The World Poker Tour (WPT) in conjunction with Chilipoker have finalised an exclusive partnership to see the first ever WPT event to be held in Africa where we will see the WPT Marrakech launch next October!
Morocco’s famous Casino de Marrakech has been the cornerstone of gambling since 1952 and currently is the organiser of the Marrakech Poker Open. Boasting a five-star rating the Casino de Marrakech is now being rewarded with the hosting rights to the first WPT event to be held on African soil.
Marrakech is the leading tourist town in Morocco, and with its close proximity to Europe, abundance of accommodation and status of a glamorous destination it made it an ideal location to attract the best players from around the world. Consequently online site Chilipoker took advantage of the city’s draw to organise additional preliminary events include a Ladies tournament.
Chilipoker CEO Alexandre Dreyfus commented, “Chilipoker is delighted to be associated with a world-renowned brand like the World Poker Tour in the creation of this unique and attractive event.” While Chilipoker wasn’t an obvious choice for partnership, WPT Steve Lipscomb was delighted to announce the news, “We’re very glad to be partnering with our fiends at Chilipoker – a poker room that is steadily growing in importance on the international scene – to offer WPT tournaments in Morocco.”
