Las Vegas Casino Closes Its Poker Room

Posted on 07 August 2013 by "T".

Last week, we wrote that Revel Casino-Hotel in Atlantic City would close its poker room in August as it wasn't profitiable enough. Now another casino has closed its poker room. According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, The M Resort (a casino off the strip in Las Vegas) has closed its 14-table poker room to make space for a slot machine tournament area. Apparently the poker room didn't do as well as the slot machine tournaments that usually attracted 800 players to the ballroom, which was way too small.

Currently tournaments are held in a ballroom and with the new area, guests will be able to play on our floor with better access to our amenities and easy access to self-parking," a spokeswomen for the casino said.

Although M Resort has closed its poker room, they still plan to host poker events, such as the Hollywood Poker Open, a $500,000 guarantee tournament that attracted 631 players in June ($1,423,062 prize pool) and was won by Spanish poker pro Ana Marquez.
