PokerStars announced new regional events in Europe and more chances to win a Platinum Pass. The PokerStars Festival Marbella will run from June 4-10 on Spain's Costa del Sol, and the Casino Barriere in Lille will host PokerStars Festival Lille from July 16-22. Also, new MEGASTACK events were announced in Dublin and London for next month, in addition to Gujan-Mestras in the south of France later this summer. Players in these events will also have a chance to win a Platinum Pass to the 2019 PSPC in the Bahamas, with six at stake in Lille.


PokerStars expanded their MEGASTACK and PokerStars Festival series. PokerStars added two new stops on their Festival tour with events in France and Spain. PokerStars added a trio of MEGASTACK events to Ireland, the U.K., and France. These added stops also feature more opportunities to win a coveted Platinum Pass to the 2019 PokerStars Players No Limit Championship at the PCA in the Bahamas. The winners of select events will win a Platinum Pass. Lots of local money at stake here, in additional to multiple chances to win an added trip to the Bahamas for the inaugural PSPC. No less than six Platinum Passes will be awarded at the PokerStars Festival Lille, which might be your best chance to win a PSPC package.

PokerStars added a trio of events to their MEGSTACK series. These MEGASTACKS feature a buy-in of only €170 Main Event. The new locales are Dublin, London, and Gujan-Mestras in Southwest France.

The €50K Guaranteed MEGASTACK Dublin kicks off next month at the Regency in Dublin, Ireland on April 19 and runs to the 22nd.

The MEGASTACK London will be final weekend in April at the one and only Hippodrome Casino. The event has a £40K Guarantee and the winner of the Main Event will earn a Platinum Pass.

Also, PokerStars added a venue in the south of France for the MEGASTACK series. Gujan-Mestras will host a MEGASTACK starting June 27 and running thru the first of July. PokerStars HQ described Gujan-Mestras as "a magical place where incredible vistas and a unique atmosphere combine to create a little piece of paradise situated on the Bay of Arcachon on France's Atlantic coast."

If you were looking for any ideas for a summer vacation or holiday, then you should consider busting local donks in Lille and Marbella. PokerStars added two unique locales in Europe to their Festival series. Say hello to the PokerStars Festival Marbella and the PokerStars Festival Lille.

Ignacio Lopez de Maturana binked the PokerStars Festival Marbella Main Event for a €152K score. Can he win it again? This year's Festival Marbella will commence on June 4 and run for a week. Who wouldn't want to be on Spain's eloquent Costa del Sol at that time of year?

France is lovely in the early summer and I heard that the Casino Barriere is visually stunning. The crown jewel of Lille, the Barrierre, will host the upcoming PokerStars Festival Lille. The cards will go in the air on July 16 and run until the 22nd. No less than six Platinum Passes are up for grabs in Lille. Yep, that's six chances to win the $30K package to the Bahamas.

PokerStars is running satellites as we speak to the PokerStars Festival Marbella. The Lille sats will run sometime in the future. For now, set your sights on a sat to Marbella!
