The closed Silver Club casino opened its doors for eight hours to hold onto its Nevada gaming license.

The casino operated one slot machine and a blackjack table from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday to comply with a state law that requires eight hours of operation each quarter to maintain a license. A spokesperson says at least one customer played.

The Silver Club closed Jan. 10 and was to go up for auction Wednesday afternoon on the steps of the Washoe County Court House in Reno.
