UPDATE: In August 2013, the M Resort closed its poker room and replaced it with a slot tournament area.
According to the M Resort’s Facebook page, the M Resort poker room is running daily $1000 guarantee poker tournaments again. They are daily at 10am and 6pm. The buy in is $60 ($47+ $13 entry fee). That means 78% goes into the prize pool. It only requires 22 players in order to get a prize pool over $1000, so this is really more of a marketing ploy, but the poker room is nice and that $13 entry fee is lower than that of $60 tournaments on the Strip. For example, Bally’s $60 tournaments charge an $18 entry fee, meaning only $42 of your $60 goes into the prize pool.
There are no details on the M Resort website, but you can call the poker room at 702-797-1777 for more information.
The Bellagio Poker Room is giving players $2 per hour in comps for playing poker at any of its tables. Just make sure to use your mlife card when you play.
You can also call the poker room up to an hour before you arrive to get your name on the waiting list. The phone number is 702-693-7291.
