UK – Grosvenor Casinos’ dealers face off at Dealer Championships

By - 21 November 2016

Grosvenor Casinos will hold its 10th annual Grand Final of the National Dealer Skills Championships on November 24 at Grosvenor Casino Coventry, where the best dealers across the UK go head to head to claim the title and prize in two categories: over two years’ experience and under two years’ experience.

Kicking off in June 2016, all of Grosvenor’s 53 clubs were invited to train and compete amongst their colleages, in preparation for the regional heats. Over 1,200 dealers entered the competition across the estate. From September to October, five regional heats took place in the North East, North West, Midlands, South and London. The top two performers from the regional rounds received a prize of £300 and a place at the Grand Final in Coventry.

The grand prize is £1,000 for Dealer of the Year with more than two years’ experience and £600 for the Dealer of the Year with less than two years’ experience. Both first place winners will win a fantastic trip to experience Grosvenor’s live casino in Malta. The second place with more than two years’ experience will receive £500 and £300 goes to second place with less than two years’ experience.
Dealers are judged on their Blackjack and Roulette dealing skills. For Blackjack, the dealer has to shuffle and deal for five hands and then complete a Blackjack pay-out test. For Roulette, the dealer must deal on roulette for four spins and then complete a bet calculation and cash conversion exercise. Dealers are scored against customer service, chip work & dexterity, asset & game protection, float management and communication.

Ian Shanahan, Table Gaming Product Development Manager at Grosvenor Casinos comments: “The National Dealer Skills Championships has become a highly-anticipated event across our casinos, for Support office, Managers and of course our dealers. We look forward to another successful Grand Final where our regional winners can show off what makes Grosvenor Casinos’ dealers the best in the UK.”
