The European Poker Tour will be heading to Malta for its penultimate event this month, with an 84-tourney festival running October 18-29 at Portomaso Casino. Malta is a top destination for poker players with a wealth of fab hotels, restaurants, bars and clubs, just a stone’s throw from the festival venue. Just get in touch with MainEventTravel to sort out your accommodation needs - including staying at the Hilton Malta, the event’s official hotel. Some key events of the 12-day extravaganza to look out for include a €25,000 High Roller, the €1,100 Italian Poker Tour Main Event, the €5,300 EPT Main Event, a €150 buy-in charity event and live versions of PokerStars Spin & Go tourneys. Blackjack players are also in for a treat with the first ever tournament at EPT Malta.
