MILLIONS Online, partypoker’s audacious $20 million guaranteed event is returning for its second edition this Sunday for a double-sized buy-in $10,300.
Like last year, this massive event will create four millionaires in a single online tournament, meaning if you finish at the top four, you’re likely to be paid out $1 million or even more.
To further up the ante, partypoker has announced an extra $1 million chip leader bonus. Should the chip leader of Day 1A go on to win the tournament, partypoker will credit his or her account with an additional $1 million cash.
You will see in the bottom right hand corner a Diamond icon with the amount of diamonds that you have earned. In this case it is 17.
There are two things diamonds can be spent on: throwing objects at each other and being able to view “ rabbit cards” which is where you can look at the cards that would have been dealt (if the hand hadn’t ended early). Players can look out for flying pigeons, taxis and fishing rods, boxing gloves and more once Diamonds have been accumulated.
The update will roll out to other game types later in 2020.
Here we take a sneak peak below at the emojis that will be available for players to use. As you can see there is generic happy, sad and crying faces that go all the way up to the more poker-specific devils horns and violin.
In a fun twist these emojis are animated when deployed at the table. There is also canned chat, offering predefined message so that players can interact with each other. Stock phrases such as “wow,” “brutal,” and lets go will all be available at the time of launch.
Players that go “all in” will get to experience fireworks around their avatar.
Certainly the most noticeable new update to partypoker’s new mobile app is its new portrait design instead of the standard landscape. And this is not optional—this is the only orientation now at the Spins tables, and soon it will come to other games too.
The advantage of portrait is it is much easier to play one-handed, and switching between poker and other apps is much easier.
Even more ambitious is that* partypoker has a 4-way split screen view.* This is not just a static view—you can actually make decisions when in this view. On the phone this is probably a bit tricky (unless you have a monster “phablet” device), but it is still a great overview screen to jump between tables. But this feature really comes into its own on tablet devices.
This is not the first time an online poker operator has tried mobile poker in portrait rather than landscape, but it is probably the most established operator to try it, and the 4-way split screen looks unique to us. What do you think, step forward or step back?
