It’s that time of the year when partypoker starts to focus on their MILLIONS UK event, and this year they’ve come up with a £5,000,000 (that’s US $6,542,148) guaranteed prizefund for the 9-day poker extravaganza at the Dusk Till Dawn Casino in Nottingham…

The partypoker LIVE tour started only last year, but it has already become an integral part of the world poker circuit – and their MILLIONS stops are the cream of the crop, the Sochi stop due to kick off this week, while satellites and inventive promotions are on offer for next month’s UK version



The partypoker MILLIONS UK

Last year saw a sensational Main Event, Argentinian Maria Lampropulos scooping the £1million ($1,255,004) first prize ahead of a field which boasted Stephen Chidwick, Igor Kurganov and Mike Sexton among the deep runners…

To spice things up again this year, partypoker are throwing in a couple of big money incentives over and above the £5 million guarantee:

  • The top 10 finishers will also receive a £5300 buy-in for the partypoker MILLIONS Online festival to be held in the run-up to Christmas this year, as the site strives to bring their two fields of interest closer together,
  • In addition, the first 100 players to buy into the MILLIONS UK Main Event using PP LIVE Dollars will automatically take part in an exclusive last longer, the winner walking off with $100,000 cash on top of any tournament winnings - the PP LIVE $ another innovative way to allow players flexibility as you can see below…


Mike Sexton taking partypoker to new levels

Under the stewardship of Chairman Mike Sexton, the site has been gunning for the top of the fans’ list of excellent tournaments and well-run events, both live and virtual, PokerTube catching up with Sexton this week to discuss that and much more besides…

…as well as news that Bruno Fitoussi has been signed up to join fellow French poker legend Betrand ‘ElkY’ Grospellier as a site ambassador for their live European events.
