The 2023 PokerStars European Poker Tour Monte Carlo is fast approaching, kicking off on April 26. The EPT has been visiting Monte Carlo for years, and this year’s edition has the potential to be the most memorable yet, with a large number of participants expected. The exclusive principality on the Mediterranean Sea is sure to attract poker players from far and wide this spring.
However, as always, EPTs are not just about poker. The EPT will provide a full range of activities for players and their guests, ensuring that there is always something to do, whether you are at the poker table or not.
Here is a glimpse of what you can expect during the event.
Helicopter Tours of Monaco – Daily
During the EPT Monte Carlo, you have the chance to experience the thrill of touring Monaco in a helicopter. Every day, six slots are made available for players and guests to take advantage of this unique opportunity. This is sure to be a popular and remarkable experience that you wouldn’t want to miss out on. To participate, ensure that you sign up at the PokerStars Travel desk.
Get Fast & Furious with Super Car Rides – Daily
Monaco is a paradise for individuals who are passionate about speedy and luxurious cars. Every vehicle that drives by is a loud, fuel-consuming powerhouse that can hardly wait to zoom around Monte Carlo’s iconic racetrack.
As part of the EPT experience, PokerStars is providing players and guests with the opportunity to hop into a supercar and enjoy a 30-minute ride. Each day, a Lamborghini and a Ferrari will be parked outside, ready for you to take the wheel and experience the joys of driving these magnificent cars.
Monaco Bus Tours – Daily
If you desire to fully appreciate Monaco’s breathtaking sights instead of just glimpsing them in a flash, the ideal option is to embark on a city bus tour. You can obtain a ticket for the hop-on, hop-off bus through PokerStars Travel and explore Monaco at your own pace.
Monaco is a small place, but every corner is worth exploring. The bus tour takes you to several famous locations, such as Casino Square, the Japanese Garden, and a significant portion of the Monte Carlo Grand Prix racetrack. Additionally, you get to visit the charming old town, where you can find the exceptional Oceanographic Museum.
Visit Monaco’s Princes Palace – Daily
Monaco is home to several luxurious residences, but none compare to the official dwelling of the Prince of Monaco – a palace. Although receiving an invitation for tea might be out of the question, you can still explore the Grand Apartments and take in the palace’s opulence.
To access the palace, simply ask for a ticket at the PokerStars Travel desk. This provides you with an exclusive opportunity to glimpse into the extravagant lifestyle of the wealthiest residents of Monaco. The palace is situated on a hill, offering a breathtaking view of the entire Principality and the sea, making it an excellent location to explore.
This year’s EPT Monte Carlo Players Party will be held at the picturesque April Jardin of the Monte Carlo Bay Hotel. The location is perfect, with the Mediterranean Sea gently washing against the cliffs below. The entertainment for the night will be provided by the performers from the “Planète Vapeur” Circus, followed by our in-house DJ Zoya, who will spin some amazing tracks to keep the party going till dawn.
As usual, there will be an open bar and plenty of food to satisfy your cravings. Everyone is welcome to join in on the festivities. Just grab your wristbands from the PokerStars Travel desk and prepare for an unforgettable night of excitement and fun.
Spin The Wheel Prizes
At the EPT Monte Carlo, players are always given the opportunity to Spin the Wheel and win a PokerStars branded prize. However, the offerings at Monte Carlo are particularly noteworthy.
PokerStars has secured tickets to the 2023 Monaco E-Prix, which is the Formula E race that will take place on the world-renowned race track on May 6th. On this day, the fastest electronic cars will race around the legendary road circuit, coinciding with the EPT Main Event final table. These tickets will be the grand prize for those who spin the wheel in Monte Carlo.
Apart from the tickets, other prizes include helicopter and supercar rides, free massages, and PokerStars merchandise. To qualify for a wheel spin, players must complete a brief survey about their experience at EPT Monte Carlo. This survey is an essential tool for event planners to evaluate what aspects of the tour are successful and what requires improvement. The prizes are offered as a token of appreciation for the valuable feedback.
