Casinos in Las Vegas have been reopened for a couple of weeks, but wearing face masks isn’t being required by state or local government, and it doesn’t seem like many people are wearing them.
So Caesars Entertainment has come up with a way to prod people to wear masks in its five hotel-casinos on the Vegas Strip — offer cash.
Under the promotion, guests who are wearing a mask may be approached by a casino employee and be given $20 to gamble.
Over the past weekend, 375 guests were given a total of $7,500 at Caesars Palace, Paris, Flamingo, The Linq and Harrah’s.
However, the promotion may soon not be necessary, as state officials are being pressured to require face masks in casinos as the coronavirus outbreak is growing in Nevada. Currently, gamblers just have to wear face masks at table games that have no barriers.
