PokerStars announces partnership with Genting Casinos UK
16 May 2017
Genting Casinos U.K.'s Poker Operations Manager, Kevin Proctor, said, "We already enjoy a strong working relationship with PokerStars and look forward to taking this to the next level to optimize the robust nature of its software for the benefit of our customers. The link with PokerStars will allow more people to take part in the GPS, through the provision of a clear online qualification route."
Working in conjunction with PokerStars, Genting plans to build on the momentum of its successful GPS with the launch of four PokerStars MEGASTACK events. With a £170 entry fee and a guaranteed prize pool of £25,000 each, the PokerStars MEGASTACK events will complement Genting's existing Mini and Main events, with £35,000 and £100,000 guarantees, respectively.
"We already have a successful poker tournament, but we're keen to make sure that we keep things fresh and offer a variety of routes to play. The addition of the PokerStars online qualification route and MEGASTACK events will make sure that our players are constantly delighted with what Genting can offer," added Proctor.
Team PokerStars Pro Jake Cody, one of the U.K.'s most successful poker players and popular YouTube vlogger plans to attend many of these events.
"I'm so excited that PokerStars has given players the opportunity to qualify online for the Genting Poker Series, it's going to be awesome! It's great to see two poker giants collaborate to put on the best events for players. I'm really looking forward to both the Genting Poker Series and PokerStars MEGASTACK events, I'll see you at the tables!" Cody said.
