Party Poker Announces Party Poker Millions

By April of next year, one lucky poker player will be a millionaire. Party Poker is known for hosting quality online and land based poker tournaments and the brand recently announced details for the Party Poker MILLIONS tournament series. This special event will offer several Day1s so players will have a shot at taking part in the big event which will feature £5 million in guaranteed prize money.

The Party Poker MILLIONS will be a tournament in no-limit hold’em format that offers the massive prize guarantee with £1 million going to the overall winner. The buy-in for the event is only £550, which may seem like a lot, but when you consider the prize money allotted, its actually quite low.

For players to be able to reach the final rounds, the tournament is offering several Day1s both online via Party Poker and live at the popular card room Dusk Till Dawn. Other cards rooms located in the United Kingdom will also host the Day1s, giving players in several locations the option to compete.

Players who take part in Day 1 will buy-in for £550 and be given 100,000 in starting chips. Blinds will start at 250/500 and will increase every 16 minutes for online players. Those who take part in land based venues will see blinds increase every 30 to 40 minutes. After 14 levels of game play are complete, any players remaining will move on to Day 2. This is when the blinds will start at 2,500/5,000. Those who make it to Day 2 will be able to compete online at Party Poker as well as Dusk Till Dawn. Party Poker also is planning a Day 2 for the Caribbean Poker Party.

Players do have the option to buy-in to Day 2 directly at a cost of £5,300. With this amount, players will be given 1 million in starting chips. Party Poker has opened up the Day 1 tournaments so that players and compete as much as they like. So if you get knocked out, you can come back and try again, just paying the buy-in each time you do. This can also be done with Day 2s. However, if you are able to move forward, you will only be able to take your largest chip stack and any other chips will be forfeited.
