PokerStars opens a live poker room at City of Dreams Manila

December 24, 2014

In the world of live tournament poker there are certain corners of the world that will be forever PokerStars, whether it’s the Hippodrome in London or PokerStars Live Macau. Now you can add the Philippines to that list, with the launching of a branded, live poker room at City of Dreams Manila.

The new integrated casino resort is poised to become a premier leisure and entertainment destination in the Philippines, which has a thriving poker community, much like its regional neighbour Macau.

Locals got a sneak preview of City of Dreams Manila earlier this month, with a soft launch on December 14. Now it’s officially open, offering cash games and tournaments on its 14 permanent tables.

“Our relationship with City of Dreams has been nothing short of amazing in our poker room in Macau. I have the utmost confidence that our continued collaboration in Manila will take poker in the Philippines to new heights,” said Danny McDonagh, PokerStars’ Director of Live Operations for Asia-Pacific.

So if you’re reading this in Manila, here’s how to find it. Head for level 2 of the casino floor at PokerStars Live Manila and find yourself a seat. And if you’re waiting for a special occasion, the Asia Pacific Poker Tour (APPT) Manila Poker Festival is just one festivity planned in the coming months.
