partypoker LIVE Partners With ARIA for MILLIONS Vegas Debut
partypoker LIVE is set to make its US debut in June! Its flagship MILLIONS poker tour is heading to ARIA Resort & Casino from June 28 – July 2.
This will be another great addition to the exciting poker summer schedule that will take place in Las Vegas.
Guaranteeing a massive $5 million in prize money, MILLIONS Vegas will become part of ARIA’s popular lineup of high roller events throughout the summer and will run as a standalone, “special edition” of the tour’s Main Event. It will feature two starting flights, with one entry allowed for each flight.
Due to requests from partypoker LIVE partners, the Vegas edition of the tour will move away from the traditional structure, allowing direct buy-in into Day 2 before the conclusion of the first two levels. The event has a buy-in of $10,300, and live satellites will run at ARIA starting June 27.
ARIA is a high-end casino well- known for its distinguished amenities, first-class restaurants, entertainment and night life. Players often gather at the luxurious venue to play and experience high-class poker.
John Duthie, president of partypoker LIVE said teaming up with ARIA is a significant step as they expanded operations to the US. He praised ARIA’s poker team for being genuinely passionate about the game. Duthie believes partypoker LIVE and the famous Vegas venue are on the same page in their goal to listen to the players and work hard to grow the game.
Sean McCormack, Director of Poker Operations at ARIA, said the team is excited to welcome the newest addition to their extensive summer schedule.
The 50th World Series of Poker (WSOP) is also scheduled for this summer in Las Vegas and will give WSOP players the chance to also experience the MILLIONS brand. Partypoker will also host an exclusive “invite only” Players’ Party which will take place on July 2.
This year’s MILLIONS tour makes its first stop in North America at the Playground Poker Club, Montreal on May 22-27. It will also head towards Europe on August 10-18, with the King’s Resort in Rozvadov, Czech Republic playing host. The final showdown takes place at MILLIONS World in the Bahamas on November 15-24. To close the year, partypoker will also host MILLIONS Online on December 1-10.
The team at partypoker is still finalizing the schedules so players should stay tuned for the latest updates by visiting the partypoker website.
