Europe-based leading poker brand 888 and the world-famous poker tour WPTDeepStacks (WPTDS) have announced a partnership which has resulted in two more events added to the WPTDeepStacks Europe schedule. These two stops will be Malta and Portugal.

As part of the deal, WPTDS and 888’s partnership will last for 3 years, during which time 888 will act as a co-sponsor for these events. 888 will also host online qualifiers and satellites for both these stops on their platform, and players can earn seats to the series by winning this.

The first stop as part of this partnership will be the island-country of Malta. The WPTDeepStacks Malta will take place at Casino Malta from 8-14 April 2019. The Main Event of this series will be held from 11th through the end of the series and will have €200k as tournament guarantee for a €1k buy-in. Satellites will also be held on 888’s website for this.

The next stop after the Malta will be the WPTDeepStacks Portugal to be hosted between 2-8 September 2019. The series will see itself hosted in the famous Casino Solverde Vilamoura situated in the southern coastal strip of the country. The €1.2k Main Event will have a guarantee of €250k and is something that will attract a lot of pros from the region. The Main Event will begin at 5th September till the series’ end.

About the partnership, Guy Cohen, 888 Holdings’ Senior VP of B2C commented, “We are very excited to extend our relationship with the World Poker Tour by sponsoring an additional two events in Malta and Portugal. At 888poker, we strive to create a product that offers an engaging experience to all poker players, and we are looking forward to launching our poker product in Portugal soon.
