MILLIONS Online KO returns to PartyPoker during May and we cannot wait to get the show in the road. The latest instalment of the ever-popular MILLIONS Online KO features ten action-packed progressive knockout numbered events that have buy-ins from $55 to $530, and combined guaranteed prize pools that are north of $1.9 million! Throw into the mix dozens of side events, and it is easy to see why PartyPoker is the online poker site to play at this May if you love PKO events.
May 4, which some of you out there refer to as Star Wars Day (May the 4th be with you, no?), is your first opportunity to delves into the MILLIONS Online KO schedule. Costing $162 to enter and boasting a $100,000 guaranteed prize pool, the Opener is the perfect way to kick off the festival. There are six Day 1s before the crowning of the champion on May 8.
$500,000 Guaranteed MILLIONS Online Main Event
There are also six flights for the eagerly anticipated MILLIONS Online KO Main Event, a $530 buy-in tournament with half a million dollars guaranteed to be won. Day 1A shuffles up and deals at 19:05 BST on May 7, with subsequent Day 1s taking place at the same time across the next three Sundays. Two last-chance flights run on May 29, which is also when the tournament comes to a thrilling conclusion.
No-Limit Hold’em Main Event players sit down with a healthy stack of 1,000,000 chips and can purchase a single re-entry per flight before the conclusion of the 12th 20-minute level. Blinds start at 3,500/7,000/875a, and are still only 10,000/20,000/2,500a by the tenth level! Each Day 1 ends when only 15% of the field remains, with those surviving players heading to Day 2 with a min-cash locked in on top of any bounty payments they have collected along the way.
Pot-Limit Omaha specialists have their own Main Event. It also runs from May 7-29, and features six flights. Buying into the MILLIONS Online PLO Main Event sets you back $215 but finish on top of the pile and you will bank the lion’s share of the $100,000 guarantee.
Other numbered events to look forward to include a $215 buy-in $200,000 guaranteed 6-Max Championship, a $320 buy-in $250,000 guaranteed 7-Max Championship, and four special edition $109 Sunday Party’s, including two with guarantees boosted to $200,000. We know Team PartyPoker’s Patrick Leonard is looking forward to the MILLIONS Online KO Sunday Party tournaments as he won the standard versions on April 17 and again on April 24!
