Unibet Open Returns to Malta in September
This fall, the Unibet Open returns to Malta. The Unibet Open Malta took place for the first time in 2011 and it is one of the most popular low buy-in poker tournaments in Southern Europe. The event will take place from September 29 to October 2 at the Intercontinental Hotel in the heart of Malta's St. Julian's party scene. Unibet Poker turns 25 this year and the provider's live tournament series, the Unibet Open is entering its 15th season.
The last event of the Unibet Open in Malta took place in 2019. At that time, 327 entries generated a prize pool of 327,000 euros. In the two following years, the event paused due to the pandemic. But now the Unibet Open returns with a four-day festival at the end of September 2022. There are numerous ways to qualify for the tournament's Main Event. Satellites for the tournament began on April 18 and will run throughout the summer on Unibet.
Prize packages worth €2,000 include buy-in to the Main Event, four nights' accommodation at the five-star Intercontinental Hotel and an allowance for travel costs. The final big satellite will take place on Sunday, September 18 - 11 days before the tournament begins. Until the start of the tournament, it is also possible to buy a seat or package online.
