We're going to go into a bit more detail about the upcoming poker events this time so that each of you knows exactly when to book your trip.

Polish Poker Days: March 3-13 (Guaranteed €350.000)
For the fifth time in the history of Banco Casino in Bratislava, a horde of Polish poker players show up for a real Polish Poker Series. In addition, the brothers of the casino in Bratislava, the one in Kosice, also organized two such events. The last event, back in November 2022, saw a record breaking 3,630 player registrations.
In 2023, Banco Casino partnered up once again with 'LegalnyPoker.pl', for an amazing week full of poker. What to think of the €120 Main Event with €200,000 Guaranteed, or a €20,000 Guaranteed Mystery Bounty tournament, or the High-Roller with a guaranteed prize pool of €25,000, in one word: 'Awesome'.
Additionally, the first annual Polish Roulette & Blackjack Championship will take place. If that’s not all, there will also be a special ‘Polish show’ planned, with famous guests all over Poland.
