Online satellites are underway now on Paddy Power for the €1 million guaranteed Main Event at next year’s Irish Poker Open. The festival, the longest-running No Limit Hold’em tournament in the world outside of Vegas, is running from Monday, March 25 through to Monday, April 1. Next year will be the 40th edition of the festival and, once again, it will be taking place at the historic Royal Dublin Society venue in Ballsbridge.
The 2023 Irish Open Main Event was the biggest poker tournament ever held in Ireland and attracted a staggering 2,491 entries. The giant prize pool of €2,428,725 prize pool was way more than double the guarantee and, overall, players were awarded more than €4.5 million in prize money across the whole festival.
Paddy Power satellites
Paddy Power is giving players a chance to win their seat for next year’s Irish Poker Open for as little as 1 cent. For 2023, well over 200 players qualified on Paddy Power for the €1,150 Main Event. Greek player Panagiotis Mavritsakis turned his online satellite win into a massive €161,500 payday after finishing third. Other high-profile players who qualified on Paddy Power included Dara O’Kearney, Nic Newport, Niall McAree, Padraig O’Neill & Oliver Hutchins.
The 1-cent mini-feeders for the 2024 Irish Open are running multiple times a day and are just a hop, skip and a jump away (€1, €10) from the twice-weekly €50 qualifiers on Wednesdays and Sundays. The Sunday qualifiers offer two €1,150 Irish Open Seats guaranteed with both a re-buy and add-on available. There is another €50 satellite every Wednesday offering one seat guaranteed, also with rebuy & add-on available.
Early next year, Paddy Power will also be continuing its Tuesday Twitch game with a €1,150 seat added every Tuesday, starting in January next year.
Paddy Power Xmas Club rakeback promo
Paddy Power is offering an additional bonus this year with two opt-in “Paddy Power Xmas Club” rakeback promos running in November and December. The promos will culminate in a 10-seat guaranteed €100 satellite at the end of each promo period. Players who earn 10,000 points in either month are automatically registered into the satellite but players can also buy into the satellite which offers three re-entries.
