Under his leadership, Metropolitan Gaming recently sold its interest in Emerald Resort and Casino so that the company could focus on both maintaining its markets in the UK and Egypt, as well as on a rebranding of its Mayfair property.
The company sold those assets to a consortium that was controlled by Tsogo Sun.

During that time, he also worked for London Clubs International as its Managing Director.
Before joining Metropolitan Gaming, Silbering served as CEO of Affinity Gaming in Las Vegas and as Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment’s Chief Operating Officer.
Silbering hails from Palo Alto, California and currently resides in London.
Metropolitan, along with its parent company, currently owns and operates 11 casinos. Silberling aided the group in a strategic partnership with Galaxy Gaming that launched the first Inter Casino Link progressive system, Mega Link Jackpot. The release was implemented at 22 tables across seven UK casinos.
"Following the addition of the iconic Park Lane Club to Metropolitan Gaming's portfolio of casinos in the UK earlier this year, the sale of our interest in Emerald Resort and Casino reflects our focused strategy to invest in and develop the business within our primary markets” Michael Silberling
