Dusk Till Dawn and Portomaso Casino Malta to host The Festival Series in 2023
With the virtual ink barely dry after the latest edition of The Festival Bratislava, this fantastic, player-friendly and innovative series continues to progress at an impressive pace, with the next two tour stops already announced and qualifiers up and running!
Play from dusk till dawn at Dusk Till Dawn
After the initial opener in Bratislava in 2021, a successful summer stop in Tallinn and a triumphant return to Bratislava in October that saw the Main Event dramatically upping the guarantee to a whopping €500,000, The Festival will next be going to the UK, being hosted by the famous Dusk Till Dawn Poker Club in Nottingham, February 13-19.
Founded in 2007 and owned by the well-known poker player Rob Yong, Dusk Till Dawn has built its success as the biggest poker club in the UK by focusing on ground roots, low stakes players. A perfect venue, then, for The Festival Series, whose €550 Main Event is fast becoming a European player favourite. The Festival Bratislava, in fact, had 1,271 entries and a €603,725 prize pool that well surpassed the €500,000 guarantee.
The week-long event in Nottingham will see the usual unique blend of poker, competitions revolving around casino games (how’s your roulette strategy?) and sports betting and, importantly, away-from-the-table activities and parties throughout The Festival. Note that Dusk Till Dawn is a key poker partner of Luxon Pay which, conveniently for poker fans, affords players the facility to buy into poker events via the Luxon Pay app (at Dusk Till Dawn you can even use Luxon Pay to buy into cash games).
Poker in the Mediterranean: The Festival Malta
It’s a testament to the steamroller success of The Festival that the second leg of the Series in 2023 has been announced, namely The Festival Malta (May 15-21).
Another week of action-packed fun will see The Festival make its debut in the Mediterranean, hosted by the Portomaso Casino in St. Julian’s, Malta. This is not only a luxurious casino in a great setting, but one of the world’s leading poker venues with many major events under its belt to date.
So, there you have it! Keep your eyes peeled for The Festival Series qualifiers and get ready for a poker festival with a difference...
