In an exciting development, privately held Maverick Gaming LLC has teamed up with Bally's Corp., the operators of the legendary Tropicana resort, to bring a brand-new poker room to the iconic Las Vegas Strip.

The Maverick Gaming Poker Room will soon grace the premises of the 66-year-old resort, offering poker enthusiasts a thrilling and inclusive gaming experience.

While specific details about the partnership remain undisclosed, Maverick Gaming currently owns four commercial casinos in Nevada and three in Colorado. They also operate 23 card rooms in Washington in collaboration with tribal enterprises.

This collaboration between Maverick Gaming and Bally's presents an opportunity to enhance the poker scene at the Tropicana, further solidifying its status as a premier destination for gaming enthusiasts.

Jeremy Weinstein, the Chief Marketing Officer for Maverick Gaming, expressed the company's vision to attract players through twice-daily tournaments and the lowest rake—the commission paid to the casino on games—on the entire Strip. The poker room is scheduled to open its doors in June, with an official announcement regarding the opening date and operating hours expected soon.

Situated in close proximity to Bally's Big Bet Poker livestream broadcast studio, the new poker room will benefit from its strategic location within the Tropicana.

The partnership was forged with the assistance of network showrunners and executive producers of Bally's Big Bet Poker live stream and television series Houston Curtis and Rick Mahr of Outlaw Media Group, backed by Maverick CEO Eric Persson, a renowned poker player.

We are very excited to be working with Mr. Persson and Maverick Gaming in an effort to also raise the stakes on inclusivity and affordability, treating players of all levels like VIPs at our tables.

The poker room at Tropicana is expected to offer No Limit Hold 'Em games with different blind options, including $1 small blinds and $3 big blinds in one game and $2 small blinds with $5 big blinds in another. This variety aims to cater to a wide range of players and preferences, ensuring a dynamic and engaging poker environment.

Potential of the Project and Future of Tropicana

With both Bally's Corp. and Maverick Gaming LLC being big players in the gambling industry scene, poker players will feel right at home in the exciting collaboration in the face of the Maverick Gaming Poker Room.

The future looks exciting for the Tropicana. The land-based casino and hotel is a very well-liked venue as it is, this poker room may become one of the hit locations on the Strip and has the implications to bring great revenue to both parties.
