Where To Get Your Christmas Live Poker Fix

Where To Get Your Christmas Live Poker Fix 0001

Christmas might be a time for giving and for spending time with loved ones, but let's be honest, there are only so many turkey sandwiches and mice pies you can eat, only so many times you can split the kids up from fighting over a board game and you can only stomach so many Christmas-related films.

One way to escape the madness is to head to the casino and play some live poker if you can find somewhere that is open that is. Most venues are, rightly, closed on Christmas day, but we've found a trio of places that are open during those days between Christmas and New Year which most of us et to have off from work.

Head to the Rainbow Casino in Bristol between December 26 and December 28 and you'll be able to play for a share of at least £10,000 in the Rainbow Bristol Xmas 10K. The buy-in is £50+£5 and for that affordable sum you receive 25,000 chips, play to a 30-minute clock and get to battle for a £10,000 prize pool.

Those of you who are north of the border should head to the Genting Club Edinburgh for the £30,000 guaranteed Christmas Cracker. Taking place between Saturday 27 December and Monday 29 December and costing £185+£15 to enter, the Christmas Cracker is one of the most popular festive tournaments in the UK. Last year, 282 players turned out for it and wed expect a similar field this time around, despite an increased buy-in.

Last, but not least, is the ever-popular Dusk Till Dawn in Nottingham. The staff at DTD are having a well-deserved rest on December 24 and 25 before reopening on Boxing Day with two events.

The larger of these events is the £30,000 Guaranteed Big Game. December 26 sees Day 1c take place at 8:00 p.m. costing £100+£10 to enter. Here, players receive 50,000 tournament chips and play to a 30-minute clock.

Also taking place at 8:00 p.m. on December 26 is the £20+£5 XXL 20 Monster and its £5,000 guaranteed prize pool, which gives you the chance to pay for Little Johnny's new PlayStation 4 for the prize of a trip to McDonald's!
