A downtown Las Vegas regular from Hawai’i turned her visit to Fremont Hotel and Casino into a nearly $790,000 jackpot playing Aristocrat’s Buffalo Inferno™ slot game on Wednesday, September 16.

Louise, a regular visitor of the California Hotel and Casino, decided to stop by the Fremont on Wednesday morning and hit the $789,062 progressive jackpot at 8:37 a.m. The lucky guest thought she won $79,000 at first, but quickly realized she had actually won 10 times that amount.

Her luck at Fremont wasn’t finished, though – while waiting to be paid on her huge win, Louise hit a second jackpot of more than $5,000 on a nearby machine.

JING LAS VEGAS PLANS TO REOPEN ON FRIDAY, JUNE 26 WITH HEIGHTENED SAFETY AND SANITIZATION PROTOCOLS

 

JING LAS VEGAS PLANS TO REOPEN ON FRIDAY, JUNE 26 WITH HEIGHTENED SAFETY AND SANITIZATION PROTOCOLS 

The Downtown Summerlin® Eatery Has Enlisted A Full-Time Medical Consultant To Assist In Updating COVID-19 Procedures 

Jing Las Vegas located at Downtown Summerlin® is reopening its doors on Friday, June 26 after voluntarily closing down as a result of multiple positive COVID-19 cases among staff. The restaurant has taken the necessary precautions to provide peace of mind to their patrons at the time of reopening, including the implementation of new COVID-19 procedures and mandated testing required for all staff. The restaurant has also enlisted a full-time medical consultant to assist with retraining and re-opening procedures, and to help navigate the rapidly evolving COVID-19 pandemic moving forward.

“Our main goal is to create a safe environment with zero transmission of the COVID-19 virus,” said Dr. Eugene Shin, Jing’s in-house medical consultant, when asked about the restaurant’s plan to stop the spread. “While this is a lofty goal, it is possible when synergy is achieved between the back of house and front of house teams, along with the cooperation of the restaurant’s patrons.”

Updated COVID-19 procedures at the restaurant include:

  • Implementing additional signage to ensure social distancing is practiced
  • Spacing out tables and chairs even further
  • Requiring masks upon arrival (complimentary, disposable masks provided)
  • Requiring a digital temperature check for all staff and patrons upon arrival
  • Installing additional hand sanitizer dispensers
  • Requiring the entire staff to undergo testing
  • Implementing a new “contact tracing” procedure for all staff
  • Implementing an additional deep surface cleaning scheduled concurrently with regular daily cleaning

 

In light of Governor Sisolak’s recent issuance of a mandated face mask policy in all public places in the state of Nevada, face coverings will be required by both staff and patrons at all times, aside from when guests are seated at their designated table.

 

Staff members will be allowed to return to work with proof of a negative COVID-19 test result. Any staff that receives a positive test result will be required to undergo a 14-day mandated quarantine period, followed by a negative test result before being allowed to return to work.

Reservations are highly suggested by calling 725-735-7172. The restaurant’s hours of operation are 3:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. daily, with daily happy hour offered from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

FOR THE FIRST TIME, THE MOB MUSEUM RELEASES THREE-PART VIRTUAL GUIDED TOUR ENCOMPASSING ALL FOUR FLOORS OF EXHIBITS

New Virtual Tours Available Here 

 For the first time since opening in 2012, The Mob Museum, The National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement, introduces virtual, guided tours highlighting its most popular exhibitions and artifacts. These tours offer enriching and entertaining ways to enjoy the Museum during its temporary closure due to COVID-19.

“This virtual tour provides a great taste of what our Museum’s exhibition spaces have to offer,” says Geoff Schumacher, vice president of exhibits and programs. “Of course, there is so much more to see when we resume operations.”

The new, virtual tour is split into three parts, following the itinerary guests take when physically visiting the Museum:

  • Birth of the Mob: Starting with the Museum’s historic postal boxes in the building’s lobby, make your way up to the third floor, where you’ll learn about the rise of organized crime, the history of Prohibition and the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre, which took place in the north side of Chicago with seven members of George “Bugs” Moran’s bootlegging gang.
  • The Mob and Las Vegas: From the Kefauver Committee hearings in our historic courtroom to the Frank “Lefty” Rosenthal car bombing, take a virtual tour of the Mob’s rise in Las Vegas and the responses of law enforcement to the scourge of organized crime in the Museum’s second-floor exhibits.
  • The Mob in Politics and Culture: Journey through the Museum’s newest exhibits on the first floor covering wiretapping, modern organized crime and the Mob on TV, and end your virtual tour in The Underground, where you’ll learn more about Prohibition in our fully immersive speakeasy and distillery.

For additional virtual educational and entertainment resources, visit The Mob Museum’s website, its blog for fresh and timely content, as well as its Mobile App for easy access to more digital Museum information as well as the entertaining “Doppelgangster” feature, which matches users with their Mob history lookalike drawn from a database of more than 800 organized crime and law enforcement figures.

For more information, please visit www.TheMobMuseum.org.
