The partypoker Online MILLIONS event made headlines in December with a rousing $5 million guaranteed for the $5,300 buy-in. The largest MTT prize pool in partypoker history reached $5.1 million and over $1 million went to first place winner Jon ‘apestyles’ Van Fleet.
MILLIONS online returns to partypoker on December 1, 2018, with the same $5,300 buy-in but a quadrupled guarantee. partypoker is laying $20 million on the line and players will have the full year to earn their seat for this massive event.
The MILLIONS Online Leaderboard is in effect starting Monday, February 5 with the highest-ranking 10 players each week earning their seat to the event. Along with the leaderboard, the top 20 players win $530, $109 and $22 satellite tickets.
Players who finish in the top 10 of a partypoker Live MILLIONS event get a seat to the $5,300 MILLIONS Online event. The first of these seats will be awarded from February 10-18 at Kings Casino for MILLIONS Germany.
On adding MILLIONS Online to the partypoker schedule, President of partypokerLive John Duthie said, “I love the concept of a MILLIONS leg on partypoker, it gives us the opportunity to bring together our MILLIONS players from all over the world at the end of the year to compete for an unprecedented prizepool. I was a little nervous about trying this concept out, but players supported us this time so we should return the favour and go for a record-breaking online prize pool in 2018.”
partypoker Managing Director Tom Waters added, “Running the first MILLIONS Online this year was an exciting time for us, bringing the concept of our live tour online. The feedback we had from our players was overwhelming, so what better way to say thank you than to run it again but this time making the guarantee a whopping $20,000,000.”
