The World Poker Tour is heading to France and Italy next year as the company announced three stops in the countries for 2023 last week. The tour is partnering with the Texapoker group to present several WPT Prime festivals in western Europe.

“Even amidst an incredible 20th-anniversary season, we are preparing for our progression into 2023,” WPT CEO Adam Pliska said in a news release. “Partnering with Texapoker provides us with a wonderful opportunity to return the WPT brand to the French market.”

The two-year agreement with Texapoker promises three poker series each of the next two years.

A look at the French, Italian WPT events

WPT Prime kicks off the WPT’s Season XXI live tour schedule on Jan. 22 with a festival at Club Circus Paris in France. The €1,100 buy-in main event runs Feb. 1-5.

“To welcome the WPT in our Circus Club in 2023 is a big triumph for the city of Paris, the poker players, our club, and our group company,” a Club Circus Paris executive said in announcing the series.

“Paris is the poker capital of Europe. The Circus brand, which is in six countries and two continents, continues to develop and this partnership strengthens the Club as a stronghold of Parisian poker.”

The next stop is the WPT Prime Aix-en-Provence from Oct. 9-15 at Pasino Grand. This is the first time the tour has ventured to Aix-en-Provence in southern France. PMU.fr will offer online satellites for French players to win seats to the $1,100 championship events.

The WPT Prime Sanremo festival series runs June 5-11 at Casinò di Sanremo in Italy, near the southwestern border of France. The property also hosted a WPTDeepStacks event in June 2018. That tour has been phased out and now replaced by WPT Prime.

The online poker action continues in the WPT World Online Championships at partypoker through this weekend with plenty more on the agenda.

Gearing up for WPT World Championships

As an added bonus to the new partnership, Texapoker will give away seats to the upcoming WPT World Championship. Four French Championship of Poker winners will earn seats.

“Eleven years after my first WPT partnership, I am very pleased and proud to work with this brand and to run three stops in France and Italy,” Texapoker chairman and CEO Apo Chantzis said.

Here’s a look at the three French and Italian WPT Prime stops:

  • WPT Prime Paris, Club Circus Paris (France) – Jan. 22 – Feb. 5
  • WPT Prime Sanremo, Casinò di Sanremo (Italy) – June 5-11
  • WPT Prime Aix-en-Provence, Pasino Grand (France) – Oct. 9-15

Special PokerStars Sunday Million added to SECOOP, ICOOP

Due to the cancellation of the Galactic Series Main Events during the recent PokerStars DDoS attack attempts, the company has added a special edition Sunday Million tournament on Nov. 6 as part of the COOP series.. Each tournament features a €1 million guarantee.

Players can buy in to the action directly for €250. Special SECOOP Spin & Go’s and satellites also award seats and begin at just €3. The Sunday Million also includes €147,000 in added value satellites in SECOOP and €165,000 in ICOOP. 

“As with our WCOOP 2022: Take 2 events, we wanted to ensure our Southern European and Italian community also have the chance to take to the tables and play for a coveted title,” PokerStars director of online poker experience Chris Straghalissaid in a news release.

“The Sunday Million is one of our most prestigious tournaments and due to the Galactic Series cancellations, we’ve added thousands in added value satellites to give players plenty of ways to enjoy the Sunday Million and the SECOOP and ICOOP series.”

Highlights from the series 

The SECOOP and ICOOP schedules are packed with nice payouts. Players will find at least one €50,000 guaranteed tournament running every day of the SECOOP series.

The Southern Europe platform is available in a combined player pool including online poker players from:

Both series culminate with Main Events on Nov. 20. This includes €400,000 guaranteed in Southern Europe and €150,000 in Italy.

Second chance freerolls will also be available for players in France, Spain, and Portugal. These offer additional opportunities for players to win their way into the series. Here’s a look at the complete schedule.

BLAST Brings Seven-Figure Bonanza At 888poker; $1M Big Shot Starting Flights Continue 

A small buy-in paid off in a big way recently for three lucky Italian players at 888poker, landing a €1 million jackpot prize pool.

A small buy-in paid off in a big way recently for three lucky Italian players at 888poker. The trio sat down for one of the site’s €1 BLAST Sit & Go tournaments and quickly found themselves playing for a jackpot prize pool of €1 million.

AM,” a 54-year-old woman from the town of Mentana, ultimately walked away as the tournament’s big winner. She scored €700,000 for coming out on top and was shocked at her good fortune.

“When I realized that the €1 million jackpot had been hit,” she said in a news release, “I started screaming so much that my son got scared. I couldn’t believe it!”

Hitting it big at 888poker

While AM was the event’s big winner, the other woman and man at the table also fared well. Unlike traditional BLAST events, second- and third-place finishers also score a nice prize. Here are the payouts for all three players:

  • 1st – ”ilaria200651” (aka AM), €700,000
  • 2nd – ”ele76m”, €200,000
  • 3rd – ”Adria74”, €100,000

The sudden windfall was nice, but AM has no plans of slowing down or making any major life changes.

