New Las Vegas poker room

28 February 2024

A major Las Vegas resort is completely redesigning its poker room, and it will become one of the biggest and most modern in Sin City.

Plus, the World Series of Poker just published its schedule for 2024, while online poker shared liquidity gets a big boost.

Poker players rejoice as plans for a brand new poker room at The Venetian Las Vegas have been revealed. This coming after the seeming consolidation of poker to the Horseshoe for Caesars properties, as they move their beloved World Series of Poker events to the redesigned venue.

Now, the updated Venetian poker room will rise to the challenge, with some fifty tables spread across a 14,000 square foot layout. That would make it the largest poker room in Vegas, and throw down the gauntlet to all who would challenge them (hear that MGM Resorts and Caesars Entertainment?).

The new room is going to open on Level 2 the casino sometime this summer, which will make it conveniently located from either the Venetian or the Palazzo self-parking area. The move will also mean a closer proximity to the Grand Canal Shoppes.

Chief Gaming Officer at The Venetian, Danny Ruiz, stated that “The expansion of the poker room is a significant milestone in our ongoing efforts of re-imagining the gaming experience at The Venetian Resort.” The relocation of the Venetian poker room also aims to improve accessibility and convenience for guests, making it easier access to the room from different areas of the casino and resort.

Additionally, the upgraded room will offer a self-serve soft drinks and coffee, dedicated restroom facilities, and televisions placed conveniently throughout the location. There will also be USB and USB-C charging ports at each seat, as well as a dedicated streaming facility for vlogging and live-streaming.

The Venetian believes their new poker room is an ‘investment in their players’, and they cannot wait for it to debut this summer. The room was designed to provide an elevated playing experience and everything from design details to enhancements were made with the players in mind.” Ruiz said.
