The Aria Resort and Casino is the centerpiece of MGM Resorts International CityCenter development and includes The Aria Poker Room located just off the main entrance to the valet and self parking plaza. The Aria Poker Room is 24 tables, all equipped with automatic shufflers. Restrooms, snack bar, sports book, and self parking are all located within a few yards of the poker room. The Aria Poker Room has a dedicated poker room cashier cage, an elevated top section for high limit games as well as "Ivey's Room" for very high stakes. It is common to see many televised professional players playing 300/600 Mix or higher in Ivey's Room.
The most common games spread at The Aria Poker Room include 1/3NLHE, 2/5NLHE, 5/10NLHE, 12/24 Mix, 1/3 & 2/5 Pot Limit Omaha, and 4/8LHE. The room also spreads very high limit poker, starting at 300/600 Mix most nights.
Aesthetically, the color palette of the Aria Poker Room is a mixture of dark browns, taupes, and deep reds. The Aria Poker Room chairs, with their multicolored backs, are swivel adjustable and on caster wheels. The room is surrounded by high definition flat screen televisions as well as a large metal playing card sculpture, which frames the entire venue.
Aria Poker Room utilizes a system for tracking the waiting lists, open seats, chip requests, and players earned comps. All players swipe at the table by presenting their MGM Resorts M Life card to the dealer upon arrival. All time is accounted for, and all open seats are automatically tracked at the brush podium. The audio system in the room allows for patrons outside of the room to hear their name being called, and soft music plays on all overhead speakers.
Regarding room organization, the venue is divided into three distinct areas. The main poker room floor encompasses 18 tables, which line the rail and allows for walk-by traffic for game observance. The elevated top section includes 5 tables and is usually reserved for high limit poker, starting at 5/10NLHE as well as the 12/24 Mix. In the center of the room is Ivey's Room (named after Phil Ivey), which is reserved for very high stakes poker.
The Aria Poker Room offers a $2 per hour comp rate on their MGM Resorts M Life card from 10AM to 5AM and $3 an hour comps rate from 5AM to 10AM every day. These earned comps can be used for tableside foodservice (offered 24 hours a day), or can be printed and used for many restaurants within the property.
The Aria Poker Room cocktail service offers complimentary Fiji water, frozen drinks, energy drinks, and most varieties of top shelf liquor and mixed drinks. Tableside food delivery is also available 24 hours a day for all guests and can be paid with comps using the MGM Resorts M Life card.
