The Genting International Casino in Birmingham hosted the final of the UK dealer championship last weekend. There were 26 finalists from various land based casinos in the running to take the £2000 first prize, under sponsorhip from game developer and manufacturer Novomatic.
The croupier is key for a land based casino in using their skill and charm to keep players interested and focused on the next big win. There are various skills needed and all these were tested in a series of contests to determine the best and most efficient. Skills such as stack pushing, chipping, card handling, chip cutting and mathematical arithmetic are all part of the top croupiers skillset.
The top 3 were announced and it was a very close fought battle. The eventual winner was the first female to be crowned champion. Catalina Huzum, representing Les Ambassadeurs Club used her charm, professionalism and skill to beat runner up Chris Hall of Crockfords Casino London and 2nd runner up Damon Ryan of Hippodrome Casino. Who won £1000 and £500 respectively.
Catalina Huzum, and runner up Chris Hall, will now go on to represent the UK at the European Dealer Championship later this year in Tallinn.
We are continuing with the update and revamp of several new websites. Our Sports Betting portfolio is growing as is the branding of MegaKings. We will soon be launching a full magazine advertising campaign in the UK for the MegaKings brand covering Casino, Poker, Bingo and Sports Betting. This brand aims to provide players with access to exclusive and improved welcome bonus offers, and this will be the focus of the advertising campaign. If you want your product to be included on our MegaKings network we will be happy to cater to your needs but will require an exclusive or improved welcome bonus offer, or something extra we can offer such as tournaments or prize draws.
Also, expansion into the Spanish market is on the cards. We have a number of sites that represent Spanish licenced operators. We have sports betting, which is the biggest growing market in Spain and also online casino and slots. Our new site Apuestas En Linea is a sports betting portal that handles our advertising relationships with brands such as Sportium, PAF, Marca Apuestas and William Hill Spain.
We are also soon to start offering Binary and Trading options alongside our current portfolio. This will be coming hopefully early next year. We do have several partners in mind whom we have already spoken to so we should be in touch very soon.
More news coming your way soon.

One of our major casino portal sites is MegaKings.com. This used to be a genuine online casino and receives good quality traffic. The site was altered about a year ago and has now become a popular online casino portal showcasing some great casino offers and games. In addition to this domain we also operate three other MegaKings domains. These are www.megakingscasino.com, www.megakingspoker.com and megakingsbingo.com. For many years these have been kept completely separate as we have gradually been increasing traffic.
We are now in the process of bringing these 3 domains and websites together and standardising the format and layout across all three. This will help with the MegaKings name branding and allow inter domain traffic building. The casino site is almost complete and the bingo site is expected next week with the poker site to be completed shortly afterwards. We have also taken control of the domain www.megakingssports.com and this will be a valuable addition to the MegaKings brand and our growing network of sports betting portal websites.
