When people think of Las Vegas in the summer, you can bet that most of their thoughts revolve around the World Series of Poker. While that may be the centre of attention for many, there are plenty of other poker series and festivals taking place that people should look at.
You’ve got the 2022 MSPT Venetian and 2022 BetMGM Poker Championship, which are currently underway, as well as the upcoming $1,000,000 GTD PokerNews Cup, which takes place at the Golden Nugget from June 24-28.
But one series you may have missed is the second annual Mixed Game Festival, which runs from June 12-16 at Resorts World, Las Vegas.
The festival, which is sponsored by PokerStars, offers “low stakes cash games catering to lovers of all poker variants, from weekend warriors to home game hotshots, and even to grinders and pros just looking to take a bit of a relaxing break from the major tournament series happening around the city,” said festival founder Robbie Strazynski.
Get Your Hands on a Road to PSPC Event Ticket
At the first Mixed Game Festival, 2004 WSOP Main Event Champion Greg Raymer won himself PokerStars Platinum Pass after he took down the festival’s $200 H.O.R.S.E tournament.
There is another PSPC-related grand prize at this year’s Mixed Game Festival as well. One lucky player will be randomly selected to be the recipient of a PokerStars Live Event Package. The package includes a €400 buy-in, flights and hotel for a European Road to PSPC event.
All you need to do to be in with a shot at winning is to just simply play at the Mixed Game Festival. As a bonus to those who put in the most volume, for every hour you play you’ll receive an additional entry into the random drawing, which takes place on Thursday evening June 16.
What Else is on the Table?
The chance to win a Road to PSPC event ticket should not be the only reason for you to attend the Mixed Game Festival as there is plenty happening throughout its duration.
Famous faces were also in attendance within the first hour of the Mixed Game Festival opening, with Linda Johnson and Jan Fisher hopping into the mix.
On top of all that, there are a plethora of giveaways as the festival rolls on which include:
- Multiple $100 gift vouchers from the PokerStars Store
- A variety of apparel from PokerGO
- Gift bags from BBO Poker Tables
- Limited edition T-shirts from RunGoodGear
- 2-deck set ups from Faded Spade Playing Cards
