Win Your Ticket to Madrid
While the main 888poker LIVE Madrid qualifier has already played out and given out a €2,000 package to the event, there is still a chance to book your ticket to Madrid, and you won’t even have to pay for it.
On November 5 and 6, at 8 PM, 888poker is throwing two freeroll satellites, each of which will award three €2,000 packages.
The only condition to take part in these freerolls is that you make a real money deposit in the time leading up to the tournaments.
