The dream of becoming a professional poker player is very much alive at Party Poker where a new promotion entitled $500,000 MILLIONS Passport will send a winning player to fabulous destinations worldwide to compete in high stakes poker tournaments for huge prize money.
Running from September 10-30, the promo is designed to reward a successful online poker player by giving him or her the means and backing to transition to live action at poker venues the world over. It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity for poker fame and stardom, allowing the winner to rub elbows with the big boys (and girls) of poker for an entire year.
The $500,000 MILLIONS Passport promotion is centered around Party Poker’s MILLIONS Online satellites. Those satellites provide winners with seats to the $20 million guaranteed MILLIONS Online that’s set to begin on November 25 and be the biggest tournament ever in the history of online poker.
The MILLIONS Online has a buy-in of $5,300, but the aforementioned satellites offer seats for a fraction of the entry fee. The satellites are running daily start from just one penny, giving poker players of modest means who dream of having the opportunity to play as a pro – even for just one year – the chance to do so.
To be eligible for this promo, players must first win a seat to the $5,300 MILLIONS Online event via the satellites offered between Sept. 10-30 at Party Poker. The next step is to win the $20 million GTD MILLIONS tournament that runs from Nov. 25 thru Dec. 5.
The first-place prize of the $5,300 MILLIONS Online event is a whopping $2.5 million, plenty money enough to turn pro and stake yourself to future events both live and online. However, the winner won’t have to spend a nickel of that $2,500,000 toward poker for a full year, but will instead receive the $500,000 MILLIONS Passport on top of the huge prize money.
The $500,000 MILLIONS Passport package includes the following for one year:
- Buy-ins for MILLIONS Main Events
- Buy-ins for MILLIONS High Rollers
- Buy-ins for MILLIONS Super High Rollers
- Travel expenses for two to poker venues
- $5,000 in spending money for each event
- Luxury hotel accommodations for two at each event
As is obvious, the winner will live the life of a professional poker player for one full year, traveling the Party Poker circuit and enjoying the destinations at every tour stop visited. The $500,000 MILLIONS Passport will expire on December 31, 2019.
$25,000 MILLIONS Passport Prize
Should a MILLIONS Online satellite winner not win the $20M guaranteed MILLIONS Online tournament, then there will be no $500,000 MILLIONS Passport awarded. However, Party Poker will instead reward the satellite winner who runs deepest in the MILLIONS Online event with a $25,000 MILLIONS Passport.
That prize is good for $25,000 in MILLIONS event buy-ins throughout 2019. Although other expenses such as travel and lodging are not covered in the $25,000 MILLIONS Passport prize, players are certainly able to pay for those expenses from winnings obtained in Party Poker’s PP LIVE Dollars satellites.
PP LIVE Dollars is Party Poker’s very own currency. Daily satellites permit players to win the special currency and use it for all expenses pertaining to the Party Poker LIVE tour.
Four Times the Fun
The 2018 MILLIONS Online is a can’t miss event, with the guaranteed prize pool quadrupled from last year’s $5,000,000 GTD. Jon Van Fleet (“sordykrd”) claimed first place prize money of $1,027,000 in 2017. This year’s record-breaking MILLIONS Online tournament will make millionaires out of the top 4 finishers.
And don’t forget, if the MILLIONS Online winner obtained his or her seat via a MILLIONS Online satellite, then the $500,000 MILLIONS Passport will be a cherry on top!
