Partypoker, the online poker website had announced earlier this year plans to re-launch its brand and capture a bigger percentage of the global online poker market. Partypoker recently announced that it has planned a special partypoker MILLIONS tournament for April 2017 that will have a guaranteed prize pool of £5 million.
The Main Event of the partypoker MILLIONS tournament will have a guaranteed £1 million for the eventual winner. The online poker website expects thousands of online poker players from all over the world to take part in the tournament which has a buy-in of just £550. The partypoker MILLIONS tournament will be promoted as a global online poker event with partypoker holding a number of Day1s via its online poker website and live at the Dusk Till Dawn casino in the United Kingdom as well as other casinos across the globe.
In a statement, Mike Sexton, a partypoker ambassador said “I am absolutely thrilled to host and bring back the partypoker MILLIONS in its original format with £1,000,000 guaranteed to the winner. This multi-venue, live and online event gives players the chance to qualify all over the world and win a share of the huge £5,000,000 guaranteed prize pool. This will be THE event of 2017 which I will not be missing and means a lot to me as this is how my partypoker journey started.”
The first live Day1 is scheduled to take place on October 2 at the Dusk Till Dawn casino and the first online Day1 will take place on the partypoker website on October 4. Partypoker is offering a special £550 cash bonus to the first 100 poker players who make it to Day 2. The £550 being awarded to the first 100 players does not come out of the player prize pool but from partypoker and Dusk Till Dawn.
Players who are heading to Punta Cana in November for the Caribbean Poker Party (CPP) will also have the chance to qualify for Day1 and Day 2 during the final stages of the CPP. Players who managed to make it to Day 3 during the CPP will receive a special $1,500 cash bonus from partypoker and Dusk Till Dawn.
The rules of the partypoker MILLIONS tournament will allow players to take part in as many Day 1 and Day 2 events as they would like but only their biggest stack of chips will be carried through as the other chips must be forfeited.
