Vegas Stripped:  South Point Casino Reality TV Show Debuts on Travel Channel

“It’s an inside look at what it takes to run a casino,” said Tom Mikovits, South Point director of marketing. “You’re going to see what happens in the butcher shop or on the loading dock, lots of stuff people don’t normally see.”

“We were comfortable being a locals’ casino, but having a brand like southpointpoker.com, that’s something we want to get out nationally,” he said. “It lets people know who we are and that we can play with the big players in Vegas, while still keeping that down home feeling.”

South Point was the first Vegas property to begin offering an Internet poker room.  While the Web cardroom was currently utilizing a “free-to-play” platform, the company had hoped its South Point Poker brand would switch to “real cash play” once a license is granted by Nevada’s gaming commission.  It is now legal to offer intrastate real money play poker in Nevada.  Multi-state pacts could soon develop.
