Poker At Silverton Pulled From The Muck

November 9, 2012 at 3:06 PM | by | ()

Cards were in the air at Silverton Casino just this past January, but the poker room folded soon after due to low demand. But, it appears poker at the woodsy lodge is back on the table again. Pokerati reports that Cantor Gaming, which already operates the casino's sports book, will be bringing back the poker room under its wing.

Silverton's website still shows the room closed as of today with no hint of a comeback, but Pokerati was told to expect a Thanksgiving-ish opening celebrated by some sort of special event. Cantor feels that poker and sports betting "go hand is hand" and will look to make it as convenient as possible for poker players to get sports bets in via their mobile betting technology.

Coincidentally, we stopped in to the Silverton just prior to catching news of the room's return and lamented its loss. Silverton is a small casino, but one with a vibe we very much dig so we hope the room sees enough action to stick. Have those displaced Trop players found a new home yet?

In related news, Pokerati also hints that poker at Bill's and Imperial Palace may disappear at least temporarily at some point in the near future. Potentially leaving two fewer Vegas spots to lowroll for sets.

Update 11/15/12: In other poker room news, VegasInc reports that Treasure Island's has taken over Canter's Deli and is throwing a grand re-opening bash on Friday November 16. Daily tournament guarantees and payouts for royal ($250) and straight ($100) flushes are planned as ongoing promotions.
