SOON TO BE SCREENED ON DSTV

Reality TV is set for a taste of the thrills, anguish and ultimate stakes of the fast-paced world of poker, as DSTV, in collaboration with Piggs Peak Casino, Swaziland launches Southern Africa’s first televised poker tournament – one which saw the creation of Africa’s first poker millionaire.

The largest poker tournament on the continent, the All Africa Poker Tournament was proudly hosted by Piggs Peak Hotel & Casino, Swaziland, in February this year. And from 3 to 17 April, DSTV viewers can share in the excitement and witness the highs and lows, nail-biting anticipation and ultimate test of gaming skill, as passionate poker players pit their skill and luck against one another to claim a share of an ever increasing prize pool.

With over R2 million at stake, with a first prize of R1 million, this was more than a game of chance and culminated in a twenty hour World Series of Poker-style, Texas Hold-Em marathon with 90 hopefuls ranging in age from 21 to 74, from novices to seasoned players, putting their skills to the ultimate test. With Lady Luck adding an element of unpredictability, the grand finale was a nail-biting finish to three days of anticipation, anxiety and tension, with moments of disappointment for some and elation for others – the perfect mix for TV viewers with a taste for exciting reality.

Watch the poker action for the very first time in Southern Africa, as the road to R1 million and poker stardom awaits one talented and lucky individual, creating a new breed of potential poker legends.

The All Africa Poker Tournament was filmed and packaged into six action-packed episodes, which are being broadcast on DSTV Channel 111 24/7 from 3rd April – 17th April 2006..
