At the start of June, partypoker announced there will be a series of low buy-in Team Online home games scheduled weekly, which are going to be hosted by each member of the newly-formed stream team.
As part of a wider streaming strategy by the company, partypoker’s Team Online was established in February 2019, which is composed of a lineup of some of poker’s top streamers and content creators.
One of the Team Online pros, Jaime Staples, said, “We are incredibly excited to launch home games for each member of our Team Online. People that watch Twitch want to play with the broadcaster as well. Now we can do that 13 times a week on partypoker.”
The home games began on May 31, Friday, with buy-ins ranging from $2.20 to $5.50 for each daily tournament and each Team Online host shall have a bounty on their heads worth $25 cash.
Other than that, if you reach a final table in any home game, you get to earn a seat into the regular “Twitch Open”, scheduled every Saturday at 21:00 CET featuring a buy-in of $11 plus $25 cash for every Team Online member eliminated aside from guest bounty players in the recurring event.
As an extra incentive, those who join in a minimum of one Team Online home game shall get a ticket to a “MILLIONS Qualifier” freeroll, which allows them to play for the chance to win a prestigious partypoker LIVE MILLIONS seat! A total of five freerolls will be given away throughout the year, each awarding a MILLIONS Main Event entry worth $10,300 and the schedule is as follows:
- June 15 – MILLIONS Vegas Freeroll
- July 27 – Millions Europe Freeroll
- October 26 – Caribbean Poker Party Freeroll
- November 30 – MILLIONS Online Freeroll
- December 14 – MILLIONS UK Freeroll
The freerolls to be given away are in the form of tickets, exclusive to players who have joined in at least one home game. Therefore, it is considered a wonderful added-value for players.
The Team Online home games shall all be live-streamed on each host’s personal Twitch channel, and the games can be found by searching the site’s Tournament Name under the “Tourneys”tab.