No doubt the six-figure cash can come in handy however. She plans on using some to help her family.

“We are a family of workers, and we will continue to work,” she said. “But, at least, now we can realize our dreams. We have four children – the eldest is 35, the youngest 15.

“So, it’s important for us to give them everything they need – to send the youngest to a good university and to help the eldest with the house loan. And we can have a bigger house now, too.”

Second-place finisher, 44-year-old EM from the town of Civita Castellana in Viterbo, didn’t initially see the amount she was playing for.

“At the beginning, I didn’t realize it,” she says.

After she noticed the funds in her account however, EM understood how large of a BLAST she had actually been playing. She already has some plans for the money.

“Incredible!” she says of the win. “I will use it to renovate my house.”

The remaining €100,000 went to AC, a player from Sondrio. He was certainly pleased with his results as well.

How do BLAST Sit & Go tournaments work?

Players looking to get in a BLAST Jackpot Sit & Go will find three-handed tournaments with a randomly-set prize pool. Each winner-take-all game kicks off with a drawing to determine the prize pool.

The prize is most often double a player’s buy-in. However, the amount can also be several times the buy-in and even more, as these three lucky players found out.

Once the prize pool is determined, players receive a starting stack of 1,500 chips. The BLAST blind structure and prize pool distribution are determined according to a multiplier.

Participants then play as in a normal tournament. However, once a timer runs out, all three players are all in every hand until only one is left standing.

$1 million Big Shot qualifiers continue

Other 888poker players have a shot at a nice payday in September as well. The site is currently running a special version of the site’s popular Sunday Big Shot tournament.

The event normally features a $109 buy-in with a $150,000 guaranteed prize pool. Throughout September, however, 888 is running numerous starting flights culminating with the Big Shot Special Edition on Sept. 27 with a $1 million guarantee.

888poker's special multi-flight $1 million Big Shot Special Edition promises something massive throughout September.

Players advancing past a starting flight then have an opportunity to play for a share of the massive prize pool. 888 is also offering numerous opportunities to play in the event at a bargain price. That includes:

  • Day 1 Flight Freerolls
  • 24/7 Day 1 satellites
  • Winner Spinner contests awarding free Day 1 tickets
  • Gift drops including free tournament seats

Players can also score tournament tickets via social media contests, 888pokerTV and StreamTeam activities, and ambassador special events. The tournament is the biggest 888 event so far this year.

Along with the international platform, MicroMillions also heads to PokerStars Southern Europe and Italy from July 18 to Aug. 1.

PokerStars players in France, Spain, and Portugal can play for more than €3 million in guaranteed prizes across 174 events. PokerStars also hosts a €50 Progressive Knockout Main Event on Aug. 1 featuring a €250,000 guarantee.

PKOs are a special type of bounty tournament. When a player eliminates an opponent, that player cashes in 50% of the opponent’s bounty. Those funds go directly into the winning player’s own account.

The other half of that bounty is added to the bounty on the winning player’s head. Every knockout the player wins, the larger the price becomes on his own head. As the tournament progresses, players earn bigger bounties for knocking out opponents

During the same time, PokerStars Italy will host its MicroMillions series with €1.2 million guaranteed among 90 events. The €50 Main Event is planned for Aug. 1 and comes with a €150,000 guarantee. Here’s a look at the complete Southern Europe and Italian schedules:

“We are delighted to partner with WPTDeepStacks to bring an exciting multi-network series to 888poker players this spring,” 888 Senior Vice President Guy Cohen said in a news release. “These events provide poker players in global markets a great chance to experience the exclusive and prestigious WPTDS’ events online.

“As part of our ‘Made to Play’ approach, players will enjoy the experience of playing our best in class product along with affordable buy-ins and big guarantees to enjoy the highest level of online poker offering.”

Major events across 888poker platforms

The three series offer players the opportunity to compete for major prize pools and a WPTDeepStacks title. The concurrent festivals mark the first time 888’s three networks are synced playing a major series.

The festivals also offer players a chance to check out the new 888poker “Made to Play” software platform. Tour events feature lower buy-ins, large prize pools, and a shot at a prestigious tour title.

 “The World Poker Tour’s online presence continues to grow and these three concurrent series mark further expansion of the WPTDeepStacks brand,” WPT CEO Adam Pliska said.

The $1,050 buy-in London version has players competing for more than $2 million in guaranteed prizes. That includes a $1 million main event.

The WPTDS Iberia and Italy main events feature single starting flights on April 25 with a €125 buy-in and €150,000 guarantees.

The Iberia main event comes with a guarantee of €400,000 and the Italian series with €350,000. Each network will feature 16 events and all 48 winners receive a WPTDeepStacks trophy.

