ABSTRACT
The article reports that Black Gaming has decided to temporarily close the Oasis' casino, restaurants and night clubs in Mesquite, Nevada. The move is prompted by the efforts of the gaming operator to cut costs. The shutdown will result to the layoff of around 500 employees, according to a filing with the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission. Randy Black Sr., the majority owner and chief executive officer (CEO) of Black Gaming, claims that the move is also designed to attract customers to their other two properties, the Casablanca and Virgin River.
