Pokerpro machines in Genting "International" Room has now been shut down due to bad weekday business and they were unable to meet house expectations in rake $.
They also informed us that they will not be setting up a poker room due to the same reason.

They should setup the live poker room instead of the electronic ones. I prefer live games with real life dealer, cards and chips. When I was there in the IR i tried the table and it is really not fun at all. If they have the poker room, it'll be much better and def draw more crowd.

This is just your own opinion, but the fact and figures show other wise.

Casino is a commercial entity which looks into profit(s) only, Poker Room or tables needs to be filled in order to make money. Just zoom in to Macau, Lisboa Grand, Pokerstars room, they have all together 22 poker tables! Without an on-going tournament, it is always less than half filled even during peak hour, and during off peak, worst, only 2-4 tables occupied. How to make money?

In Genting IR, even sunday morning, i have to wait from 930am to around 1230pm, then they could gather 4-5 players to start off their 1st PokerPro table. They have made this decision as in IR space is limited, PokerPro machine have to give way back to the more profitable roulette / Baccarat tables.

Give Poker some time, we are still an infant as in Poker scene, let it build up its pool of players and hopefully Singapore IR shall have its 1st poker room soonest.
