Please see below all the ways you can buy in to our tournaments:

Cash Buy Ins

Buy in at the venue with cash

Wire / Bank Transfer

For certain festivals, we accept wire/ bank transfer buy-ins. Information regarding this payment method is released on a festival by festival basis. All players wanting to use this option must contact customer services and they will direct you to the correct contact.


Players can win T$ every day on partypoker from just $2.20. They will go into your account immediately. To buy into an online tournament/ online Day 1 with T$, buy in as normal on partypoker and your T$ will automatically be used before any cash unless you have opted out in your settings.

To buy into a partypoker LIVE event with T$, players must buy into the correct holding tank on partypoker for that event if they are available. If there are no holding tanks for the event in question, T$ buy-ins will be unavailable.

Satellite Tickets

Players can win event seats via online or live satellites. Satellite rules vary depending on the event but satellite winners are usually directed into a specific live or online Day 1 so please ensure you check the terms and conditions on your ticket.

If the satellite ticket has been won online, you can buy into the Online Day 1 that it feeds in to on partypoker. You must ensure that you click to use the ticket rather than buy in with funds from your account. You can also use these tickets to buy into live holding tanks on partypoker or speak to the partypoker LIVE staff on the ground at an event to access your seat.

Funds from partypoker Account

Players can buy into online Day 1s or holding tanks for LIVE Day 1s with funds from their partypoker account. If there are no holding tanks, players are unable to enter with funds from their partypoker account. The only exception to that is for Dusk Till Dawn tournaments for which funds from partypoker accounts may be accessed directly from the cash desk.

PP LIVE Dollars

PP LIVE Dollars entries

Players can no longer win PP LIVE Dollars. However, they can use existing PP LIVE Dollars to buy into live events and pay for their expenses. To buy into live events, visit the schedule page and on the left side of the page there is an option to buy in to all events with PP LIVE Dollars. You will need your login and 4-digit PIN to do so.

Please note that there may be some exceptions to these general rules, these will be in the terms and conditions for each specific event. If you are still unsure of the buy-in options, please contact our Customer Services team on Live Chat.
