If, like us, you are a fan of the quality live casino experience that 888 Casino consistently delivers and also enjoys playing live poker, news of the latest 888poker Live High Stakes Festival might just appeal.

Rather than taking on the dealers at your favourite online live casinos, you can now pit your wits against fellow players as you look to take home a piece of the tournament prize pools.

If you live in the UK or can get there before April 21, this live poker festival has 9 tournaments spread across an action-packed schedule that runs for 11 days until May 1.

Hosted at the illustrious Grosvenor Victoria Casino in London, this festival follows the 888poker LIVE festival that took place just a month prior.

Buy-ins range from £150 right up to the £3,000 required to enter the High Roller Event, which alongside the £2,100 Main Event is among the festival’s main highlights. Other tournaments include the £1,000 Pot Limit Omaha High Roller, £1,000 888poker Cup, and the £444 Big Shot.

If your bankroll does not accommodate buy-ins that large, you have two options. You can try to win online satellite tournaments starting from £0.01 at the 888poker platform or enter satellites at the festival itself for a £225 buy-in. Alternatively, you can enter some of the lower buy-in events at the Live High Stakes Festival instead.

888poker Returns to London Once More: The last time 888poker descended on London was just a month ago when the leading poker platform hosted the 888poker LIVE Festival. Joe Hindry, a UK-based player that recently won the 2022 GUKPT Coventry Main Event for £93,460, continued his winning ways by taking down the £444 Main Event title and the £60,000 top prize that came with it.

9 Tournaments Spread Across 11 Days at the Grosvenor Victoria Casino in London

In the accompanying box, you will see each of the poker tournaments that will take place at the 888poker LIVE High Stakes Festival and the dates when they start. April 20 begins with a satellite tournament that will win you a ticket into the 888poker Cup, which kicks off with all the main action the following day.

However, if it is the Main Event you are interested in, this does not start until Thursday the 28th of April and for those who last long enough, will run until Sunday the 1st of May. As for the high rollers among you, the High Roller event is a one-day tournament on Wednesday the 27th!

Not to be confused with live casino poker: The tournaments at the 888poker LIVE High Stakes Festival involve traditional variations of poker, such as Unlimited Texas Hold’em and Pot Limit Omaha. Players compete against each other rather than you would against the casino when playing live poker games such Casino Hold’em or Caribbean Stud Poker.
