Poker FAQ

Comp Dollars
Poker card holders can earn comp dollars, ranging from 50 cents to $2 an hour. Pokercomps are now 1 for 1 with the new Advantage Club for use in the Quarter. The accumulated comp dollars may also be applied toward room charges or used to purchase selected show tickets.

Rating System and Room Reservations
The Tropicana Poker Club uses the Bravo rating system that tracks your play every hour, while you sit on any live game. Once seated, the dealer will swipe you in!  Each live game earns comp dollars which are now 1 for 1 with the new Advantage Club for use in the Quarter. Accumulated comp dollars may also be applied toward room charges or used to purchase selected show tickets.  The minimum average hours required for our reduced poker room rates is four hours. To check your average, please call 1-888-POKER-AC.

Where do I register for a tournament?
Registration takes place one hour before each tournament, at the tournament podium, which is centrally located in the poker room. Registration will remain open until the end of the third blind level. Once sold out, alternates will be selected based on their position in line. During the first three (3) rounds of the tournament and as seats become available, the player is allowed to register and be seated in the tournament and will be issued chips that were subject to the blinds that occurred in that seat.

Can I pre-register or register by phone?
Registration for all tourney events must be done in person and paid for in cash.

Do I need a player’s card to enter into a tournament?
Yes. All participants must have a Tropicana Poker Club Card in order to register. If you do not have one, simply ask us for an application, and the card is ready within minutes! Poker cards must be transacted in person. Bring ID.
