The Live Millions Tour starts this year in South America, North America, Europe and the Bahamas and ends online again.
PartyPoker LIVE has announced the stopps for season 3 of the MILLIONS tour, with each main event being converted to freezeout format in 2019.
The tour will stop in four locations around the world and will be completed by the end of the year with the MILLIONS Online Tournament.
Partypoker LIVE has implemented various changes in the way the events will be run based on player feedback, including making each Main Event freezeout format at a standard 10,300 buy in (in local currency).
John Duthie, president of partypoker LIVE said: “Our MILLIONS Season 2 tour has been very successful, however we pride ourselves on listening to player feedback and continually improving our offering to ensure we provide the best live tour in the world.
“As part of this we are going to change the format of our MILLIONS tournaments to a 10,000 (local currency) freezeout, with reduced late registration and no multiple Day 1s. The schedules will be reduced to a maximum of seven days, giving the host venues the option to add their own events around the tournament to build the festival.
“We will also have one MILLIONS trophy that will travel to all of the stops and will be inscribed with the winners’ details following each event.
“We want the MILLIONS brand to be synonymous with being one of the most prestigious live competitions in the world. We hope these changes will allow us to improve and build our MILLIONS tour to make it the best LIVE experience for our players.”
Online satellites for the first event of 2019 in the Copacabana Palace in Rio de Janeiro (15 to 24 March) are already running. Partypoker expects over 200 qualifiers via live and online satellites to the $ 5 million prelude of the GTD season.
There are 10 MILLION South American Packages worth $ 12,000 each, guaranteed for 10 weeks each week at partypoker, in addition to another 100 seats guaranteed by live satellites.
Each online package includes:
- $ 10,300 Main Event Buy In
- $ 1,700 in cash for travel and hotel expenses
As an added bonus, the first 100 players to buy into the MILLIONS South America Main Event with PP LIVE Dollars will receive $1,000 cash immediately to cover their travel costs.
PP LIVE Dollars is a flexible currency that can be won in satellites on partypoker and used to fund tournament buy-ins, travel, hotels and even visas.
