The firm behind one of the world’s leading online poker networks, Entraction Holding AB, has launched its European Masters of Poker tournament series in conjunction with some of Europe’s premier land-based casinos.
The five-event series will begin at the Olympic Casino in Tallinn, Estonia, from February 20 to 22 with later stops in Spain, Cyprus and the Czech Republic before finishing with the final at Malta’s Casino Di Venezia in September.
With a direct buy-in of €1,100 and an ultimate prize of up to €100,000 alongside the title of European Master of Poker, the series is targeted at non-professional players that may not have loads of cash to throw at a game of poker.
“Despite the large selection of poker tournaments in Europe, only few players are able to compete when the buy-in costs thousands of Euros,” read a statement from Solna-based Entraction.
“European Masters of Poker breaks the trend and targets the larger and more important segment of non-professional players who want to spend time with other poker players and compete for a first prize of up to €100,000.”
The Swedish firm revealed that online players could qualify daily for a seat at one of the five live events for as little as two Euro or 200 VIP points courtesy of its partner sites on the Entraction Poker Network including NoiQPoker.com, Redbet.com and I4Poker.com.
'European Masters of Poker is a great way for partners in the Entraction Poker Network to both attract new players and strengthen the relationship with their existing players,” said Daniel Eskola, Acting Product Manager for Entraction.
“The only way to guarantee a seat at the tournament is to play at a partner site in the Entraction Poker Network.”
