PokerStars launches Megastack across Europe

20 April 2017

(PRESS RELEASE) -- PokerStars' new and increasingly popular series Megastack is coming to a poker venue near players in Ireland, Belgium and France after a successful debut in the U.K., announced PokerStars, an Amaya Inc. brand. The new live tournament series, which launched in the U.K. in The Hippodrome Casino London in April and attracted over 520 entries, will now become a live poker staple in some of Europe's favorite destinations, with over €500,000 guaranteed across all events combined.

PokerStars Megastack events are largely aimed at recreational players, offering a space for players to get comfortable at the tables and hone their skills without breaking the bank. The series is designed to bring live poker to players' doorsteps at a low buy-in level, to create an exceptional live poker experience and to offer players a platform to build a poker career aimed at competing in PokerStars Championship and PokerStars Festival events. These new additions to the series further demonstrate PokerStars' commitment to growing the game locally and investing in local poker communities.

"PokerStars Megastack is the perfect opportunity for you and your mates to get together to play poker, whether that's for pure fun or as a stepping stone in your poker career," said Team PokerStars Pro Jake Cody. "Players can expect an awesome poker experience and it will definitely be unforgettable for most players."

Bang for buck
The new PokerStars Megastack schedule will include increased guarantees, cheap buy-ins and tournaments with deep stacks. Each Megastack event comes with a massive starting stack guaranteed. Players can enjoy a great poker experience at an affordable buy-in to see if they can turn a Megastack into a mega prize.

Cheap thrills — from online to live
The expansion of the new series ensures players of all levels can experience all the thrills and excitement of a PokerStars-sponsored live event in their own backyard. Players can qualify online at home through dozens of satellites from as little as €1.10 and then play live from Friday to Sunday, filling a whole weekend with top-notch poker action. Each event is designed to suit a variety of work/life balances and keep players entertained over three action-packed days.
