Partypoker is going to make one lucky poker player a millionaire in April 2017 with the launch of the partypoker MILLIONS tournament.
The partypoker MILLIONS is a no-limit hold’em tournament featuring a massive £5 million guaranteed prize pool, of which £1 million is reserved for the eventual champion. Those figures make impressive reading in their own right, but when you consider the buy in for the partypoker MILLIONS is only £550, those figures become almost unbelievable.
In order to reach the ambitious guarantee, the tournament is set to have dozens of Day 1s held online at partypoker and will go live at Dusk Till Dawn, and several other card rooms around the United Kingdom and across the world, making the partypoker MILLIONS a truly global event.
Players buying into Day 1 for £550, receive 100,000 chips and play to a blind structure that starts at 250/500 and increases every 16 minutes online, and every 30 or 40 minutes in live venues. If a player still has chips in front of them after the completion of 14 levels, they progress to Day 2 where blinds are rolled back to 2,500/5,000.
Day 2s take place online at partypoker, live at Dusk Till Dawn and at a special Day 2 at the upcoming Caribbean Poker Party.
It is possible to buy into Day 2 directly for £5,300. Doing so purchases a stack of 1 million chips.
Players are permitted to play in as many Day 1s and Day 2s as they wish, even if they progress further. However, only their largest stack carries through with them and their other chips are forfeited.
Mike Sexton, a partypoker Ambassador, said he's excited about the partypoker MILLIONS tournament.
“I am absolutely thrilled to host and bring back the partypoker MILLIONS in its original format with £1,000,000 guaranteed to the winner," he said. "This multi-venue, live and online event gives players the chance to qualify all over the world and win a share of the huge £5,000,000 guaranteed prize pool. This will be THE event of 2017 which I will not be missing and means a lot to me as this is how my partypoker journey started.”
partypoker MILLIONS Launch Promotions
To kick off the partypoker MILLIONS, there is a special bonus awarded to the first 100 players to progress to Day 2. The first live Day 1 takes place at Dusk Till Dawn on Oct. 2, and the first online Day 1 at partypoker on Oct. 4. The first 100 players to navigate their way to a Day 2 receive a £550 cash bonus.
This money is being added by partypoker and Dusk Till Dawn and does not come out of the prize pool.
Players who finds themselves in Punta Cana this November for the Caribbean Poker Party can get involved in two Day 1s and two Day 2s during the final stages of the festival. Any player who progresses to Day 3 while at the Caribbean Poker Party receives a $1,500 cash bonus, which again is added value and not taken from the lofty £5 million guaranteed prize pool.
