You may have seen some teaser images on our social media channels over the past few weeks where we talked about partypoker LIVE. Now it is time to reveal what partypoker LIVE is and what it means to you, our valued players.
partypoker is launching a brand new live tour in 2017 that is headlined by the partypoker Million. Each of these partypoker Million events has a $5,000 buy-in and multi-million dollar prize pools. Our first confirmed stop is at the awesome Playground Poker Club in Montreal, Canada during May, which features a massive CAD$5 million guaranteed prize pool with CAD$1 million guaranteed for the tournament’s champion, all for a CAD$5,000 buy-in.
The tour will head to several destinations around the globe during 2017, with the remaining locations and dates to be announced soon.
To help launch the partypoker Million at Playground Poker Club, we are giving the first 100 players to reach an online Day 1 a cash bonus of CAD$550 to use towards their travel and other expenses. These funds are added value for players and not removed from the CAD$5 million prize pool. Online satellites are in the partypoker tournament lobby right now.
Phil Sabbah, CMO of Playground Poker Club, said: “We are thrilled to be hosting the first partypoker Million with our online partner, partypoker. Kicking off the tour in Montreal, Canada gives all the North American players a first look at the amazing events partypoker will offer in 2017. We will also be featuring live phase 1’s in the club for all our players.”
The new partypoker LIVE tour will also host partypoker Million Nationals which will have a buy-in of $1,000 and guaranteed prizepools in excess of $500,000. These will be supported by the successful Grand Prix Poker Tour events with the same low buy-ins and high payouts for recreational poker players that were run across football stadiums in the UK in 2016.
Group Head of partypoker Tom Waters said: “Listening to feedback from the players at the Caribbean Poker Party it was clear that there was a desire for events that not only offer high guaranteed prizepools but also fun off the felt. With the 2017 partypoker LIVE events schedule, there will be something for everyone! Online qualifiers start from $0.01 on partypoker giving players the opportunity to travel all over the world to take part in some amazing events.”
