Win seats to the EPT Barcelona and Malta Poker Festivals!

Latest News

Congratulations to our EPT Barcelona and EPT Malta Poker Festival prize winners! See here for the full list of winners.

Season 12 of the European Poker Tour (EPT) starts this August, and Live Casino players can win seats to the poker festivals in Barcelona and Malta, just by playing on our Casino Hold’em table. We’ve even re-named the table ‘EPT Barcelona Hold’em’ as part of the celebrations, and have also given it an EPT makeover.

Simply opt-in, sit down to play at the table and you’ll be entered into a prize draw to win a seat to the next EPT festival, plus other great offers.

Plus, we’ll also be streaming the action from the EPT Barcelona Main Event live on the table, meaning you can keep up-to-date with the drama as you play. The live dealer will even commentate on what’s happening, and we’ll be inviting special guests to act as co-hosts at the table (see below for the webcast schedule).
