Players are already winning their way into the Grand Prix UK, with satellites running now, and PartyPoker is adding a set of special prizes to make the action even more exciting.
The Grand Prix UK is pencilled in from September 4-11, paying out a guaranteed £100,000 prize pool for a buy-in of £120.
All players can join the action for a much cheaper buy-in though, with satellites starting from just £0.01. The centrolls lead to a £3.30 feeder ticket, before the £16.50 direct satellite, where players can win their place in an Online Day 1. PartyPoker.com is currently hosting the direct satellites every day, so there is no shortage of opportunities for players to give themselves a shot at the tournament.
Online Day 1s will play out on PartyPoker.com across the first four days of the tournament before the first Live Day 1 at Dusk Till Dawn on September 8. Four more starting flights take place on the next two days, before Day 2 on September 11, when the champion will be confirmed and take the prestigious title.

Players who have success in the tournament can also give themselves the chance to enjoy one of three rewards during the series. An example of this is PartyPoker REPLAY, which will allow any player who qualifies for Day 1A of the tournament via any satellite, but is eliminated before Day 2, to receive a free £16.50 satellite ticket to try again.
There will also be a reward for players who make the final table on Day 2. If players make it to this stage after qualifying via an Online Day 1 on PartyPoker.com, they will win a free £330 satellite ticket for MILLIONS UK in November.
All players who register using holding tanks on PartyPoker.com will also have a chance to win a free mystery gift, with all players registering via this route able to claim a prize. Ask one of the PartyPoker LIVE team members at the help desk, and the prize is yours. It’s as simple as that!
Andrea King, PartyPoker Marketing Manager, said: “We love giving back to our players, and this Grand Prix UK is no exception. We’ve just announced three promotions designed to give extra value to our attendees.
“We think it’s very important that players can access all of our events through qualification and promotions, no matter what their bankroll is. This is why one of the Grand Prix UK promotions will provide up to nine players with the opportunity to ‘level up’ and join us for MILLIONS UK this November. We can’t wait to see you all at Grand Prix UK this September, and we hope to see many of the same faces joining us for MILLIONS UK.”
