Venetian Details

The Venetian Poker Room is the largest poker room in Las Vegas, encompassing 59 tables, and offers a host of amenities and game selection to all players. Since The Venetian Poker Room opened in 2006 it has been repeatedly honored by the Las Vegas Review Journal as a “Best of Las Vegas” designation for overall customer service. The Venetian Poker Room offers many amenities such as a dedicated cashier cage, two separate high limit areas, tableside foodservice, Genesis Bravo list and comp management, dedicated tournament registration desk, and a customer lounge.

The Venetian Poker Room is located directly adjacent to the Las Vegas Strip frontage, with a main Strip entrance being located only a few feet from the west room entrance. Physically, the Venetian Poker Room is well spaced out which allows for high traffic and easy wheelchair access. All poker tables are fitted with automatic shufflers and the Genesis Bravo tableside management system that enables the dealers to notify chip runners, floor personnel, cocktail servers, and food porters when their services are needed. Aesthetically, the Venetian Poker Room matches the opulence of the rest of The Venetian Resort, with large crystal chandeliers, wall sconces, and leather wrapped armrests on the poker tables. The walls are adorned in leather and dark Mahogany veneers, framing 35 flat screen televisions on all sides. Outside of the Venetian’s Poker Room, three televisions are dedicated to displaying the waitlists for all available games, two from the front main entrance, and one from the side entrance on the south side. Ornate iron designs adorn the cashier cage and the main entrance foyer, which includes a rotunda like marble entryway, leading up the brush desk.

The Venetian’s Poker Room chairs are swivel/adjustable height and are on caster wheels for ease of movement. Leather seats are coupled with upholstered backs on all Venetian Poker Room chairs. Side tables are plentiful and are necessary due to the availability of foodservice, and a dedicated foodservice wait staff on hand 24 hours a day.

A popular offering of the Venetian Poker Room is its quarterly signature Deepstack Tournament Series, which fills the room to capacity, including over 60 additional “temporary” tournament tables, all of which have automatic shufflers, allowing events that eclipse 700 players.

The Venetian Poker Room offers a wide mix of games, including daily offerings of 1/2NLHE, 2/5NLHE, 5/10NLHE, 4/8LHE, 8/16LHE, 4/8 Omaha 8, 8/16 Omaha 8, and some mid limit offerings. Also, The Venetian Poker Room does not drop a jackpot in any of its cash games. Venetian is one of the five poker rooms out of the 58 in Las Vegas that do not collect a jackpot rake for cash promotions.

The Venetian Poker Room offers a large mix of player types. With over 7000 hotel rooms between Venetian and adjoining Palazzo, plus the known destination aspects of the venue, players of all different experience levels play at The Venetian daily. Venetian is well known for offering wide game selection enabling players to change tables should they find themselves in a game that is not to their liking.

The Venetian Poker Room cocktail service offers a very wide variety to all players, including complimentary Fiji branded water, top shelf liquor and call drinks, as well as a large variety of juices, soft drinks, and energy drinks. The Venetian is also one of Las Vegas’ only poker rooms to offer Barq’s Root Beer as well as Dr. Pepper.

The Venetian Poker Room comp system offers $2 per hour for all cash games, and larger buy in tournaments receive a paper comp voucher.

Comp dollars earned in the Venetian Poker Room can be redeemed at Noodle Asia, The Grand Lux Café, and the casino level food court, as well as payment for tableside food delivery.

Comp dollars can now be used for tournament buy-ins (in $10 increments), Entry Fee excluded.

Managed by long term poker veteran Kathy Raymond, the Venetian Poker Room is one of the busiest in Las Vegas, often spreading as many as 35 cash games nightly, with upwards of 50 during the quarterly DeepStack series.
