part from the UK, where Genting operates household casino names such as Crockfords, Mint, Circus or Maxims, just to name a few, the group operates casinos in Malaysia, Singapore, Australia and the Philippines.
With seven events throughout 2012, the Genting Poker Series will feature guaranteed prize pools of 800,000 sterling pounds ($1,25 million USD).
Kevin Proctor, Poker Operations Manager at Genting, welcomed Fournier as the official supplier of playing cards to the tournament.
“The relationship between Genting Casino Group and Fournier goes back in time as our casinos have been using Fournier playing cards for many years. Therefore we know well the attributes of Fournier cards. Fournier 100% Plastic Playing Cards are credited for making dealers and players agree in their top resistance, nice touch and smooth shuffling and slide.”
“Another feature that we particularly value in Fournier playing cards is their security as they have been consistently supplying cards with no marks or defects. With Fournier we know we have the best material in our tables and as you can imagine a tournament of this calibre could not settle for less,” Proctor added.
