The organizers have set aside $25 million in prize money which will be awarded to winners over the course of the next few weeks.
Battle of Malta on GGPoker Highlights
One of the most outstanding features of the Battle of Malta Online is that it will be taking place at a time when the final of the Global MILLION$ European Cup will be going on.

The weekend after the European Cup action, poker players will be facing the final stage of the Siege of Malta. A bounty tournament game, interested players will only need to register with only €105 for a guarantee of €1,000,000.

These include the Bounty tournaments, 6-Max and Omaha. The 18 events on the schedules have diverse entry costs and guarantees, which accommodates players with different preferences.
Reaching for the Malta Action
Even though the organizers have announced the ticket values for the various events that will be held in Malta, there are still those who find the buy-is too expensive for them. This happens all the time and tournament organizers have various approaches to attract more players. For GGPoker, the choice strategy is to offer players an opportunity to win entry packages to the live event through the online Battle of Malta.
Part of the road to Malta plan also involves the running of several satellites which are offered as a guarantee to dishing away a total of 75 packages for the Battle of Malta coming up in a few months time. In addition to that, GGPoker will be giving out 25 packages to lucky players who wish to participate in the Battle of Malta via the online series’ leader board.
