The AADC, hosted by Asia Gaming Brief and Reed Exhibitions with support from the American Gaming Association, is an annual event to honor and celebrate the front line of the gaming industry, as well as promote responsible gaming and corporate social responsibility.
In all, sixteen teams totaling over 60 Dealers from Macau and across Asia are participating in the championship which showcases dealers’ skills and talents in three games – Blackjack, Baccarat and Roulette.
The five local Macau properties are fielding two teams each, while regional properties are represented by teams from NagaWorld (Cambodia), Marina Bay Sands (Singapore), Resorts World Sentosa (Singapore), Solaire Resort & Casino (Philippines), City of Dreams Manila (Philippines) and Resorts World Manila (Philippines).
The aim is to celebrate the front line of the industry and award the Dealers and Teams that stand out the most. At the Awards Ceremony it will be announced who is the Best Dealer in each game and who is the Best Team in Macau and the Best Team in Asia (Macau included).
The opening ceremony was held at 14.00 on the G2E Asia show floor and was attended by the organizing committee, the participating teams and judges, the event sponsors – Wynn Macau, Sands China, Melco Crown Entertainment, Sociedade de Jogos de Macau, S.A. (SJM) and MGM China, TCS John Huxley, GPI and Angel, – supporting organizations and members of the media.
Josephine Lee, senior vice president of Reed Exhibitions China said: “This brand new addition to the G2E Asia show is an exciting event that will further serve to bring people together from across the region.”
Rosalind Wade, managing director of Asia Gaming Brief said: “We are delighted with the response so far from the industry. All of the properties are keen to showcase the talents of their dealers and many have been using this as an opportunity to hold their own internal competitions and training programs. It can only be good for everyone involved.”
