Poker is returning to Aliante Casino in North Las Vegas. The casino is installing three PokerPro machines in its table games pit.
A representative with Multimedia Games, the owner of PokerPro, confirmed with USPoker in December that its electronic tables would be installed at Aliante Casino in 2015. The exact date was not available at the time. The machines were placed on the Aliante Casino floor last week.
An Aliante Casino representative confirmed that employee training is underway this week. The electronic poker tables will go live in the coming weeks.
The Plaza, located in downtown Las Vegas, opened a PokerPro room in June 2013. The original room spread three tables in the high limit slot area of the casino. The Plaza poker room was relocated in 2014 and recently expanded to five tables.
The Plaza specializes in low limit tournaments and cash games. It spreads four daily tournaments. The highest daily tournament buyin is $12. Cash games generally have blinds of $.25/$.50. The Plaza poker room will spread any limit and game when there is enough interest.
PokerPro machines are programmed to deal Texas Hold’em, Omaha, Omaha High/Low, Seven Card Stud, and Seven Card Stud High/Low. No limit, pot limit, and fixed limit variations are available.
Aliante was owned by Station Casinos until it was turned over to lenders in March 2011. The casino offered live poker until November 2012. The original poker concept was rumored to be electronic machines from the start, however, it launched with live cards and dealers.
