Partypoker shocked the online poker world yesterday after announcing their massive guaranteed prize pool for the 2018 version of the online MILLIONS Main Event.
The 2017 version had a $5 million guaranteed prize pool and attracted a total of 1,027 entries. The tournament was won by Jon Van Fleet, making him one of the biggest online poker winners this year.
However, next year the guaranteed prize pool for the online MILLIONS Main Event will be four times bigger – a whopping $20 million. The announcement by partypoker was made shortly after PokerStars had announced their $9 million added $25,000 High Roller for 2019.
According to partypoker, the 2018 MILLIONS Online will be played between 1st – 4th December 2018 with the same $5,300 buy-in. Players can win their seats to the event online or live throughout the year.
“Running the first MILLIONS Online this year was an exciting time for us, bringing the concept of our live tour online. The feedback we had from our players was overwhelming, so what better way to say thank you than to run it again but this time making the guarantee a whopping $20,000,000,” partypoker Managing Director Tom Waters said.
