Below you can find useful information about playing Paradise Island poker.
If you really want to play poker and spend some time in a fascinating atmosphere, you should definitely try to go to Paradise Island, in the Bahamas. If it happens that you have to stay at home, don’t worry, you can choose from the best rakeback options.
1. How to get there
There are direct flights from London to Nassau at a reasonable price, which is the easiest way to get there. However, if you are not much of that person, instead of flying, you can also get to the Bahamas by boat. British Airways offers direct flights from London, but they are quite expensive at around $2,000. It’s a cheap way if you go from Frankfurt, Germany, while you can go there around $650 – $700.
There are many options for staying on Paradise Island. There are many great hotels in Paradise Island whose quality of service and enjoyment are sure to live up to expectations. The most famous hotels in Paradise Island are Grand Hyatt Baha Mar and Atlantis. The average price per night in such hotels starts at about $300 – $350, but the more expensive apartments can go up to about $2,500 per night.
3. Other activities worth trying
Everyone should get to the Bahamas and the Caribbean once in their life. This is the entertainment destination. A boat ride on the Caribbean Sea is absolutely a great pleasure with the wonderful view of the sea and the island. In addition, the Caribbean also offers you many opportunities for pleasure. There are beautiful beaches and coasts on the island.
You can also go bone fishing, visit the forts of Nassau or the pirate museum. It is a really good choice to have a great time with your friends. In case you want to have a few nice cigars, you can hop over to Cuba, which is a 90-minute plane ride from the Bahamas.
4. Poker expenses
Probably the most famous poker event in the Bahamas is the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA). The venue for the PCA Series was The Atlantis Paradise Island Resort & Casino except in 2004. It ran continuously for 15 consecutive years until 2019.
At the PCA, entry fees ranged from $330 to $25,000. The event with the biggest buzz has always been the $10,300 Main Event, which attracts hundreds of players. Therefore, the ultimate winner would usually take home 7 figures. Poker legend Gus Hansen also won the PCA Main Event title.
Fortunately, PokerStars has officially confirmed that the PCA will take place from January 22 to February 3, 2023. In addition, PokerStars has also confirmed the return of the PokerStars Players No-Limit Hold’em Championship (PSPC), which will run concurrently with the PCA from January 30 – February 3, 2023 PSPC buy-in will be $25,000, reflecting that of the first installment.
The Bahamas are quite expensive not only in terms of poker, but also in terms of vacations. In terms of food and drinks, you should expect that there will be 20-25% higher prices compared to US prices.
At an average of $600 a day you can make a pretty good living playing poker in the Bahamas. Needless to say, there are much more expensive places. To sum up travel, accommodation and poker costs, it will cost around $4,500 – 5,000 to stay and enjoy playing poker at Paradise Island for a weekend.
