Covid Contingency

We are aware that we are in uncharted waters, planning a huge event while COVID is a major international factor. The Banco Casino in Bratislava has been following strict health measures since 2020 and was able to offer live casino games most of the year. We are confident, it will be the same this summer.

Of course we have a backup plan, if things don’t work out. Tickets and packages will roll over to the next event and we make sure, no player is left with unusable tickets if they cannot make it to Bratislava due to COVID restrictions.
