The Fox Poker Club has been sold to Genting Casinos.
The club â€“ Londonâ€™s only dedicated poker venue â€“ was founded by Chris North and Ian Hogg in 2005 and opened in September 2010, having received a full UK Casino licence in 2008. The former PKR-sponsored venue now boasts over 20,000 members and is currently experiencing record week-on-week trading.
Managing director North said: â€śIt was always a dream of mine to open a poker club in London and although itâ€™s been a real challenge, with delayed openings and not getting our 24 hour licence until July this year, Iâ€™m extremely proud of what weâ€™ve achieved. The club is in a great position to continue growing and we are very pleased that it is passing to such good hands. We wish the club and Genting all the success in the future.â€ť
Chairman Hogg added: â€śWe always knew there was a market for a poker club in the heart of London and itâ€™s been a wonderful project to have been involved in. Iâ€™m immensely satisfied to see the Fox Poker Club develop into one of Londonâ€™s best venues and Iâ€™ll be back to play games on a regular basis.â€ť
