Binion’s Gambling Hall & Hotel, iconic among poker players for its unmatched legacy in the game, today opens a brand-new poker room to build on its tradition and history as the place that made poker famous. Binion’s new poker room features 10 tables in a contemporary setting designed to make players feel right at home while experiencing excellent service and some of the best deals in the game including a max rake of $3 on all live games, $2 comps per hour of live poker play, tableside food service and special room rates.
“There’s a certain prestige associated with Binion’s poker, but the main reason poker players stay loyal to Binion’s is that we’re always moving forward with their wants in mind,” said Glenn Casale, director of casino operations for Binion’s Gambling Hall & Hotel. “When we were designing the new poker room, every concept was developed based on what our players had asked for—we even got their input on what kind of chairs they would like the most. Today it’s the pleasure of everyone at Binion’s to welcome the players to a new poker room that’s everything they wanted and more.”
The new Binion’s poker room combines the nostalgia of the renowned Binion’s heritage with the modern direction of the game. Historic photos are spaced around the room with eleven 42 and 50-inch plasma televisions for player viewing and entertainment. The Binion’s Gallery of Champions and Poker Hall of Fame are located in the upscale concierge area, where available games are presented on electronic boards. The new room is flanked by two full-service bars featuring cocktails and video poker.
Binion’s new poker room is yet another step completed in a series of refurbishments to the legendary property. Since the acquisition of Binion’s by TLC Casino Enterprises in March 2008, Binion’s has opened a new race and sports book, introduced the stylish new Benny’s Bullpen Sports Bar & Cigar Lounge and revamped its beloved $1 Million Display. In keeping with Binion’s reputation for some of the most player-friendly gaming around, Binion’s has improved its odds on blackjack and craps, added new table games, reconfigured the casino floor, and is nearing one hundred percent completion to Ticket In Ticket Out technology on all slot and video poker machines. More projects are expected to come online through the end of 2008 and early 2009 including a complete remodeling of all 366 guest rooms.
“When all eyes are looking at Las Vegas as one of the most hard-hit targets of today’s economy, Binion’s is proud to say that our progress has stayed on track,” said Tim Lager, general manager. “To strengthen our investment going forward, Binion’s will continue to put our guests and players first by making improvements to every element of the property while preserving our nostalgic brand, such as we did with the new poker room.”
Players can find a live game in Binion’s new poker room 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The new poker room is located in the Binion’s casino across from the $1 Million Display. Binion’s offers non-stop action and affordable buy-ins for every kind of player. Beginning November 1, players are eligible to qualify for the first Binion’s $50K Monthly Freeroll. To qualify for the $50K freeroll, players must accrue at least 25 hours of live play in the month of November or win one daily No Limit Hold’em tournament and hold a membership to Club Binion’s.
