    PartyPoker has announced its schedule for the 2018 MILLIONS series. Events will run in North America, Russia, the Caribbean and Europe as well as online. The poker room is offering over $100,000,000 in guaranteed prize pools. The promotion is starting now and will be until December 2018 – including the forthcoming Caribbean Poker Party in Punta Cana in November.

    Since its launch at the start of this year, PartyPoker MILLIONS has become one of the biggest and most successful poker series. With record breaking prize pool guarantees and countless ways to qualify online for very small buy-ins, MILLIONS events have proved a massive hit across the globe.

    For 2018 year PartyPoker is planning to improve the promotion series even more. All next year’s events will have guaranteed prize pools of at least $5,000,000. At the $10,000,000 guarantee stops, three players will become millionaires. The winner in the main tourney will grab $1.4 million. The runner-up and third-place finisher will take home $1.2 million and $1 million respectively, and at least 250 players will be paid, with a minimum payout of €10,000.

    Next year’s MILLIONS program includes new stops at Casino Barcelona, as well as return visits to Kings Casino in the Czech Republic, Playground Poker Club in Canada, Sochi in Russia and Dusk Till Dawn in the UK along with a brand new venue for the Caribbean Poker Party.

    PartyPoker MILLIONS has a great success in Russia. This year there were 1,170 entries for the $1,000,000 guarantee event in Sochi. The $5,000,000 guaranteed MILLIONS main event also broke record when it returned in September for the largest event in CIS history with 999 players. In 2018, PartyPoker LIVE returns to Sochi for another $5,000,000 guaranteed prizepool at Russia’s popular all-year-round resort. The event will run from August 4th to 12th.

    Next year’s PartyPoker MILLIONS UK event is taking place at the famous Dusk Till Dawn club in Nottingham from September 29th to October 9th. Following a highly successful event this year, the event returns with a prizepool of £5,000,000 ( $6,500,000 USD).

    PartyPoker is soon expected to announce where the Caribbean Poker Party will be. So far only dates are clear: 10th to 18th November.

    PartyPoker LIVE president John Duthie said: “Since I joined PartyPoker in January, I’ve been thrilled to see it really stick to its pledge to make live events all about the players. Putting players first is key to ensuring that the PartyPoker LIVE brand thrives and is well-respected, and it’s been great to be part of this. The response to the PartyPoker MILLIONS series has been incredible and I think the increased prize pools next year are going to take the events to a whole new level. It’s going to be very exciting.”

    PartyPoker Chairman Mike Sexton added: “PartyPoker LIVE’s flagship series, MILLIONS has attracted a huge number of players in its first year and proved a resounding success. The MILLIONS series has brought a great deal of excitement to the live and online poker world and really engaged players with a very competitive environment so I can’t wait to see the impact of even bigger prize pool guarantees in 2018!”
