The Classic – €500,000 Guaranteed on the MPN. The MPN announces the return of The Classic online poker tournament series this January. The series is back following its successful €350,000 guaranteed debut in 2017. This time €500,000 is guaranteed, along with a once in a lifetime trip to Monaco for the Classic Champion.
The Classic has two parts: The Mini Classic which will run from 28 January – 11 February, offering players €45,000 in guarantees for buy-ins as low as €0.50. Plus, The Classic Main Events will run from 11 – 25 February, offering a further €450,000 in guarantees.
“At the MPN we are committed to growing our tournament offering throughout 2018, and the expansion of The Classic series is a key part of that’ said Alex Scott, Head of Product (Network Games) at Microgaming. “2018 promises to be an exciting year for MPN players, as we continue to create thrilling experiences both on and off the felt.”
All players who final table a main event in The Classic will qualify for The Classic Millionaire Freeroll, where the winner will win a once in a lifetime trip to Monaco for two. They will fly to Nice where a helicopter will pick them up and shuttle them to Monaco. There they’ll stay in the 5 Star Fairmont Hotel, perfectly placed to experience the city. Outside the hotel the next day will be a choice of a Lamborghini or Ferrari, ready to take a trip around the course of the world-famous Monaco Grand Prix. Stepping into the slow lane that evening, there is entrance to the casino and €1,000 to spend, capped off with dinner at Le Monde de Joel Robuchon, arguably the best restaurant in the city.
For players who are looking to qualify on the cheap, the MPN is also running the Premium Leagues promotion. Coinciding with the Mini Classic events, this series of tournament leaderboards will be giving away €15,000 in tickets to The Classic Main Events. Players who bubbled events in the series can also benefit from the Bubble Bursters Freerolls with an additional €3,500 worth of value.
