Casino allowed to continue reduced operations

The Oasis in Mesquite can continue to run at reduced operations until Thursday through an update to an existing bank agreement, a Friday filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission shows.

Black Gaming closed the Oasis’ table game operations, company-owned restaurants and nightclub Dec. 19 under a bank agreement that first expired Jan. 15 and was extended to Monday of this week.

The Oasis reduced its slots from 750 machines to 144, and closed most of its 900-room hotel.

The move reduced the casino’s staff by 340 workers.

Majority owner Randy Black Sr. and Black Gaming officials are scheduled to appear Tuesday before the Mesquite City Council to discuss the future of the Oasis.
