Party Poker has launched a new promotion during the month of March that could find one of its customers winning $1 million. The Million-Dollar Hand promotion began on March 11th and will continue until 11:59 PM EST on March 22nd. While there is no guarantee that anyone will take home the full million dollars, players can win anywhere from $5 to $5,000 as well.
Here is how the promotion works: during the promotional period, real money players on Party will earn one playing card for every 15 Party Points they collect. Once players collect five random cards, they can win money based on the quality of the hand they create. In order to receive a cash prize, a five card hand must make at least one pair. If a player makes a pair of fives after collecting their five cards, they win $5. Two pair is worth $10, while straights can earn you $50 and a flush merits $100. The top prize of $1 million will be paid to any player who makes a royal flush with their five card hand. The odds of being dealt a royal flush are 649,740 to one.
There are some rules and regulation for customers participating in the promotion. Players are limited to only two hands (or 90 Party Points worth of cards) per 24 hours. In order for players to access their promotional playing cards, they must open their Party account and reveal their cards. All cards must be revealed before the promotional period ends on the 22nd. Participants are eligible to earn prize money on more than one hand during the course of the event.
Within the first two days of the Million-Dollar Hand promotion, Party has already doled out nearly 5,000 winning hands and over $50,000 in prize money. No one has made a straight or royal flush as of yet, but six players have managed to make four of a kind, good enough for $1,000 a piece.
Party Poker revised their rewards program back in December of last year. The monthly and weekly point goals that were part of the older rewards program were done away with and a more straightforward program was introduced instead. Players can now earn one Party Point for every $1 in registration fees and/or rake they pay. Customers who earn more than 5,000 Party Points within a month are eligible to join Party’s Palladium Lounge, which offers free rolls, cash bonuses, and VIP services.
