Three times is the charm, they say.
The first 888poker “Make it Big” Festival in London was, well, big. The second one in Rozvadov was bigger.
The third will be another record-setter as 888poker will bring its biggest Live Festival ever to Barcelona this May.
It’s one of the top destinations for poker in Europe and it will feature even more tournaments than its predecessors.
The Whale, Hurricane & More
This time around 888poker is bringing the whole range of poker tournaments they have to offer online to the live stage.
The Whale goes live.
That means The Whale, The Hurricane, The Mega Knockout and many more.
The main event will have a €1,100 buy-in and €500,000 guaranteed -- but also watch out for the €2,200 High Roller event where all the celebrities will take part.
The whole team of 888poker ambassadors will be there to greet you.
Dominik Nitsche, Kara Scott, Sofia Lövgren, Chris Moorman and Natalie Hof will all spend some time in Catalonia, but make no mistake – they’ll make it hard for you to advance to the next stage of the tournament.
Online Satellites On Now
You can just buy-in or qualify live on location (see below), but as always you also have the chance to satellite into the festival via online qualifiers.
You can qualify both for the main event and the opening event. Direct satellites for the main are $30 to play while the satellites for the opening event are just $12.
If you want to play for less you can qualify for the direct satellites through the 888poker steps system starting at 1 cent.
