UltimateBet has confirmed rumours that its Caribbean tournament will be returning to Aruba for the sixth year in a row.
'We're thrilled to announce that we're bringing the UltimateBet Aruba Poker Classic back to Aruba this September,' said UltimateBet spokesperson George MacLean. 'With an estimated $2.5 million prize pool, this year's event promises to be bigger, better and hotter than ever.'
Online poker players can win an $8,500 Aruba prize package at UltimateBet.com through a series of freerolls and paid satellites. The prize package includes the $5,500 main event seat and $3,000 for travel and accommodation.
At last year’s tourney, Devon Miller captured the title, taking home $774,960 in cold, hard cash. This year, with an estimated 750 players in the tournament, the first place prize is expected to be even larger.
The weeklong tournament, scheduled for 23 to 30 September gives online poker players the chance to celebrate their successes at the tables with poker's best pros. Past Aruba Poker Classic players have included Phil Hellmuth, Jennifer Tilly, Phil 'The Unabomber' Laak and Annie Duke.
Scott Ian from thrash metal band Anthrax has already secured a seat in this year's event after winning VH1's Rock Stars of Poker.
