Wynn Resorts is the first major Las Vegas strip property to announce it will reopen without poker.
Predictions, like the ones we have previously made at SI’s Gambling Today, have painfully come to fruition now that we have learned that Wynn Las Vegas will not be offering live poker when it reopens as part of “Phase 3” of Governor Steve Sisolak’s ‘Road To Recovery for Nevada.”
In recent years, Wynn Resorts had moved its poker room from the Wynn over to its adjoining property Encore, creating easily the most comfortable and alluring poker room in the city. The casino operator originally included live poker as Section 11 in their detailed reopening document released last month. However, it appears that management came to the decision that many players would balk at the Nevada Gaming Control Board’s rules of limiting poker to four-handed play, making it an unprofitable endeavor.
