Palms Casino Closes Poker Room

The Palms Casino in Las Vegas has shut down its poker room on Thursday. 

According to Brian Pempus of CardPlayer.com, the room likely had trouble getting enough cash game players to sustain a healthy venue.

From CardPlayer.com:

Though poker in Nevada is on the upswing for the first time since 2007, the number of live tables in the state was 774 in 2013, the lowest number since 2005. Also, the number of rooms fell to 88, the lowest since 2004. The poker boom in Nevada was over by 2008.

Live and online poker in Nevada brought in $123,891,000 during 2013, up from $123,253,000 in 2012. According to research from the University of Nevada Las Vegas, 2013’s poker revenue figure represents the first increase year-over-year since 2006 to 2007.
