Working Crew Will Not Be Charged in Monte Carlo Casino Fire

The Monte Carlo Casino has lost a tremendous amount of revenue because of a fire that started in the building a few months ago. The blaze started on the top of the building.
While there was fault found in some of the things that workers were doing that may have caused the fire, authorities have decided not to press charges against the contractors.
Claiming that the contractor, Union Erectors LLC., had suffered enough damage, along with the casino, authorities have decided against filing charges stemming from the fire. They are hoping that this incident will serve as an example for future contractors.
The casino has taken a financial hit of around $100 million between what they lost in revenue and what they lost in having to repair the building. Seventeen people were injured in the fire, but the injuries were only minor.
The other factor that led to no charges in the fire, was that the fire was an apparent accident. While workers were working on the roof without permits, they did not intentionally start the fire.
Authorities have now urged contractors and casinos to make sure that the proper permits are pulled before starting any work. This will prevent these kind of accidents from happening in the future.

Governor Deval Patrick is having a hard time getting politicians in his state to go for his expanded casino gambling plan. If lottery sales are any indication, the people of Massachusetts are in favor of his cause.
Lottery officials have come out and said that lottery sales in the state are thriving. So far this year, lottery sales are up ten percent from last year. That is a drastic rise.
It is also a rise that shows that the people of the state are willing to spend money on gambling. That is a fact that Governor Patrick has been trying to drill home to representatives of the state.
As far as the lottery sales go, the numbers are truly unbelievable. “It’s off the charts. It’s really off the charts,” said Timothy Cahill, the chairman of the Lottery Commission and the State Treasurer.
The $20 Blockbuster game has been a big hit with gamblers since the end of September. Sales for the game have gone over $520 million. That number is enough to make anyone realize the need for more gambling options in the state.
Keno sales have been down. The money that has been generated in other games has compensated for the decline in Keno revenue.
