It may be only a month ago that partypoker announced it was running a £550 buy in tournament featuring a £5 million guaranteed prize pool, but now the goalposts have been moved.
Fret not, partypoker isn’t going back on its ambitious guarantees (the winner walked away with at least £1 million in the £5 million guaranteed prize pool). In fact, it's making the guarantee even larger; one million pounds larger! That’s correct, the partypoker MILLIONS tournament now boasts a massive £6 million guaranteed prize pool.
Tournament Director of the MILLIONS Simon Trumper explained the reasoning behind the guarantee increase only a month into the qualifying campaign.
“With a £550 Day 1 buy in and a £5,300 Day 2 buy-in, the payout must be attractive to both player bankrolls. Rob Yong asked me to work out a way that we could pay all players who make Day 4 but keep first prize at £1,000,000," he said. "Increasing the guarantee to £6,000,000 allows this, plus makes the event more player friendly for our international partners who intend to run Days 1-3 at their venues.”
partypoker players can win a share of at least £6 million from as little as £0.01 thanks to the satellites on the site. Online Day 1s run every Tuesday night and the first 100 players progressing to Day 2 receive their £550 buy-in back courtesy of partypoker.
£100,000 Last Longer
Players heading to the Caribbean Poker Party in Punta Cana this November can begin their quest for partypoker MILLIONS glory at the festival as there is a Day 1 and Day 2 being held on the beautiful island.
What’s more, anyone who takes part in the partypoker MILLONS Day 2 at the Hard Rock Casino and Hotel, Punta Cana on Nov. 25 will automatically be entered into a last longer bet where someone will win £100,000 cash!
The winner will be the player who is eliminated last on Day 2, when the tournament heads to Dusk Till Dawn, Nottingham in April 2017.
