"We became Licensees for NPL in the early days of pub poker, when it was a matter of introducing the brand and budget friendly charges to the venues in our area. The best part about being an NPL Licensee is that we have the freedom to create games to suit our venues and players, as NPL gives you the flexibility that a franchise doesn’t. We have presented many ideas which have been taken on board, resulting in major events such as the NPL World Tour events in Asia, the NPL500 and the structure of the Quarterly Finals. NPL is still growing and bringing new and innovative new player incentives. We liaise directly with all our venues and have established years of trust by delivering a quality of service. It’s up to the Licensee to set the standard and if you consistently deliver your service at a high standard, it can be very rewarding. If you are motivated, have passion for the game – then NPL is the team you want to be part of."
