“Under the deal, Poker King Club will stage a minimum of three international poker tournaments at the Star Vegas, under a range of potential brands, including the Thailand legs of the Asian Poker Tour and World Poker Tour,” said a statement released Monday from Donaco International, the Australian-based owner of Star Vegas. Both companies will share revenues generated from the poker tournaments.
Marketing and planning for the events will also be done cooperatively.
Details about the three poker tournaments are still to be determined.
The Donaco partnership is with Kings Consulting, a division of an Asian casino junket group that currently operates three poker rooms under its Poker King Club brand.
Considered the premier Asian poker room management team, Poker King Club runs poker operations at the Venetian in Macau, the Solaire Resort and Casino in the Philippines, and the Maison Glad Jeju in South Korea.
Poker King Club prides itself as the premier brand on the Asian side of the poker world.
They originally operated inside the Star World Casino in Macau but moved to the Venetian in 2014.
