The Battle of Malta is the premier low-stakes high-value tournament in Europe.

Set to take place Sept. 26-29 at the Portomaso Casino in Malta, the event offers a €200k-guaranteed prizepool despite a buy-in that costs only €550.

Regardless of how players perform in the tournament, everyone will be treated to the sights and sounds of Malta, one of the marquee European vacation spots.

In addition 888poker is running a number of freerolls into the tournament. Every second week until Sept. 7, 888poker hosts a $33 qualifier for a $2,400 all-inclusive Battle of Malta package.

The buy-in is free, however, for players who just deposited on the site using the promo code: BOM888.
