EPT Sanremo returns to its traditional Spring-time slot for Season 10 and becomes the seventh stop on the schedule. The stunning Casino Sanremo will again welcome the best players from Europe and beyond to what is always a well-attended event. The popular €5,000 + 300 Main Event will be taking place April 10-16, 2014, and the full Festival runs April 6-16.
Sanremo always attracts a huge crowd and Season 9 was no exception. French pro Ludovic Lacay bested a 797-strong field to take the title and giant first prize of €744,910. He beat Canada’s Jason Lavallee heads-up... securing another EPT title for France.
BUY-INS - Players can wire any amount of money as a deposit to the casino and withdraw the full amount in casino chips. Players can wire money specifically for registering into the Main Event and for any Side Events. Players may also use Credit Cards and Travel Cheques for ANY limit amounts. We strongly recommend the use of these payment methods (wire for deposit, wire for direct registration, credit cards, travel cheques) to streamline the registration process. Players who wish to use cash to buy into events will be subject to Italian Financial Regulations and additional paperwork will be required. We will have extra personnel on hand on to facilitate this process.
For cash buy-ins of up to €999, players can use cash at the casino cage. However, for buy-ins of €1,000+, players who want to buy in with cash will be subject to Italian Financial Regulations and need to visit the bank.
To make this as easy as possible, the casino has set up special arrangements with Banco Di San Giorgio Spa, Via Roma 60 – about 400m/four minutes walk from the casino. There will be three dedicated cashiers handling EPT transactions at the bank, and we will also have lots of event staff on hand to help, as well as free transport. Players only need to visit once, as long as they deposit enough to cover all their buy-ins during the Festival. The bank opening hours are 09:00 to 16:00 Monday-Saturday.
When making your bank deposit, you will need to give your full name, date of birth and home address. The bank will then wire the deposit money direct to the casino and give you a receipt enabling you to get casino chips and/or complete your buy-in(s).
PAYOUTS - Due to Italian Financial Regulations, the maximum cash payments allowed to each individual player will be €999 per day. This applies to both tournaments winnings and cash game winnings. All additional monies may only be wired to your bank account. Please bring all relevant bank details with you. This includes:
Sort Code (if applicable)
