GGPoker and Casino Malta have joined forces once again for another edition of the exciting Battle of Malta Online series. Battle of Malta Online begins on July 10 and runs through to July 31, with 18 featured events, dozens of side events, and combined guaranteed prize pools tipping the scales at an impressive €25 million.
The 18 featured events come with buy-ins ranging from €50 up to €1,050 and boast of guarantees from €100,000 all the way up to a wallet-filling €2,500,000. Anyone who takes down a Battle of Malta Online featured event not only scoops a bankroll-boosting cash prize but also receives a €555 seat for the live Battle of Malta Main Event. Seats for the live Main Event are exchangeable for tournament dollars if you cannot make it to the live festival.
Mid-stakes grinders should pay particular attention to Event #7, the Global MILLION$ European Cup, which has an affordable €50 buy-in but a guaranteed prize pool weighing in at €1 million.
The Battle of Malta Online Main Event is the tournament every GGPoker players wants to take down. Featuring a €555 buy-in and boasting of a cool €2.5 million guarantee on its prize pool, this event will be fiercely fought.
