Located on the Las Vegas Boulevard, Bill’s Gamblin’ Hall’s poker room served players from its grand opening in summer 2006 until closure in early 2013. Plans are underway for Bill’s to reopen under the name of Gansevoort Las Vegas in the future. As always, Poker Atlas will be the first on the scene at the new venue with reports of the games available.
In its previous incarnation, Bill’s was a noted venue for low-rollers as one of the only places in town to spread $0.50-$1 no-limit hold’em cash games. This game was taken seriously by newcomers and bankroll builders alike, with a wide array of buy-ins allowed between $20 and $200. No-limit hold’em was the main game of choice at Bill’s in cash games and tournaments alike. Bill’s offered several promotions to its poker players, including an aces-cracked promotion and the rare privilege of a kings-cracked promotion for several hours per day. The venue offers $1-per-hour comps to players (even tournament and micro-stakes cash players), which could be exchanged for food and the other typical casino services. A progressive bad-beat jackpot was also offered.
Aesthetically, Bill’s operated an old-fashioned yet neat layout. The room’s small arrangement of tables was roped off from the rest of the facilities to give good visibility to anyone walking past. Spotlights and chandeliers overhead provided a well-lit and comfortable environment for play, with the room also being strictly smoke-free. Each polished wood poker table was set with jet-black economy leather chairs atop a bright patterned carpet. Just beyond the poker area, the chips cage was placed in the middle of the gaming floor, near the slot machines. With cocktail waitresses always on hand, this meant that most amenities were well within reach of the poker tables.
