This year’s Battle of Malta is taking place in a brand new venue – the spacious Eden Arena at the InterContinental Hotel – from October 25-30. The Main Event already looks set to break all records with thousands of players aiming to take part.
Casino Malta Operations Manager Diane Fenech said: “We have had a great turnout for the Casino Malta satellites so far and look forward to welcoming even more local players and visitors to these final satellites. These satellites offer a fantastic opportunity to qualify for this year’s Battle of Malta from as little as €35.”
