(AP) Gambling regulators are fining the Palms casino in Las Vegas $1 million for providing undercover agents with prostitutes and drugs, including cocaine and the prescription painkiller oxycodone.


The state Gaming Control Board detailed the transactions in a complaint filed Friday after agents conducted more than a dozen stings last March.


Among other offenses, the complaint says employees of the Palms Casino Resort agreed to sell agents $18,000 worth of cocaine.


Palms spokesman Alex Acuna says in a statement that the company is concerned and disappointed.


Acuna says the Palms has implemented mandatory drug testing, set up a whistle-blower system and made changes in its security department to avoid future incidents.


The $1 million fine must be approved by the Nevada Gaming Commission.


The Palms will also pay $78,000 for investigation expenses.
