The Festival Malta 2023 - Mystery Bounty

The Mystery Bounty made its debut during The Festival Malta, 20-21 May 2023. The Portomaso Casino hosted the event, and a whopping number 201 entries were made during the registration period, resulting in massive Mystery Bounties. Eventually, these bounties would come in play on the second day. The lowest bounty would award players €200, where all eyes were set on the massive first prize bounty of €5,000!

Svein Olav Eidsaeter, prodigy of Coolbet, managed to scoop the win during the debut of this event and took at least a €2,000 bounty on the way as well. He climbed up the ladder of the 'Player of the Series' ranking because of this great win. It would eventually become his second win of the week, as he also shipped the Win-The-Button event. Another friend of The Festival, Ruurd Nauta, also managed to secure a good result in this event by finishing 5th overall.

A great experience of the first ever Festival Mystery Bounty came to an end, and surely its debut was quite the success!
