Find only the BEST Vegas tournaments

Looking to join a poker tournament in Las Vegas but don’t know where to start? Well, there’s no need to worry because we’ve got you covered!

We’ve have scoured the city for the best poker rooms to play in and below are the results of our search:

Caesar’s Palace

One of the more popular venues on this list, Caesar’s Palace has a sealed-off poker room with 25 tables. It looks rather plain and pretty much only offers no-limit games, but it’s still one of the best places to go for daily poker tournaments in Las Vegas.

The casino hosts pretty much the most number of daily tournaments in the city. The last time we checked, there are events at 9 am, 12 nn, 2 pm, 3 pm, 7 pm and 10 pm. Buy-ins range anywhere between $65 and $225. The entry fees to can be quite steep relative to the total buy-ins, however, so it’s something you may want to consider before signing up.

Check out the official Caesar’s Palace website for more information.

MGM Grand

Comfort is the name of the game at this casino’s poker room. With 22 tables spread across a rather spacious area – coupled with the venue’s generous offering of relatively lower stakes games – it’s the perfect place for anyone looking for a more relaxed playing experience.

MGM Grand hosts two $80-buy-in tournaments daily, one at 11 am and another at 7 pm, plus a $125-buy-in HORSE tournament at 7:15 pm. During weekends, the buy-in for the 7 pm event goes up to $125.

In addition to the daily events, however, the casino also hosts the thirty-plus-event Grand Challenge Tournament Series in late April. The buy-ins for these events range from as little as $150 to as much as $1,600.

Arguably one of the best poker venues around, Wynn’s action-filled yet extremely comfortable poker room has 26 tables and $2 per hour comps.

Unlike the first two venues on this list, however, Wynn only hosts one tournament a day at noon, which typically attracts around 40 players. The buy-in for this event is $125.

During winter, Wynn hosts a tournament similar to MGM Grand’s Grand Challenge Tournament Series. The event is called Wynn Classic and consists of around 15 events with buy-ins that range anywhere between $500 and $15,000.

Golden Nugget

If you’re looking to play some lower-intensity games, then head on over to this little 13-table gem right at the heart of downtown Las Vegas. The people playing here are mostly older individuals so there’s a very low chance you’ll encounter anyone playing overly aggressively (or creatively).

The venue hosts four daily tournaments:

  • 11 am – $65 buy-in
  • 7 pm – $65 buy-in
  • 3 pm – $50 buy-in
  • 10 pm – $50 buy-in

On Sundays, however, Golden Nugget hosts its Special Sunday Tournament at 11 am. It has a $125 buy-in and a guaranteed prize pool worth $5,000.

Interestingly, this casino also offers free poker lessons at 10 am daily for anyone who’s just starting out. For more information about it (and the venue itself), head on over to the official Golden Nugget website.

The Venetian

Probably the biggest poker room in all of Las Vegas, The Venetian is home to a total of 52 tables carefully arranged inside an exceptionally spacious (and comfortable) room. If luxury is what you’re looking for (in addition to some exciting poker action, of course), then this is definitely the place for you.

The Venetian hosts two daily poker tournaments: one at 12:05 pm and another at 7:05 pm. The buy-ins range from $125 to $340 with guarantees between $4,000 and $20,000.
