The European Poker Awards by the Global Poker Index (GPI)

The European Poker Awards have celebrated the achievements of players, industry operators, and personalities within the thriving European poker scene for over 13 years. Come join us on the 25th of March 2015 at the Portomaso Marina Hilton Hotel, St. Julians, Malta for the 14th Edition of the European Poker Awards.

Established & Impartial
The European Poker Awards has been rewarding leaders in the poker industry and poker players for more than a decade. Independent voting juries and expert award nomination panels decide the majority of award winners and the Awards’ signature Player of the Year Award winner is based exclusively from European players’ GPI Player of the Year leaderboard scores. Please feel free to review past ceremonies and winners. For more information on the voting process, as well as an overview of which awards their efforts will go towards deciding please visit our jury and nomination panel page.

Award Categories
Players, industry leaders, and operators from the European Poker World are all honored. Featured awards include those for best poker venues, best poker events, best online initiatives, and best poker innovations, media, best player of the year, and many others. To review the full list of awards and information on each specific category please visit the awards categories section.
