Pack your sun tan lotion, put your shades on, and whatever you do, don’t forget your swimsuit – because this winter, Unibet are offering you the chance to play poker in paradise!
Over the past five years, we’ve visited some of Europe’s most glamorous and exciting cities, bringing the unique Unibet spirit to thousands of happy poker players across the continent. So to celebrate, for our 5th Anniversary Special, we are pulling out all the stops. This December, the Unibet Open will be giving you an extra dose of sunshine, with our greatest ever poker festival taking place on the spectacular Caribbean island of St Maarten!
Our players’ home for the week will be the luxurious Sonesta Maho Beach Resort & Casino , a 10 acre beachfront complex in one of the Dutch Antilles’ most beautiful spots. This resort-within-a-resort features a luxury hotel and spa, the Casino Royale – the largest casino on the island – and all the shopping, dining and entertainment facilities you could need, all in one place. The resort is just five minutes from the island’s airport, and with direct flights from Amsterdam and Paris, getting there from Europe is a breeze as well.
Legend has it that St Maarten, the smallest island in the world split between two nations, was divided when one Frenchman and one Dutchman raced around the island, claiming the land they each covered for their own country. The Frenchman, fuelled by wine, made it around two thirds of the island. The Dutchman, powered by the somewhat stronger gin, only got a third. Whichever tipple you choose, though, we can guarantee that you will have the time of your life. With stunning beaches, perfect weather and the best restaurants and nightlife in the Caribbean, St Maarten is simply the ultimate poker player’s destination, and the ultimate location to enjoy the legendary Unibet hospitality.
The Main Event will be a €1,500+150 NLH freezeout, and for the first time ever we will be extending the tournament for an extra day to make sure you get to spend as much time enjoying the island as possible. And of course, if you are unlucky enough to bust out early from the tournament – well, this is the hottest tournament around in more than one sense, so we’re certain that you’ll find some way of occupying yourself for a week on the pristine white sandy beaches.
Unibet will be running online satellites for full packages worth €3,500 from freeroll up from April 23rd onwards, so even if your pockets are feeling the strain, there’s no reason why you can’t join in the party – click here for more info. So what are you waiting for? The water’s lovely – dive in!
