The Concord Card Casino Wien-Simmering is not far away from the main train station, where a lot of hotels can be found, which include:

ActiLingua Apartment Hotel
Simm's Hotel
Austria Trend Hotel Doppio Wien
Hotel Hahn Vienna City

CCC Wien-Simmering has partner hotels listed on their website:

https://wien-simmering.ccc.co.at/en/hotels/

It is very easy to reach the casino by public transport:

The casino is next to the tram stop 'Geiereckstraße' (tram number 6) or the S-Bahn-stop 'Geiselbergstraße' (S1 & S7).

Uber is plentiful and highly recommended to get around Vienna easily and comfortably.

Great schedule - couple  of questions:

It's a fairly late start for the main event day 1s - how many levels are there likely to be?

Can I register for other events on the 27th and 28th and then drop out and get a refund if I progress in the main?

Oh, and when does advance registration open?

Thanks

Apologies I completely missed this -

It's a fairly late start for the main event day 1s - how many levels are there likely to be?
Yes the ME starts much later than we are used to, and we are expecting to play 11 or 12 levels, so from 19:00 - 04:00 for example (9 hours including breaks), but overall it fits for the venue with their usual expected playing times and local player base - and, consequently, we are starting other events later each day to compensate with most days not starting until 14:00, with some at 13:00

Can I register for other events on the 27th and 28th and then drop out and get a refund if I progress in the main?]#
Yes absolutely

Oh, and when does advance registration open?
Eventbrite 'Reserve A Seat' facility should be open later today (13th Feb)...

Hi Tom

What is the 3% deduction? Is it just on the re-entry portion of the high roller?

No Matt it's on all events - I've reworded the OP to make that more clear...

So what actually is it? I thought that a €60 event for example was €50 + €10, are you now saying it's €48.50 + €11.50?

So we're tipping the dealers before the game, fair enough, saves doing it at the end because I'm sure there are those that either forget or don't bother at all.

On a sidenote, shame they didn't do that in Blackpool  :P

I've had a sudden urge to play mixed games for 9 days and am looking to come for the festival. Are events full up/likely to be over-subscribed or will I be able to rock up on the 19th and buy in for any events I want to play? I know you have a pre-reg facility on eventbrite but I've got physical euros...