Other notes about the WPTDS events at 888poker 

Satellites for the multi-flight London main event begin on March 5. Starting flights also run daily from April 18-25. Day 2 crowns a winner on April 26.

Poker fans hoping to check out the action will find four days of live streaming. David Tuchman, Nick Wealthall, and Matt Savage will call the action at the tables.

888 ambassadors and WPT Champions Chris Moorman and Dominik Nitsche will be taking part in the festival along with the site’s other pros. 

“WPTDeepStacks and 888poker are thrilled to partner online for this incredible series for the entire 888poker network,” WPT Europe Vice President Hermance Blum said.

“Players across all of 888poker networks can look forward to competing for a major title with all buy-in levels available.”

The €250 Main Event highlights the series on March 7 with €500,000 guaranteed. The €50 Phase Event also should interest players with a guarantee of €150,000.

A phase tournament is a bit different than a traditional tournament with satellite entries. Phase tournament allowed players to get in qualifying “phases” to qualify for the main tournament.

Unlike a satellite tournament, players who advance actually can carry their ship stack over to the target event.

Beyond the Main Event, the €10 Classic Carnaval Special PKO is planned for Feb. 21 with €300,000 guaranteed. This event becomes the largest €10 event ever in Southern Europe.

Players can win entry to the series through satellites starting at €0.50. Main Event entries can also be won in €12.50 Spin & Go’s. A Depositor Freeroll on March 6 also awards €25,000 worth of Main Event tickets. Here’s a look at the complete schedule.

PokerStars Carnival Series in Italy

At PokerStars Italy, the Carnival Series has over €5 million guaranteed across 105 events. The Main Event takes place on March 7 with a €500,000 guarantee.

Players can win entry into that event through €12.50 Spin & Go’s. Italian players can also take advantage of a €25,000 Depositor Freeroll on March 6.

Those winners also earn a Main Event entry.The schedule also includes several events in the progressive knockout (PKO) format.

In this type of bounty tournament, players only win a portion of an opponent’s bounty. A portion of that is also added to the winning player’s bounty.

That means each player’s bounty can increase throughout the tournament. This adds an interesting twist to bounty tournaments and means more bounty loot the deeper a player goes.

Here’s a look at the complete schedule.

PokerStars Winter Series Brings €21 Million Guaranteed; €225,000 in Tickets Up for Grabs

With the PokerStars Winter Series already underway, players in Southern Europe and Italy can also now get in on the action through Jan. 16.

The Winter Series is back at PokerStars for players in Southern Europe and Italy. The series features three weeks of action from Dec. 25 to Jan. 17 with a total €21 million guaranteed between both platforms.

Players in France, Spain, and Portugal can expect 303 events with more than €15 million guaranteed. Buy-ins range from €5 to €250 with €1 million guaranteed in the Main Event on Jan. 10.

Players will also find a variety of other events including a €30 Phase tournament with €1 million guaranteed. PokerStars is also throwing in plenty of extras for players.

“The Winter Series has become a staple in our offering for Southern Europe and Italy and we’re happy to bring this unique year to a close with it,” PokerStars managing director and commercial officer Severin Rasset said.

“We wanted to give our community many chances to qualify for the series so we’re really excited to be able to award $225,000 in tickets through a variety of routes. We hope this brings some well-needed holiday cheer to our community.”

PokerStars Winter Series brings huge schedule to Southern Europe

The Winter Series action heats up this winter at PokerStars .EU with $15 million guaranteed. The €250 Main Event highlights the series and features the progressive knockout (PKO) format. The tournament comes with a €1 million guarantee.

A PKO event is a bit different than a traditional bounty tournament. Every time a player knocks someone out, he or she wins only a portion of that bounty.

The other portion is added to the winner’s bounty. A PKO adds some fun elements to the game. The farther a player goes, the more bounty money on his or her head.

Players can win their way into the series via the Winter Series Ticket Machine. This promotion offers players €200,000 worth of tickets from Dec. 28 to Jan. 10.

To take part, players must opt in via the challenges window. Those then playing a Winter Series event are entered into a daily drawing.

The higher the tournament buy-in, the more entries a player receives. Special €12.50 Spin & Go’s in France and Spain also offer the opportunity to win a Main Event seat. Here’s a look at the complete series (the first two unavailable at press time):

Italy Vote To End All Gambling Advertising Will Be Counter-Productive

ItalGambling

Italy’s Senate has voted in favor of the “Dignity Decree” which includes provisions to ban all gambling advertising absolutely.

In the short term, the impact is likely to be:

  • a reduction in the percentage of players choosing to play at nationally regulated poker rooms;
  • an increase in customers choosing black market sites;
  • a reduction in revenues for both government and industry,
  • and potentially an increase in problem gambling.

In other words, the new laws are likely to have exactly the opposite effect to that which is intended.

