CAI Wins Again at the European Dealer Championship

For immediate release
Vienna/Belgrade – May 2014

The overall champion at this year’s European Dealer Championship (EDC) once again hails from a CAI operation. Lars Mikkelsen from Casino Copenhagen gave a performance worthy of a true champion as he emerged victorious against strong competition at a superb event hosted by Grand Casino Beograd in Serbia.

The Dane, who has worked for Casino Copenhagen for 15 years, demonstrated his skills and excellence in the games of Roulette and Blackjack as well as in five special tests at the eighth edition of the EDC. In doing so, he beat some of the best croupiers from across Europe. His extensive experience, dexterity and nerves of steel ultimately all contributed to his victory. Winning the European Dealer Championship is a dream come true for Mikkelsen, who sees it as a great honor to be able to call himself the reigning European Champion for the next year!
