The flagship annual online event shall once more carry a $20 million guaranteed prize pool that debuted last year, with the buy-in increased to $10,300 to bring the MTT in line with all 2019 MILLIONS events, thus making it the biggest online $10,000+ buy-in event ever staged.
$20M GTD MILLIONS Online
- Duration: December 1 to December 10, 2019
- Buy-in: $10,300
The event has four Day 1s, and they all feed into Day 2. A winner will be crowned on Day 3!
A variety of promotions have run throughout the year to give players a chance to be a part of history, with $1M worth of free tickets given out to lucky players in the past month alone for completing various missions.
MILLIONS Online $1M Chip Leader promo
Just recently, partypoker announced a bonus cash prize of $1M that awaits the Day 1A chip leader should they be able to dominate the entire event outright (with their Day 1A chip stack).
#TeamMILLIONS Last Longer promo
Other than the above promo, partypoker's #TeamMILLIONS last longer campaign shall award a 2020 Caribbean Poker Party package for the player who either buys in directly or qualifies via a Mega Satellite or Sunday Final and makes the deepest run in the tournament. Players can buy into any Day 1 to qualify for this promotion, but they need to buy in prior to the start of Day 1A.
Players can claim their share of hundreds of guaranteed seats in the run-up to the event with the launch of partypoker's Mega Satellite program this week, featured by two of the largest satellites ever run by the site.
December 1 and December 8 (Sundays) shall see a pair of $1,050 buy-in Mega Satellites each guarantee 50 x $10,300 MILLIONS Online seats apiece at 17:00 GMT, which equals to over $1,000,000 worth of guaranteed entries.
The table below shows the current Mega Satellite schedule (all times are GMT). Note that this schedule can change, so better check the partypoker lobby for the latest Mega Satellite schedule.
partypoker has generously added an extra Day 1 flight to the event schedule so that more players can have the chance to join in on this year's showpiece event.
They many daily satellites running on partypoker have awarded seats to 198 players so far, including Team partypoker's Richard Dubini, Renato Nomura and Roberto Romanello, all looking to become just like last year's winner, Manuel ‘Sheparentao' Ruivo, who turned his initial investment into a life-changing score.
The 2018 MILLIONS Online made history as the single biggest online poker tournament ever, paying out a total $21,835,000 in prize money as it exceeded all expectations in smashing the $20M guarantee. The event was triumphed by Manuel ‘Sheparentao' Ruivo for $2,329,943.88, one of four millionaires made, while Pim ‘ForMatherRussia' de Goede claimed second place worth $2,309,994 after a heads-up deal.
Richard Dubini of Team partypoker said, "Yesterday I played the $109 satellite into the $530, where I won my seat to MILLIONS Online. I am so excited; I really wanted to play the biggest tournament in the history of online poker. My goal is to reach the final table."
John Duthie, chairman of partypoker LIVE said, "If you're chip leader after Day 1A, and you win it, you're gonna add another million? That's just crazy. That's crazy!"
