Save the Dates! Battle of Malta Returns May 31 to June 6 Mark your calendars as the iconic Battle of Malta will return to the luxurious Casino Malta and the adjoining five-star InterContinental Malta on May 31 to June 6. The highlight of the Spring edition of the Battle of Malta is, of course, the Battle of Malta Main Event, which boasts a tasty €500,000 guarantee for just a €600 (€530 + €70) buy-in. The festival promises to deliver something for everyone with plenty of side events alongside the Main Event and cash games running around the clock. This combined with the perfect weather Malta is well-known for in the Spring alongside the many unique outdoor attractions the island has to offer, provides the perfect poker holiday as many of our players can attest to. Last year the Battle of Malta had some catching up to do with the festivals entirely moved to an online format in 2020 and 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic and hosted two festivals instead of one in the Spring and Autumn for the first time. After the success of both festivals, many players asked if the Battle of Malta could be hosted twice again this year and we delivered with another Battle of Malta planned later in the year. “We were thrilled about the enthusiasm by the players of hosting two Battle of Malta festivals last year,” said Casino Malta Country Manager Slawomir Switalski. “We listened to players from around the world that shared their cravings for a second festival this Spring after last year’s success. Players now visit our majestic Mediterranean island twice a year with the excitement of competing for a share of at least €500,000 guaranteed.” The 2022 Battle of Malta Spring Edition Main Event’s €500,000 guarantee was demolished last year with 2,592 entries creating a massive €1,244,160 prize pool. Italy’s Guiseppe Rosa etched his name into the Battle of Malta record books after defeating Stan van Dijk heads-up to win the €200,340 top prize. The Battle of Malta is designed for low to mid-stakes poker and grew into one of the biggest stand-alone live poker events in the world since its inception in 2012. Keep your eyes peeled on our website and social media channels as the full schedule for the 2022 Battle of Malta Spring edition will be published shortly. We will also announce in the coming weeks about how to qualify, special accommodation deals, and more in the coming weeks. But for now, book your flights and we look forward to seeing you in Malta this Spring. Who knows, maybe you can be the next Battle of Malta champion!
