While partypoker MILLIONS is at Dusk Til Dawn in April, players have a chance at winning a share of a massive £6 million guaranteed. Of that massive prize pool, at least £1 million is reserved for the eventual champion; will that champion be you?
The partypoker MILLIONS is a multi-phase tournament that runs both online at partypoker and live in casinos around the world, including Dusk Till Dawn in Nottingham. Phase 1s cost £550 ($675) to enter. Players sit down with 100,000 chips and play to blinds starting at 250/500/50a. Once 19 levels are completed, anyone with chips in front of them has progressed to Day 1.
Day 1s take place both online on April 9 and April 16 and live at Dusk Till Dawn on April 18 and April 19. These Day 1s cost £5,300 ($6,750) to enter, if you have not progressed from a Phase 1. It is also possible to buy into the MILLIONS event on Day 2 but must do so before the end of the first break, which occurs after two 75-minute levels. Buying in on Day 1 or Day 2 awards 1 million chips.

Players can play in as many Phase 1 and Day 1s as they wish. For every Phase 1 they survive, they are entered into a separate Day 1 tournament. Once all Day 1s are completed, any player who has progressed more than once will take their largest stack through with them to Day 2.
While £550 ($675) seems a low buy-in for a tournament guaranteeing a £6 million prize pool, you can win a seat to the Phase 1s for as little as $0.01.
So called ‘cent-rolls’ take place every day and award tickets to the $1.10 MILLIONS Micro Feeder, which in turn payout $5.50 MILLIONS Mini Feeder tickets. The $5.50 buy-in tournaments feed into MILLIONS Feeders costing $22, which then award seats into $109 MILLIONS Satellites.
If you have a partypoker account, it is possible to buy into any of the online and live Phase 1s, Day 1s, and Day 2 using the funds in your account. Should you choose this method and go on to cash in the event, your winnings are returned to your partypoker account.
Those of you without a partypoker account can download the partypoker software via UK & Ireland PokerNews and if you enter the bonus code "UKPNEWS16" when making your first deposit, partypoker will match it 100 percent up to $500.