A new populist government is in power

The government is a coalition of the nationalist and euro-sceptic “Lega Nord,” Northern League, run by Matteo Salvini, and the anti-establishment “Movimento 5 Stelle,” 5 Star Movement run by Luigi Di Maio.

Their coalition is considered to be part of a populist movement spreading throughout Europe. The Italian Prime Minister, law professor Giuseppe Conte was appointed as a figure head after 88 days of negotiations between the two parties.

Deputy Prime Minister Luigi Di Maio commented on the vote:

“After decades, we have the first decree that was not written by economic lobbyists and vested interests. Today Italy sets a record in Europe: The first country to have abolished gambling advertising.”

Italian gambling advertising was well regulated until now

Italy has had nationally regulated online poker open to international companies since 2010, with tournament poker first to be permitted, followed by cash game poker a year later.

The market was heavily taxed initially, but taxes have now been equalized at 20 percent of Gross Gaming Revenue for all forms of online gambling, and restrictive lists of permissible sports matches for betting have now been all but eradicated.

There has always been a vocal opposition to gambling advertising, but the laws governing advertising were strengthened in 2012 with the Balduzzi Decree and again in 2016 when responsibility for enforcing the regulations switched from the gambling regulator AAMS to advertising regulator AGCOM.

The black market will be the first beneficiaries

One of the difficulties in a nationally segregated market like Italy is encouraging players to switch from unlicensed sites to the state regulated poker rooms.

This is exacerbated in Italy by the gambling law provisions which make winnings liable to income taxes with the operators required to cooperate with the Italian tax authorities in disclosing information on player data.

The fact that the market is segregated also means that larger tournament guarantees are often available at the black market sites. Italy is considering joining the shared liquidity pool established by Spain, France and Portugal, but it has not yet done so.

Add all the factors and a large proportion of the Italian market does not play at regulated poker rooms. Advertising was the main tool that officially authorized operators such as PokerStars.IT could use to attract this market.

Now that that tool is unavailable, it is inevitable that fewer players will be able to tell the difference between what sites are and are not regulated.

And Italy has a problem with organised crime involvement in online gambling. In July 2015 the price seized €2 billion ($2.3 billion) in raids targeting gambling operations run by the ‘Ndrangheta mafia organization.

The scope of the problem can be seen in the range of police targets: 1,500 betting shops, 82 gambling websites, 45 Italian companies and 11 foreign firms, as well as “innumerable” property assets.

Tax revenues will take a dive

Paddy Power Betfair published their half year results on August 8, and during the earnings call CEO Peter Jackson was asked about the prospects for growth in the Italian market. The ban on advertising was clearly at the front of his mind when he replied without hesitation:

“It’s tough to grow when you can’t advertise.”

If state regulated and taxed online poker operators see revenues falling, then it follows that government tax receipts will fall too.

According to a report by Poker Industry PRO (paywall) the impact is already visible:

“Unlicensed and unauthorized offshore sites have started appearing at the top of the search results, while Italian-licensed sites have dropped down below.”

Reducing gambling doesn’t necessarily mean reducing problem gambling

The government’s aim is simple. It wants to reduce the harm done by gambling by reducing the amount of gambling. They are prepared to take a revenue drop if that’s the price to be paid.

And their aims are laudable. A government report released in October 2015 indicated that around 1.3 million people in Italy are gambling addicts or presenting behaviors associated with problem gambling.

However, the international experience is indisputable.

The best way to reduce problem gambling is to bring players into a regulated environment where problems can be identified early and interventions can be mandated. Players at risk of problem gambling can then be encouraged to seek help within a locally responsive system.

Italy has gone the wrong way in addressing the problem and will probably exacerbate rather than reduce it.

Industry association LOGiCO, whose members include The Stars Group, Bwin, Bet365, William Hill, and the Kindred Group , and the European Betting and Gaming Association (EGBA) have immediately announced their opposition to the ban. In a letter to Italian ministers they state:

“While fully sharing the concerns of the institutions with regard to problem gambling, LOGiCO does not believe that this ban can produce positive effects in terms of player protection or reduce—and certainly not eliminate—the risks derived from an uncontrolled practice of the games themselves.

But while a total blanket ban on advertising may seem like an obvious measure, it is not a “silver bullet” and will actually have a counterproductive effect.”

The EU may intervene but don’t hold your breath

In the EU, all government legislation must be notified to the EU Commission before it can be enacted. In the case of this advertising ban, the Italian government has failed to follow the rules.

This failure could lead to intervention by the EU Commission that might at least delay the new laws. Similarly there is some scope for a challenge based on the rights businesses have to operate fairly, but this is stretching the treaties probably further than they can go.

There may be some hope of legal challenge, but the harsh reality is that the industry will probably just have to put up with the restrictions for the foreseeable future.
