Massive Value Awaits Mini Monte Carlo Main Event Players
The Mini EPT Monte Carlo series concludes on May 6 with the main event. Costing $5.50 to enter but boasting a prize pool of at least $40,000, the Mini EPT Main Event would be exceptional value in its own right. However, PokerStars is juicing up the pot by adding a whole host of SCOOP tickets to the prize pool and granting the eventual champion a package to the upcoming EPT Barcelona Main Event!
Take down the Mini Monte Carlo Main Event online at PokerStars to receive the following €10,200 package:

Those prizes range from $5.50 SCOOP tickets, with eight spots at the final table walking away with a SCOOP ticket worth $1,050!
