11:06 am ET - Poker Rooms in Vegas Continue to Shut Down

Poker rooms struggled to get players to occupy their tables on a consistent basis and even when they did, they were not spending a lot of money. The lack of customers and the lack of spending forced multiple poker rooms to close in Las Vegas over the last few years. Some of the top Vegas casinos that have closed their poker rooms in over the years include Aliante Casino, Plaza, The Linq, Monte Carlo and Luxor.

More recently, Suncoast, which started the Seven Card Stud Hi/Lo games in Vegas, closed its doors in April 2018, followed by the closure of the seven-table poker room Treasure Island and the Golden Entertainment-owned Arizona Charlie’s Decatur in August 2018.

The latest poker room to shut its doors was The Strat. As part of a $140 million renovation, the poker room was transferred to the second level of the resort casino. However, the poker games eventually faded away and the room was forced to close in October 2019.  Source: LegalGamblingAndTheLaw
