In just over a week, the brilliant MILLIONS tour will return to its original home. MILLIONS UK will take place at Dusk Till Dawn in Nottingham from the 29th September to the 7th October, and with a £5M GTD Main Event as well as four fabulous side events to look forward to, it should be an absolute corker.
Dusk Till Dawn is the spiritual home of UK poker, and is the biggest and best poker room in the country. Everyone who plays there loves it, making it the perfect place to host such a hugely prestigious event.
The MILLIONS UK Main Event remains the tournament with the UK’s biggest guarantee, and the eventual champion will join a prestigious and very exclusive club of players to have captured a MILLIONS Main Event title.
The club currently includes Maria Lampropulos, Aleksandr Gofman, Sam Greenwood, Jon Van Fleet, Taylor Black, Pascal Lefrancois, Team partypoker’s Anatoly Filatov, and Viktor ‘Isildur1’ Blom, and finding out who will join them by watching the MILLIONS UK live stream exclusively on mypartypokerlive.com is sure to be a thrilling ride for players and fans alike.
Main Event Day 1A will get under way on Monday, October 1st at 12:00, with Day 1B getting under way a day later at the same time. Day 1C is on Wednesday, before those that survive combine on Thursday 4th’s Day 2. On Friday, the money will be reached, before those advancing come back on Saturday 6th to battle for a seat at the final table. Finally, on Sunday October 7th, the MILLIONS UK Main Event Champion will be crowned. Who will follow in 2017 Champion Maria Lampropulos’s footsteps?
There's still time to qualify for the Main Event on partypoker. PP LIVE Dollar satellites are running now, with buy-ins from just $5.50. They’re taking place each and every day, and are giving players the chance to win $50 in PP LIVE Dollars. Also taking place daily are $200, $1,000, $5,000 and $10,000 PP LIVE Dollar Satellites, with buy-ins of $22, $109, $530 and $530 respectively.
MILLIONS UK isn’t all just about the £5M guaranteed Main Event, however. With buy-ins starting from just £550, there really will be something for everyone. In addition to the big one, there will be a whopping further £3.5M in guarantees across four titanic side events, each with at least £500,000 guaranteed.
The £1,100 buy-in four-day Open will kick off the festival on Saturday, September 29th. Other side events will include the £550 Finale, a two-day event which will have no less than six opening flights, and the £10,300 High Roller, which have £500,000 and £1M guaranteed respectively.
MILLIONS events are well-known for their Super High Rollers, tournaments that bring together the very best and the very wealthiest in the game in spectacular clashes for astronomical sums of cash. They provide an absolute treat for poker fans all over the world to follow, and it will be no different at MILLIONS UK. The MILLIONS UK Super High Roller will have a £25,500 buy-in with a two-day structure, with Day 1 on Monday, October 1st and Day 2 the following day.
Just to add to all the excitement, partypoker LIVE has also thrown in ten MILLIONS Online seats worth $5,300 each to the MILLIONS UK Main Event prize pool. That’s $53,000 in extra value! The last ten standing in the Main Event will each be rewarded with the bonus prize of a MILLIONS Online seat, adding a big cherry on top of their incredibly deep runs in the tournament.
The poker world was shocked when partypoker LIVE announced that MILLIONS Online 2018 would boast an almost unthinkable $20 million guarantee, making it the largest online tournament guarantee in history. The top ten in the Main Event will earn a seat in a tournament where the last four players standing will all win at least a million dollars, with the top prize likely to be $2.5M. Just making the final table would be worth at least $200,000. Making the MILLIONS UK top ten just got that little bit sweeter!
The first 100 players who bought-in to the Main Event were also entered into a $100K last longer, adding even more spice to the Main Event soup.
When you consider the cracking promotions, incredible schedule of events, and millions of pounds in guarantees, it’s clear that MILLIONS UK will be an absolute treat for both players and fans. MILLIONS UK is ready to rock!
