MPN's Festival of Speed begins 8 June 2017

ISLE OF MAN – From Goodwood to Glastonbury, the best thing about summer is the festivals! So, the MPN is pleased to announce the Festival of Speed – a thrilling promotion for June, combining fast-paced action across a multitude of poker variants. There’s something speedy for everyone!

The Festival of Speed runs from Thursday 8 to Sunday 25 June. The ‘headline act’ of the festival is a series of Super Turbo tournaments - €50,000 is guaranteed across 39 super turbo events, with buy-ins starting as low as €1.10.

For Sit & Go players, Turbo and Super Turbo Sit & Gos between €1 and €20 all have money added to the prize pool. The more of these fast-paced tournaments players take part in, the better their chance of scooping up some added cash.

Blazing Cannon also makes a return for the Festival of Speed. This unique mini-game gives players a chance to win up to €100, simply by taking part in Blaze Poker games. Each time a player wins 20 pots, they get a chance to play the Blazing Cannon bonus round, and take aim at a house of playing cards.

As if that wasn’t enough, those dedicated players who take part in all three parts of the promotion (tournament series, Blazing Cannon and added money Turbo Sit & Gos) can earn exclusive entry to the €5,000 Festival Flash Freeroll on Sunday 2 July 2017.

Players wanting to play Festival of Speed in the sun can also take advantage of Microgaming’s recently upgraded mobile poker client. Now offered by thirteen brands, the mobile client allows players to take part in the super-fast tournaments and Blaze Poker action on the move, using an iOS or Android smartphone or tablet.

Full details of the Festival of Speed promotion can be found here.

“In summer players don’t have as much time to spend at the tables. There are family BBQs to go to, festivals to attend, and heatwaves to complain about. Therefore, it’s the perfect time for the MPN to focus on high-speed play. Players can take part in some top-notch poker action without having to stay indoors for hours on end – that’s what the Festival of Speed delivers!”
