To celebrate our 10th Anniversary, we’re off to Las Vegas in June 2017 to host the North American Poker Championship.  And we want you to join us on this amazing poker trip.  We’re giving you the chance to satellite your way to Vegas throughout the season with both LIVE and ONLINE super satellites guaranteeing ONE PACKAGE to Las Vegas.


On top of that, we are giving away ONE PACKAGE to every National Championship Main Event winner throughout the season, plus the winner of the World Championship Of Amateur Poker Main event.  And finally, the overall Player Of The Year that tops our Season 10 rankings will also win a package to Vegas.


It’s incredible value to all of our players from APAT and our partner Grosvenor Casinos.  We can’t wait to celebrate in Las Vegas, and we’d love to see as many APAT players as possible make their way across the Atlantic.


Most APAT players will be in Vegas from 3rd-10th June, but the APAT team will be around a few days before and after these dates, so if you are in Vegas this Summer, let us know via the forum.

The Destination Vegas 2017 winners will be joined by the one and only BRIAN YATES from the Black Country Poker Club.


Brian won the APAT Player Of The Season last year and will be joining us in Vegas 2017 as part of his added value prize.

The Season 10 Player Of The Year will also win an added value package, so yet another way you could join us on the plane to Vegas in 2017.

What’s In The APAT Package ?

Return flights to Las Vegas 03-10 June 2017

Hotel accommodation for 7 nights

Entry to the Colossus WSOP bracelet event

Exact details are to be confirmed.  All Vegas 2017 package winners have total flexibility with their package – with only 2 requirements – firstly, ‘someone’ must travel on the package in June 2017 – so you can travel personally, or sell/transfer the package as you wish – but it is ‘use it or lose it’… and secondly, time in Vegas must cover at least the official APAT travel dates – so we will either book your trip with our official dates, or you may pay any extra costs for us to book you to travel earlier and/or come back later…
