Microgaming players take $400,000 in buy-ins

Prize money

It's good to be a poker player on the Microgaming Network: 34 players from 17 online poker rooms have recently earned $400,000 in buy-ins to the biggest land-based tournaments in the world, including the World Series of Poker (WSOP) and the European Poker Tour's (EPT) Monte Carlo Grand Final. And that was just last week.

A lot can happen for poker players over the course of seven days.

Particularly on the Microgaming Network - home to GNUF, bet365poker, 24h Poker and Purple Lounge Poker, among others.

In satellite play alone last week, 20 players scored $9,000 packages to the EPT's sold out Dortmund event this weekend, wrapping up today with a first place payout of €672,000.

On top of that, 10 packages for $16,600 were won to the EPT Monte Carlo Grand Final, expected to be the biggest event in Europe this year, and, in the first of dozens of satellites for the WSOP Main Event, four players played their way to $15,000 packages.

And while the dollar value of the packages is impressive in its own right, Microgaming claims it ups the bar when the winners indulge in their spoils.

"We believe it's not enough for a network to just offer buy-ins to the very best land-based tournaments in the world," says Roger Raatgever, CEO of Microgaming.

"All our operators' players are personally looked after by our dedicated Microgaming event team. Every one of their needs is catered to, from travel and accommodation through to on the ground support at the tournaments themselves."

Up next for Microgaming: Satellites to six more WSOP events, with a first prize of $50,000 worth of buy-ins for the player's choice of tournaments, including up to 60 days of five-star accommodation, two return flights to Vegas and $3,500 in spending money.
