Las Vegas is where the high rollers go for a dose of no limit Holdem. It is where poker evolved from fledgling casino game to OMG WSOP money spinner.
Aside from the cards and the unacclaimed status as poker incubator, Vegas offers an infinite array of the good stuff in terms of nightlife, entertainment and fabulously fine dining. It is after all Sin City where sinners gather in big gasping groups to be bad, real bad… coke snorting, head-butting b-a-d!
The truth is not all of us can make it to Vegas. Some are bound by dollar and cent budgets and others by the longitudinal and latitudinal limitations of geography. For us homies the only way to cash in on cash games is to play poker online - and at Intertops Poker of course!
If you do have the time, money and inclination to mosey on through the Nevada Desert for a spot of oasis-infused Texas Hold’em, here are three awesome Vegas gaming halls and poker rooms that provide tournament poker with kinda cool prize pools.
Wynn Las Vegas
Wynn Las Vegas is where the well-heeled go to play. It is plush, luxurious, opulent and genteel. In online poker terms it’s the Big Slick of the Strip.
Wynn is the kind of place where you will find Lionel Ritchie crooning to the fairer sex, Dwight Yoakam strumming his guit and John Cleese doing what he does best… being faintly ridiculous!
In terms of deep stacks, deals and double belly buster straight draws, there are 28 poker tables plus weekly poker tournaments that pay up to $30K guaranteed.
Alternatively, there is always the option to head to your oh so expensive hotel room, fire up your phone and play poker online from the comfort of your humungous king size bed.
Hit the online poker jackpot and there is a good chance you’ll have someone svelte and luscious nuzzling up to your armpit!
Want to get some at the Wynn Las Vegas? We are talking cash games here not purty little ladies with uncontrollable high roller fever.
If you do, here is the what’s what of the Wynn poker tourneys that are always scheduled to start at high noon:
- Monday through Thursday - $5,000 GTD $120 + $20 No Limit Hold’em

Bally’s Las Vegas Hotel and Casino
If you are into a bit of X-rated entertainment and Harry Potter inspired hullabaloo, Bally’s Las Vegas is the face of the raunchy side of Vegas. It is also home to a poker room conveniently located between a 24-hour deli and the Jubilee Theatre.
That means you can ante up, hit the bagels with a side portion of slaw and rev up the testosterone without leaving your immediate surroundings.
Aside from the topless revues and adult’s only live shows, Bally’s is home to Tequila bars, hot dog emporiums and upscale steak houses that serve Texas size T-bones, rumps and sirloins.
Is the lack of very good victuals in the immediate vicinity a downside of online poker? No way Jose! At Intertops Poker you can play poker online anywhere where there’s Wi-Fi!
Now to the serious stuff - and by that we mean Bally’s bargain box accommodation and the scheduled poker tournaments of course. At this here Vegas Casino you can blow in at virtually any time of the day and buy-in to a bit of action.
At Bally’s, tournaments are held daily in the following structures and at the following times:

If that doesn’t quite swing it, there is an endless selection of $1K and $2K GTDs and online poker freerolls at Intertops Poker - the really buff place to play poker online!
At the Golden Nugget it is more ‘here’s looking at you kid’ than high end décor and plush surrounds. As any serious poker player will tell you, the Fremont Street establishment is the home of High Stakes Poker - the TV show that spread the poker playing gospel far and wide.
It is gambling with a gold rush theme and once you have got your wagers away - and won a ton of money too - you can head over to the oh wow entertainment zone and get blown away by live performances and local bands.
Think Pam Tillis and Lorraine Morgan, Gary Puckett and the Union Gap, the Guess Who and Gary Lewis and the Playboys and you’ve got the idea. Aside from the toe tapping, head bopping tunes there is a poker tournament held twice a day - every day - and a big kahuna on Sunday.
When can you re-arrange your stack at the Golden Nugget? Here is a rundown of the tourney schedule:
- Daily at 11 am and 7 pm - $70 No Limit Hold’em with $10,000 in chips and 20 minute levels
- Sunday at 11 am - $5,000 $125 GTD No Limit Hold’em with $15,000 in chips and 20 minute levels in the first eight and 30 minute levels thereafter
