Introducing the European Poker League
Want to test yourself in a regular Play Money league? If you live in Europe you’re invited to take part in the European Poker League (EPL): the weekly contest where the aim is to earn as many points as you can by competing against other players from around the continent.
If you’re up to the challenge, play our daily European Poker League tournament at 15:15 ET (21:15 CET). The tournament has a buy-in of 50,000 Play Money chips, and you can play as many as you like each week to win points and rise up the Leader Board. There are 25M PM chips on offer each week, paid out to the top 100 players.
Keep an eye on Weekly Leader Board to keep track of how you’re doing.
How to take part
To sign up and start earning Leader Board points, all you need to do is play the daily tournament at 15:15 ET (21:15 CET), which can be found under the Tournaments tab in the Main Lobby - ensure the Play Money button is selected, then search for ‘EPL’ in the ‘Find a tournament’ filter.
