More Info Got It! Dealers were really friendly and patient which is rare where Im from. There were players of all skill levels that I could tell at my table. Atmosphere was very friendly and welcoming. Not too serious or intimidating. There were a couple sharks at my table but everyone kept it pretty casual. Didn't know what to expect at a poker room in Vegas as this was my first time. I definitely prefer this poker room to those back home at the tribal casino's where you're mostly playing against degenerates and losers, and dealers who really hate their jobs.
I was really disappointed in my last visit. They never moved from their "temporary" location, so I guess it's permanent now. It's really just an open area adjacent to some slot machines and not really a room at all. In the past, their daily tournaments well attended and well run. This time there were only nine entrants in the 2 PM Tournament and they had 10 minute levels and Antes starting almost right away. This caused players to play much more aggressively and at least for me it just wasn't fun.
Management staff need training on how to talk with customer here at mgm poker room. Poker dealers are great but the floor managers are not. Room is small and looks every outdated. Too bad that they have great dealers but not the same management team. Yeah, it's a smaller card room on the strip. However my husband loves playing here. It always generates a good late night crowd.
The pit bosses and dealers are always pretty nice and entertaining. I like to sit and watch from time to time, it's a pretty interesting game! As a whole the dealers seemed to be on the burned-out side. I would rather play elsewhere. The manager on duty Veronica has very poor customer service. Argued with me about a miscommunication of food credits and refused to solve the problem. I then had to go talk to the manager at the Avenue Cafe Anthony who was awesome. This is not my first time staying at the MGM but this is the first time I've experienced such poor customer service.
Horrible experience at this poker room. Service is slow for cocktails. It takes forever to get a drink. For such a big casino they should allow the guests to choose the amount paid for valet, we paid to drop off and to pick up afterward a show at MGM grand hotel and casino Upon arrival the gentleman at the valet informed my husband "if you're watching a show you do not have to worry we got you".
When speaking to valet after the show the manager "Tyler" informed us there was a fee regardless if there was a show watched, and then stated "there a sign somewhere in the way in of valet".
The valet team should have a course in customer service, being a local I will not be making an effort to go back to the MGM grand hotel and casino which is very unfortunate as my husband and I truly loved the Jabbawockeez show and wanted to bring all of our family Visiting Las Vegas from England and as a lover of poker thought i'd hit up a couple of spots on the strip.
Choose MGM as their Tables were all in great condition and had automatic shufflers installed. The chips looked brand new and felt nice to hold. Dealers really friendly, and players seemed friendly in general. Happy with the three hours play. MGM used to have one of the better poker rooms when it was right behind the sports book. The old setup made it much more spacious. Now, it's very crowded, as someone described kind of an afterthought.
They used to have a good balance of limit and no limit games. Service is also very slow, probably because it much further for the waitresses to walk, and also hard to maneuver between tables. Poker room is dark, sometimes hard for older people to see cards. Managers have an attitude. Sometimes tournaments are cancelled due to lack of dealers.
On the other hand, you are playing poker in Vegas. It doesn't get better than that. Still, other rooms are available. The last time I was here was in or , when the MGM Grand Poker room enjoyed a prime spot in the middle of the ground floor, just across from the lions.
It's like that time I was at a two-bit strip club at closing time, and the lights came on. The poker room has also been moved, but maybe it would be better off being gone. Situated off to the side somewhere and playing with the dregs of society, I realized that some things just don't last.
And sometimes there is no need to revisit those fabled locations of our past. I am not a gambler, and if I did, I never win money. And if I did and lost money, I wouldn't have a gambling problem. I have only seen strip clubs in movies, and only for as long as it takes for me to change the channel or to skip the scene on my DVD.
It was a real chill vibe and competitive.. Im not the ultimate poker pro, but the dealers were cool and treated everyone fairly. Definitely recommend MGM's poker room to play some hold em..
After planning my day around the Friday 2: They have also downsized the room and it is very cramped now. I liked the old poker room better. The new 'room' feels like an afterthought. Now, the area is very small and cramp, and seems to have been placed just off to the side of the casino wherever they had extra room. I figure this is a temporary location during renovations, but during my last 2 visits to Vegas it was stuck off in this corner. Much diff than the variety of NL and Limit games that used to be available in the old location Tried my first poker tournament this weekend and they ran everything quite well and efficiently.
Since I've never been in a casino-based tournament I don't have a frame of reference, but they seemed to run it well and the dealers were great.
The poker room at the MGM Grand is pretty deep inside the casino, hidden further from view than the table games and slot machines that make the house more money. The room is not the biggest I've seen, but it's fairly nice and you get seated pretty fast.
The dealers are friendly and professional, and you get free drinks while you gamble. I'd heard beforehand that the MGM poker room was easy money, and the softness of my table didn't contradict that description. We were playing nine-handed, and five of the players had no idea what they were doing, while the rest were so tight that you could just fold any time they made a move.
It was actually pretty boring, but I won almost every hand I got involved in, with one fold to an A9 that hit his two pair on the river. I didn't see any of that type at my table.
Until I come back to the MGM poker room and lose some big hands, I will have a rosy view of the place. I've also heard that it's a goldmine late at night, since it's close to a club.
I love poker but hate losing, so I hope this place is nice to me when I come back. There was something both cool and sacrosanct about playing poker in the largest resort hotel in Vegas. It made you feel like a contender, no matter your level of skill. It's two daily tournaments were also quite affordable, and there was always a nice ambience there, given its friendly dealers, chatty but not annoying players, and on occasion a couple of pseudo-celebrity reality show star servers.
But during the MGM Grand's constant renovations, the poker room was moved from its central location to a side area that lacks the same grandiosity and distinction, and feels like an afterthought.
Back in January, the poker room was back where it should be, and in all its glory, but only three months later, it was moved back to that dingy side space because the casino needed its home for some Academy of Country Music awards function. It's that kind of thinking from casino management that sends a clear signal to poker players: I imagine the same kind of thinking inspired the closure of the MGM Grand's famous and much beloved lion habitat.
That kind of thinking leaves a sour taste in my mouth. If they don't care, why should I?
