PokerStars Sends Site Members to India for the 2012 Casino Royale Cup

Winning entry to a live poker event is incentive enough for most players to compete in their favourite sites’ promotions, but PokerStars is looking to do one better by coupling free tournament entry with a trip abroad. The Casino Royale Cup, scheduled to take place toward the end of June, will be held in Goa, India and PokerStars is looking to send the winners of its current promotion abroad to take part.

Members of PokerStars will be able to compete in satellite tournaments that reward the most talented competitors with a fantastic prize package. These satellites will see players duking it out for a shot at taking home a reward that includes buy-in to the Casino Royale Cup’s $1,000 Main Event, reduced rates at Goa, India’s Goa Marriott Resort and Spa (situated on Miramar Beach) and more. Winners will play alongside members of Team PokerStars Pro, including Bryan Huang (the 2010 Asia Player of the Year) who has already confirmed his attendance.

Danny McDonagh, PokerStars’ Asia-Pacific Live Operations Director, released a statement detailing “the rise [of poker] in India” and his company’s delight in “[supporting] this fantastic event in Goa.” The Casino Royale Cup is scheduled to run from 21st to 24th June and will take place on a cruise ship, remodeled to host the luxurious Casino Royale. The Cup’s Main Event will run for three days.
