PokerStars is proud to support a brand new poker festival for women that will heat things up during London’s chilly winter season.

The Women’s Winter Festival takes place at London’s iconic Hippodrome Casino from November 21-24, 2024, headlined by a £400 buy-in Main Event boasting £100,000 in guaranteed prizes before a single registration.

Mark your calendars! You won’t want to miss this unforgettable experience.

The festival was announced at a special PokerStars Ladies Night event during the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas. Spearheading the festival is PokerStars ambassador Kerryjane Craigie, underscoring her commitment to championing women’s participation in poker.

There will also be plenty of side events offering participants a thrilling and competitive environment, not to mention tons of off-the-table fun.

One such side event is the unique 50/50 male and female event, ensuring there’s something for everyone to get involved.

To make the festival accessible to all, there will be multiple qualification routes and plenty of satellites available, providing various pathways to join in on the action.

Join us for an exceptional festival that celebrates women in poker and offers a unique blend of events catering to all skill levels and interests.

Stay tuned as more details will be unveiled in the coming weeks.


PokerStars is thrilled to announce the appointment of Kerryjane Craigie as an Ambassador for Women in Poker. A respected figure in the poker community, Craigie brings extensive experience and a passion for promoting diversity and inclusion within the game.

As Director of Poker at the Hippodrome in London, Craigie has worked tirelessly to make her poker room a safe and inviting space. But her work extends beyond the Hippodrome’s walls, plus she’s a great poker player in her own right.

“I am delighted and honoured to be given the opportunity to promote and support women in poker as a PokerStars ambassador,” said Craigie. “I truly believe that PokerStars’ mindset and commitment to making a difference are perfectly aligned with today’s environment.”

She continued: “Launching an active program for Women in Poker with initiatives to encourage, support, and promote this game we all love is incredibly exciting. There are challenging moments at a poker table when someone in a minority, not just gender, feels uncomfortable. It’s time to make that a thing of the past, and we can all make a conscious change. I’m beyond thrilled to be a part of it and ready to get started!”
