CARSON CITY – Caesars Palace has agreed to pay a $250,000 fine for allowing a man to walk and dance on a baccarat table while the game was being played.
Caesars Palace reached the settlement with the state Gaming Control Board, which filed a complaint charging the hotel-casino failed to take action to protect the game and the customer.
The settlement is to avoid litigation and will be presented for final approval to the Gaming Commission next month.
It is signed by Gary Selesner, senior vice present and general manager of Caesars Palace, and by gaming board members and Senior Deputy Attorney General Michael Somps, who drafted the complaint.
In the settlement, Caesars Palace admits the allegations in the complaint. The board said that on Oct. 10 last year a customer was playing in the high-limit baccarat room when, on three occasions, the player climbed onto the baccarat table from his chair.
The complaint alleges he walked on the table and made a bet before returning to stand on his chair and eventually sit down.
On one occasion, the player performed a dance on the table before returning to his chair.
Transport yourself to the opulent and excessive Roman Empire at Caesars Palace. But the ever-changing Caesars Palace is far from ancient. The hotel and casino is constantly raising the bar for what visitors can expect in a Vegas resort experience.

You never know what characters you’ll run into at Caesars with regular performers like Jerry Seinfeld, Bette Midler, Elton John and maybe even the emperor himself.
