We Want Poker in Singapore's Casinos!

Postby josemagaritta » Thu Aug 12, 2010 2:15 pm

Singapore is now the proud home to swanky new casinos - with NO POKER!! It is a tragedy. :( There were plans for a poker room but the casinos pulled it - presumable because they think they won't make any/enough money from Poker. There's a facebook group pushing for them to at least have a poker table. Join the group - if enough people want it the casinos will listen!

Yes, it is absurd. We should be able to play poker LEGALLY. The casinos had the chance to cater to a new market but they totally wasted this opportunity.

To the Casinos, Poker couldnt generate enough revenues.. what ever space they got, they will set up more table games..

It's not the money; as much as it is about the staff. They don't have enough people trained yet to really add in a completely new game.

I haven't been there for a few months; but then even on a Saturday night there were tables empty. With crowds around all of the operating tables. If the casinos could open the tables for blackjack, baccarat, whatever - they would have. But they just don't have the people to do it.

They won't be getting around to training poker dealers (and supervisors etc) until they know they can have as many blackjack and roullette dealers as they need. I predict at least another year, sadly.
