Acroud is announcing their launch of an innovative kind of live gambling event – The Festival Series. A weeklong player meetup and celebration which combines the best live poker, casino and sports events all in one scene. The Festival will make several stops across various cities around the globe, starting in Europe.
Head over to the official Festival Facebook Page for all the latest updates.
The debut in Tallinn, Estonia from June 7-13, 2021 (COVID-permitting) will consist of an array of competitive roulette and blackjack tournaments alongside live poker tournaments and cash games. All the standard player favorites will feature inside a jam-packed 7-day schedule, with events running around the clock. A full schedule is being finalized as we speak and a tentative version can be viewed at thefestival.com.
Players will compete for immense cash prizes and bragging rights. Yet, The Festivals will also play host to celebrations and leisure activities which players can enjoy together outside the casino too. Thus, offering plenty of opportunities to really take in the city where the given event will take place.
“With the poker world longing to play live again, we are happy to announce our new tournament series starting in 2021.” Says Kresten Hougaard, Head of Brands at PokerListings. “With the implementation of blackjack and roulette tournaments, and eventually a sports betting side, as well as special tournaments like Sviten Special, we hope to attract a wider audience and make this a fantastic Festival at every stop. We look forward to getting the first cards in the air in in June!”
First Festival Location
The first stop in The Festival series will be Tallinn, Estonia with a COVID-contingency plan to move packages over to the next event if necessary. Followed by the Bratislava, Slovakia, stop, which has already been confirmed for September, 2021 and which will add competitive sports betting.
Olympic Park Casino
The Festival aims to put up the latest evolution of online gambling event series, with an original take on structure and variety. Live venues like the Olympic Park Casino has already confirmed their partnership for the initial events. With more live casino partners to be announced soon.
“I’m thrilled to be part of the premiere The Festival in Tallinn”, says Risto Suurpõld, Olympic Park Casino Manager. “I see this as an excellent opportunity to provide players with something fresh. A great experience, and some worthy prizes along the way. We hope to serve as a long-time partner for the series.”
Jan Packa, Marketing Director of Banco Casino continued: “This is a great way to bring players together and align with like-minded casino and poker brands. I can’t wait to see a big turnout and how well it will be received.”
Complete experience packages for buy-ins, accommodation and celebrations will be available shortly through the official website. With the freedom to also purchase smaller packages and enter/buy-into more events on the fly. The participants are the stars of the show and will set the tone for upcoming events with their choices and feedback.
Players also get the opportunity to enter online qualifiers and satellites through poker, sports betting and casino site partners. Like OlyBet, the online arm of Olympic Entertainment Group. There will also be live qualifiers held at Olympic Park Casino itself. Through all qualifiers, players can win all-inclusive packages to The Festival Series event for just a small buy-in or entry bet. Thus, making this an inclusive event for players of all backgrounds and playing levels.
More details regarding online qualifiers will be released in the coming weeks on the event’s official channels. There are also plans for live coverage of the events on Twitch as well as live reporting for poker and more. This will all be confirmed at a later date.
“It’s super exciting to see this all finally line up and fall into place.” says Martin “Franke” von Zweigbergk, the man behind the whole event. “We are here to offer a fun challenge, spread the joy and enable long-lasting relationships. All in beautiful cities around the globe. What a great way for new and old friends to meet and enjoy a good time together through their favorite games. Welcome!”
