The European Poker Tour has reached a deal with Duracell Powermat that will see players offered free wireless mobile device charging during season 10 of the Tour.
Duracell Powermats wireless charging ‘hotspots’ will be incorporated within the design of the custom-made EPT10 tables with each player getting access to a drink-holder space and a Duracell Powermat hotspot wireless charging mat. Owners of Duracell Powermat phone case will be able to drop their phones on the ‘hotspot’ to power up wirelessly with Duracell Powermat Power Connectors provided to other users. “Smart phones are an essential part of a live tournament player’s kit, and a dead battery can be a disaster if you’re seated for hours at a poker table.” said EPT President Edgar Stuchly. “The EPT prides itself on offering the best player experience of any poker tour, so providing individual wireless charging for each player at the table is a natural progression to free Wi-Fi, which we introduced in Season 9.”All online qualifiers to EPT Main Event this season will be awarded free Duracell Powermat charging products. “Wireless charging technology is becoming mainstream and people are beginning to expect it everywhere, just like Wi-Fi.,” Ran Poliakine, CEO of Powermat Technologies, the proprietor of wireless charging technology, said. “Expanding our wireless charging technology to the EPT will prevent players from losing mobile power as they play poker for hours each day. We are pleased to be adding the EPT to our list of partners that includes AT&T, Starbucks and many others.” The new EPT season gets under way in Barcelona next week with a packed roster of events running from 26 August until 7 September. Qualifiers for the €5,000 Main Event, which starts on 1 September are up and running at PokerStars.
