With simply 4.2 percent of precincts reporting as of 7: 43 p.m. EST, Sanders had 44.7 percent of the vote, with Joe Biden (D) falling into a far-off second with 19.5 percent support and Pete Buttigieg (D) in 3rd with 15.6 percent, according to NBC News.

According to the New York City Times, Sanders carried out well among employees in Las Vegas, despite a bitter battle with the Culinary Union, which eventually refrained from endorsing a specific Democrat candidate:

Bernie Sanders seemed carrying out well at caucus sites for gambling establishment employees on the Las Vegas Strip. Mr. Sanders won precincts at the Bellagio and the Wynn, increasing him in sites filled with members of a labor union that has opposed his stance on health care.

At the Bellagio, Mr. Sanders got 32 county delegates and Biden received 19; at the Wynn, Mr. Sanders earned 6 while Mr. Biden made 3. No other candidates were declared feasible at either of those two sites.
