LAS VEGAS • The Mandalay Bay Resort plans to pay a half-million-dollar fine amid accusations that employees at an upscale Las Vegas Strip lounge provided prostitutes and drugs to undercover officers.
A proposed settlement between the casino and the Nevada Gaming Control Board was filed this week. It's awaiting approval by the Nevada Gaming Commission.
Authorities say undercover officers bought cocaine from a host at the House of Blues Foundation Room in June 2012. Officials say employees also connected officers with four prostitutes, cocaine and a private room for sex during a visit in July, and helped an officer get Ecstasy in August.
