Tropicana Hotel & Casino

Well, it doesn’t make too much sense now anymore to give you a Tropicana Poker Room review as this had been shut down only shortly after I left Vegas. I will tell you about it anyway and publish a second blog today to make up for it. :wink: " class="wp-smiley" src="" />

So, originally during my August stay I had not planned at all to play here as the room was dead. It was a nice room, quietly situated next to the Sports Book….and a little hidden. Most people didn’t even know that there WAS a poker room at all.

Jamie Gold had been the “face” of this room. It was called the “Jamie Gold” room in the beginning and he actually played here quite often himself. For whatever reason the cooperation had been cancelled though earlier this year.

The only reason I actually ended up playing a session here was because my flight home had been delayed one day. Virgin Atlantic had booked all passengers into the Tropicana, paid for dinner and breakfast and offered a free shuttle to the airport. That was literally: Winner, winner, chicken dinner! A free day in Vegas. Awesome!

When I let the world know about my extra day on Facebook and stay at the Tropicana I was informed that there in an interesting Mixed Game Monday evenings. I am not that good in all those variants that are not Hold’em or Omaha, but I can obviously play them all. So I though “Meh…why not!”.

Unfortuantely that was again the only table running and the atmosphere in the group wasn’t too nice. Everybody seemed to know each other and they didn’t really make me feel welcome at the table. First “Crazy Pineapple 8 or better” broke my neck a little, I worked my way back up in Baduci. I stood up with $19 losses as I just simply did not enjoy myself.

It’s no surprise that the room is gone now. They haven’t done a hell lot to promote it right…and Jamie Gold was a questionable choice anyway…

Here is the result of my 37 minutes at the Tropicana:

  • Poker Room Quality (0-10): 5 – free WiFi, pleasant atmosphere, but a hell lot of tumbling weed
  • Comps: $1/hour
  • Promos: High Hand, Cash Drawings, Rakeback
  • Player’s Card: Trop Plus
  • Hours Cash Game:  0:37
  • Profit Cash Game: -$19
  • Hours Tournament: 0
  • Profit Tournament: $0
  • Total Profit: -$19

Right opposite is the Excalibur where I had stayed the first week of my trip.
