Following the success of partypoker LIVE last year, partypoker has announced that it will continue with its partypoker LIVE tour in 2018 and make a number of stops across the globe. The online poker website has decided to up the ante with a bigger guaranteed prize pool and new venues for its tour stops in 2018.
This week, partypoker announced on its blog the new schedule for 2018’s partypoker LIVE tour and confirmed that more than $100 million in guaranteed prize money will be given away from November 2017 to November 2018.
All of partypoker LIVE events between Nov 2017 and Nov 2018 come with guaranteed prize pools of at least $5 million. Five of these events guarantee at least $10 million, where at least 250 players will win a minimum of $10,000 each.
Three millionaires will also come out from these $10-million stops. The third-place finisher is set to take home $1 million, the second $1.2 million, and the eventual winner will walk away with $1.4 million.
The MILLIONS events will revisit last year’s successful stops at Playground Poker Club in Canada, Kings Casino in the Czech Republic, Sochi Casino and Resort in Russia, and Dusk Till Dawn in UK. A new stop has been added with Casino Barcelona being featured.
The first stop that will be the Caribbean Poker Party which runs from November 17 to 25 and has a $10 million guarantee. To close out 2017, partypoker will run its MILLIONS Online at partypoker.com which takes place from December 3 to 6, 2017 and has a $5 million guarantee.
partypoker will kick-start 2018 with its MILLIONS Germany at Kings Casino in Rozvadov which takes place from February 10 to 18 and has a $5 million guarantee which will then be followed by the MILLIONS Grand Final in Barcelona which runs from April 7 to 15 and has over $11 million in guaranteed prize money.
In a statement, John Duthie, president of partypoker LIVE said
Since I joined partypoker in January, I’ve been thrilled to see partypoker really stick to its pledge to make live events all about the players. Putting players first is key to ensuring that the partypoker LIVE brand thrives and is well-respected, and it’s been great to be part of this
