Las Vegas Casino Re-Opens Poker Room

Four-Table Room Opens Doors On Monday


The Linq Hotel & Casino, a Caesars property located on the Las Vegas Strip, closed its poker room in January but re-opened it this week, according to the poker room’s Twitter account.

The four-table room (down from six tables previously) boasts a $1-$1 no-limit hold’em cash game, which is the smallest live game that is offered on the Strip. Typically, $1-$2 is the smallest game in a poker room. A $1-$1 game is regarded by some as more welcoming for beginners.

In addition to cash games, the room offers daily tournaments.

Poker rooms in Nevada had $15,840,000 in revenue in June, which was a 4.46-percent increase compared to the same month in 2014. There were 70 poker rooms across the state with a combined 761 cash game tables. Nevada poker rooms took in $119.9 million in 2014.

Las Vegas’ poker supply has been decreasing over the past several years. Live poker rooms at 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 all not too long ago shed their respective rooms because they weren’t making enough money.
