The Only Thing Mini About the Powerfest Mini is its Name
The $10 million guaranteed Powerfest festival takes place at partypoker between September 4 and September 25, but before then there is the Powerfest Mini to get involved in; the perfect warm-up for low stakes tournament players.
Powerfest Mini runs from September 1 through to September 4 and features 12 events with buy-ins ranging from $0.55 up to a still affordable $2.20. Despite the low buy-ins, partypoker is guaranteeing at least $49,500 will be won by the time the 12th event finishes.
