Since we launched Pokerfest in 2011, we’ve made a number of changes to the events offered following the feedback from you, our loyal and valued customers. After listening to you once again, and the fact we’re dedicated to bringing poker back to the people, this latest Pokerfest has something for online and live poker aficionados.
For the first time in Pokerfest history, we have added a live poker element to it. Utilising our exclusive partnership with Dusk Till Dawn (DTD), we’re running Pokerfest Live.
Featuring 10 events over the course of nine days (August 28-September 6, 2015) of intense poker action, Pokerfest Live looks set to be a roaring success and a major hit with live poker players. The fact there are more than £620,000 of guaranteed prize pools to play for only goes to add more excitement and buzz to the inaugural festival.
The £300+£30 ($550) buy-in £300,000 ($500,000) guaranteed is one of many highlights during Pokerfest Live and with satellites running around the clock, you could be playing for a potentially life-changing sum of money for mere pennies.
Other key events include a Seniors event, a six-max tournament, a £1,000+£100 buy-in High Roller, and something of a rarity in British poker circles, a Ladies event.

Earning Lucrative Golden Chips
If you’re planning on playing the Pokerfest Live Main Event then you simply have to try and earn some Golden Chips in the run up to it.
These Golden Chips are credited to your account whenever you hit a points landmark and you can earn up to five of them. Anyone who earns five Golden Chips and then goes on to reach the final table receives a cool £15,000 and should they win the Main Event, their winnings are doubled!
|Golden Chips||Points target||Prize|
|5||5,000||Last longer entry + £15,000 if you reach the final table + win the Main Event and your winnings are doubled|
|4||2,000||Last longer entry + £7,500 if you reach the final table|
|3||750||Last longer entry + £2,500 if you reach the final table|
|2||200||Last longer entry + £1,000 if you reach the final table|
|1||50||Last longer entry|
What is the last longer bet?
You may be wondering what the Last Longer entry is and what the promotion entails, so let us tell you. The top 100 finishers who have earned Golden Chips all receive a prize for being the last Golden Chips players to remain in the Main Event.
Whovever the last Golden Chip player to bust from the Pokerfest Live Main Event is, walks away with a $3,500 DTD Ticket that you could use to enter the upcoming World Poker Tour Nottingham Main Event with!
|Last longer place||Prize|
|1||$3,500 DTD ticket|
|2-5||$550 DTD Ticket|
|6-10||$120 DTD Ticket|
|11-20||$27.50 DTD Ticket|
|21-100||$5.50 DTD Ticket|
Use your DTD Tickets to play Pokerfest Live
Our DTD Ticket tournaments are some of the most popular in the partypoker lobby and Pokerfest Live is the perfect opportunity to spend them. You can enter any of the £60+£10 buy-in events with a $120 DTD Ticket and any of the £300+£30 buy-in tournaments with a $550 DTD Ticket. What’s more, if you have multiple $550 DTD Tickets, you can exchange them for cash at the DTD cashier desk to cover your expenses!
If you have been saving up your points and wondering what to spend them on why not exchange some for a $120 or $550 DTD Ticket via the loyalty store? These tickets can be bought by Gold and Palladium VIPs with players at the Palladium loyalty level able to buy the tickets at the equivalent of 30% cashback, which we’re sure you’ll agree is amazing value.
