Russia’s Casino Sochi and Resort recently signed a four-year deal with partypoker LIVE to see the top poker brand be their primary partner for live poker gaming. The casino has only been open for little over a year, but quickly became a hot spot for poker tournament games in Eastern Europe. Huge events were hosted last year at the casino, including LIVE MILLIONS by partypoker. Now, party will be the top sponsor for the casino’s live poker tournament events for the next four years, with the new partnership deal.
The new partnership will officially begin in May when the WSOPC Russia debuts. The circuit stop will mark the first time the tour has hosted events in Russia, with the schedule set for May 13th to the 29th. Prize pool guarantees total $5m.
Additional party events for the Sochi casino include the $10m guaranteed partypoker MILLIONS Russia, set for August 4th to the 12th. In October, the casino will be hosting the $5m guarantee Eurasia Poker Tour as well as the Russian Poker Championships.
The new deal will see partypoker LIVE providing a minimum of eight events at the casino each year. With the partypoker LIVE Festivals taking place in Sochi, there will be at least one tournament option that will be branded with the name of the casino and sponsored by partypoker LIVE.
Additional events that are part of the deal include the new MILLIONS Snowfest, Sochi Poker Festival Summer and the Sochi Poker Festival Autumn. Players will find the full schedule of events associated with the new partnership deal between the casino and party by visiting the partypoker Blog.
