Planet Hollywood Poker Room

planet hollywood poker roomThe Planet Hollywood poker room spreads just nine tables.  This is nearly half the tables it once hosted in its previous location behind the table games pit.  It has since moved to an area by the Planet Hollywood sports book.  The traffic in this location is far below what it once was, but the poker room continues to draw players to its loose games in the party atmosphere.

Planet Hollywood Cash Games

The main game at Planet Hollywood is $1/$2 No Limit Texas Hold’em.  The buyin is $100-$300.  This is the only regular game spread at the Planet Hollywood poker room.

Planet Hollywood Rake

Planet Hollywood is one of the few Las Vegas poker rooms that rake 10% up to $5.  The others are Flamingo, Rio, and Bally’s.  All are owned by Caesars Entertainment.

Planet Hollywood Tournaments

There are four daily No Limit Texas Hold’em tournaments at Planet Hollywood.  The buyin is $80 with $59 of that going to the prize pool.  The times are 10am, 1pm, 4pm, and 9pm.

Planet Hollywood Poker Promotions

Planet Hollywood poker players qualify for a few promotions that are funded with a $1 jackpot drop per hand.  All players receive $1 an hour that may be used for comps, including hotel, food, and massages at the table.  We highly recommend using food comps at Earl of Sandwich, the 24-hour deli located just steps from the poker room.

The promotions at Planet Hollywood vary.  These can be high hands, a bad beat jackpot, or splash pots when a player makes four of a kind or better using two cards.  The promotional offers change each month.

Planet Hollywood does not offer a poker rate for the hotel.  This is true of all poker rooms owned by Caesars Entertainment.

Environment

The casino floor at Planet Hollywood is one big party.  The poker room benefits from this.  It is not as great as it once was now that it is off-center from the pit games, but the sports book provides some traffic.  The poker room is very noisy compared to most other rooms.  It can also be smokier.

The Bravo Poker system is used to manage table waitlists and comps.  Available games are displayed in the Bravo Poker app.

Planet Hollywood Poker Room Opinion

There are two ways to look at Planet Hollywood’s poker room.  As a local, it is a pain to play at due to the parking situation.  The parking deck is a long walk from the casino, requiring passage through a shopping district.  The parking structure can also be a problem due to access and limited space available on desirable levels.  This does not make me want to run to Planet Hollywood to play poker. On the other hand, parking at Planet Hollywood is still free.

Tourists that stay on the Las Vegas Strip will not be bothered by this at all.  In fact, the discouragement of locals is a reason to play due to the higher game quality.
