Lock Up Your 2016 BOM Seat With 888poker, PartyPoker Satellites
Like a relentless fleet of warships heading for an extended siege, the 2016 Battle of Malta is coming.
This Nov. 2-7 the Portomaso Casino will once again be jam-packed with players looking to snag a chunk of the €500k-guaranteed prize pool and a piece of poker glory.
Of course the contest is renowned for its ultra low €550 buy-in but you can also qualify for the event on 888poker, PartyPoker and Betsson and potentially freeroll into the tournament.
Qualifiers Running Weekly
There are a number of ways to get into the 2016 Battle of Malta and 888poker actually runs feeder qualifiers every 30 minutes.
Here’s a complete look at the site’s steps program for BOM (each step awards a ticket to the next one):
888Live Step 1 – runs every 30 mins with 1c buyin
888Live Step 2 – runs every 60 mins with 10c buyin
888Live Step 3 – runs every 60 mins with $1 buyin

The weekly $160 runs every Thursday with at least one deluxe $1.8k BOM package being awarded every week October, 2016.
The $1.8k BOM package includes accommodations, travel expenses, BOM Main Event seat and access to BOM VIP party.
PartyPoker Points Race Heats Up
Meanwhile PartyPoker is running a BOM points race from June 1-Oct. 2, 2016.
The race will culminate with a final qualifier tournament on Oct. 9. Each 10 points a player accumulates will give them an extra chip in the tournament.
The tournament will only have a total of 4,000 chips so every point matters. The winner will walk away with an impressive BOM package that includes accommodation, seat in the BOM Main Event and more.
Finally if you play a lot on Betsson the Swedish-based site has a collection of BOM qualifiers that are running in conjunction with the 2016 Euro Cup.
If you navigate your way through each of the rounds you’ll get a seat in the Big Final on July 10 where the winner walks away with a all-include BOM package.
Fortunately there are plenty of consolidation prizes like headphones and PS4s for players who don’t make it all the way through.
