Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the European Casino Association has taken the decision to postpone the European Dealer Championship until Q4 2020.
“Due to the current outbreak of COVID-19, the ECA has decided to postpone the European Dealer Championship to 16-19 November 2020,” the association said in a statement. “The health and safety of all participants is of uttermost importance to us. We look forward to seeing you in Monaco in November for a great championship.”
The event sees dealers rated on their technical skills, control of the game and their hospitality on Roulette and Blackjack.
“The European Dealer Championship celebrates their achievements, skills and demonstrates the importance of people for our business. It also shows the great diversity in our industry, with competitors coming from across Europe and even the globe to work in our sector,” said ECA chairman Per Jaldung speaking after last year’s event which saw the first-ever Swiss winner of the competition, Tamas Adam of Swiss Casinos Pfäffikon.
