In the Irish casino news it is sad to report that Silks Private Members Club which closed it’s doors last year is being out up for sale. One of the most famous private members clubs in Dublin was well known for blackjack and roulette but obviously could not get enough business in the face of competition from online casinos. The club opened some 12 years ago and according to the promotional material boasted trained croupiers and dealers to provide a friendly and professional environment. Irish casino news believes there are only around half a dozen clubs of this sort in Dublin so it will be sorely missed and despite doing their best to entice customers with free membership plus free drinks and food it is probably the online casino business which is readily available in Ireland that has at least partially caused the downfall. The building is now in the Irish casino news as being up for sale and could be a very interesting property due to its location and with four floors and a basement plus a bar and barbeque area could be converted into practically anything and it could even remain as a casino as reports on the Irish casino news suggest that the casino tables and equipment could be included in the sale. If there are any online casino players out there who fancy a crack at running a private members club now is your chance for a possibly reasonable €1 million. In other casino news not relating to Irish casinos it is reported that gambling revenues in January in Macau have fallen some 17% when compared to the same period last year but there could be a couple of reasons for that which does not include online casinos as they are illegal in China. Unrest in Hong Kong and a crackdown on money laundering by wealthy Chinese as reported in the Irish casino news previously are the probable reasons.
