The parent company of the Palms casino, located just off the Las Vegas Strip, has been hit with a $1 million fine by Nevada regulators after an investigation into prostitution and drugs.

According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the firm has agreed to pay the seven figures to the state. For details on the investigation into the Palms’ clubs, check out the 21-page complaint.

The casino, first opened in 2001, had financial problems recently.

According to a 2011 article by the Review-Journal, the Maloof family sold most of its stake in the property after the Palms missed a loan payment in 2010. The deal with the new investors was part of restructuring $459 million worth of debt.

Nightclubs at the casino include Rain, Moon and Ghostbar.
