LAKE LAS VEGAS, Nev. -- Lake Las Vegas has a new star. The once-booming resort community 30 miles from las vegas fell on hard times when the recession hit. But the newly-renovated Casino MonteLago re-opens Thursday night.
Locals and business owners are betting heavy the casino will bring the area back.
Casino MonteLago is the only casino at the lake. It closed last spring and officially re-opens under new management with all new games at p.m. One employee who's back for a second go-round at the casino thinks this is the boost Lake Las Vegas needs.
