The poker room at Eastside Cannery is very small. It spreads just four tables. It is not really a room either. These poker tables are located in the middle of the casino floor. A passerby might even have to look closely to realize it is poker being dealt at the tables. They tend to look just like the table game pit located next to it. The poker podium looks just like the ones pit bosses use.

Environment

The Eastside Cannery’s poker room is nothing special. It is not a room at all. The tables offer automatic shufflers. One major annoyance is the smoke from the nearby slots and table game pit.

The place is a break-in joint for dealers. The only people in the games are low-rolling locals. It is a great place to pass a day for a local that lives in the area, but tourists will not need to take a drive over to see it.

Eastside Cannery Poker Room Opinion

If we lived in the area then there would be a reason to play here. Even then, Sam’s Town is right next door, where more cash games and bigger tournaments are available. Those in the area that only have these two rooms available may want to check out both.
