The two-table poker room at Hooters Las Vegas located near the intersection of Tropicana and Las Vegas Blvd. is closed.

According to USPoker.com, the poker room at the casino-restaurant opened at 2 p.m. daily, but often had no games running. It had $1-$2 no-limit hold’em, but no tournaments.

Hooters’ poker room is the second in Las Vegas to close this year. In January, a small poker room at the Linq, which was formerly Imperial Palace, closed for good.

Other Las Vegas poker rooms to close within the last few years include Circus Circus, Sunset Station, Aliante Station, El Cortez, Riviera, Texas Station, Palms, Bill’s Gambling Hall, M Resort, Tropicana, Gold Coast, Tuscany and Fitzgerald’s.

Statewide poker revenue in Nevada for calendar year 2014 was $119,904,000. The total was a drop off from the $123,891,000 in poker revenue in 2013—a decline of about three percent.

The number of live poker rooms in Nevada in 2014 was 79.

The last time the number of rooms was that low was the 79 in 2004.

Nevada’s live poker offerings continue to contract, despite online poker being in the mix since mid-2013. An online poker room closed last year due to lackluster revenue, bringing the number of Silver State online poker rooms to just two.
