No more poker room?

That pretty much sums it up.

 

In a statement released by Revel after the announcement was made public:

 

"After careful consideration and in an effort to further improve the overall operating performance of Revel Casino Hotel, management has made the decision to close our poker room operations effective August, 2013. Offering poker as an amenity on the property will be considered in the future as a component of an overall strategy related to our online opportunities. We have a very talented team of professionals who work in poker operations and we are actively working to place as many as we can in other areas." (NBC 40)

 

Revel Casino may open poker again to visitors, once Internet gambling is launched in New Jersey.
