partypoker Live 2018 to Feature $100 Million Guaranteed

This year saw the introduction of PartyPoker Live, a new addition to the live poker tournament landscape. The live experience also includes PartyPoker Millions, which gives players a shot at huge prizes after an initial buy-in.

The Millions scheme was introduced by PartyPoker to bring back some of the excitement of online poker in the early days, and the announcement of next year's prize guarantee of $100 million is sure to be enticing for poker fans and enthusiasts from all over the globe.

PartyPoker has also announced its schedule, which includes the Caribbean poker party and features events hosted at casinos around the world. There are also the PartyPoker Online Millions events for players who want to take part but can't attend any of the physical dates!

Putting Players First

President of PartyPoker Live, John Duthie, said:

“Since I joined PartyPoker in January, I’ve been thrilled to see PartyPoker really stick to its pledge to make live events all about the players. Putting players first is key to ensuring that the PartyPoker Live brand thrives and is well-respected, and it’s been great to be part of this.
"The response to the PartyPoker Millions series has been incredible and I think the increased prize pools next year are going to take the events to a whole new level. It’s going to be very exciting."

Mike Sexton, chairman of PartyPoker, was equally thrilled, adding:

"As PartyPoker Live’s flagship series, PartyPoker Millions has attracted a huge number of players in its first year and proved a resounding success. The Millions series has brought a great deal of excitement to the live and online poker world and really engaged players with a very competitive environment so I can’t wait to see the impact of even bigger prize pool guarantees in 2018.
"Check out the minimum pay-out of the $10,000,000 guaranteed Millions on the PartyPoker blog now, it’s absolutely incredible. At least three will get a million-dollar pay-out and everyone that cashes gets at least $10k!"

The Schedule

Even though there are buy-ins for these events, players can qualify for just over $1. With potential winnings of at least $10,000 for 250 players, and top takings on the table ranging from $5 to $10 million, these poker festivals are going to be very lucrative for a few skilled and lucky players.

Here's the schedule for the events running for the rest of this year and into 2018, as well as the guaranteed top prize money for each:

  • Caribbean Poker Party: runs from November 17 to 25 and has a guaranteed winning pot of $10,000,000.
  • Millions Online: The last one of 2017, this event runs from December 3 to 6, with a top prize of $5,000,000.
  • Millions Germany: The first event of 2018, this one is held at the King's Casino, Rozvadov, Germany. It runs from February 10 to 18, and there's a guaranteed €5,000,000 (or $5,800,000) on offer for the winner here.
  • Millions Grand Final: Sunny Barcelona in Spain is the location for this event, which will run from April 7 to 15, 2018. There’s €10,000,000 ($11,700,000) up for grabs at this tournament.
  • Millions North America: To be held at the Playground Poker Club, Canada, from April 21 to 29, this set-up features a guaranteed CAD $10,000,000 ($7,900,000) pot for the best player.
  • Millions Russia: Sochi, Russia, is where this event will take place. There's $5,000,000 up for the taking from August 4 to 12.
  • Millions UK: Dusk Till Dawn Casino in Nottingham will host the Millions UK event from September 20 to October 9. The top prize is a guaranteed £5,000,000 ($6,500,000).
  • Caribbean Poker Party: The Caribbean Poker Party, November 10 to 18, takes us back to the online event that kicked the whole festival off. It also has some of the highest prize money on offer too, with $10,000,000 guaranteed.

These events are accessible to all levels of players thanks to the low satellite buy-ins. This makes the online tournaments especially appealing if you're thinking of trying your hand at your first proper event.

Whether you're an avid poker fan or just a part-timer having some fun, they're promising to be exciting dates worth keeping an eye on as they unfold! In the meantime, be sure to check out everything else that PartyPoker has to offer!
