If you have bought into the tournament directly through the poker client, please contact to provide your details after registering.

Please Note: If you are a resident of Malta, you must be at least 25 years old to play in the event. If you are not a resident of Malta, you must be at least 18 years old to play.

The Casino’s Rules

The casino has house rules for poker which you should abide by. Read the House Rules

The casino also has a Smart Casual dress code. Swimwear is not allowed in the casino, and after 8pm shorts and sleeveless shirts are not allowed.

You will require government-issued ID, so please don’t forget to bring your passport, driving licence, or ID card.


Accommodation will be provided at The George Hotel. You will check in on 11th September, and check out on the 15th September. If you require any additional hotel nights please speak with your poker room or MPNPT co-ordinator, and we may be able to arrange something.

The hotel accommodation includes breakfast and free wi-fi is available.  You are responsible for any additional charges to the room. You may be asked to present a credit card on arrival to cover any room charges – this won’t be debited unless you do charge something to your room.

Getting There

The easiest way to get to Malta is to fly to Malta International Airport (MLA, formerly known as Luqa Airport). There are direct flights from many European airports.

We recommend that you get a taxi from the airport to your hotel, which will cost around €20. We do not recommend hiring a car in Malta, as Maltese roads are terrifying.

Once at The George hotel, the casino is just a short walk away:

Welcome Drinks – 7:30pm on Thursday 11th September

You and a guest are invited to welcome drinks, which will be held at The Rooftop at Hugo’s Terrace, which is in the heart of Paceville, with a view of the beach, just six minutes’ walk from the hotel. Go upstairs to the rooftop where we have reserved a private area with seating for everybody.

Starting from 7:30pm, you’ll have a chance to meet the other players and discuss poker, as well as meet with representatives from the MPN and our development team.

Each player will be provided with 5 drinks vouchers to use as they wish. 1 voucher gets a soft drink, a bottle of beer, or a single measure of a spirit. More expensive drinks require more vouchers. We will also be putting on some complimentary canapés for your enjoyment.

As the night wears on, feel free to explore Paceville or head to the casino to play some cash games.

Note: Don’t confuse Hugo’s Terrace with Hugo’s Lounge, which is a different bar!

Cash games and Sit ‘n’ Gos will be running every night, from 7pm or earlier.
