Site’s annual flagship online event retains $20M guarantee, while buy-in is increased to $10,300
partypoker has announced the dates for its 2019 edition of MILLIONS Online.
Scheduled to take place from Sunday, December 1, to Tuesday, December 10, this year’s tournament will again carry a $20,000,000 guaranteed prize pool. In a change from 2018 however, the tournament will feature as part of a wider tournament series supported by a host of side events.
In line with all 2019 partypoker LIVE MILLIONS Main Events, the 2019 instalment also sees the buy-in increased to $10,300 – making it the largest ever online $10K+ buy-in event.
Once again, a dedicated satellite program will offer players of all levels the chance to participate for a fraction of the price.
Last year’s MILLIONS Online made history as the single largest online poker tournament ever held, paying out a total $21,835,000 in prize money as it exceeded all expectations in smashing the $20,000,000 guarantee. The event was eventually won by Manuel ‘Sheparentao’ Ruivo for $2,329,943.88, one of four millionaires made, with Pim ‘ForMatherRussia’ de Goede claiming second place worth $2,309,994 following a heads-up deal.
Team partypoker’s Fedor Holz said: “I’m excited that partypoker are bringing back MILLIONS Online this year and the best news is they have added even more events to the schedule.
“Last year I outlasted my partypoker teammates but this year I’ll be looking to go one better and take down the trophy!”
partypoker managing director, Tom Waters, said: “Following the success of last year’s MILLIONS Online we’ve decided to keep the $20M guarantee, however we wanted to bring the full MILLIONS live experience online and offer a host of side events alongside the Main Event, providing players with an exciting new online festival under the prestigious MILLIONS brand.
“Regular satellites supported by a suite of promotions will also ensure we give as many players the chance to get involved as possible.”
