The inaugural online leg of MILLIONS Online earlier this month attracted 1027 entries, creating partypoker's largest ever MTT prizepool of $5.1 million, with the winner, Jon Van Fleet, taking home over one million dollars. MILLIONS Online will return to partypoker on the 1st - 4th December 2018 with the same $5,300 buy-in, but the guaranteed prizepool will be quadrupled to a record breaking $20,000,000.
The MILLIONS Online Leaderboard will commence on Monday 5th February with the top 10 players every week winning a $5,300 MILLIONS Online Seat. Players who win multiple seats will receive $5,300 in tournament dollars with no limit on the number of seats players can win. In addition to the top 10 weekly prizes there will also be mid and low leaderboard where the top 20 players will win $530, $109 and $22 satellite tickets.
partypoker will also add value to the loyal partypoker LIVE customers who have supported the MILLIONS events by adding $53,000 of MILLIONS Online seats to every MILLIONS Main Event in 2018, with 1st - 10th place each receiving a $5,300 MILLIONS Online seat - starting at MILLIONS Germany at Kings Casino 10th-18th February.
partypoker Managing Director Tom Waters said: "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."
President of partypoker Live, John Duthie, commented: "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 prizepool in 2018."
