    Luxor Casino In Las Vegas To Close Poker Room June 18

    Nevada’s main casino corridor will lose another poker room when the Luxor closes its nine-table room on June 18. The closure of the MGM-owned card room follows Monte Carlo’s move to shutter its poker room last month. Monte Carlo is also an MGM property.

    The news about Luxor was first reported by Las Vegas-based journalist John Mehaffey.

    The three-table poker room at Hard Rock closed in March. Twenty two poker rooms in Las Vegas have closed within the last six years and change, leaving Sin City with about three dozen rooms.

    The end for Luxor’s poker room will leave the Las Vegas Strip area with 18 poker rooms and about 260 tables. In 2007, which was the height of the poker boom in Nevada in terms of market size, there were 26 Las Vegas Strip poker rooms with a combined 396 tables.

    The move by Luxor comes at a time of little growth for poker in Las Vegas. Over the 12 months prior to May 1, 2017, Strip area poker rooms took in $77.6 million from cash games, virtually unchanged compared to the same period a year prior.

    Honestly didn't even know they had one, I've been to vegas countless times and the only time I even bothered walking in to that place was when I was like 13 years old with my family lol.

    Played here one time wasted out of my mind. Somehow ended up playing 1/2? nl in the Luxor poker room when I should have been sleeping at the Monte Carlo.

    Managed to win 200 then entered the ~9am Excalibur tournament. All my friends were worried I was in jail or passed out in the desert until they found me at the final table.

    Took down 2nd in the lotto tournament. After buying everyone breakfast slept until 8pm that night.
