Party Changes Structure of Caribbean Poker Party Promo

Caribbean Poker PartyFollowing player feedback, Party Poker has announced changes to the structure of its Caribbean Poker Party promotion. The changes take effect from today.

At the end of May, Party Poker announced a promotion that would reward players competing in the site´s Power Series tournaments each day with at least one $10,000 package to its Caribbean Poker Party in the Dominican Republic in October, plus dozens of satellite and sub-satellite tournament tickets.

Now, one month into the promotion, Party Poker has changed the structure of the promotion from daily to weekly – allowing the site to award more packages to players at Low and Medium buy-in levels, plus extending the number of winners in each leaderboard competition from ten to fifty.

The changes to the Caribbean Party Poker promotion are positive inasmuch as they will prevent the scenario in which the same players win the top prizes every day. The changes will also give a greater number of players the opportunity to qualify for the target event.

How the Promotion Works Now

Other than the changes from a daily leaderboard competition to a weekly leaderboard completion and the extended number of prizes, little else has changed. Players are awarded points for cashing in Party Poker´s Power Series tournaments based on their finishing position, the number of entries and the buy-in of the tournament. The points accumulate on one of three leaderboards:

  • The Low Leaderboard is for Power Series tournaments with buy-ins of $5.50 and $11.00.
  • The Medium Leaderboard is for Power Series tournaments with buy-ins of $22.00 and $55.00.
  • The High Leaderboard is for Power Series tournaments with buy-ins of $109.00 or more.

Please note that no points are awarded for playing in satellite events or phased tournaments and that satellite tickets won in the Caribbean Poker Party have no cash exchange value and will expire if not used after thirty days. The weekly leaderboard format starts today (Monday 26th June) and is scheduled to run until Sunday 13th August.

More Prizes for More Players

Whereas under the old structure, the best prize the winner of the Low Leaderboard Competition could win was a $109.00 Semi-Final Ticket, he or she will now win a $10,000 package to the Caribbean Poker Party. Two packages will be given away each week in the Medium Leaderboard Competition (rather than a $1,050 Final Ticket) and five packages will be up for grabs in the High Leaderboard Competition.

Position Low Leaderboard
1 $10K CPP Package
2 – 8 1 x $109 Semi-Final Ticket
9 – 15 3 x $22 CPP Feeder Ticket
16 – 22 2 x $22 CPP Feeder Ticket
23 – 29 1 x $22 CPP Feeder Ticket
30 – 50 2 x $5.50 CPP Mini Feeder Ticket
   
Position Medium Leaderboard
1 – 2 $10K CPP Package
3 – 8 1 x $1,050 Final Ticket

23 – 36 1 x $109 Semi-Final Ticket

44 – 50 1 x $22 CPP Feeder Ticket
   
Position High Leaderboard
1 – 5 $10K CPP Package
6 – 15 1 x $1,050 Final Ticket
16 – 22 3 x $109 Semi-Final Tickets
23 – 29 2 x $109 Semi-Final Tickets
30 – 50 1 x $109 Semi-Final Ticket

 

The CPP Packages are well worth winning. They consist of the $5,300 buy-in to the Party Poker MILLIONS Main Event, a week´s all-inclusive accommodation for two at the Melia Caribe Tropical in the Dominican Republic and $2,000 towards travel expenses. There are plenty of side events and leisure activities planned to ensure the week is as profitable and enjoyable as possible.

Easier than Ever Before to Qualify for the Caribbean Poker Party

The changes to the structure of the promotion will make it easier than ever before for low and medium buy-in tournament players to qualify for the Caribbean Poker Party. Furthermore, as the runner-up prizes are of a higher value than they were previously, the CPP Feeders and Semi-Finals will likely be better populated – resulting in more packages being given away in the weekly finals.
