EVERY NAME IN THE LAS VEGAS BLACK BOOK Here they are, all the people who are not allowed in a Vegas Casino

If you’re in the Las Vegas black book, it means you are not permitted to enter any casino in Nevada. You are nominated for it, you attend a public hearing to fight it, then you can be put on the list and then you can be removed from the list. 16 people have had their names taken off the list. Some people like Herbie Blitzstein in 1996 get killed after being nominated in a gangland-style execution before hearings are conducted. Here’s the list and the year they went on it - 7 of them are current Palm Beach County residents - see if you know any.
