Massive Poker Fortnight In Malta: October/November 2018

Hi! I'm Kat!

Hi! I’m Kat!

BLOG POST BY REDBET POKER MANAGER – KAT ARNSBY

 

There’s A LOT going on for low-stakes poker players in Malta in the latter half of 2018, and I want to tell you about it nice and early so you have time to book the time off work for a monster poker holiday!

November in Malta, especially for a girl from the UK, is quite lovely; not so hot that you are constantly sweaty, but warm enough you can wear shorts and feel like you’re on holiday.
It’s an absolutely superb winter holiday destination for anyone at anytime, but in 2018, the winter holiday season in Malta is going to be all about poker players.

The island’s two biggest poker venues have got themselves embroiled in warfare, and are going head to head with two massive low-stakes festivals in adjacent weeks with over €1.5 milly of combined guarantees during that time!

Here are the details:

25th-30th October
Battle Of Malta
Casino Malta
€550 ME with €1m gtd

1st-6th November
Malta Poker Festival
Portomaso Casino
€550 ME with €500k gtd

Packages are as follows:

Battle Of Malta €1500 package includes:
€550 Main Event Entry
€150 Side Event Entry
5 night hotel accom at 4* Holiday Inn Express (26th-31st Oct breakfast included)
Players’ parties
Dinner whilst playing ME
€200 expenses

Malta Poker Festival €1650 package includes:
€550 Main Event Entry
5 nights hotel accom at 5* Hilton (1st Nov-6th Nov breakfast included)
Players’ parties
Dinner whilst playing ME
€250 expenses

 

If you win BOTH packages through redbet.com (at time of writing the only online poker operator offering both event packages) then we will do two things:

  • Cover the cost of the extra night accommodation in Malta of 31st October (this will be at the 5* Hilton)
  • EITHER upgrade your Battle Of Malta accommodation to 5* Intercontinental Hotel OR give you an extra €200 expenses to help you through the fortnight away from home – choice is yours, just let us know ASAP.

As a poker player, I know that when competing operators do battle, it is often the players that reap the spoils of war.
Malta is my home, and as a member of the local poker community, and I’m proud and thrilled to support both these competing events with enthusiasm._mg_8378

It’s going to be an EPIC fortnight in our little corner of the poker world, and I really hope this poker island can capture your imagination as completely as it has captured mine.
The weather, the people, the food, the vibe and the high quality poker venues make this my favourite place in Europe to play poker, and I have been all over the place!

The Malta Poker Festival package satellites have been available since May and the Battle Of Malta Package satellites are available from 2nd July.

I’m really hoping to meet you in Malta as part of team redbetLIVE so you can begin to understand why I love this place so much.

You can hit me up on Twitter as @redbet_kat or on FaceBook as Kat Redbet with any questions- if I don’t respond immediately, just assume I’m at the tables and I’ll get back to you as soon as I bust (ie not long)!

 

Please follow the following links for terms and conditions of each package- it’s all pretty standard stuff, but we like to be overtly transparent.
