Cards In The Air At The Aria Poker Room
December 18, 2021

CityCenter, the MGM's new $8.5 billion complex on the Las Vegas strip, was originally envisioned as its own city inside of Sin City; and if that's the case than the Aria Hotel and Casino- the only area dedicated to gaming in the complex- would have to be seen as the center of CityCenter; arguably putting Aria's new state of the art poker room at the heart of it all.

The new Aria Poker Room officially opened this week and already has seen significant traffic.  The room features 24 tables at varying limits, daily tournaments and a one table VIP room- offset from the main room- set up for high rollers looking for a big exclusive game.

Like the rest of Aria's 150,000-square-foot casino, this new poker room oozes opulence with a rich color scheme of golds and reds, soft comfortable chairs, more than a dozen HD flat screen televisions and a new paging system that texts player's cell phones directly when their seat becomes available, according to a recent review from

CityCenter, is the first major new development in Las Vegas in some time, and a much needed moment of optimism after what seems like way too long of only bad economic news for the city.  This new poker room, in many ways, mirrors that optimism in terms of Vegas' live poker scene, and as such is a more than welcome addition for the city's countless players.
