September sees the summer haze fade away as the sun takes more of a back seat, and it’s time to retreat indoors… But who cares? Poker fans certainly don’t! In fact, any poker player worth their salt will be licking their lips at the prospect of kicking back and taking full advantage of the latest edition of the partypoker extravaganza that is MILLIONS Online, an action-packed tournament series that’s guaranteed to keep the proverbial juices flowing from 1-26 September.
It’s called Party for a reason, and there’ll be plenty of fun from start to finish, with as many as 15 enormous tournament events boasting a total guaranteed payout of over $6,000,000… Life-changing sums are there for the taking, not least the nose-bleed $2,000,000 up for grabs in the $3,200 buy-in Main Event. It’s almost a cliché when so much money is at stake to suggest that players are going for glory when sitting down to play these major, so-called blue-ribon events of the poker world, but this is indeed one of those tournaments that we all would like to win. As usual, the everyman approach adopted by partypoker means that big buy-ins don’t mean big money events are available only to those with bulging bankrolls – a comprehensive satellite set-up means that anyone can throw their poker cap in the ring.
Be In It to Win It
The Main Event is absolutely worth trying to qualify for. It’s not just the money and fame that makes the tournament attractive, but the structure, too, is very user-friendly. Players start with 1,000,000 chips and the 20-minute Blinds kick off at 2,500/5,000 with a 625 ante. This translates to a healthy 25BB starting stack for those seeking to dive in all guns blazing when late registration ends at the end of the 12th level! With SIX Day 1 flights to have a go at, it’s even possible to enter the fray via a turbo-structured qualifier as late as the evening of Day 2 on 26 September, and a nice touch is that the clock then extends to 30-minutes, as befits such a prestigious event.
Meanwhile, there’s a host of other tournaments in which to make your presence felt, with buy-ins starting at $109 for those happy to forego the cut-price qualification route. The $1,575 buy-in $250,000 GTD Opener PKO, for example, gives players the chance to really rack up those dollars in bounties, and the $162 buy-in Mini Opener PKO has a far from mini GTD prize pool of $100,000. The $530 Super 500 will pay out at least $500,000, and the $109 buy-in Super 100 has a super $300,000 on offer.
Given the fact that it’s possible to win tournament seats for a teeny weeny 1c, the MILLIONS Online Party is a real money poker shindig there’s no excuse for missing out on.

Note that every one of the 15 scheduled MILLIONS Online events has numerous Day 1 flights across various start times so that you’ll be able to find a time slot that suits. Furthermore, reduced late registration and single re-entry per flight emphasises the partypoker philosophy that helps maintain a level playing field for all.
Make Day 2, Make the Money
It’s nice to be able to battle through to Day 2 of an event and know that a prize is already in the bag, and that’s exactly the set-up during MILLIONS Online at partypoker. Once a Day 1 tournament is down to the last 15% of the field, play ends and these remaining players go through to Day 2, with everyone guaranteed at least a min cash.
