Changes for 2016
What a year for Grosvenor Casinos’ Poker Events!
2015 Highlights include the hosting of our 9th consecutive year of the GUKPT which means the GUKPT retains the title of the longest running poker tour in the country. In 2015 alone the GUKPT covered 9 destinations, crowned 9 new champions and carried a staggering £1,600,000 in guaranteed cash prizes. Thank you to players, both old and new, for supporting the tour over the years and we look forward to celebrating our 10th anniversary tour with you in 2016!
The Grosvenor Casinos’ 25/25 has gone from strength to strength – the appealing structure, affordable buy-in, extensive satellite offerings both live and online and the fact it covers more ground in the U.K than any other tour has made the 25/25 the success that it is! Turn the page for the 2016 25/25 schedule and if you’re yet to take part, we recommend you do so!
The Goliath – what can we say, another year and yet another record! The 2015 Goliath was the biggest ever live poker event outside the U.S.A. A massive thank you to all 4,210 entrants for helping us hit that incredible achievement! Mikka Toikka took home the Goliath 2015 trophy and £70,800, all from an investment of just £120! Grosvenor Casinos pride themselves on being able to offer life changing prize money for a relatively small outlay and we look forward to offering the same opportunity to our players in August 2016.
Grosvenor Casinos is the biggest poker operator in the U.K and we strive to offer our players the best possible experience in all of our Casinos across the country. We aim to offer a consistent and premier customer service across all of our cardrooms which includes unconditional guarantees and as of 2016 even more dealer dealt tournaments and consistent tournament structures.
We endeavour to maintain these high standards and in order to do so we plan to make the following changes as of January 1st 2016;
- In 2016 we will strive to provide dealers for all of our events, but where this is not possible we will never charge more than £2
- All dealer dealt tournaments in all Grosvenor Casino will carry a £6 minimum registration fee
- All dealer dealt tournaments over £60 buy-in will carry a 10% registration fee (the only exceptions being the Goliath Main Event which carries a buy-in of £100+20, the GUKPT Grand Final and tournaments with a buyin below £150 running in our London based Grosvenor Casinos)
- We are introducing a more consistent tournament structure across all of our casinos
- All guarantees become unconditional once a minimum of 5 players are registered to a tournament
- Rake games are now raked down to the nearest £0.25
- The will be a 10% admin fee on all Jackpot games
