MILLIONS South America is the first MILLIONS event to take place in the samba capital of the world, in a city famous for its extravagant carnivals and features the first MILLIONS Main Event to be held in South America.
Copacabana Palace Hotel is located on the seafront of the famous Copacabana Beach, you know, the one Barry Manilow sang about in 1978. The luxurious hotel features the Michelin-starred MEE Restaurant, Ristornante Hotel Cipriani, a half-Olympic-sized swimming pool and 239 rooms and suites. Of course, if you fancy chilling out you will only be a short walk away from the gorgeous sands of the Copacabana beach.
The MILLIONS South America Main Event takes place between March 20th and March 25th. The event costs $10,300 to buy into, but you could be jetting off to sunny Brazil armed with a $12,000 MILLIONS South America package thanks to the satellites running right now online at partypoker.
