Casino Boat Fails Inspection

There is more bad news tonight for the owners of Diamond Casino and their cruise ship. The Coast Guard inspected the Midnight Gambler and conducted safety drills today, and found some safety deficiencies, including problems with the life raft.

The problems need to be corrected before the Coast Guard will issue a certificate of inspection. This delays the casino boat's start date at least two more days.

The Coast Guard won't go back out to William's Seafood, where the ship is docked, until Wednesday.
