Macau junket investor Meg-Star Group says it launched on June 21 a new VIP poker club at the casino inside the Macau Roosevelt Hotel in the city’s Taipa district.
Located within Macau Roosevelt Hotel, Poker Time Club is a collaboration between Meg-Star International and Switzerland’s Swiss Time Group and described as the only large Texas Hold’em Poker Club in the world to offer a top-level watch appreciation service.
Its features include five ring-shaped VIP rooms primarily designated for poker plus two baccarat tables, an open-air lounge and various leisure facilities. Stakes on the poker tables are said to range from HK$300/$600 to HK$5,000/HK$10,000.
The promoter said additionally that the new club is the first large Texas Hold’em poker club in the world offering what it termed a “top-level watch appreciation service”. Meg-Star said it has partnered with Switzerland’s watchmaker the Swiss Time Group to create the Poker Time Club.
Meg-Star’s chief executive Ben Leong and the group’s brand ambassador Cheung Chi Lam, as well as a director of Swiss Time Group, Michael Zhao, attended Friday’s opening ceremony.
The casino at the Macau Roosevelt Hotel operates under the licence of Macau casino operator SJM Holdings Ltd. The casino is officially called Casino Jockey Club, as it is technically a relocation of a now-closed gaming facility at the nearby horse-race track.
Another Macau junket investor, Tak Chun Group, has been running the VIP operations at the Macau Roosevelt casino since May last year. With the launch of the new VIP poker club, the casino at the property is solely focused on the VIP gaming segment.
