City of Dreams Mediterranean, Cyprus’ first integrated resort (IR) and one of the largest in Europe and the wider region, announced on May 30, 2022 that it will be bringing to Cyprus the prestigious European Dealer Championship next year. As Europe’s longest-running competition of its kind, participants from across the continent will display their skills in the ‘art of dealing’ at City of Dreams Mediterranean in June 2023.
Organised by the European Casino Association (ECA), the 15th edition of the championship will be hosted the City of Dreams, overlooking the crystal-clear waters of the Mediterranean Sea. Attendees will have the opportunity to see croupiers display their talents in the most popular games of American Roulette and Blackjack, as well as those who have mastered chipping, card handling, cutting chips, pushing stacks, and mathematics.
Grant Johnson Property General Manager City of Dreams Mediterranean and Cyprus Casinos (C2), said, “We are excited to be hosting the 15th edition of the European Dealer Championship in Cyprus next year, an event that attracts the continent’s best croupiers. We hope that next year’s event to be hosted at City of Dreams Mediterranean will surpass this year’s record attendance, at the same time showcasing Europe’s biggest integrated resort, and the beauty of Cyprus.
Since its inaugural event in 2007, the Dealer Championship has visited 13 countries and welcomed over 400 contestants and 2,000 spectators from across Europe and beyond.
This year’s event, which was hosted at the Casino de Monte-Carlo in Monaco in mid-May, saw a record number of participants including Melco Cyprus – operator of City of Dreams Mediterranean and Cyprus Casinos (C2), jury members and hundreds of spectators. After a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic, this year’s event in Monaco hosted participants from 23 European countries.
