partypoker recently held its popular MILLIONS online tournament. This is one of the biggest online tournaments that partypoker hosts and it once again turned out to be a great success attracting over 1,047 participants.
The initial buy-in of $5,300 was pretty steep but it still did not stop hundreds of poker players from giving it a shot. The event had a guaranteed prize pool of $5 million and online poker players wanted to have a crack at this high stakes online tournament and finish 2017 with a nice sum of money. The winner of MILLIONS online was expected to take home a minimum of $1 million in winnings.7
The online poker website was very pleased with the results of its 2017 MILLIONS Online. The poker operator is already making plans for the 2018 MILLIONS online tournament which will run from December 1-4, 2018.
partypoker has confirmed that the 2018 edition will see a massive increase in guaranteed prize money. The online poker operator has confirmed that there will be a guaranteed prize pool of $20 million, making it one of the biggest partypoker online events in 2018.
partypoker is expecting a much bigger player turnout for its 2018 MILLIONS online now that the guaranteed prize pool has quadrupled. The company is encouraging poker players from all backgrounds to take part in the 2018 MILLION online and has announced that it will hold several satellite and feeder tournaments throughout the year. Players who cannot afford the steep buy-in price of $5,300 for MILLIONS online will be able to take part in online satellites that have extremely low buy-ins and see if they can win a seat to MILLIONS online.
There are also a couple of other options for players to book themselves a free seat to the event. Starting February 5, 2018, partypoker will be hosting a weekly MILLIONS online tournament leaderboard. The top ten players who participated in the leaderboard will be awarded a seat at the December tourney. If they have already won a seat, they will be doubly awarded by earning a $5,300 cash prize. The other option to qualify is through the new promotion that partypoker is running for its Live Events. The top 10 players in every partypoker Live MILLIONS Main Event will be awarded a seat at the MILLIONS online event. The first Live MILLIONS Main event will take place in Germany, in February 2018.
