Hollywood Casino Poker Room

Pardon me, but I did not have time to stick around long.  I had to pick up my wife.  But here goes.

The first thing that struck me when I entered Hollywood Casino was that they still have their ton of slot machines.  And there were some areas blocked off for construction.  My guess is that they eventually are going to have the table games toward the center of the casino where the construction is.  In the mean time the table games are located on the higher priced slot end of the main floor. 

I was there at 2:00 pm on a Wednesday afternoon and there were more people playing slots than at any other time I visited.  At that time they only had about 15 to 20 percent of the tables games open.  Mostly Black Jack, and Pai Gow.  No roulette, baccarat, or craps open at that point.

In my wandering, I found about 3 or 4 signs pointing (not very well) to the Poker Room.  I finally found it after going toward the race track side of the casino and finding a glass door with Poker Room stenciled on it.  From there it was up a stairwell (there is also an elevator) to the "under the grandstand" area.  I walked past the betting counters and there, roped off, was the poker room.  It looked like about 20 of the 27 tables in use at that time.

Above the roped off entrance area was a screen with the waiting lists displayed.  There were about 6 different kinds of poker being spread and interest lists for a couple of others.  What I saw listed ranged from 1/2 Limit Holdem to at least one table of 7 Stud, and one table of Omaha.   The tables looked clean, the chairs looked comfortable, and even the chips looked new.

Like I said, I did not have too much time to spend.  Hopefully next time I will be to give you more details.  Since as of today, the Poker Room is open 24/7, I may be able to go at a more convenient time and bring back a better report. 

If you have any questions, let me know.

Enjoy the Pokery Goodness!

Note:  I not being paid to mention Hollywood Casino, nor am I employed by Hollywood Casino.
