$500K Alias Race Rewards partypoker Players For Forced Alias Change

partypoker $500,000 Alias Race

If you have ever wished that you could change your partypoker alias to something more apt for you, or perhaps a little less embarrassing, your wishes are coming true on Jun. 17 when the online poke giant rolls out its latest software update.

Every partypoker will be prompted to change their poker alias when they log into their account on Jun. 17. There is no way around this, you have to change your alias if you want to continue playing at partypoker. The forced alias change is part of something bigger with the partypoker website stating there will be a new hand replayer, changes to the rules on observing tables and some changes to the list of permitted third party software that can be used while playing on partypoker.

Screen names are available on a first come first served basis and are limited only by your imagination, although they are all subject to the usual rules regarding appropriate language. Your current alias will go on hold for six months, during which time nobody else will be able to use it, so there are no worries about someone logging in and trying to represent you at the tables.

$500,000 Alias Race

To celebrate the new software launch and to say thank you for being understanding about the forced screen name changes, partypoker is running a massive promotion on Jun. 17 that is giving away half a million dollars.

The $500,000 Alias Race is open to all players, except those from Sweden and the Czech Republic, and sees more than $80,000 awarded to players who log into their account on Jun. 17 and change their alias, an additional $50,000 worth of freerolls are planned, and there’s almost $370,000 being given away in hourly click card drops.

$10,000 Freerolls

Five freerolls, each with a $10,000 prize pool, are open to those who win tickets via the login click cards and the hourly click cards. Registration opens 15 minutes before the freeroll kicks off, everyone starts with 5,000 chips and plays to five minute levels starting at 50/100.
