MILLIONS Online Will Return in 2019
A historic moment was created on December 4 as partypoker pulled off an incredible feat by setting the record for the biggest tournament in the history of online poker.
A total of 4367 entries were made across the five starting flights of the $5300 buy-in MILLIONS Online to create a mammoth prize pool of $21,835,000.
Portuguese player Manuel “Sheparentao” Ruivo living in the Netherlands took down the event last night with a massive $2,329,943 first-place prize which is also a record for the biggest prize ever awarded in an online poker tournament. He made a heads-up deal with Pim “ForMatherRussia” de Goede from Malta who also took home well over $2.3 million—the second biggest prize ever.
Two more players pocketed seven-figure prizes including the Slovenian player 'Scarmak3r’ who finished third for $1.3 million by qualifying via a $5.50 feeder satellite and winning almost 250,000 times the buy-in.
Apart from setting the record for the biggest online tournament prize pool and awarding the biggest prize, MILLIONS created several other mind blowing records.
Here are the following records which MILLIONS created:
- Biggest Online Tournament Prize Pool
- Biggest-ever Starting Flight in an Online Tournament
- Biggest Turnout for a $5k buy-in Online Tournament
- Awarded Biggest First-Place and Second-Place Prize in an Online Tournament
- Created Four Millionaires in a Single Online Tournament
- Awarded Biggest Prize Pool in Terms of Seats Guaranteed
- Total Chips Crossed Over $4.3 Billion
The room has already made its plan to host another MILLIONS Online tournament in 2019.
“...following on from the success of the 2018 $20,000,000 GTD MILLIONS Online. 2019 will end with another phenomenal MILLIONS Online festival, where multiple millionaires will be made,” party wrote on its website.
However, no further details have been revealed yet including what the guarantee will be. Looking at how it went down, partypoker could return MILLIONS Online with yet another $20 million guaranteed if not more.
If they do, we’ll find out soon.
