Tournaments are dealer-dealt. 10% of the prize pool is deducted for the cardroom. Their tournaments usually bring in around 30-40 runners.
The first monday of the month hosts the £1000 Genting Casino Big Game (previously the Palm Beach Big Game)
Online poker room Genting Poker allows you to cash-in and cash-out at any of Genting's casinos, including The Mint. Click on the banner below to sign up to Genting Poker!
On most nights, there are 3-4 cash games going on, all £1-2 NL Holdem. They also offer 50p-£1 cash games (min £25) when players request it, but that isn't particularly often. The action is extremely loose in their cash games. Rake is 5% up to £10.
Part of the Genting Group (who also manage the Palm Beach Casino) the newly-branded Mint cardroom, now associated with Bluff Europe, was launched in May with a fancy party and lots of poker celebrities. Unfortunately, since then it hasn’t really taken off yet. It has picked up slightly though and they get 30-40 runners on the more popular tournaments and there are usually 3-4 cash tables running, typically after people start busting out tournaments.
Being relatively small, the atmosphere is quite relaxed, and the management is flexible, able to change things up if players request something different.
There is a small core group of older players who have been playing at the Mint for years who you will see there regularly. You will also find a steady stream of casino fish trying their hand at poker. Generally, the action at the Mint is very loose, and the level of play not very high.
We were hoping being associated with Bluff Europe, we'd see more special promotions here. However, they have recently started a Bad Beat Jackpot in pretty much the same fashion as the Empire's. The first time the jackpot was in January 2011 - where over £28K was dished out.
Same as other casinos - just bring ID and you should be fine.
One of the loosest cash games in town. Average-low standards of play but, God, there's action.
new schedule...monday 20k chips 40 f/o £500 added...?
went to the wednesday night tournie...game was loose but fun. Cash was looser still! Card room management good and eager to please in what is an obvious side game to the main buisiness of the venue.Easy to get a taxi outside and a cute smoking terrace
I like the Mint and it looks much better now the card room has been re-done. Good 1/2 game every night.
I had a great time here last week. There was a £50 tourney on with about 35 runners, which I cashed in and a really good cash table afterwards which I sat at until half three in the morning. The dealer told me they would be doing 50-£1 cash games in there.
Went along for the Sunday evening game - and there wasn't enough runners. Very negative vibe about when and/or how they will re-establish, and no encouragement for me to return. The room manager didn't even know the correct date on their website regarding when the official re-opening was. He said 19th May, and The Mint website said 10th May. No plans to encourage me to come back as they seemed to have no coherent policy to draw back their old regulars - as many as 40 on a Wednesday before the closure. Or draw in new players. Really disappointing! Finally all the tourneys are pricier than they were. Fair enough but what about some cheaper games for those who are still finding their feet.
