Online Day 1s start on partypoker from Tuesday 4th October 2016 where players can buy in for £500 + £50 and receive 100,000 chips. Live Day 1s at Dusk Till Dawn, UK cardrooms and international card rooms will be announced soon. Days 2A, B & C will be online at partypoker or live at Dusk Till Dawn with players either carrying their chips through from any Day 1 or buying in directly for £5,000 + £300 for 1,000,000 chips. The final days will gather players from around the globe at Dusk Till Dawn with a guarantee of £1,000,000 for the winner.
partypoker are kicking off MILLIONS with a special promotion - the first 100 players to make Day 2 will each receive a cash bonus of £550 for travel and expenses. There will also be a special edition of MILLIONS at the Caribbean Poker Party in November in Punta Cana, where two Day 1s and a Day 2 will be hosted at the end of the week with all players who make Day 3 receiving a cash bonus of $1,500. These bonuses are added value to players; funds are not deducted from the partypoker MILLIONS prizepool.
Group Head of partypoker Tom Waters said: "Not only can partypoker players win a share of £5,000,000, they will be able to qualify online from as little as $0.01. We continually look to challenge ourselves and add value for the players. The partypoker MILLIONS does just that, offering the global poker community the opportunity to become a millionaire!"
partypoker Ambassador Mike Sexton commented: "I am absolutely thrilled to host and bring back the partypoker MILLIONS in its original format with £1,000,000 guaranteed to the winner. This multi-venue, live and online event gives players the chance to qualify all over the world and win a share of the huge £5,000,000 guaranteed prizepool. This will be THE event of 2017 which I will not be missing and means a lot to me as this is how my partypoker journey started."
