PokerStars celebrates 10 years on Isle of Man

The U.K. and Ireland’s biggest poker tour returns to Douglas, Isle of Man this Sept. 30 - Oct. 4, 2015 announced, an Amaya Inc. brand. The festival will kick off with a free-to-view 3-D projection and lighting spectacular at 8 p.m. on Wednesday,
Sept. 30, that has been commissioned to celebrate 10 years on the Island.

The UKIPT Isle of Man festival takes place at the Villa Marina and consists of 13 tournaments with the main focus on the £440 No-Limit Hold’em Main Event, which starts on Oct. 1. This year’s tournament will attract poker players from all across Europe and even further afield, as well as well-known members of Team PokerStars Pro and many local players. For the second year running, the festival will overlap with the PokerStars Isle of Man International Chess Tournament demonstrating the synergies of the two mind sports.

This is the third time PokerStars has brought the UKIPT live poker festival and hundreds of players to its hometown, but this time it’s extra special as it coincides with the PokerStars 10th anniversary on the Island, which the Company is planning on celebrating during this year’s festival.

PokerStars and the Isle of Man - PokerStars want to say thank you to the local community for 10 fantastic years on the Island. To show how proud and grateful PokerStars is to be part of the community, there will be 3-D projection and lighting spectacular shows in the Villa Marina gardens, with the theme of celebrating the Isle of Man as a nation. The shows, which will run for around five minutes and will be repeated each night of the upcoming U.K. & Ireland Poker Tour Isle of Man, will be open to the public for free.

PokerStars Interim CEO Michael Hazel, said, “PokerStars have had a great 10 years on the Island. We are extremely proud to be part of the local community and are delighted they can share in our celebrations. Here’s to continuing to work together into the future.”
