    Default Report: Genting Casinos will close live UK poker rooms

    Genting Casinos has decided to discontinue its live poker operations in land-based U.K. casinos, according to a report by PokerNews.

    From the article dated 16 June:

    PokerNews was aware of rumours circulating regarding Genting not reopening its live poker operations before an employee reached out to us. The Genting employee, who wishes to remain anonymous, informed PokerNews they work in the Birmingham cardroom and have been told “Genting will cease all live poker in their casinos.”

    Our source claims the Genting Resorts World Casino in Birmingham is losing 98 employees with between 20 and 50 jobs lost at every Genting casino around the United Kingdom.

    A Cardroom Manager at one of Genting's casinos, posted an update on his Facebook page.

    Please note: It was not this manager who told PokerNews of the upcoming redundancies

    “Well, it’s been emotional. Thank you to all our poker players, hope you have a great experience. Thoughts to all my colleagues (family) that didn’t deserve this (although in current climate it was kind of expected) you are all superstars and proud to have had you in our team. Onwards and Upwards. PS anyone hiring?”

    PokerNews reached out to several Genting sources, including the President and Chief Operating Officer of their UK operations, but none had replied at the time of writing.
