Home / Poker / Mega Satellites offer last chance to win packages for EPT and Eureka Prague

At least 48 players will win packages to Prague through these Mega Satellites.


December is rapidly approaching, and that means it’s almost time for one of the most beloved European Poker Tour stops: EPT Prague 2023.

If by this point you haven’t managed to win a package that will whisk you away to the Czechia capital, then you might have resigned yourself to staying at home, putting your feet up, and watching the action as the PokerStars live streams are beamed into your home.

Unresign yourself right now.

It’s time to get yourself back in the qualifying game because PokerStars has now added two days of Mega Satellites that are going to see at least 48 more players head to poker’s Winter Wonderland.

On both Sunday 26th November and Sunday 3rd December two Mega Satellites will be running – one awarding a minimum of 12 EPT Prague Main Event packages, and the other offering at least 12 Eureka Main Event packages. 

The EPT Mega Satellites have a €530 buy-in, while the Eureka Mega Satellites cost €162 to enter. 

But you needn’t buy in directly as lower buy-in qualifiers to the Mega Satellites will be running every day on PokerStars, starting from as little as €1.10.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU WIN A PACKAGE?

PokerStars prides itself on providing the most player-friendly poker experience. That’s whether you’re playing strictly online or if you like to play your poker face-to-face.

And one area that PokerStars truly excels is the transition between the two.

For close to two decades, players have been migrating from the online tables to live events after winning an online EPT satellite. We have all heard the numerous stories about EPT satellite qualifiers striking it rich after booking their seat for peanuts.

But before you start dreaming about hoisting a trophy aloft, you’ll probably want to know exactly what happens when you win an EPT satellite.

Here’s what happens just after you qualify to play on the European Poker Tour (EPT)
