PokerStars launches Megastack across Europe
PokerStars’ new and increasingly popular series Megastack is coming to a poker venue near players in Ireland, Belgium and France after a successful debut in the U.K., announced PokerStars, an Amaya Inc. brand. The new live tournament series, which launched in the U.K. in The Hippodrome Casino London in April and attracted over 520 entries, will now become a live poker staple in some of Europe’s favorite destinations, with over €500,000 guaranteed across all events combined.
PokerStars Megastack events are largely aimed at recreational players, offering a space for players to get comfortable at the tables and hone their skills without breaking the bank. The series is designed to bring live poker to players’ doorsteps at a low buy-in level, to create an exceptional live poker experience and to offer players a platform to build a poker career aimed at competing in PokerStars Championship and PokerStars Festival events. These new additions to the series further demonstrate PokerStars’ commitment to growing the game locally and investing in local poker communities.
“PokerStars Megastack is the perfect opportunity for you and your mates to get together to play poker, whether that’s for pure fun or as a stepping stone in your poker career,” said Team PokerStars Pro Jake Cody. “Players can expect an awesome poker experience and it will definitely be unforgettable for most players.”
