partypoker has hugely enhanced its MILLIONS Online satellite offering, guaranteeing a combined $10m and adding thousands more in satellite seats to the landmark event.
MILLIONS Online is set to be an absolute spectacular, with the earth-shattering $20 million guarantee making it by far the biggest ever online poker tournament by prize pool. Last year's very successful MILLIONS Online 2017 attracted an impressive 1,027 players, which created partypoker's largest ever Multi Table Tournament prize pool of $5.1 million.
partypoker weren’t content to rest on their laurels, however, and announced that they would be taking the unprecedented step of quadrupling the guaranteed prize pool for the 2018 edition of MILLIONS Online to a frankly ridiculous $20 million. partypoker’s latest satellite additions give players even more opportunities to play their part in making history in the record-breaking event.
A major addition to the MILLIONS Online satellite schedule is the new $55 buy-in MILLIONS Online Bonus Satellites.
While these satellites have no guarantee, they each offer an incredible one $5,300 MILLIONS Online seat ADDED to the total prize pool. One entry to MILLIONS Online will therefore always be awarded as added-value, regardless of the prize pool accumulated. Now that's what I call value!
Bonus Satellites take place daily at 7pm BST, with feeder satellites running throughout the day.
Alternatively, for just $109, players will be able to secure their seat in MILLIONS Online via daily Phased Satellites, which run every two hours from 3pm – 1am BST.
Players take their chip stacks from each Phased Satellite through to weekly Final Phase Qualifiers. Each Final Phase has ten MILLION Online seats added to the prize pool – meaning a huge $53,000 in added-value is there to be won every single week.
Since Final Phase qualifiers have no direct buy-in option, players must qualify through $109 Phased Satellites to play for the added-value seats.
Mega Madness and Jackpot Joy
Meanwhile, over $5m in guaranteed seats will be handed out between November 25th and December 4th in last chance Mega Satellites as the event kicks off in earnest.
partypoker has also promised to double the winnings of any player who bags their MILLIONS Online seat through special edition SIT & GO Jackpots from October 8th – November 4th, and goes all the way to conquer the event.
MILLIONS Online Sit & Go Jackpots work like this. If players buy-in for $10 (+rake) to the new mini-tournaments in the partypoker lobby, they’ll be entered into a three-way turbo sit and go.
The random multiplier will then select a prize to be played for, ranging from a $22 satellite ticket to a MILLIONS Online seat worth $5,300. Then the three players battle it out for the potentially life-changing prize. It’s as simple as that!
The prize for each Sit & Go Jackpot will be either the MILLIONS Online seat, a $530 satellite ticket, a $109 satellite ticket, or the $22 satellite ticket. So whatever the prize, it’s definitely worth winning! Even if it’s the $22 ticket, they might just spin it up to a MILLIONS Online seat! Or, of course, they could enter two more Sit & Go Jackpots…
PP LIVE Dollar Goodness
If the Sit & Go Jackpot isn’t for you, then MILLIONS Online Satellites are running constantly on partypoker from as little as $5.50, with daily PPL Dollar satellites giving out prizes of $50, $200, and $1,000 for buy-ins of $5.50, $22, and $109 respectively. The big ones are the $5,000 satellites, which have a buy-in of $530 and are also ran each and every day. Win that and you’ll have a huge chunk of the buy-in locked up.
If you prefer, partypoker are also running Mega Satellites every day at 20:00 with a buy-in of $530, which all have two or three MILLIONS Online seats guaranteed. The Sunday Mega Satellite even has no less than FIVE MILLIONS Online seats up for grabs.
Trickett Can't Wait!
Team partypoker’s Sam Trickett is hugely excited about MILLIONS Online, with the UK poker legend saying: “partypoker continue to raise the bar with their online offering, and this year’s MILLIONS Online guarantees an incredible $20m - four times more than in 2017!
"With $2.5m for first and four $1m+ prizes, I can’t wait to be a part of the biggest event in online poker history.”
