Caesars-owned casino property Harrah's Resort in Atlantic City will be reopening its poker room on December 26th, putting the World Series of Poker branded room back on the docket for daily play.
The plans will see the rooms open every day from 12pm to 4am, with restrictions and measures in place to ensure player safety. There will be plexiglass dividers between each player and eight players per table max. Players will also be forced to wear face coverings, just as they are required in other areas of the casino. The poker room has been closed for nine months, remaining closed after the property reopened this past summer.
There will be two operating poker rooms in New Jersey after the WSOP room reopens. The Borgata is currently operating its 77 table poker room with just 30 tables active.
Commenting on the opening Harrah's Senior VP Ron Baumann said, "Harrah's Resort is thrilled to re-open our World Series of Poker room just in time for the new year, which will serve as the destination for poker in Atlantic City at our Caesars Entertainment resorts. We've spent the last several months ensuring we had enhanced health and safety measures in place, so both our players and team members can feel confident when they play at Harrah's, while allowing us to take an important step forward in responsibly returning more of our table games product to the market."
