As its first stop of 2024, Taipei Taiwan, is about to get underway in just a week’s time, the Asian Poker Tour, in partnership with Natural8, announced its next major event of the year, APT Jeju 2024. This exciting poker festival is set to occur at the lavish Jeju Shinhwa Resort, spanning from April 26 to May 5.

Over ten days, participants will vie for a share of more than KRW 5 billion (~USD 3.76 million) in guaranteed prize money, setting a new benchmark for poker tournaments in the region.

Reflecting on the success of previous tournaments, APT CEO Fred Leung shared, “Last year, we saw exponential growth with record player participation and prize money. In order to meet those increasing needs, we have been on an endless search for like-minded partners who have the same high standards, while also being able to accommodate the sheer size of our present-day poker festivals.” His enthusiasm for the upcoming event is palpable, especially with the collaboration with Landing Entertainment Korea (LEK) to bring this event to life at the Landing Hotel & Casino within the Jeju Shinhwa Resort.
