Poker returns to Rampart

Aug 27, 2007 3:50 AM

Live poker has returned to the Rampart Casino in Summerlin, which has just added four new tables on the casino floor.  

  The call to "shuffle up and deal" began on Monday (August 27).  The non-smoking poker tables are located under the dome, adjacent to the existing table game area.  

A variety of games from hold’em to stud will be offered along with a range of limits.  The games will also offer the players a good bargain with a maximum rake of only $4 per pot collected by the house.  

"Pardon the pun, but this is one of the best ”˜deals’ in town," said Patrick Hughes, director of table games at the Rampart Casino.  "The staff and I are just as excited as our guests about bringing poker back to the Rampart.  It will be run with the same professional, friendly and fun manner as the rest of our games."

Unlike many other casino poker rooms, the Rampart Casino is not bringing new staff to deal the games, but instead will be training existing dealers in poker.  "Their familiarity with the players and the casino operations will add to the comfort and enjoyment of the poker playing experience," added Hughes.

Cannery Casino Resorts, LLC, owns and operates the Cannery Casino & Hotel in North Las Vegas, and the Rampart Casino at the Resort at Summerlin, which is located within the JW Marriott Resort.
