Caesars Entertainment Atlantic City and The World Series of Poker (WSOP) are changing the face of poker and entertainment in Atlantic City as Bally’s Atlantic City announced today the expansion of amenities in its Wild Wild West casino. The overhaul will include a state-of-the-art WSOP branded Poker Room, a new entertainment stage for bands and live-performances, referred to as the Party Pit, and the reopening of the casino’s Pacific Avenue entrance.
“The Wild Wild West provides locals and visitors alike with a truly unique experience of branded entertainment, gaming, and unparalleled excitement, so with these latest additions the property can now lay claim to a top-notch poker room and a game-changing party pit,” Kevin Ortzman, Senior Vice President and General Manager for Bally’s, Caesars, and Showboat Atlantic City. “We believe this development will forever evolve the face of poker in Atlantic City and expand our ability to provide guests with the highest quality of gaming and live entertainment opportunities available.”
The newly branded WSOP Poker Room at Bally’s will offer 42 live-game tables, as well as several tournament tables. With a focus on the customer and player experience, the new WSOP Poker Room will have a “luxury” feel with free WiFi for all players, free phone charging stations and 20+ HDTV’s positioned throughout the room with all major local and national sport packages (NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL). By partnering with the World Series of Poker (WSOP), the largest, richest and most prestigious gaming event in the world, Caesars Entertainment Atlantic City further distinguishes itself as a desired gaming destination.
In addition to the WSOP Poker Room’s gaming use, the renovation at Bally’s and the Wild Wild West will also include a Party Pit. The Party Pit’s newly created stage and floor is positioned directly across from the Mountain Bar, home of the 24/7 happy hour. The venue will feature several of the area’s widely recognized cover bands, such as Bobby Lynch Band, Johnny Drama, Slamm, Dirty Whiskey Duo, Big Bang Baby, Rachel Allyn Duo, and more.
The Wild Wild West will also highlight new food & beverage offerings delivered tableside to WSOP players courtesy of staple restaurant, Wild About Wings. Menu items include: Pork Sliders, Chicken Sandwiches, Burgers, Fries, and of course their signature Buffalo Wings.
This renovation follows Bally’s $5.6 million transformation of its main casino floor located at Boardwalk and Park Place and also marks the first major renovation for the property since the complete room overhaul to their Dennis Tower in 2008, for an approximate cost of $60 million.
