The Partypoker Millions Tour will make debuts in Cyprus and London in 2020 and the new season heralds the introduction of the ‘Millions Passport’ that will make qualifying for events online easier than ever.
Each main event on the Millions Tour for 2020 will feature a buy-in of $5,300 (pounds in UK, euros in Prague), with $109 buy-in Millions Passport satellites running on Partypoker using a ‘phased’ format, where players carry their chips through to a weekly final held on Sundays.
The Sunday finals offer no direct buy-in option, meaning all $10,000 packages will be won by players entering the $109 satellites.
Each Millions Tour event is held at a luxury destination where passport holders will experience true VIP treatment, enjoying luxury hotel rooms and exclusive extras off the felt with a total retail value of at least $11,000 per event.
In 2020 the tour will visit Cyprus, Las Vegas, London and The Bahamas, with Prague pencilled in for 2021.
Passport holders will also be eligible to play Partypoker’s flagship annual online event, Millions Online with their passport and will receive more than $11,000 of Millions Online event buy-ins instead of expenses should they opt to participate in the online leg.
The London Hilton on Park Lane will play host to Millions London in August 2020, where there will be no direct buy-in offered to the £5,300 event. Only players holding Millions passports or those who win direct satellites will be eligible to register for this exclusive event.
VIP guests will be invited to play the event and the seat draw will be designed so that every table features at least one VIP invited guest seated from the start of the tournament.
Partypoker Live president John Duthie, said: “The introduction of the Passport for Millions events in 2020 is the result of player feedback and is also aimed at the amateur game. Players can now win a package and choose their event through the passport – for example, a player can secure their package for the Millions Caribbean Poker Party this month which was never an option before. We have also introduced a number of additional measures we believe helps recreational and amateur players.”
