Filed under Featured, News

If you think of various ingredients that go together to make the perfect poker holiday, then sun (especially in January), sea, beautiful sandy beaches, a choice of swimming pools, excellent playing conditions, lots of prize money and a venue hotel so luxurious and exclusive it’s a favourite of the rich and famous, then you’d be describing the Mazagan Beach Resort in Morocco, which will once again host the MPN Poker Tour (11-14 January).

And you could win yourself a place on Team32Red and take part in what promises to be a fantastic poker festival by… simply playing as usual at 32Red, thanks to our Chasing Redbacks: Mission 2 Morocco promotion, which runs throughout November…

It’s easy-peasy, which is how promos should be – not least because it’s always good to know that we can get our hands on big prizes for little effort. In this case no extra effort is necessary. Just have fun moving around 32Red Poker, racking up Redbacks as you play Cash, Sit & Go games or multi-table tournaments, and that’s it… At the end of the month, depending on how many Redbacks you’ve collected during the promo, you’ll receive a free MPNPT ticket that could be worth a €550 Main Event seat or even a €1,500 package to Mazagan!

The package includes entry into the 6,000 MAD Main Event, entry into the 1,100 MAD Side Event, accommodation (including breakfast) for four nights at the Mazagan Beach Resort for you and a guest, €250 towards travel and expenses and a Players Welcome Party invite.

So, as you hit the tables during the dark and rainy days of November, think of the miles of perfect beach that could await you in Mazagan… make the most of your free ticket, or earn a package! Have fun…

Route 32: Highway to Morocco

Bing Crosby, Bob Hope and Dorothy Lamour might have had a great time in the 1942 film, Road to Morocco, but they didn’t go to the Mazagan Beach Resort. That’s the most luxurious venue thus far on the MPN Poker Tour, which will return to Morocco on the first stop of 2018 (11-14 January). And someone is going to win a €1,500 package at the end of November thanks to our Route 32: Highway to Morocco promotion!

Simply use a few Redbacks – which are accumulated automatically as players enjoy time at the tables (cash games, tournaments, Sit & Go games etc – whatever your favourite format, you collect Redbacks as you go) – to register for nightly (10pm GMT) Flip qualifiers, where the top eight finishers win starting chips for the Final (2 December), which boasts over €3,000 in MPNPT tickets, including a €1,500 package.

The package includes entry into the 6,000 MAD Main Event, entry into the 1,100 MAD Side Event, accommodation (including breakfast) for four nights at the Mazagan Beach Resort for you and a guest, €250 towards travel and expenses and a Players Welcome Party invite.

Note that you don’t have to actually play in the qualifiers because with the Flip format everyone is automatically all-in, every hand, until the winners remain.

Have fun on the Highway to Morocco…

Sun, sea, luxury and big money poker – that’s what awaits you at the palatial Mazagan Beach Resort, Morocco, which will host the MPN Poker Tour for a second time (18-21 January). The first edition proved that Africa is just as much an appropriate setting for poker as Europe, while another reason to try to win your way to this prestigious event is the place itself – a far cry from the clichéd image that springs to mind when people hear ‘poker’ of smoke-filled back rooms.

32Red offers an unrivaled, user-friendly, bankroll-friendly qualification set-up, with the satellite quest starting with a buy-in of only €1! You can go to Tournaments > Satellites in the Poker Lobby for a full tournament schedule to find a route that suits you best.

Meanwhile, the Route 32 and Chasing Redbacks promotions offer additional ways to get your hands on €1,500 packages and €550 Main Event seats, and a royal flush in the nightly, fun-filled €300 Guaranteed (€3 rebuy) Flush Royale tournament is worth a €1,500 package!

The package includes entry into the 6,000 MAD Main Event, entry into the 1,100 MAD Side Event, accommodation (including breakfast) for four nights at the Mazagan Beach Resort for you and a guest, €250 towards travel and expenses and a Players Welcome Party invite.

So, what are you waiting for? Start your quest, and become a proud member of Team32Red in Morocco!

32 Days of Poker… Better than Christmas

While it’s true that talk of Christmas always seems to come earlier every year, Christmas itself never does. But our 32 Days of Poker starts at the beginning of December and, by the time Santa Claus has arrived, we’ll already have given away 25 days’ worth of festive goodies.

We’ve even put together a special advent calendar in the form of a Christmas tree complete with baubles, each one representing what you can look forward to every day of the month. We start, for example, with a €250 Freeroll on the 1st December at 9pm UK time. It’s free to enter, and you’ll get a bonus of having double the standard starting chips simply by having made 25 raked hands in the seven days before the tournament.

