SLYDE announced the partnership with PokerStars LIVE Macau for the current Asia-Pacific Poker Tour (APPT) season — the Swiss watch brand that has 'luxury' written all over it will also return for the upcoming European Poker Tour (EPT) season and again hold the hallowed position of official watch sponsor for the event.
Champions of the EPT main events and high roller events will have a specially designed SLYDE watch to show the world as the mark of a champion in PokerStars' events beginning in August with the 100th EPT event in Barcelona — the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) Main Event, High Roller, and Super High Roller are included in the prestigious SLYDE award since they are part of the EPT tour.
Of course there is no way to put a true value on a SLYDE watch won at a PokerStars event, but if one were to pursue actual value, the unique "black and steel" design watch is valued at over €5,000. The PokerStars and Monte-Carlo® Casino EPT Grand Final winner is in for a real treat because the "black and rose gold" design is valued at over €9,000.
"The EPT is thrilled to once again be working with SLYDE for a third consecutive year and offering an amazing gift for our main event and high roller winners," said EPT President Edgar Stuchly. "The watches are truly something special — a keepsake to complement the amazing achievement of winning an EPT title."

Awards by SLYDE for the APPT will find the winners of the Macau Poker Cup Red Dragon Main Event and 2014 Asia Championship of Poker Main Event taking home watches that feature a special "titanium" design valued at $8,480.
"PokerStars LIVE Macau is delighted to welcome SLYDE to our events," APPT President Danny McDonagh said. "We are excited to offer our event winners the opportunity to wear these magnificent pieces of art on their wrists as part of their prize."
