| By iGB Freelance
Playtech announces the completion of its ipoker tournament series, Elite Series Winter Edition, which has been the largest event ever held on the ipoker network, significantly surpassing the previous winter series from last year.

Held from 1 December 2023 to 16 January 2024, this year’s event significantly surpassed the €7,000,000 guaranteed target, collecting close to €10,000,000 in total prize pool and delivering more than 800 tournaments in multiple formats. The latest Elite Series Winter Edition comprised daily tournaments with buy-ins ranging from €3 to €1,000 and a total of 93 events with a €20,000 or higher GTD. The event also saw the introduction of the new mystery bounty alongside the regular tournament setups.

The seven multi-stage mystery bounty events hosted during the series stand out as a remarkable success, contributing a substantial €650,000 to the overall series guarantees. Notably, these events witnessed the largest single-entry count in ipoker history and marked the highest mystery bounty awarded on the ipoker network to date.

Marat Koss, VP of interactive gaming at Playtech, comments: “We are thrilled with the results delivered in our latest ipoker Elite Series Winter Edition, which was the largest and most successful series in ipoker network history; surpassing the guaranteed prizes in multiple tournaments across the series. Engaging a global audience, our tournament series saw participation from over 33,000 players representing 92 countries. This event signifies a milestone in our ongoing strategic investments towards the expansion of tournament series on the ipoker networks. The success of the series is a testament to the expertise of our team and the unwavering support from our valued partners.”

Recently, the ipoker network launched online qualifiers to the Irish Open 2024, offering over 100 guaranteed entries to the longest running and most prestigious live events in Europe. Online satellites started on 8 January 2024 and will run until March, offering players a chance to enter the €1,000,000 GTD Irish Open main event.

Looking ahead, the ipoker network will host the €5,500,000 GTD Bounty Hunter Series XL, following on from the great success of the Elite Series Winter Edition. Scheduled to take place from 1 March to 1 April 2024, the Bounty Hunter Series XL promises to be the largest knockout series ever hosted on the ipoker network, further solidifying its position as a premier online poker destination within the industry.
