Customized Travel for Package Winners
One of the best new perks for 888poker online qualifiers for live events is a new partnership with MainEvent Travel. 888Live qualifiers can now fully customize their travel options to get maximum value from packages.
Importantly, players can pick the exact days of their stay, choose from a number of different hotels and maximize their budget options. Says MainEventTravel.com Managing Director Fraser MacIntyre:
“By putting complete control into the hands of the player we can ensure that they get the very best out of their visit.”
More than just a one-hit main event stop the 888Live stops have grown into full-on festivals in 2017 with plenty of side events and activities to keep players engaged and entertained. Poker pros like 888poker ambassador Dominik Nitsche have noticed:
“The thing I like most about the new 888 events,” Nitsche says, “is how they are a complete poker festival with high rollers and side events. Meaning that even if you bust out early from the main event, there is always something else to play!
“When thinking of an 888Live event, I can say the whole vibe around the event is something unique. It feels a lot friendlier, and you can tell that this is an event made for the players to enjoy and not to squeeze every last bit of rake out of them.”
Fellow 888 Team Pro Sofia Lovgren agrees:
“888Live events are bigger and better from one location to the other. The Barcelona Festival is great for both recreational and professional players, the mix of players creates a well diverse field which supports the game of poker.”
