The Hippodrome Casino to host PokerStars sponsored live event in January

ONCHAN, Isle of Man – November 1, 2017 – The first PokerStars Festival of 2018 will take place in the heart of London’s West End at the Hippodrome Casino this coming January 22-28, 2018.

The global festival returns to the UK capital for the second time with seven days of blockbuster action sponsored by PokerStars, the flagship brand of The Stars Group Inc. (Nasdaq: TSG; TSX: TSGI).

PokerStars Festival London will feature a host of tournaments including the flagship £990 PokerStars Festival Main Event, where poker enthusiasts and professionals will vie for a slice of the total prize pool.


Registration for the PokerStars Festival London Main Event is now open with a wide range of satellites available. Players can qualify online now to win their way into the Main Event.

“Last year, 23-year-old law student Rehman Kassam from London played a live £120 PokerStars satellite and took home the Main Event first prize of £89,320, the largest win of his poker career,” said Team PokerStars Pro Liv Boeree. “Anyone can follow in Rehman’s footsteps and turn a small win into a big investment. That’s the beauty of the PokerStars Festival series. So take a look at the satellites running now.”
