WSOP Facelift for Bally’s Atlantic City

by | Published: Monday, February 24th, 2014

The infamous Wild Wild West casino area in Bally’s Atlantic City has undergone a facelift. Owner Caesars Entertainment—which also owns Harrah’s, Caesars, and Showboat in Atlantic City—just announced the overhaul that includes a state-of-the-art World Series of Poker-branded poker room.

The casino released a press release, announcing that the poker room—which previously sat on the sixth floor—would move to the Old West-themed area of the casino. It now features 42 live-game tables as well as dedicated tournament tables, which effectively means the amount of poker tables at Bally’s has doubled.

The room will heavily push the WSOP.com online brand, offering free WiFi, charging stations, and 20+ HDTV’s featuring all major local and national sports packages. Players will also have access to tableside food and beverages from Wild About Wings.

The poker room is not the only area of Bally’s being renovated. The Wild Wild West casino area will include a “Part Pit”, offering customers live entertainment from Thursday to Sunday.

“The Wild Wild West provides locals and visitors alike with a truly unique experience of branded entertainment, gaming, and unparalleled excitement, so with these latest additions the property can now lay claim to a top-notch poker room and a game-changing party pit,” said Kevin Ortzman, Senior Vice President and General Manager for Bally’s, Caesars, and Showboat Atlantic City. “We believe this development will forever evolve the face of poker in Atlantic City and expand our ability to provide guests with the highest quality of gaming and live entertainment opportunities available.”

Players will get direct access to the poker room when Bally reopens the casino’s Pacific Avenue entrance, which has been closed since late 2011m on Monday.

“Poker players like convenience. They don’t want to have to walk very far,” Freddie Niceta, vice president of table games for Caesars’ regional properties, told the Press of Atlantic City.
