Live Poker Rooms In Hong Kong


The casino industry in Hong Kong is a pretty close knit one with the government looking into casino establishments and poker rooms with a microscope. As per Hong Kong laws, casinos are not illegal but only a handful operate.

The reason for the scarcity of casinos or big poker brands and poker rooms is that rake is illegal. This acts as a strong deterrent to those who wish to run poker rooms and big poker operators hosting tournament series and other events. But for those who still wish to play live poker in Hong Kong, we are presenting a list of casinos and poker rooms in this former British colony.

Hong Kong Game Club (HKGC) operates with a legal permit from the government which means no rake is collected by the organisers. This condition by the government has limited the scope of poker’s growth in Hong Kong, but the founder, Ricky Cheung, has been running this game club for over 15 years now.

The Hong Kong Game Club started its operathttps://gutshotmagazine.com/usop-da-nang-2023-me-the-naing-wins-the-title/ions in 2007 and the founder runs the one poker room under this brand called Match Poker Esports Arena. This poker room started running in August 2021. The poker room housed in HKGC is certified by Match Poker and has 10 tables one of which is the live stream table.

HKGC was the venue for Ace Poker League (APL) for its January 2023 edition (28th January – 6th February 2023) was quite popular in the Asian circuit and in Korea. In November 2022, Cheung hosted the All Japan Poker Circuit (AJPC) in Hong Kong which turned out to be a big hit especially when players did not wish to go to offshore poker rooms. AJPC Hong Kong also became the first ever event from Hong Kong to be listed on Hendon Mob.
