Shuffling up and dealing at 6:00 p.m. CET on Dec. 30, the $1 million guaranteed Big Game costs $5,200 to enter unless you manage to win your way into it via the many satellites running each day. There are five $109 buy-in Phase 1 satellites running every two hours between 4:00 p.m. CET and 12:00 a.m. CET.

It is possible to win your way into the $109 Phase 1 satellites via MTT Ticket tournaments running around the clock and starting with buy-ins from only $1.10.
The first Big Game ADDED Final takes place at 10:00 p.m. CET on Dec. 23 and the only way into it is by winning your way in via a Phase 1 satellite. partypoker is adding five $5,200 seats to the prize pool with further seats being awarded for every $5,200 in the prize pool, created from the Phase 1 entries.
