PokerStars and Ukash offering seats to EPT event

9 Mar 2010

LONDON, England -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Ukash has joined forces with PokerStars, the world's largest poker site, to offer first-time Ukash users in Europe a chance to win a seat at the European Poker Tour event and an all-expenses paid trip to San Remo to play poker with world champions and scores of top professionals.

This year, in response to the event's growing popularity, the EPT San Remo will take place over seven days from 15 – 21 April, and one lucky Ukash customer can win the chance to play at the tournament, along with flights, accommodation and spending money.

Consumers across Europe who deposit Ukash for the first time at PokerStars during the month of March and enter the promotional code UKASHSR, will be entered into a free roll at the end of the month to win the seat. There will also be 1500 Euros added to the prize pool.

Last year, the final table of the EPT Main Event in San Remo was one of tension and unpredictable aggression. Constant Rijkenberg, a 20-year-old student from Amsterdam, beat Finland's Kalle Niemi heads-up after six hours of play to claim €1,508,000 and the EPT champion title. A total of 1,177 players competed, creating a total prize pool of €5,713,300.

Mark Chirnside, Chief Executive Officer, Ukash, said: "This is an exciting chance to offer Ukash users a once in a lifetime opportunity to play poker alongside poker's elite. By partnering with PokerStars to offer first-time Ukash depositors such a valuable prize, we hope to show players across Europe the benefits of using Ukash as they join the millions of consumers who already use cash to bet online."

Ukash, the world's largest prepaid cash-issuing estate, is a service for the millions of PokerStars players in Europe who prefer to place bets online with cash.

Quote from PokerStars: "Providing Ukash as a payment method on PokerStars has introduced a new demographic to our site – the cash customer. Thousands of our players benefit from using Ukash an easy system for depositing money when betting online, and we look forward to working with Ukash to give one lucky customer the chance of a lifetime – to play poker alongside the world's best."

Globally, Ukash is available at more than 320,000 physical issuing points and spans 29 countries.
