It’s safe to say that 2017 was a fantastic year for Party Poker. From them winning the best operator of the year to them holding hundreds of successful tournaments, it seems that things can’t get any better. But right before the end of this year, Party Poker has announced one more surprise for their players.
You see, earlier this month, Party Poker hosted the biggest tournament in their history, the $5,300 Party Poker MILLIONS Online event. To no surprise, the tournament was a huge success, and it accumulated a whopping $5M prize pool.
So, what does the today’s announcement have to do with this tournament?
Well, Party Poker has come out and confirmed that the MILLIONS Online event would return next year between December 1st and 4th, 2018 with the record-breaking prize pool of $20M guaranteed. Yes, you’ve read it right. Party Poker has decided to quadruple the prize pool for the next year’s MILLIONS Online event.
This is what Tom Waters, Party Poker Managing Director, had to say about this announcement: “Running the first MILLIONS Online this year was an exciting time for us, bringing the concept of our live tour online. The feedback we had from our players was overwhelming, so what better way to say thank you than to run it again, but this time making the guarantee a whopping $20,000,000.”
Two more ways to qualify!
But not only that. They have decided to add two more ways to grab a seat at this event. Besides the standard satellites and qualifying tournaments, Party Poker will host a Weekly MILLIONS Leaderboard. Each week the top ten players will get a spot at the $5,300 buy-in event. This weekly leaderboard starts on February 8th, 2018.
Second bonus way to qualify is to play at any Party Poker LIVE MILLIONS Main Event. Starting with LIVE MILLIONS Germany on February 10-18, Party Poker will be rewarding top ten players with seats to the Party Poker MILLIONS Online event.
Based on today’s announcement, it seems that Party Poker will yet again be one of the poker sites to have an excellent year again.
