An Ohio casino is looking for ways to attract new customers after a string of high-profile incidents including the death of a man in a robbery.
The state is one of just five states where people can’t get into a casino unless they have a valid driver’s license, and many casinos and hotels don’t have that privilege.
The latest issue comes after a man was robbed of nearly $100,000 in cash on Friday at the Revel Casino in Pittsburgh, according to local news outlets.
The man was shot by a bouncer who had to be airlifted to a nearby hospital, and a gunfight ensued, according the Associated Press.
It was the latest in a string that began in July when a man with a concealed carry permit was shot in the leg and killed at the New York City-area Revel Casino.
“We have been very proactive in our response and our safety programs,” Revel CEO David Sestak said.
“The situation has been handled very professionally and very carefully.”
Sestaks said the city has made some adjustments to its security protocols and is considering making more changes.
“What I can say is that we are going to continue to work on our security measures and ensure that we’re keeping our guests safe and our guests are comfortable,” Sestacks said.
