Those of you sat there considering whether or not to try and qualify for the £6 million guaranteed partypoker MILLONS tournament but are still on the fence about doing so need to continue reading because the special Day 1 cash bonus has been extended.
When we first launched the online Phase 1 tournaments, which feed into the actual MILLIONS Day 1s, we said that the first 100 players to qualify for a Day 1 would receive a £550 cash bonus. This money, £55,000 in total, was not removed from the prize pool, instead it was added as a thank you for your awesome support of this must-play tournament.
Now we are extending the £550 Day 1 cash bonus to the next 100 players who progress from a MILLIONS Online Phase 1, which means you would essentially be freerolling your way towards a slice of a £6 million guaranteed prize pool, of which £1 million is reserved for the eventual champion.
Simply enter one of the MILLIONS Online Phase 1 tournaments for $675, the next of which runs at 9:00 p.m. GMT on Tuesday 13 December, navigate your way through 18 x 18-minute levels and not only will you progress to a live or online Day 1 but will do so with a nice £550 cash bonus placed into your partypoker account within 24-hours of you making your way through to the next stage.
If the $675 (£550) buy in is outside the constraints of your poker bankroll, it is worth heading to the Live Events tab in the partypoker tournament lobby and getting involved in the cut-price feeders that start as low as $5.50 and seeing if you can play your way to the weekly $675 buy in Online Phase 1
Increasing the initial £5 million guarantee to £6 million has allowed us to increase the number of players making it into the prize money places from 135 to 279, and ensure everyone who makes it through to Day 3 is guaranteed at least £5,000 for their efforts.
The predicted payout schedule, found here, shows anyone who reaches the final table will lock up £50,000, a top three finish is worth £400,000 and the MILLONS champion scoops a life-changing £1 million prize.
