Vegas Poker Room Directory - Las Vegas Cardrooms



Vegas Poker Room Directory - This is our new directory of cardrooms in Las Vegas, Nevada. Poker is completely legal and available at many of the major casinos in Vegas. This page includes a list of those card rooms and links to info pages (that include addresses and phone numbers) for each of them.

Las Vegas Poker

Las Vegas has almost as many cardrooms as they have casinos. For a few years, poker rooms were being closed down in casino after casino because of the need to maximize revenue per square foot, and management thought that the space that was being used for poker players would be better used for more slot machines.

But with the rise in popularity of poker on television and in the media, the casinos could no longer afford to not have card rooms. Even though the rake generated from the actual games might not be as profitable as more slot machines, the increased amount of traffic to and from the casinos' poker rooms became more and more profitable. (The idea being that people who come to play poker will also spend time at blackjack tables, video poker, and craps, etc.)

So here's a list of the cardrooms in Vegas. Each listing links to an information page for the poker room, including information about the poker games available and the stakes, and how many tables are available, and the phone number and address of each location.

Vegas Poker Rooms Listings

  • Arizona Charlie's - You won't have to wait, but the cardroom is smoky and old-school.
  • Bally's - Enjoy the fish but beware the local sharks.
  • Bellagio - Where the pro's play poker. Over 30 tables and great dealers.
  • Binion's - Downtown Las Vegas, where people play poker at Binions Gambling Hall.
  • Boulder Station - Lots of tables in a tight area, with lots of local color and players.

  • MGM Grand - Another of our premier reviews, detailed and longer than our normal directory pages. The MGM has a nice poker room.

  • The Stardust - A really great room rate for poker players staying here - one of the best poker player room rates in Vegas, in fact.
  • The Stratosphere - Automated poker comps available here. What will they think of next?
  • Sunset Station - Texas holdem and Omaha are available here, but no stud poker.
  • The Tropicana - A cozy, but not crowded, Vegas cardroom.
  • Tuscany - No stud and no Omaha. Another all Texas holdem all the time type place.
  • Wynn Las Vegas - A big poker room with lots of people playing big stakes.

This is a complete listing at the time of this writing, as far as I know, but casinos and poker rooms change constantly, opening and closing, so some of this information might become outdated before I can update it.
