Ho Tram opens poker room

Written by Ben Blaschke

With the inaugural APT Vietnam just around the corner, the recently renamed Ho Tram Resort Casino Vietnam has announced its new poker room will officially open tomorrow, Saturday 18 April.

In conjunction with poker operations partners World Gaming Group (WGG), the poker room will initially offer US$1/$2 and US$2/$5 cash games with others available upon request and will be in full swing by the time Vietnam’s first major poker festival, APT Vietnam, gets underway on 6 May. Poker is enjoying a huge surge in popularity in Vietnam but until now reputable, professionally run venues have been hard to come by.

“Following the signing of an agreement with WGG in January, it is extremely exciting to be able offer poker players in Vietnam a safe, secure and legal environment in which to play cash games,” said President of Ho Tram Resort Casino, Shaun McCamley. “We know that poker is exploding around Asia and in Vietnam in particular so we’re absolutely delighted to be bringing the game to the Ho Tram Strip.”

Ho Tram is set to quickly become one of Asia’s premier poker destinations with a commitment to build both its cash game and tournament offerings in the coming months, while away from the tables players can relax on the pristine 2km beach and Greg Norman-designed golf course – both located right on Ho Tram Resort Casino’s doorstep.
