Looking ahead to the partypoker LIVE MILLIONS tour 2019
It has been a little over two years since I was appointed the President of partypoker LIVE and it has been a roller-coaster of a ride from day one.
Improvements we’ve made based on player feedback
The partypoker LIVE MILLIONS tour has gone from strength-to-strength after hard work from the entire partypoker LIVE team and the support from partypoker. One of the reasons for our amazing growth has been the fact we listen to our customers, take on board their comments and act on them so we can create a live poker tour our customers want to play on.
We increased the buy-in for MILLIONS Main Events from $5,300 to $10,300 for the majority of the 2019 season because we wanted to return to a freezeout format. The main reason for this was because players had been growing disheartened with the re-buy format and this system was benefiting players who had large, or sometimes unlimited bankrolls. In turn, this led to those who had qualified via online satellites and won packages being at more of a disadvantage.
My personal highlight – MILLIONS South America in Rio de Janeiro
Live poker tournaments have to be fun and have plenty of activities to enjoy away from the tables. That’s why we decided to run the MILLIONS South America festival. I personally don’t play in MILLIONS events, but if I did I wouldn’t miss Rio.
It’s the first time we’ve taken the live tour here and it’s an exciting location in a spectacular venue in the Copacabana Palace Hotel situated right on the beach front. For those unfortunate players who bust the tournaments, there’ll be plenty to see and do. There’s not long to go until the start of the festival, so time is running out to win a package on partypoker. It promises to be a fantastic start to the MILLIONS tour this year.
If you’re dreaming of heading to Rio, feeders are available online at partypoker from $3.30 for this event and increase to the $1,050 weekly Sunday final. You can also use PP LIVE Dollars towards your buy-in and expenses. You can find the full schedule and details here. We want to give players of all bankroll an opportunity to play at these events so start small if you need to.
Those of you who are on the fence about playing in a MILLIONS event should just do it. With so many low stakes feeders and satellites available, you could be playing for potentially life-changing money for a small initial outlay. Good luck.
