2 Hour Power Outage at Golden Nugget

golden_nugget_outside.jpgCan you imagine being in a casino, ready to hit a hot streak on a slot machine or video poker game, and suddenly having the power go out? Gamblers at the Golden Nugget in downtown Las Vegas faced that very problem last week when the power went down and stayed down for two hours.

My first thought that someone must've done it on purpose to go all Ocean's 11 on the place, and then I remembered - the Golden Nugget probably doesn't have all that much anyone wants to steal.

...it happened this afternoon at Golden Nugget, where the power went out for almost two hours because of an underground cable being severed. Oddly enough, it only affected Golden Nugget and not any other business on Fremont St.

During the outage, all gambling ceased and was shut down, while most people were told to leave the casino.
