Press release from: SkatMedia

Early January Skat-Online.com counted more visitors than ever. To live up to the enormous demand, Skat.com increased its server capacity. A comprehensive communication across the servers is a special service. „The players can chat overall servers. If they decide to play Skat on the same table they can easily change the virtual room. Linking the servers was a big technical step forward compared to other providers“, said Markus Riehl, Skat.com´s internet specialist.
Among other things the rush on the free of charge online Skat platform beginning of this year was due to Skatropoly (Suuperding.de). Different online qualifications are offered for this Skat contest in which 36 final players will make the last game for 22.250 Euro. „A separate registration for Skatropoly is not necessary. All players who signed up at Skat-Turniere.de can qualify for the online final round. For this purpose we have tendered 46 tournaments all over the year. The 24 Skatropoly players will be determined from all qualified online participants in December 2008", reports Thomas Steffen, one of the organizers.
The missing 12 Skatropoly players will emanate from four classical offline tournaments. The best three players of selected Skat events will enter the final round by direct qualification. The first opportunity is given to participants of the 5th International Skat Festival in Bad Füssing, held from the 11. until the 15. February. „Beside the beautiful ambiance of the spa itself Skatropoly will be the principal magnet of this activity“, reckons the head of organization and accommodation Alfred Flöck. So, everybody is waiting in anticipation for the winners.
