Singapore opens its doors to poker


Exciting news for poker in Asia today with the announcement that Singapore’s first ever legal poker room has opened its doors and rumours surfacing that the strict table caps for casinos in Macau may be relaxed for poker.

With a huge gambling culture and massive turnover of revenue in its casinos, we have long awaited the day where Singapore would open its doors and embrace the game of poker. Finally that day has arrived with theResorts World Sentosa announcing the official opening of its poker room. “Poker World” opened its doors and will be operating 24/7 as the country’s first “legal” poker room.

With games spread from SG$5/10 up to as high as SG$500/1,000, Singaporean Team PokerStars Pro Bryan Huang was among the first to test out the action as he posted on Facebook:

“Paid $2000sgd for annual levy. 7 tables available smallest 5/10sgd. 5% rake capped at $50 regardless of stakes. Currently 4 full tbl running.”

The levy that Huang speaks off applies to all locals who want to gamble in the Singapore casinos. They are required to pay SG$100 entry every visit or SG$2,000 for an unlimited annual pass. Those are big bucks we know, but thankfully they don't apply to foreign visitors who are permitted to enter for free.

The "Poker World" room has a total of seven tables in operation but there are no plans for tournaments at this time, as we believe government regulations prevent an administration fee to be charged. Until this is changed then it’s unlikely we’ll see the APPT or another tour head there in the near future.

However this is an exciting start for what has the potential to become a boom location for poker in Asia.
