This strategic collaboration aims to enhance the gaming experience at the Tropicana and further solidify its position as a premier destination for poker enthusiasts in Las Vegas. Maverick Gaming’s involvement in the project brings substantial industry expertise and should allow the venue to draw attention away from recent controversies.
The New Room Will Cater to Both Professionals and Novices
Establishing a Maverick Gaming Poker Room at the Tropicana should hopefully attract new and experienced poker enthusiasts. Maverick Gaming’s position as a highly regarded casino operator will be instrumental in delivering exceptional gaming experiences to the casino resort’s poker offerings, elevating them above the competition. The planned poker venue will cater to all types of players, enhancing the entertainment options available to guests.
Outlaw Media Group founders Houston Curtis and Rick Mahr were instrumental in finalizing the agreement. They are the executive producers of Bally’s popular Big Bet Poker TV series and live stream, helping them recognize the value of such a partnership. They lauded Maverick owner Eric Persson’s expertise, describing him as a tremendous asset to the company.
Persson’s industry expertise and proven ability to build successful poker rooms align with Bally’s omnichannel network.

Persson will also participate in Bally’s Big Bet Poker, building hype for the new venue. According to officials involved with the project, this collaboration aligns with Tropicana’s commitment to providing a diverse range of gaming experiences catering to seasoned poker players and casual enthusiasts and allowing even novices to feel like VIPs.
Bally’s Reaffirms Its Commitment to the Iconic Property
This bit of good news comes at a critical time for the Tropicana. The casino resort recently faced criticism regarding the planned construction of an Oakland Athletics stadium nearby, which may force the venue to close for 18 to 24 months. Although Bally’s later stated they would keep the property open for as long as possible, rising uncertainty among workers caused the Culinary Union to get involved and secure employee rights.
A high-profile addition like the Maverick Gaming Poker Room is just what Bally’s needs to reaffirm its lasting commitment to the Tropicana in its continued efforts to continuously evolve and innovate, keeping the iconic casino resort relevant in the face of ongoing uncertainty in the industry. The two companies’ shared commitment to excellence will ensure that the Tropicana will continue to stand out among the competition.
This will not be your typical run-of-the-mill poker venue. It’s a place where adrenaline meets attitude and poker dreams come alive.

The agreement between Maverick Gaming and Bally’s Corporation represents a mutually beneficial collaboration. By combining their strengths, the two companies can create a dynamic and thriving poker room capable of meeting the ever-changing industry demands and capturing the spirit of Las Vegas poker.
