London's new casino, the Hippodrome, has signed deals with online poker room, PokerStars and the Isle of Man based online casino software provider, Microgaming.

In terms of this new deal with PokerStars and Microgaming, the Hippodrome Casino will obtain an online presence and the new casino's live poker room offering will be greatly enhanced.

The deal will also see PokerStars making a small investment in the new casino and refurbishing and rebranding the poker deck of Hippodrome Casino's live poker room in an endeavor to create the United Kingdom's first PokerStars poker room.  In 2013 players in the UK will have an opportunity to enjoy a wide range of poker tournaments sponsored by PokerStars, the largest online poker group in the world.

These tournaments and other special events will be promoted by PokerStars to its over 50 million registered customers in order to bring their attention to the exciting poker action at London's new Hippodrome Casino.

Guy Templar, Group Strategy Director for PokerStars, said that they were looking forward to unveiling some fantastic new live events for the UK poker market in 2013.  Templar added that the Hippodrome has raised the quality bar for the UK casino industry tremendously.

Microgaming has announced that it will construct the hippodromecasino.com website, which will be operated by Betway Group, and will be introducing a huge range of exciting games and mobile applications while PokerStars will provide the online poker at the site.

Simon Thomas, the founder of the Hippodrome Casino, said that they are thrilled to welcome PokerStars and Microgaming into the Hippodrome Casino.
