In 2017, the Cash Game Festival took place in Nova Gorica, Slovenia for the first time. This was our first live event next to the Italian border. Casino Perla’s poker room is mostly known for its tournaments. However, they were willing to test the waters with the Cash Game Festival. The result was a nice poker festival where local players could discover the festival and enjoy the vibe.

Of course, the festival attracted some of our regular players from Sweden and London as well. These players are always curious about our new stops and, therefore, willing to travel in order to see the local poker scene and to meet up with the team.

The town of Nova Gorica is set in a picturesque location with the famous Italian town Venice being just about 1.5-hour drive away. The location is ideal for those who want to do some sightseeing when taking a break from poker.

Moreover, Nova Gorica is nice and calm, featuring some fine local cuisine and wine. Casino Perla is very comfortable and with excellent and friendly service. The casino’s hotel & spa complex is adding an extra layer of comfort for the guests. The Slovenian hospitality is truly amazing!

Thank you, Slovenia!
