Poker rooms in Detroit have shut down after 3,700 casino workers walked off the job at three different properties in the Michigan city.

All three casinos will remain open during the strike, but poker rooms have temporarily closed at MotorCity Casino and MGM Grand Detroit.

An update to the website for MotorCity Casino indicated their poker room would be closed temporarily, while a sign informed visitors at MGM Grand Detroit that the area was closed. A phone representative at Hollywood Casino in Greektown said the casino was open, and the poker room operations were unaffected by the strike.
