$15 Million Gtd Powerfest Starts Jan. 21; Amazing Promotions Await
The seventh edition of the partypoker POWERFEST shuffles up and deals in the first 12 of 147 scheduled events on Jan. 21 and the online poker site is running no fewer than six promotions in the run up to and throughout the series.
This latest POWERFEST has events split into three buy-in categories, Low, Medium and High, to give as many partypoker players the opportunity to win big during the festival.
Some of the highlights of the opening day’s action are a $530 buy-in no-limit hold’em 6-max event with $250,000 guaranteed, a $22 buy-on Title Fight Mini Special Edition that guarantees $50,000 will be won, a $215 buy-in Title Fight Special Edition with $500,000 on the table and a $2,100 buy-in Super High Roller Special Edition with a guarantee of $250,000 on it.
The $500,000 guaranteed Title Fight should be immense value to anyone who plays it because the standard $250,000 Title Fight, which runs every Sunday at partypoker, rarely hits that guarantee and the POWERFEST edition is twice the size.
Six POWERFEST promotions are available, although you’ll have to act quickly to take advantage of the Deposit Prize Draw because it ends today, on Jan 18.
partypoker invites you to reload your account by making a deposit into it in time for POWERFEST getting underway. Everyone who makes a deposit before 11:59 p.m. CET on Jan. 18 is entered into a draw where they can win a share of more than $26,000 worth of POWERFEST tickets.
The draw is split into three depending on the size of your deposit.
|$100-$499||Tickets to every Low POWERFEST worth $637|
|$500-$999||Tickets to every Medium POWERFEST event worth $6,245|
|$1,000 or more||Tickets worth $20,000 to a selection of High POWERFEST events|
Everyone who makes a deposit but does not win a prize in the draw gains access to a $25,000 freeroll on Jan. 21.
There are dozens of satellites feeding into POWERFEST events and playing in them not only gives you the chance to play for big bucks for a reduced price, you can also win a cash prize of between $215 and $10,500.
Play any satellite marked with [“M” for Medium and [“H”] for HIgh and you’ll earn leaderboard points based on your winnings. Finish in the top five of the leaderboard when the promotion ends on Feb. 4 and a cash prize is all yours.
|Position||Medium Prize||High Prize|
A trio of POWERFEST Main Events take place on Feb. 4. They cost $22, $215 and $2,100 to enter. If you are one of the first 100 players to qualify for each of the Main Events and then go on to take the tournament down, partypoker will give you an additional $5,000 for winning the Low Main Event, $10,000 for taking down the Medium Main Event and an extra $15,000 if you are the High Main Event champion.
POWERFEST VII has $170,000 set aside for the best performing players of the series. Players earn points whenever they play in a POWERFEST event and the top 150 points earners at the end of the festival win a share of this loot.
The leaderboards are split into Low, Medium and High and the tournaments have L, M, or H in their description to let you know what points the event will award.
The bottom run of the Low leaderboard awards $20 with the leader banking $2,000. For the Medium leaderboard, you will win between $50 and $5,000, while the High leaderboard pays out between $100 and $10,000.
partypoker is awarding double cashback points on all POWERFEST events played on the following days:
- Friday 26th January
- Saturday 27th January
- Friday 2nd February
- Saturday 3rd February
Lastly, there is an incentive to play several POWERFEST events. Playing just five tournaments gives you access to a $500 freeroll, but play 20 or more and you’ll be given a seat to a $5,000 freeroll.
- Play 5-9 POWERFEST tournaments for a $500 freeroll entry
- Play 10-14 POWERFEST tournaments for a $1,000 freeroll entry
- Play 15-19 POWERFEST tournaments for a $2,500 freeroll entry
