Jul 16, 2017

The Sunborn London super yacht hotel welcomed over 80 guests to a charity poker tournament sponsored by gaming software developer, Microgaming. The tournament kicked off the ICE Totally Gaming 2017 three day event.

Main Event winner Alon from Crazy Vegas chose Teenage Cancer Trust to receive the 3,000 GBP donation. Second place winner, Sean Auret from Lucky247 and third place winner Jean-Christophe Antoine from Betsson both donated 2,000 GBP and 1,000 GBP respectively to Save the Rhino.

Donations from a number of side events were given to The Children's Centre and the MS Society Isle of Man.

Charity representatives expressed their delight and appreciation for the generous donations which allow them to continue their services.

"The Network Games team were honoured to host such an entertaining and rewarding event," says Jean-Luc Ferriere, Director of Network Games at Microgaming. "I would like to thank everyone, not least the players, involved in making the MPN Charity Poker Tournament such a success, and look forward to including it in our calendar for ICE 2018."
