ISLE OF MAN – The Microgaming Poker Network (MPN) has seen some very large winners over the Easter period. The headline guaranteed tournament for the Easter Festival, which was the largest guaranteed tournament ever run on the MPN, paid out €750,000 to 130 players, with a Unibet player finishing in first place and taking home a life-changing €176,250.
The MTT Jackpot, a promotion that awards players who finish in the money in the daily 1-2-3 and 3-2-1 multi-table tournaments, was won for the first time by a Ladbrokes player, who received a huge €20,000 prize in addition to €678 in tournament winnings. The MTT Jackpot is a regular promotion on the MPN, with €20,000 being awarded to any player who can finish first in both tournaments. Players who finish in the money in both tournaments will also have their money doubled.
The Bad Beat Jackpot was also struck this week after recently being seeded with $200,000. The Jackpot was split by four players on 26th April, with the winner bringing in over $97,000. The top two finishers in the €750k Guaranteed and the lucky loser in the Bad Beat Jackpot were all Unibet players.
Daniel Eskola, Head of Poker at Unibet, comments on the wins: “It’s been a monumental last few days for Unibet players on the Microgaming Poker Network. With our new Poker Club, our Vegas “Bracelet Quest” promotion and our upcoming Unibet Open in Barcelona, there has never been a better time to play at Unibet Poker.”
