Online poker update: partypoker MILLIONS, 888 Pick'Em and more

In this article, we share with our players the latest 2018 promotions and the results of the major online events as the partypoker MILLIONS.

partypoker MILLIONS results

The partypoker MILLIONS 2018 ended last week. After a huge campaign to promote the tournament series, a total of $21,835,000 were awarded in the Main Event, establishing a record, although we spotted several overlays on the satellites campaign especially on the last days prior to the tournament.

Manuel “Sheparentao” Ruivo from Portugal took home $2,329,944 for winning the tournament and Pim “ForMatherRussia” de Goede from Germany $2,309,994 for the second position after a deal among the two players. The third position deserves an additional mention, as the Slovenian player "Scarmak3r" classified to the tournament via a $5 satellite and won $1,364,688, a 272,000% ROI. The partypoker MILLIONS is now part of the online poker history and the question now is whether if partypoker will host another version in 2019 and how the competitors will react to its results, specially PokerStars who saw its previous record smashed (WCOOP 2010, $2,278,097.50 won by Tyson “POTTERPOKER” Marks).

partypoker Wheel

partypoker launched a new promotion for low stakes players, called "partypoker Wheel". Each week if a poker player makes less than 25 points (1 point is awarded for every $1 paid on rake). According to the 40% cashback program of partypoker, a poker player with 25 points will receive $5 (20% as rakeback) and one with 1,200 points will receive $480 (40% rakeback). Now, for getting at least 5 points and less than 25, the poker players will have a chance to get prizes on a wheel:

  • 5 to 9.99 Points = 1 spin
  • 10 to 19.99 = 2 spins
  • 20 to 24.99= 5 spins

And the prizes on the wheel are:

  • 1 Cashback Point
  • 2 Cashback Points
  • $1 Cash
  • $3 Cash
  • $1 Sit & Go Jackpot ticket
  • $3 Sit & Go Jackpot tickets
  • $2.20 MTT Ticket (= 2 x $1.10)
  • Casino Spins

Certainly, good news for low-stakes players who are looking to build a bankroll in partypoker.

888Poker announces Pick'Em 8

A new poker/casino game will be launched soon at 888Poker as announced by the news portal Pokerfuse. The new format was confirmed in the past months and it was described as “a fun, fast & strategic game... an enjoyable game with no direct opponents, it’s a great chance to multiply your bet in just a few minutes!". 

As far as we know, in the beginning, the players will choose 2-hole cards among 8 cards and then the software will automatically show 5 cards and the players with the strongest hands will share a prize (several players will be choosing its hole cards at the same time). This new poker format is, of course, another attempt of 888Poker to bring more recreational players to the tables and should not be a surprise, as having a good field is key for the room.

Conclusion

2018 is a top year for online poker. The impressive result of the partypoker MILLIONS and new poker formats being announced almost every two months by the major poker rooms, clearly shows that the industry is struggling hard against regulations and is having good results.

We are sure that the next year the poker industry development will follow the path created by the effort of the major sites in 2018.
