UK Dealer Championship

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.

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.

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, and 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 and this will be a valuable addition to the MegaKings brand and our growing network of sports betting portal websites.
