Play Poker Alongside 2016 Euro Cup, Win a Battle of Malta Package
Tomorrow marks the start of the 2016 UEFA Euro Cup and if soccer and poker are your two favorite things, you're in for a very enjoyable month at Betsson.
Twenty-four of Europe's best national teams will play down from the the round-robin stage to the finals from June 10- July 10.
While your favorite side might not make it all the way to the end, you can make your way through your own poker stages independently on Betsson to end up with an all-inclusive package to the 2016 Battle of Malta.
Set to run Nov 2-7 this year at the Hilton Hotel and Portomaso Casino in St Julian's, up to 2,000 players are expected for the BOM Main Event and combined prize pools for all events is expected to top €1,000,000.

Prizes on the Stage 1 level are Ted Baker Headphones, Sony headphones and €3.30/€11 tournament tickets.

During the Final 4 there will be two last tourneys with the top 5 players in each qualifying for the Stage 4 Final on July 8 at 20:30 CET. Bose SoundDock and Bluetooth speakers go along.
