I think it's pretty interesting that the problem occurred several months ago for 6 months or so and we're just now hearing about it. Not very security wise if you ask me. Or perhaps they just don't care.

Pretty hard to blame Rail City for the same ignorant stuff that's going on everywhere else. Been visiting them with my Grammy since before the were ever bought by anyone else. Decent people, decent food and they treat her like the Queen she is when I am not around too. You don't like Terrible's, go play in the road..

it's that lame "Terrible's", which is OK on a desert billboard but went over locally like a led balloon payment. Ferenc Szony is the on-again, off-again player in most of these operations.

I know Rail City & The Sands were owned by the same group until a couple of months ago, when The Sands was taken over? I think Gold Ranch.......I believe I've used my Rail City 'Player's Club' card there.....and when I first moved to Reno a few years ago....and went to sign up for a Rail City card....they told me I was 'already in their system'.....because back in the 1990s I had visited a couple of their properties down in Primm( or Jean ) NV west of Las Vegas.

"which" casinos. People who used their cards all thru the spring and summer, into Fall, weren't protecting their finances anyway. U win sum, U lose 'em.
