Maybe coincidence but seems fishy.

I live in Las Vegas and woke up to a news story about 2 casinos power being out this morning (new York new York and the MGM). The Rio had to cancel it's NYE fireworks because they had a major electrical fire. Full disclosure it has been very windy here the past couple days which is what they are blaming the power outage on and I never caught an official explanation of how the electrical fire started in the Rio.

I know stuff happens but three major casinos losing power and having to temporarily shunt down in a 2 week period set of my spidey senses.

It could be Danny Ocean and his team using a pinch.

I think Clooney is in his safe space crying about Trump.

Unless you can think of a nefarious way that someone benefits from closing down two American casinos, you may have to put it down to coincidence. Competitors possibly, Putin probably not.

Interesting that MGM properties left the state's main power supplier a couple years ago. Could be why they went down when others did not.

Sometimes when they try to get customers to repay their markers they sometimes use too much voltage.

Or it could just be high desert Winds.

They had back up power.

OR Politics?

Yea, it's quite obvious things have and are that dirty at this point in time for those scared of losing their authority?

Usually if the power goes out, it effect BLOCKS at a time not just a few buildings on the same block?

Back up power provided by on-site generators.

I'm guessing whoever their power provider is had a major issue with providing juice to these casinos.

imagine your sat at your gambling machine dropping quarters in and then three $$$ drop in,and it's the jackpot $100,000! then BAM lights out and all the machines go dead!
Soon power is restored but your machine goes into its default test setting spinning up the reels till they land in a random no win order.It just says insert coins!
You don’t get to collect the jackpot of $100,000 cos that may be how these machines work.And the boss is like "yeah really?They all say that,now go away and play some more you may get lucky"
bummer!

I'm sure this will be deemed fake news but

Maybe the power companies used there influence with Anemoi, the Greek god of wind to blow debris into a substation.

Or it could have been aliens or Russia or just high desert winds.

The slots never went down. All casinos have on-site uninterruptible backup power just for these types of occasions... just like any good data center would. Heck, each machine probably has a backup battery I would imagine.

Well if there is a future "incident "
at NYNY or MGM, this thread could be very
interesting for research.

The power was knocked out when strong winds blew debris into a substation, Monet said.


makes sense.

I don't understand enough about energy to know if substations are shared between nvenergy and their alternative elec provider.

Actually slot machines have their own internal "storage" of all events.

When a power failure happens, the machine holds and recovers.

When power comes back on, the machine displays what was there before the power failure.

I actually saw this happen twice.

Those things are very high tech.

These buildings obviously use more power than your average high energy building. They have more dedicated space for their needs.
