The larger than life MonsterJam Poker Tour is heading to the Eastern Cape. Following exciting rounds at Carnival City in Gauteng and Sun City in the North West, the national poker tournament will be unleashed at Sun International’s The Boardwalk from 17 to 22 July 2018.
The MonsterJam Poker Tour invites both professional and amateur players to pit their skills in a nationwide series and stand the chance to win substantial cash prizes. Registration for The Boardwalk’s leg of the MonsterJam Poker Tour is now open. Registered players can raise their stack at various events over the course of six days, culminating on 22 July 2018 with the final table of the Main Event, and the tournament series bringing in an estimated prize pool of over R5-million. Some 225 individual poker fans registered to be part of the Sun City leg of the MonsterJam Poker Tour, with the North West tournament series generating a prize pool of over R11-million over the course of 10 days.
The Monster Jam Poker Tour will head to more Sun International casinos during the course of the year. These include GrandWest (Cape Town), the Wild Coast Sun (Eastern Cape), Sibaya (KwaZulu-Natal) and Time Square South Africa (Gauteng). Each tour stop will feature a number of competitions and events, to suit a wide range of players.
Sun International’s Group Manager: Gaming Product, Maartin Olckers says: “The nationwide Monster Jam Poker Tour is buoyed by the outrageously successful Monster Jam tournament which took place at Sun City in 2015. Taking the tour nationwide is the natural evolution for this exciting tournament.
“The structures of the MonsterJam Poker Tour are inclusive and cater to players of diverse ability, from novices to those keen to take their poker sporting ability to the next level in a credible, national competition. With the title Monster Jam Poker Tour Player of the Year and a trip overseas at stake, we expect some nail biting competition in Port Elizabeth as we saw in Gauteng and the North West.”
All winning players for each event at every regional tournament will be added to a leader board and ranking system, with the ultimate winner at the end of the year taking the top accolade of Monster Jam Poker Tour Player of the Year and winning a trip to play poker internationally.
