Bwin Poker JOINS FORCES WITH MEC Poker Open

Today Bwin and MEC Pokerevents announced cooperation in sponsorship for the MEC Poker Open events which are held in Casino de Spa, Belgium.

The MEC Poker Open is a poker tour based in Belgium and is aimed at (semi)- recreational poker players who prefer to play a high quality, low buy in casino tournaments. This ensures that a great poker experience is guaranteed for all players.

The new partnership with bwin will include online promotions, online events and satellites to future stops for bwin customers.

April marks the start of bwin poker’s first ever collaboration with this new poker tour, giving poker enthusiast from across the Belgian region lots to celebrate this year. 

The first MEC Poker Open event held in October 2018 sold out in record time, which caught the attention of bwin poker.

Every MEC Poker Open event features exciting tournaments, bounty events, and cash games, with an emphasis on having fun and enjoying poker in one of the oldest casino ambiances of Europe.

The new partnership gets going from 4th -7th April at the next stop in Spa, Belgium. The final day will have a livestream you can find on the bwin poker website.

bwin players will be able to start competing in online satellites starting from 31st March with a direct seat only qualifier, 3 seats guaranteed and $11 buy-in.

Players will also find online qualifiers for future MEC Poker Open stops exclusively on bwin.

Robin van den Heuvel, bwin poker’s marketing manager said:

“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 Party Poker Live. Offering a slightly lower buy-in tier will be welcomed by our players for either the fun experience, or as an early exposure to the world of live poker.”

Mathijs Jonkers, founder MEC Poker Open said:

“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 the players a great poker event in a good and player friendly atmosphere. We are proud and excited to collaborate with one of the most recognised and trusted brands within the industry.”