This isn’t by any means the only freeroll during the promotion, and the prize funds go up as the month progresses. Meanwhile, there are bonus chips galore – again increasing, every Friday, to total 190! And all you have to do to collect them is log on at 32Red Poker!

We even have non-poker goodies in store for you because it’s fun to make the most of what the Poker Lobby has to offer – namely our fantastic online Casino. This is accessible directly from the Poker Lobby, and you can use your poker account to play. However, this being the festive season, we want you to enjoy some time playing casino games ‘on the house’ and, to get you started, we’re giving away free spins at some of our most popular slots games. Win a hand in a Hold’em game with pocket fours on Day 6, for instance, and we’ll reward you with 10 free spins (each worth 15 cents) on our Tomb Raider game…

Go on, click on it 🙂

Those of you who have been following the exploits of your fellow 32Red players who won their places on Team32Red at various MPN Poker Tour events around the globe (the most recent being in the very luxurious, opulent surroundings of the Mazagan Beach & Golf Resort in Morocco – see pics!) can win a €1,500 MPNPT package during the promo, with the New Year’s Special (1st January) boasting 10 packages!

We also have an additional promo ready that will run in tandem from 16th December. The theme is the ‘cash drop’ – €2 literally ‘dropped’ into someone’s account during a cash game, every five minutes for a whole three weeks, combined with qualifying tournaments for places at the Vienna 9: €32K Cash Game Adventure, a big money cash game in Vienna in January!

This is just a taste of what to expect in our 32 Days of Poker. To find out more see our schedule of daily offerings, or click on the relevant bauble on our advent calendar for further details. We hope you have a month’s worth of festive poker fun at 32Red!

Sunday isn’t a day of rest in Mazagan

Today is the final table of the Main Event and, while no Team32Red players remain in the hunt (last man standing was Declan Rice from Ireland, who finished in 31st place to win 13,000 Dirhams), it’s still been an exciting Sunday at this amazing venue.

After the very popular Go Kart racing yesterday came another special event which the winner will be invited back for more luxury poker in the sun (in the shape of a Deepstack Poker package) – and this time the challenge was to emerge victorious in a Paintball competition!

Meanwhile, Christmas came early last night for David Lappin when he won the High Roller event to the tune of 67,000 Dirhams, and Angus Dunnington managed to survive to the money in the MPNPT Mazagan Poker Cup despite a seriously depleted stack in a tournament that seemed to go on and on (and on). And there’ll be more opportunities for Team32Red today thanks to a Doubles event, where the players of each ‘team’ change over at each new level, and a Hyper Turbo Freezeout that promises to end the festival with a bang…

Day 1B update – swings, roundabouts and belly dancers

November 12, 2016 by

We all know poker is a cruel game, but it’s always worth mentioning because this truism will, inevitably, help describe the manner in which a few Team32Red players met an untimely end as Day 1B drew to a close.

The numbers were significant yesterday, with over 200 entries being more than double what we saw on Day 1A. The organisation has been as impressive as the surroundings – both inside and out. Certainly, nobody can use the venue – including the spacious, airy playing hall itself – as an excuse to add to the usual bad beat stories.

Even the dinner break provided those players who were savvy enough to avoid the mad rush to the buffet with some welcome entertainment. It’s not often during a poker tournament that a belly dancer appears and rattles off a fantastic routine – as you get stuck into a tasty stew – within a couple of metres of your table! This happened to Angus Dunnington who, suitably inspired, returned to the tournament after earlier being down to 4K, to be all-in heads-up with QQ v JJ… Alas the first card to appear was a dreaded J but, as we said at the beginning: poker is indeed a cruel game.

Meanwhile, a quick update as a long Day 1B ended and Day 2 begins (* Team32Red):

Team32Red in Morocco… It’s Day 1a

Whoever thought poker was for middle aged men in dark, smoke-filled rooms hasn’t qualified for live events at 32Red. Here’s the view our Team32Red players will wake up to for the next few days – the luxurious surroundings of the Mazagan Beach Resort, set behind a few miles of private beach a little south of Casablanca.

This promises to be one of those festivals where the poker itself feels almost like a distraction which, of course, is a good thing. Among the numerous activities on offer are horseback riding on the beach to the backdrop of the amazing Atlantic Ocean, go-karting or – at the other extreme – spa facilities…

Someone is going to be inspired by the amazing conditions and emerge the winner of the €125,000 Main Event, and we’ll keep you posted with updates – poker and otherwise – throughout. Many of our players won their €1,500 MPN Poker Tour package for the price of a beer; some for free – so while you’re keeping up with the action, remember to also keep an eye on our satellites for future festivals.
