First POWERFEST in the post-HUD era
Although the final schedule hasn't been confirmed yet by the poker room, partypoker decided to "go all-in" with the new game scheme without HUDs and announced a new edition of its major tournament series: POWEREFEST. The first event will be played on Sunday, July 28th (one and a half month after the HUD prohibition), and as usual, some Championship events along with Deepstack, Turbo, and PKO tournaments will be played.
partypoker confirmed that POWERFEST SPINS would also be a part of the festival, which in the last edition had a GTD prize pool of $30M. The PKO events feature a rake-free bounty element, which in combination with our top-rakeback deal are an excellent choice for regs.
Micros Power Series Tournaments
Until June 23rd, low stakes players are welcomed to take advantage of the two (Micro and Super Micro) leaderboards designed to give away prizes for playing tournaments from $0,22 up to $4,40. In total 100 players (50 in each leaderboard) will get from $1 SPINS Ticket to $100 in cash. The promotion is running from June 10th to 16th and will start again on Monday 17th to Sunday 23rd. With this promotion, partypoker is answering the call from hundreds of low-stakes players, which usually cannot take advantage of the most significant poker room promotions.
Micros Leaderboard Payouts
|4-10||$10 SPINS ticket|
|11-20||$5 SPINS ticket|
|21-50||$1 SPINS Ticket|
A player won $1,000,000 in a $5 SPINS
This week, the life of the James "James23C" Carmichael's changed when he registered in a $5 SPINS at partypoker. The lucky player hit a 240,000x multiplier, so the prize tops up to $1,2M in total. James23C won the SnG tournament leaving "elielalbiter" and "nilverlobo" (both Latin-American players) with a $100,000 prize. Only 1 of 1M SPINS have a 240,000x multiplier, a 0,0001% chance. Keep in mind that the odds of being hit by lighting in the US in your lifetime is 1 in 3,000 (0,033%).
It's clear that partypoker wants to make the HUDs transition more gently. Embracing the anti-reg path is not only change a policy software but also host juicy promotions and sell the idea that you can suddenly become a millionaire. In just a month we'll see the impacts of the HUD prohibition, taking into account that the last partypoker tournament series had some fantastic overlays, will it happen again?
