Paris/Bally's Resort located in the heart of the Las Vegas strip combines one of the original super properties with a contemporary romantic Paris-themed casino. Bally's was the first Las Vegas casino project to go over a hundred million dollars, coming in for around one hundred ten million. Everything about the original property was done on a grand scale to compete with Caesar's Palace, the long-standing benchmark of Las Vegas luxury. The casino showcased beautifully painted vaulted ceilings in the huge casino. Even the coffee shop was above standard with white table cloths and real silver. Another Las Vegas first could be found on the lower level of Bally's, the first ever enclosed shopping mall in a Las Vegas Strip resort.
The Paris side of the conjoined hotel twins became a Las Vegas landmark before it was completed in 1999. The replica Eiffel Tower rises above the Las Vegas Strip to a height of fifty stories. From the observation deck at the top you can see a huge Egyptian Pyramid, Dancing fountains in Italy, a Roman Palace, a tropical island with an erupting volcano, a sailing ship and crew of playmates sinking into the sea and even a mountain range that Wynn built. Inside the Paris the resort is a Las Vegas version of the other Paris that includes not only the tower but an Arc de Triomphe and Louve. The hotel has 2,916 guest rooms offering the visitor the latest in luxurious accommodations.
Bally's has 2,814 oversize guest rooms and suites. The casino occupies 70,000 square feet and is filled with more than a hundred table games that's sure to include all of your favorites. The casino is also home to 2,100 of the latest slot machines. The Paris/Bally's Resort is located within an easy stroll to all of the major strip resorts.

The poker room located in Bally's has been in operation since opening August 1, 2004. Poker operations at Bally's and the Paris are the responsibility of Chris Eggers, Director of Specialty Gaming. The 10 table room is located in the central area of the casino close to hotel registration and the passageway to the Paris. The room is spacious, the tables are large, the lighting is subdued to a focus on the table surface and the seating was chosen with the player's comfort in mind. A sit-down bar is conveniently located adjacent to the room providing players easy access to rest and relax away from the poker table. Drink service to the tables is constant and quick with the bar just a couple of steps away. Big screen TV's are located around the room so you don't miss any of the sports action.
