Good morning, good afternoon or good evening — depending on where in the world you are reading this article from — and welcome to the latest installment of the PartyPoker Weekly. This week we bring you news on The Accelerator promotion that is drawing to a close, how to win your seat to the Aussie Millions for free, and more. Do you want to know more? Then keep reading for all the relevant information.
The Accelerator Must End Nov. 30
The Accelerator promotion began on Nov. 1 but like all good things it must come to an end. This extremely popular promotion will close at midnight on Nov. 30, meaning you only have a few days remaining if you want to improve on your prize haul.
There are some fantastic prizes on offer including, freeroll entries where you could win an iPad 3 or a share of $15,000 plus there are instant cash prizes ranging from $5 and increasing to a more significant $1,725! These prizes start being awarded after earning just 5 PartyPoints so everyone, regardless of the stakes they play, should be able to win a prize with ease.
Check out the graphic below for a full breakdown of how the $30,000 worth of freerolls and $5,000 in cash are distributed.
What makes this promotion really stand out of the crowd is the fact you get to keep each prize you earn and not just the prize with the highest value. This means if you have earned 100 PartyPoints between Nov. 1 and when the promotion ends on Nov. 30 then you will win an entry to the iPad giveaway freeroll AND entries to freerolls with prize pools of $5,000; $10,000 and $15,000!
The more PartyPoints you earn before Nov. 30 the better your prize will be. Should you manage to earn 40,000 PartyPoints, you will have won a grand total of $5,000 in cash and entries to $30,000 worth of freerolls. What's more, reaching 40,000 PartyPoints would see you become a Palladium Elite VIP member where benefits include up to 50% cash back on your play!
Win Your Way To The Aussie Millions
The Aussie Millions is one of the most eagerly anticipated live poker events and you could be heading there for some January sun, armed with a $16,000 package to the Main Event!
Qualifiers are already in the PartyPoker lobby and will stay there until Jan. 6, 2013. For the more frugal player there are a plethora of freeroll tournaments, and for those players wishing to invest some of the bankroll freezeouts start at $8 and rebuys from just $2. All of the qualifiers eventually feed into the weekly $640+$40 Aussie Millions Satellite where one package will be guaranteed.
Each luxury $16,000 package consists of:
- $11,000 Aussie Millions Main Event buy-in
- Eight nights accommodation
- $2,500 spending money
The 2013 Aussie Millions Main Event kicks off on Jan. 27 and with a little bit of luck you will still be in Australia on Feb. 2 when the final table takes place. How fantastic would it be if you managed to navigate through to the final table after qualifying from a freeroll tournament? Do you think you could do that? There is only one way to find out.
