The Cosmopolitan Hotel Casino in Las Vegas experienced every casino’s worst nightmare when a fire ripped through their outdoor pool area. DraftKings secures another $300 million of investment funding. GVC makes another pitch to acquire bwin.party. And more.
People enjoying the outdoor pool at the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas got a little more than they bargained for on Sunday when the pool deck was engulfed in flames. Fortunately no one was burned by the fast moving blaze, and only one person was treated for smoke inhalation.
One Twitter user captured the scene from high above in his hotel room:
