This year’s partypoker MILLIONS online has been receiving plenty of hype over the course of the past few weeks and, now that it’s underway, the event is off to an amazing start. On Day 1A alone, the event has generated a $7 million prize pool.
The first flight of the event took place on Sunday, December 1, and it attracted 709 entries. This resulted in an impressive prize pool of just over $7 million. There are four more Day 1s in the event, and Day 1A has already generated over 35% of the $20 guaranteed million prize pool. So, we’re surely going to see the partypoker MILLIONs online surpass its guarantee.
In last year’s event, the total prize pool ended up being $21.8 million. If this year’s tournament is going to surpass that, another 1291 players will need to enter over the course of the four Day 1s. Judging by Day 1A’s attendance, that shouldn’t be too hard.
If that does happen, the 2019, partypoker MILLIONS online will be the biggest online poker event in history. To put things in perspective, take a look at the Top 5 biggest online poker tournaments so far:
- Partypoker MILLIONS Online in 2018: $21.8 million
- PokerStars’ Sunday Million Anniversary Edition in December 2011: $12.4 million
