A CASINO in Bournemouth has created a VIP poker room.

The room in the Genting Casino, on Yelverton Road, is being launched in partnership with House of Blinds, a new company offering cash poker games.

It brings the game back to the venue for the first time in 15 years and will offer a valet service for food and drink, along with new chairs and tables that allow customers to charge their phone while playing.

Bryan Patterson, general manager at Genting Casino Bournemouth, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to be able to bring poker back to the casino after a 15-year break and are delighted to be able to offer our valued customers a truly exceptional VIP experience.”

The VIP Poker Room will be hosted by House of Blinds and will run by George Koleonidis and Adam Ostrowski. It will open from 4pm on Saturdays and Sundays and from 6pm on weekdays.
