Security Measures

PokerStars are working with both the Marriott Hotel and Casino Sochi to ensure that we fulfil our duty of care – to both our players and our staff to help them feel comfortable when they attend and as safe an environment as possible is provided.

Below are a number of measures we are working on with the hotel and casino to have put in place, but it is important to note that these are not intended to replace any state, local, territorial and safety laws, rules and regulations with which large gatherings must fully comply with:

  • Personal Protection Equipment PPE’s (masks, gloves, hand sanitisers) will be made available throughout the gaming floors, at tables, and ingress and egress points for guests and staff to use at any time.
  • All staff working at the event are required to sanitize their hands before their shift and throughout the day.
  • All tables, table equipment, poker equipment will be sanitized regularly.
  • All furniture and temporary structures will be cleaned on a scheduled basis.
  • Temperature checks for all players and staff on a daily basis and where a concern is raised.
  • Physical distancing in the premises: we will increase the number of staff working queue management. Signage will also be placed throughout the gaming areas to offer guidance and instructions in a clear, concise manner. Printed signs and digital screens will be used for this purpose.
