Now famously known as "The Home of the World's Biggest Game", Poker King Club (PKC) was founded in 2009. PKC provides both cash game services and tournaments at different levels for all types of players. PKC currently has three poker rooms under its name: Poker King Club Macau, located at the gaming floor of The Venetian Macao, Poker King Club Manila at the Solaire Resort and Casino Manila, and Poker King Club Korea at Maison Glad Hotel Jeju.
PKC has worked with some of the most well-known tournament brands in the world, including Asian Poker Tour (APT), World Poker Tour (WPT), and, recently, Boyaa Poker Tour (BPT). As of 2017, the club has organized more than 40 tournaments in different branches around Asia.
PKC is also the organizer behind all Triton Poker events, which cater to the affluent super high roller market.
Under the deal, PKC will stage a minimum of three international poker tournaments at the Star Vegas, under a range of potential brands, including the Thailand legs of the Asian Poker Tour and World Poker Tour. The parties will conduct joint marketing campaigns for the tournaments, including marketing to PKC's network of players across Asia and globally. Revenues and costs for the tournaments will be shared.
The deal, which commences on 1 July 2017, represents the first step in Donaco's strategy of increasing the utilisation of available capacity at Star Vegas, and increasing visitation to the property from players located in Thailand and across Asia.
