Thanks to the special relationship we enjoy with partypoker, the online poker room is hosting six tournaments where each month you can win a share of $2,000 absolutely for only $1.
The tournaments provide tremendous value thanks to the field being limited to new and existing players that have downloaded partypoker through our links and have made at least one deposit.
If you need an account, download partypoker through PokerNews and make your first deposit using the "PNCOM" bonus code. This will not only make you eligible for our tournaments but also award you a generous welcome package that includes your first deposit being matched in the form of a bonus up to $500.
Each of the freerolls is played as no-limit hold'em freezeouts on nine-handed tables with players starting with 3,000 in chips. The structure provides you plenty of chances to build a stack with blinds increasing every 15 minutes.
The freerolls can be found under the Restricted tab under the Tournament heading with the dates as follows:
- July 15
- August 19
- September 16
- October 21
- November 18

All-New Pokerfest Returns to partypoker
Satellite tournaments for the 2015 edition of Pokerfest can now be found in the partypoker lobby and we urge you to get involved in some of them. Why? Because this year’s Pokerfest is bigger and better than ever before thanks in part to partypoker adding a live poker element to be held at Dusk Till Dawn (DTD).
Pokerfest Online runs from September 27 until October 11 and during that time at least $2.5 million is to be distributed across 80 events. The grand finale, the 2015 Pokerfest Online Main Event, takes place October 11, costs $250 to enter and has a whopping $300,000 guarantee.
The inaugural Pokerfest Live kicks off slightly earlier than the online events, running at DTD from August 2 through September 6 and guarantees £620,000 across 10 exciting tournaments including a £300+£30 buy-in Main Event with a £300,000 guaranteed prize pool.
Qualifiers, starting as low as $0.10, for both Pokerfest Online and Live can now be found in the partypoker lobby along with some Pokerfest-specific missions and the chance to win Golden Chips that could see you walk away with £15,000!
Partypoker first launched in 2001, and at one time it was the leader in online poker. Partypoker is still one of the largest online poker sites in the world and its software has been downloaded more than 30 million times.
In March 2011, PartyGaming and sports betting giant bwin merged to create bwin.party Digital Entertainment, the world’s largest publicly listed gaming company. In September 2013, partypoker launched a new "social" poker software that incorporates a number of features designed to attract new and casual players. These include player achievements and the ability to easily see what your partypoker friends have recently been up to.
Since February 2016, partypoker's parent company, bwin.party entertainment, has been owned by GVC Holdings who purchased the company for more than $1 billion.

Complete the missions to get free money!
Partypoker isn't just about poker but is also about having fun. At any given time, partypoker has available a wide variety of 'missions' you can challenge yourself with.
It is not only fun to complete missions, but you can also reward yourself with prizes and a unique badge.
You can find these missions by heading to Achievements and then to Missions within the partypoker client. From there, just choose any mission you wish to complete, read the steps involved, and click on Start Mission.
If you are a sit-and-go player, you should consider to challenge yourself with the EASY Sit & Go Mission or the EXTREME Sit & Go Mission.
Completing the EASY Sit & Go Mission will reward you with $10 in free cash once you will be done with its three main objectives:to play 3 sit-and-go tournaments a day for 3 days, to win a hand with AA, KK, QQ, JJ and TT, and to eliminate 1 player a day for 5 days in sit-and-gos.
The EXTREME Sit & Go Mission, however, will require a little more determination, but along with harder work comes bigger rewards with $25 in free cash and a $5 bonus.
Cash game players can help themselves to a free $25 by completing one of the two cash game missions available, the Cash Game Mission – Pocket Pairs and the Cash Game Mission – Final Hands.
Each mission has a different objective, with the first mission requiring you to receive pocket pairs from AA to 22 in descending order, and the second mission requires you to win at showdown in consecutive order all hands up to a straight-flush.
Games Offered at partypoker
Hold'em and Omaha cash games running from $0.01/$0.02 and increasing up to $5/$10 for Omaha, and $25/$50 for Hold'em. Stud and Stud Hi/Low cash games are also available, but these games run infrequently.
partypoker's take on fast-fold poker is called fastforward poker and is currently only available in no limit Hold'em form, and with stakes ranging from $0.05/$0.10 up to $0.50/$1.
When playing fastforward - once you fold your hole cards, you are instantly whisked away to a new table with new opponents and a fresh set of hole cards. If you don't like your new cards, you can throw them away and keep folding until you find a hand that you feel comfortable with.
partypoker has put a lot of effort into revamping its tournament schedule and each tournament now comes under one of four categories, based on the buy-in level, in what is known as the Power Series; there is now $10 million guaranteed every week.
Two major online festivals run at various points throughout the year. POWERFEST is partypoker's flagship festival and sees hundreds of tournaments with buy-ins of $1.10 to $25,500 take place over the course of a couple of week. The Monster Series is partypoker's low-to-mid stakes festival that usually has buy-ins of $0.44 up to $33 yet still features some large guaranteed prize pools.
partypoker also has "jackpot sit and go tournaments" called Sit & Go Hero. These fast-paced games give you the chance to win potentially huge prizes of up to $1.02 million in a matter of minutes and for a relatively small buy-in.
