Partypoker is giving players more chances to qualify for the £6 million guaranteed MILLONS tournament by creating a seven-week team challenge that awards more than £54,000 worth of tickets to the winners.
The MILLIONS Team challenge runs from Jan. 30 to Mar. 19 and sees teams of up to four players compete in two daily $5.50 tournaments. Half of the prize pool of these tournaments is awarded as a standard payout, with the other half being used for the Grand Final on Mar. 26.
Players earn chip points based on their finishing positions of the daily league tournaments with the best four results counting. Once the league games are completed, the chip points are used to determine how many chips those players sit down with at the Grand Final.
