The closure of the Luxor card room will be the latest of poker room closures to take place in Las Vegas, with the Monte Carlo shutting down their poker room in April. The Hard Rock in Las Vegas was another venue that shut down their poker operations, one month earlier in March.
With the shutdown next month, Las Vegas will only have around 33 poker rooms in total, with 18 located on the strip. The number of poker rooms available in Sin City has dwindled within the past six years as twenty-two poker rooms have shut down within that time frame.
Despite the shutdown of the Luxor poker room, MGM Resorts International will still have a solid poker offering in Las Vegas. The company will have operating poker rooms at the Bellagio with 37 tables in action and the Aria with 24 tables in operation.
Once the poker room is closed, the Luxor will still be home to premium gaming. The facility has 120,000 square feet of gaming space that includes over 2,000 slot machines, video poker, and multi-game machines. The gaming floor is always up to date with the latest releases. On top of gaming offerings, the casino is home to several restaurants, a food court with grab-and-go options, bars and lounge spaces, a spa and salon as well as theater and so much more.
