Reading Time: 4 minutes


It’s been a long time coming, but Romanian poker enthusiasts are finally being given the opportunity to prove their skills as 888poker brings a four-stage live poker tournament to the country for the first time. In collaboration with PokerFest Romania, 888 is inviting the bravest, most fearless Texas Hold’em fanatics to join them in Iași, Timișoara, Cluj, and Bucharest in a quest to crown Romania’s first National Poker Champion.

Think you have what it takes to get involved? Competition is sure to be tough, and what better way to prepare yourself for the live games than to hone your online poker skills at, and perhaps even win yourself a cut-price ticket to one of the four main events? The first round in Iași is just a few weeks away!

Round One – Iași

The first stage of the tournament will take place in the North-Eastern city of Iași, a university city near the border with Moldova that is famous for the enormous St.Paraschiva Metropolitan Cathedral. This 19th-century Ordhodox Church is built in the Italian Renaissance style and should definitely have a spot on your sightseeing itinerary if you intend on visiting Iași for the Poker Championships.

Hotels in Iași are the perfect place to enjoy a certified five-star experience at amazing prices, including the Pleiada Boutique Hotel & Spa which boasts its own pool, free parking, and free Wi-Fi for less than €80 per night. The nearby Luxury Italian Style Terrace Suites offer similar amenities with the addition of a relaxing jacuzzi pool for just €115 per room per night.

Getting back to the poker, all four location cities including Iași will feature a €330 main event, plus numerous side events and non-stop cash tables for those who suffer an unfortunate early exit but still want to enjoy the rest of their trip at the poker tables. Two additional main games will include a high roller special and a mystery bounty tournament.

Win Your Way to Iași Online!

Daily satellites have already begun on May 18th, with a free sub-satellite beginning at 20:30 each day. There freeroll tournaments are a great way to bag a free ticket to the main satellite which begins at 23:30 each day at a normal cost of $33 but expect the fields to be enormous and with only three hours of play, you’ll be relying as much on luck as skill to bag yourself a satellite ticket.

For just $3.30 you can opt to play in a much smaller field but expect the blinds to level up quick as these games begin at 22:30 each day – just one hour before the main satellite. There are two main even tickets up for grabs each day, with each winner able to choose which city they would like to play in; however. no cash equivalent is available and the winning tickets are non-transferrable.

Round Two – Timișoara

The second stage of the Romanian National Poker Championships will be held over 400km away in the Western city Timișoara¸ famous for its Secessionist architecture. It’s central Piata Victoriei Square is surrounded by Baroque buildings and the Metropolitan Orthodox Cathedral. Sightseers won’t want to miss the Memorial Museum of the 1989 Revolution.

The best hotels in Timișoara tend to be a little pricier than those in Iași, but some may speculate that they are worth the extra expense – the five-star Hotel Tresor Le Palais has a 4.7 rating out of 1,200 reviews and features a pool, spa, free parking and Wi-Fi facilities, and a complimentary concierge service for all guests. If you intend on staying for the whole week, expect a bill north of €1,000. The nearby Del Corso is a four-star alternative with an award-winning restaurant, sauna, and gym, and could provide an attractive alternative for the value-conscious traveler.

The Gentleman’s Poker Club Timisoara will play host to this leg of the tour, with daily satellites running at every day between now and the start of proceedings on July 4th.

Round Three – Cluj Napoca

For our third week of live poker, 888 and PokerFest Romania will be journeying to the northwestern city of Clug-Napoca, the capital of the Transylvanian region and home to some of the most vibrant nightlife in the country. This could be the spot to pick for the younger crowd – assuming you aren’t attracted to the full-on experience of the capital of Bucharest! Countless landmarks survive hire from the days of both Saxon and Hungarian rule, and you’ll have no shortage of sights to see if you choose to make this your Romanian Poker Championship destination.

Competition is fierce between the hotels in this area, and you can even bag yourself a room at the five-star Grand Hotel Italia for under €100 per night. The DoubleTree by Hilton is only slightly more expensive, whilst the Hampton Hotel and Hotel Paradis make great four-star options for as low as €60.

Round Four – Bucharest

The well-known PokerRoom Bucharest marks the final stop on the tour, where the champion will finally be decided. Players will amass points for their performances in each of the prior main events, and the points leader at the end of the Bucharest leg of the Championships will be crowned the Romanian Poker National Champion as well as receiving no less than THREE 888pokerLIVE packages for the numerous international live poker stops organized by 888poker in 2023 – giving them the ultimate opportunity to show off their skills on the world stage.

As you would expect for a capital city, hotel prices are likely to be expensive here in Bucharest, but if you have as the tournament progresses you may find that the toughest competitors will attend multiplie cities to accumulate as many points as possible, and even a win at an earlier main event may not be enough to secure world champion status – as such, you’ll want to keep your eyes firmly on the leaderboards as the tournament progresses, especially if you have won one of the earlier three rounds.

Our Personal Invite to You

Come join us every month for a full week of live poker – every city will feature an attractive main event, numerous side events, and as much high-octane Hold’em as you can handle. Do YOU have what it takes to be crowned the national poker champion of Romania? Come and show us what you’ve got!

Embark on a Babylonian journey in Law of Gilgamesh by Elysium Studios



Reading Time: 2 minutes

Having already raised the bar in terms of what players can expect from an online casino game, this month Elysium Studios – Driven by Swintt are back with an almighty bang for what promises to be one of their most ambitious slot adventures to date in Law of Gilgamesh.

Taking players on a majestic journey through ancient Mesopotamia, Law of Gilgamesh is an exciting cluster pays slot that boasts cascading reels and maximum wins of up to 10,188.50 x the bet. Unique symbols to appear in the game include relics from the Sumerian kingdom like stone lions, rams and bulls plus the goddess Ishtar, the warrior Enkidu and the fabled king Gilgamesh himself.

Each of these last three legendary figures has the power to rain down special modifiers on the reels if enough matching symbols are collected to trigger their unique ability. Gilgamesh will add wilds to random reel positions, Enkidu will slash and remove a huge “X” of symbols and Ishtar will destroy all low value symbols and replace them with high value ones, each starting a new re-spin.

Should players be fortunate enough to land three or more free spins icons, not only will they receive a minimum of 7 Free Spins, but each spin will also begin with the one of those aforementioned abilities activated. On top of that, if they trigger another power in the same spin, their multiplier will increase by one and they can also land extra free spins to prolong the feature.

Equally as epic, if players can successfully collect three or more scatter symbols during the base game, they’ll be given the opportunity to climb the awe-inspiring Tower of Babel in the Tower Bonus. Here they’ll be prompted to select a door to reveal either a prize multiplier or an arrow that’ll move them one floor higher, with bigger and better rewards available the further they climb!

David Mann, Chief Executive Officer at Swintt, said: “Make no mistake about it, Law of Gilgamesh is a hugely ambitious entry in the Swintt’s Elysium Studios catalogue. Featuring breath-taking visuals, engaging features and a cascading reels mechanic that’ll keep players coming back for more, the game really will be an epic addition to any operator’s line-up.”
