Las Vegas police said somebody broke a window with a rock in the valet area of the MGM Grand Casino around 10pm local time, sending the area into a mass panic.

PokerGO commentator Remko Rinkema tweeted that the wave of panic rolled through more than 10 casinos until it hit Ballys and Paris.

Joey Ingram posted a photo of the scene in the Paris poker room that showed not everyone was in the mood to panic. Maybe they’d had enough of a bad day at the tables to care!

Vanessa Kade was also trampled during the mayhem, hitting the deck and being unable to get back to her feet.

She tweeted that poker player Eddy Sabat risked his own safety by standing in front of her to allow her to stand up and get moving again.


Maria Ho reported that it was a sad scene to see so many people getting trampled on while fearing they were running for their lives. She called it an “unfathomable reality for others all across America.”

It’s understandable why panic spread so quickly after the area was the scene for the deadliest mass shooting in American history.

In 2017, 60 people lost their lives and 850 were wounded when Stephen Paddock opened fire on a crowd attending the Route 91 Harvest music festival from his hotel room window.
