partypoker MILLIONS live 2019
Five stops are confirmed of the partypoker MILLIONS live tour for 2019; the first one was already played in Brazil on last March, and right now the MILLIONS North America is being played in Montreal, Canada; European and Caribbean events were also announced, and last week partypoker added a new stop: MILLIONS Vegas. Each event features a GTD prize pool of $5M at least (for example, the Caribbean Poker Party has a $10M GTD prize pool). The MILLIONS live tour ends with a massive online event with $20M GTD which is scheduled for December.
MILLIONS Vegas at Aria: Special Edition
After the poker Black Friday, the US market has always been a challenge for online poker rooms. PokerStars and partypoker are engaged in a fight to get the best of the new regulations, and now with the announcement of MILLIONS Vegas, a standalone event with $5M GTD, partypoker is raising the bar and even it's challenging the WSOP because the MILLIONS Vegas is played during this year edition and ends only one day before WSOP Main Event begins (MILLIONS Vegas is scheduled for 28th June - 2nd July).
The Aria Resort & Casino will host the $10,300 event and partypoker is offering a satellite program where players can win an entry for only $11. PP Live Members are invited to play a freeroll event (14 events that end with a grand Final Phase) with one entry GTD for the MILLIONS Vegas and secondary prizes in PP Live Dollars, the digital currency created by partypoker for its live poker events; the Aria will host satellites from $550 up to $2,060.
MILLIONS Vegas will have two initial flights and after that other two days of action that ends at the Final Day on Tuesday, July 2nd, and it's so far the largest live event sponsored by partypoker in the USA, taking advantage of the partnership with ARIA casino signed a few months ago. In the words of Sean McCormack, Director of Poker Operations at ARIA:
“We’re looking forward to MILLIONS making its debut this summer at the resort. Our team is excited to add an event of this magnitude to our extensive summer schedule.”
