It was awful! This big fat man in nothing but boxers in the parking garage FARTED! The explosion was tremendous! It registered on the richter scale! Thank God no one was killed but about 10 cars parked nearby were damaged! Several people running from the scene were injured from the shockwave of the flatulence! The casino was evacuated just as a precaution in case any explosive gasses were lingering!

I work there. The news report said they evacuated 20,000 people. There has never been 20,000 people in the casino at one time in it's history.

It must not have been that serious, as the hotel was not evacuated.

Nothing exploded, nothing went off. There was no bomb. It was a threat. Nobody fired a gun. Sometimes cars exiting the premises at the parking deck sound like a loud bang as they go over the concrete lips.

Calm down and make money.

I was there and will say this if it had of been real would of been a lot of people hurt, it took forever to get out of there, when we were leaving people were still coming into the parking garage no one was stoping people from entering the garage. when it was over there was one poor man in the hotel lobbie sitting in a wheel chair covered with blood and his head totally wraped up, I would think he must of been pushed down or something. So if a real threat ever happens there expect to be hurt as it was hell getting out of there.

i was there too, there WAS an explosion. it was not a car going over a speed bump, a car backfiring, orm a gun shot! it was an explosion. i think it is very irresponsible of the casion not to inform people of exactly what happened.

I am here now and nobody wants to talk about it. I got one guy to admit it was an attempted robbery. My question is about the sexy bartender Jon. Is he single?
