Genting has successfully held the UK's first national Roulette competition

Casino operator Genting has capitalised on the growing popularity for the game of Roulette in the UK by organising and hosting a national tournament across its venues.

This month saw the final involve 75 Genting players from all over the country coming to Genting International Casino at Resorts World Birmingham to compete for a £25,000 top prize.

Jimmy Howard, Head of Casino Marketing, Home Markets at Genting told “This is the UK’s first national Roulette tournament and kicked off in April 2016, with contests held in Genting casinos across the entire length and breadth of the UK, from Edinburgh to Torquay and from Margate to Blackpool. A minimum of one competitor in every Genting Casino won seats at the national final, with 75 people taking part in the hotly contested event at Genting International Casino.”

Howard was very pleased at the outcome, which saw Mark Vaccarezza from Coleshill, North Warwickshire, crowned Champion of Champions and picking up the £25,000 jackpot. He added: “This event has been extremely popular with a high level of entries resulting in 75 competitors for the final event.”

Dave Scott, General Manager of the Genting International Casino commented: “There was a great atmosphere for this exciting final as players from all over the UK took part. We’d like to thank everyone who supported the competition and congratulate our champion Mark on his success.

“Roulette is growing in popularity. This was our first UK wide Roulette competition and with the enthusiasm shown I’m sure we will run it again.” Says: “While many in the casino sector rue the existence of Fixed Odds Betting Terminals in the UK’s betting shops, there’s no hiding from the fact that it has made Roulette more accessible and more popular with the gaming public. Genting’s first Roulette tournament appears to have tapped into this popularity to such an extent that it will not be the last the firm holds.”
