will be interesting to see how it goes
Coming back in May. 20ish tables in the old high limit area downstairs. 5 handed, full rake. Lowest game will probably be 2/5, definitely no 1/2.
Returning Friday 23rd April. 4-12 tables initially, maybe 2/5, probably 5/10. Around 24 tables on weekends. Probably 6-max players per table initially.
Crown Perth has been 5 handed since about Sept 2020 (pub poker full ring).
They reduced rake for a while but eventually went back to full price.
The degens will play, and because of that the sharps will follow probably.
Played 1/3 last night for the first time since Feb 2020. Wait for all tables is lengthy, especially 1/3 and 2/5. Put my name down at 5:30 and table opened up about 6:10, there was 34 people in the queue at the time.
A couple of changes as well, no food at or near the tables (good), no progressive jackpot (bad) and hand santiser placed every two seats.
The most frustrating part is given it's 6 max only one person is supposed to be away from the table at the time, and they get picked up after two orbits. If a second person leaves the table they get picked up after one orbit. Completely ridiculous if you need to go to the toilet, have a cigarette etc that you'll be picked up in as little as 5 minutes.
Spoke with the dealer, Aussie Millions may be back in 2023, it just depends on demand. They may also add more poker tables in due course, however it's still to be determined.
Thanks for the update. I was going to check it out tonight/tomorrow night but that sounds sh*tCrown Poker is back, however every single player needs to obtain a Crown Club Card and hand it over before being allowed to play. This is to comply with the new player safety rules implemented by the government, as Crown now needs to keep track of players playing more than 12 hours a day. Six max still in effect for now, and multi hour wait times to get a table at weekends. The golden days of poker at Crown are over
