Win a €1,650 Battle of Malta Trip for €2 at Betsafe, NordicBet & Betsson
The 2016 Battle of Malta is set to once again break all records for live poker tournaments held on the island of Malta.
Biggest field, biggest prize pool, most VIP parties for a €550 buy-in tournament ... each record has been broken every year of the BOM's existence and nothing will change for 2016.
An expanded side event lineup, more parties and an expected €1 million prize pool are all on the table for this year and you could be a part of it c/o a VIP package.
Premium sponsors Betsson, Betsafe and Nordic Bet have begun summer qualifying events with spectacular, all-inclusive packages up for grabs.
Daily Flips, Daily & Weekly Finals
2016 Battle of Malta qualifiers are basically running non-stop until the end of the summer on all threes sites with a few options for participating.
For the gamblers at heart you can get right into it with daily €2 flips on any or all of the sites. Players are all in every hand with winners earning a €20 ticket for one of three daily finals.
Win one of the Daily Finals and that will earn you a seat in the Weekly €200 final (played Sunday) with at least one €1,650 Battle of Malta package guaranteed.
If you'd rather play it up than gamble it up you can also play a daily €2 BOM Level 1 satellite that will also award the winner a €20 Daily Final ticket.
You can, of course, also buy-in directly to either the €20 Daily or €200 Weekly finals. And if all else fails you can also try the €20 Weekly Last Chance Flip event for a seat in the Weekly Final.

VIP Parties to Snapchat Home About
If you've yet to attend the Battle of Malta, rest assured if low buy-in destination poker tournaments are on your radar, this won't disappoint.
The vibe is super fun and casual but with our in-house coverage team, host Maria Ho and a small group of poker pros in the mix it has the feel of a major tour event - just without the huge price tag.
Four VIP parties, plenty of swag and lots of chances to get paid in side events it's the perfect event for a group of poker hobbyists to really get their money's worth.
For reference, last year's Main Event drew 1,804 entries, an €875,000 prize pool and a €165,000 first-place prize. The top 3 players chopped the event and all took home over €100k!
If you're lucky enough to scoop at package at one of the sponsors above, here's what your package will include:
- €500+€50 buy-in to the €500,000 GTD Main Event
- 5 nights’ accommodation at the 5-star Hilton Hotel
