Adam Udall from Birmingham has been recognised as the UK’s best dealer after winning Genting Casinos’ Dealer of the Year Competition.
The national event recognises the most talented and skilled dealers across the company’s 37 provincial casinos.
Adam, aged 27, who has been a dealer for nine years at Genting Casino Chinatown beat off stiff competition from eight other dealers at the finals at Genting Club Manchester on Friday 21 November 2014 to claim the title, £500 and a cruise for two.
Commenting on his win Adam said: “I’m overwhelmed to be voted the best dealer. It’s a fantastic job; you get to entertain your customers and use your creative flair to deliver a great experience every day. The competition was really tough and there were some very experienced finalists so I’m pleased that all my hard work and practice paid off.”
Adam was closely followed by Boglarka Bratkovics (known as BB) from Genting Casino Nottingham in second place and Nicolaa Goldray from Genting Casino Brighton in third place. BB received a trophy and £1,000 and Nicolaa received a trophy and £500.
The Dealer of the Year competition is designed to find the most talented dealers across the country with over 60 entrants progressing into the regional heats. Only nine contestants went through to the national final which judged their style, accuracy and procedures in dealing American Roulette and Blackjack, together with various exercises all against the clock.
