SkyCity Queenstown croupier Holly Darling made the top
eight finalists at the first Australasian Croupier Championship
held in New Zealand last week.
Ms Darling competed against 20 of the finest dealers from the
best casinos in New Zealand, Australia, Singapore and Vanuatu
at SkyCity Auckland. They tested their skills on the
blackjack and roulette tables last Monday and the grand final
was held last Tuesday.
Katherine Curmi, of Jupiter's Gold Coast, came first,
followed by Arjay Romero, of SkyCity Auckland, second, Paul
Taylor, of the Star Sydney, third, and Luke Abraham, of
Treasury Casino Brisbane, fourth.
The championship has been running for 12 years and recognises
the top performing croupiers from casinos around Australasia.
The judging panel scored competitors on customer service,
chip work and dealing skills.
