Talking Stick Resort installs massive scoreboard in its poker room
March 23, 2012
Talking Stick Resort, an enterprise of the Arizona-based Salt River Pima‐Maricopa Indian Community, is amplifying the excitement of its poker room with the installation of an arena‐sized scoreboard.
Similar to the scoreboards used in professional sports, the scoreboard display features 16 55-inch-high definition televisions allowing guests to keep an eye on all the latest sports action.
Already the largest poker room in Arizona, the addition of the scoreboard display completes the room’s transformation in its new incarnation as The ARENA Poker Room at Talking Stick. The scoreboard hangs high above the room's more than 50 poker tables, and also has a sports ticker and the capabilities to show live poker games from the room.
“The scoreboard adds a new level of excitement and the name change reflects that,” said Kent Odekirk, director of poker of Talking Stick Resort. “The sheer size of board effectively showcases the vast size of our room. Guests probably won't truly appreciate the magnitude of our arena until they see the scoreboard. After all, they typically see panels that size in sports arenas.”
