Unibet Open 2014

Thursday, 9 October 2014

London event returns 27- 30 November.

The Unibet Open returns to the capital this year to join a bumper autumn season of UK poker, and let us tell you, it's set to be a big one.

The last time London hosted the Unibet Open was in 2012, which saw high stakes cash player Pratik Ghatge storm past a field of 315 players, winning £85,050 for his efforts. However, this year is different – London's 2014 event will constitute the 30th edition of the Open, and Unibet are pulling out all the stops to celebrate the occasion. Not only has the player cap been significantly increased to 500, but they've also laid on a whopping €250,000 guaranteed prize pool, making it by far their biggest event yet.

The Location

The Unibet Open will once again be taking place in Aspers Casino in Stratford, East London. Billed as the UK's busiest super-casino, as well as the largest poker room in London, there's always plenty of action to be found both on and off the tables. Welcome drinks will be hosted at the luxurious Sky Bar on 27th November, while the Unibet Open Player's Party kicks off on the 30th.


How To Qualify

Players are spoilt for choice in terms of online satellites to the event, which are running now on Unibet Poker up until 16th November. These have options for all bankrolls, going from €1 all the way up to the €250 final every week (which guarantees six qualifying packages, worth €2,000 apiece). For full details, see www.unibetopen.com/qualify/.

Qualifiers will be getting the VIP treatment, with all packages including a free seat in the Main Event, four nights’ accommodation at a swanky London hotel, breakfast and dinner for the duration of the tournament, and €300 in travel expenses.

But that's not all. So excited for the upcoming festivities are Unibet that they have created a special slot mini-game in the Unibet Poker client (pictured) that is positively dripping with value. It's simple – the more flops you see at their online cash game tables, the more free spins you get, and all the prizes are Unibet Open-themed. These can be anything from a €2 satellite ticket to the aforementioned full package, worth €2,000.
