$30,000 Guaranteed Weekdays

Phil Laak Wins The PartyPoker Big Game
The PartyPoker Big Game 48-hour cash game was a massive success and thoroughly enjoyed by everyone who was involved in it and watched it on the live stream. But one man enjoyed it more than most, the eventual winner Phil Laak.
The PartyPoker blog caught up with Laak shortly after the game came to an end and he explained he had been playing for 54 hours!
Check out this video of Laak and all reports into the Big Game on the PartyPoker Blog.
$100,000 of Freerolls Every Month!
There are some who say you do not receive anything for nothing in this life, while others famously sang a song about the best things in life being free. Well we think the latter is true and so does PartyPoker, because each month it gives away an almost unbelievable $100,000 in freerolls!
Freerolls are a great way to build a bankroll from scratch because they are completely risk free as they are free to enter. There is a weekly freeroll that is only open to new players who have signed up for a PartyPoker account during the last seven days and it has a huge $1,500 prize pool. Not only that but it is restricted to 5,000 entrants too so you stand a good chance of walking away with some free cash.
Also, each and every day there are $150 freerolls taking place for players around the world. Running between 07:30 and 19:30 EDT, these freerolls are restricted to specific countries so the field are smaller than standard freerolls plus you will be able to chat, needle and trash talk with your fellow countrymen and women to your heart's content! What more could you want?
