons List in the last four years than in the last 12.
A report on the U.S. gaming industry found the industry as a whole is banning more individual bad actors from casino floors. The report came from the Financial Action Task Force, which is the international watchdog to prevent money laundering.
The task force found an uptick in “terminated patron relationships” from its last evaluation in 2006.The American Gaming Association reports the number of patron relationships terminated in 2014 because of money laundering concerns was 23 times higher than in 2011.
