APT and Geutebruck Sign Two-Year Partnership for APT Korea

We are pleased to announce the signing of a new two year agreement with Geutebruck Korea Inc., the company that operates the poker rooms at Paradise Casino Walkerhill in Seoul and Paradise City Incheon.

Confirmed Korea Events for 2018:

“We are thrilled to have APT back in Korea not only in Incheon next year but also at the Walkerhill Casino located in Seoul. APT Incheon was a huge success this year. Based on players’ feedback, we thought it would be great to offer another stop in Korea adding APT Seoul to the calendar so that the players can get more out of their experience in Korea. Seoul has so much to offer away from the tables and with stage 2 of Paradise City expected to launch next year which includes, retail, entertainment venues and a night club it’s going to be an exciting 2018,” stated Geutebruck Director Dom Choi.

Since 2013, the APT has been to Korean soil hosting events at the popular destinations of Jeju and Daegu. Last August, the APT added Incheon city to the list with a nine-day poker festival held at the newly erected Paradise City – the first Korean-style integrated resort in Northeast Asia. Given that by law only foreigners are allowed to enter the casinos, the event was a huge success pooling in over 1,200 entries and USD 550,000 in cash prizes.

While the APT looks forward to its next visit to Paradise City Incheon, it is equally thrilled to host its first event at Paradise Casino Walkerhill located in the bustling metropolis of Seoul, South Korea. Not only are the gaming facilities topnotch, the poker room itself is considered the country’s premier poker destination providing nothing less than world class service.

With this latest development, the APT has secured two more events towards their blossoming 2018 schedule. As it stands, next year is shaping up to be another big year for the brand.
