ynn Las Vegas announces Friday the reopening of its Poker Room located in the Encore casino. Beginning Wednesday, Sept. 30, at noon, guests can enjoy their favorite poker game seven days a week, 24-hours a day.
"We are thrilled to welcome guests back to the Poker Room," said Ryan Beauregard, executive director of poker operations at Wynn Las Vegas. "Our team is looking forward to delivering the same exceptional poker experience Wynn has always been known for in a safe and enjoyable environment for all."
In accordance with Nevada state mandates and Wynn's own Health and Safety Plan, the Wynn Poker Room has reduced the number of tables to ensure adequate physical distancing. Additionally, a maximum of eight players per table will be separated by plexiglass dividers and be required to wear proper face coverings during play. Following disinfection protocols seen throughout the rest of the resort, hand sanitizer stations are available at each table, and all table rails, cards and other frequent touchpoints will be continually sanitized throughout the day.
The poker room has not been open since mid-March, when the state ordered casinos and other nonessential businesses closed to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus. Its reopening follows a number of other poker rooms across the Las Vegas Valley, including those at Aria, The Venetian, South Point, The Orleans and Sahara Las Vegas.
