Partypoker has confirmed that its extravagant & audacious online tournament, MILLIONS Online, will make a comeback for its fourth edition next year in February.
The announcement was made last week after the operator in conjunction with the World Poker Tour (WPT) announced plans for all the live and online events that will be taking place at partypoker in 2021.
“It’s confirmed – MILLIONS Online is returning in February 2021, and it’s time for you to claim your seat,” the operator’s MILLIONS Online webpage states.
The upcoming edition of the MILLIONS Online will be the operator’s fourth edition of MILLIONS Online. It debuted in 2017 with $5 million in guarantees for a buy-in of $5300.
A year later the tournament returned with the same buy-in but four times bigger guarantee than the inaugural edition of $20 million making it the richest online poker tournament at that time.
Despite its ultra-ambitious guarantee, the tournament easily covered its $20 million guarantee attracting 4367 total entries to build a prize pool of $21.8 million.
It repeated the same performance in 2019 beating its $20 million guarantee again but fell shy short of the 2018 record.
The exact dates are expected to be announced soon although as per partypoker’s LIVE website, MILLIONS Online 2021 is tentatively scheduled to run from February 7 to 24. The buy-in will move back to the $5300 price point.
It also remains to be seen whether the tournament will sport another $20 million guarantee as it did in the previous two outings.
As seen every year, there will be plenty of side events running alongside the MILLIONS Online with further details to be announced soon.
Satellites are already underway at partypoker with buy-ins starting as low as 50 cents.
