888poker Announce Destinations for its 2017 Live Events
888poker has revealed the destinations it will take its 888Live Festivals and 888Live Local events to for the remainder of 2017.
The first event since the announcement is at Aspers Casino in London and is one of 888poker’s popular ‘local’ events, before the 888poker team heads to Barcelona for the 888Live Festival where more than €700,000 is guaranteed to be won.
Aspers Casino in London hosts three other 888Live Local events during 2017, with these taking place in May, July and November. The casino will also welcome hundreds of budding poker players through its doors in October for an 888Live Festival.
The last time 888poker was in London for one of its value-packed festivals, Ka Him Li and Shah Raza made a deal heads up in the Main Event and walked away with £45,300 and £40,000, respectively.

Another 888Live Festival is set for Sao Paulo, the most populous city in Brazil. It is a festival that is sure to attract masses of poker players, including the members of Team888 Brazil, Bruno Politano, Nicolau Villa-Lobos and Bruno Kawauti.
“The atmosphere in 888Live events is amazing," said Politano to 888poker Magazine. "You can feel that the company is putting the players first, giving them the chance to play with our amazing 888team. I absolutely love the 888Live events in Brazil and will love even more the upcoming in Barcelona!”
Announced alongside the schedule for the 888Live events for 2017 was the new travel partnership with MainEventTravel, a company owned by poker player Fraser MacIntyre.
888poker and MainEventTravel have created a system that allows package winners to maximize the value from their packages by choosing the exact days of their stay, their hotels and more.
“We are absolutely thrilled to be working with 888Live for the Make It Big Festival in Barcelona – and proud to be launching a brand new online system for 888Live’s prize package winners," MacIntyre said. MacIntyre is the managing director of MainEventTravel. "By putting complete control into the hands of the player, we can ensure that they get the very best out of their visit to Barcelona.”
