A Bwin Casino and MEC Poker Open partnership has just been announced. From 4th-7th April, the brand will sponsor the second edition of the tour, taking place in Casino de Spa, Belgium.
Bwin Casino and MEC Poker Open partnership will make the tour a success worldwide
This is the first collaboration between Bwin and the poker tour, whose first event sold out in no time. Bwin will be responsible for online promotions, events, and satellites to the next MEC Poker Open. As shown in the review about Bwin Casino, the brand is leading the online gambling industry, which means that this new collaboration will be very rewarding for MEC Poker.
MEC Poker Open’s main goal is to guarantee an unforgettable experience in one of the oldest casinos in Europe. The event targets recreational players who, despite willing to play low buy-in tournaments, still want a high-quality poker experience.
As Mathijs Jonkers, the founder of MEC Poker Open stated
“Partnering up with bwin marks a new chapter for MEC Poker Open and promises many extras that our players will enjoy for sure. With the MEC Poker Open, we hope to give players a great poker event in a good and player friendly atmosphere. We are proud and excited to collaborate with one of the most recognized and trusted brands within the industry.”
MEC Poker Open live streams will be available at Bwin’s website
The Bwin Casino website will live stream the final day of the tour. This will provide players with the possibility to watch the MEC Poker Open live.
Robin van den Heuvel, Bwin’s marketing manager, has also highlighted the benefits of this agreement for both sides, saying
“Our new collaboration with the MEC Poker Open is a unique one and a recognition of how successful we believe the MEC Poker Open events will be. MEC Poker Open complements our already strong live offering supported by partypokerLIVE. Offering a slightly lower buy-in tier will be welcomed by our players for either a purely fun experience, or as an early exposure to the world of live poker.”
Bwin Casino will hold MEC Poker Open satellites
Bwin players will also be able to compete in online poker tournaments. This will give them the chance to win entries to the main events. And Bwin Casino will have the exclusivity to hold these online qualifiers.
As online sportsbook news sites in Belgium report, the first satellite will be on the 31st of March, with an $11 buy-in and three seats are guaranteed to the MEC Poker Open in April.
