888poker is introducing a brand-new online poker series for low-to-mid-stakes tournament players — The Festival Online.

The inaugural edition of The Festival Online is scheduled to launch on July 7 with an exciting $1 Kickoff event that will serve as one of the feeders into the Main Event of the series.

Overall, 888poker’s The Festival Online is scheduled to give away at least $750,000 in prizes with tournament buy-ins ranging from $22 for some of the smaller events to $525 for the High Roller tournament.

The series will run through July, with the last event taking place on August 1, along with the final table of the $215 Main Event.

The Festival Online Schedule Revealed

888poker has revealed the completed schedule for the upcoming Festival Online and includes exciting and appealing events for all sorts of tournament poker players.

On Sunday, July 10, 88poker will host a $109 Opening Event with a $100k guaranteed prize pool, a $525 High Roller, and a $109 PLO tournament. These events will generate a lot of bustle on the opening day of The Festival Online and set the tone for the rest of the month.

Unlike some other online poker series that run events daily, The Festival Online will not host tournaments every day of the month.

The first week of the series will have five separate tournaments played out on July 12 and 14 before some major excitement on Sunday, July 17. The 17th is reserved for the $525 PKO High Roller with a $40k guarantee and yet another feeder into the Main Event.

The action will continue at the same pace with another $100k tournament hosted on Thursday, July 21. This event will be an 8-max event with a $109 buy-in.

Another High Roller event will take place on Sunday, July 24, and will be the $525 8-max tournament with a $40k guarantee.

The Main Event kicks off on July 31 and will have a $150k guaranteed prize pool and a $215 buy-in. Another $525 event with a $50k prize pool will begin that same day for the high rollers looking for more action.

The $109 Afterparty will close out The Festival Online, along with the Main Event’s final table, which will be live-streamed on the 888pokerTV Twitch channel on August 1.
