The inaugural Galway Festival is set to be the largest-ever poker festival held in Ireland and for someone it could be the most profitable ever, too.
Full Tilt Poker has already guaranteed that the UKIPT Galway Main Event will have a prize pool of €1,000,000 and now they are adding to the excitement and anticipation by throwing in plenty of extras. These include bounties on their players and a UKIPT sponsorship package that gives the lucky winner an all-access pass to the remaining UKIPT Main Events of Season 4.
Following on from UKIPT Galway, the popular tour heads to London, the Isle of Man, Nottingham in 2013 and then at least five further stops during 2014.
During the UKIPT Galway Main Event, players will receive bounties for eliminating Full Tilt Poker ambassadors, which implies Viktor Blom, Tom Dwan and Gus Hansen could be heading to the Emerald Isle to compete in the €1,100 UKIPT Galway main Event and other side events. In addition, the winners of Events 1, 8, 25, 30, 35, 42, 44, 45, 46, 48, 55, 59 and 60 will each receive a FTOPS XXII Main Event ticket worth $635 in addition to any cash prizes they win! More promotions are thought to be in the pipeline.
Sarne Lightman, the Head of Marketing for Full Tilt Poker, said in a statement, “The Last Longer Sponsorship prize package gives our qualifiers even more to play for – as if the €1,000,000 prize pool guarantee wasn’t enough! The winner will earn a seat at all of the remaining UKIPT Season 4 Main Events, including those that have yet to be announced, and get more opportunities to add to the prize money they win in Galway.
To be in with a chance of winning this superb package, players must qualify for the UKIPT Galway Main Event at Full Tilt Poker. Satellite winners will bank a package worth €2,200 that includes entry to the UKIPT Galway Main Event and five nights’ accommodation at the Radisson Blu Hotel and Spa with breakfast included and spending money.
