Nevada casinos may reopen on June 4, but poker must be 4-handed



Nevada casinos have been given the green light to reopen on June 4, but the Nevada Gaming Control Board says casinos wanting to reopen their poker rooms must do it with no more than four players at a table.

Here is the information that Ante Up has been able to confirm through official sources:

Casinos reopening with poker: Orleans, Peppermill Reno ($6 timed rake), Peppermill Wendover and Venetian Las Vegas (June 5, masks optional, reduced rake, $100 SNGs)

Casinos reopening without poker immediately: Atlantis Casino Resort Spa, Bellagio, Boulder Station, Grand Sierra Resort, Green Valley Ranch, Palace Station, Red Rock, Sahara Las Vegas,  Santa Fe Station, Wendover Nugget and Wynn Las Vegas.

Casinos reopening with no mention of whether poker will open or not: Cannery Hotel, Club Calneva, Golden Nugget Las Vegas, MGM Grand, Sam’s Town Las Vegas, Silver Legacy, Westgate Las Vegas (June 18)

Caesars Entertainment will be reopening its Caesars Palace, Flamingo Las Vegas, Harrah’s Lake Tahoe and Harrah’s Laughlin properties on June 4, and corporate-wide guidance says poker will be four-handed, but none of the properties have independently confirmed that their poker rooms will reopen on June 4.

Aria, Excalibur, Mandalay Bay and Mirage will not be among the first wave of MGM Resorts to reopen.
