partypoker MILLIONS Online

In December 2017, partypoker announced it would be bringing back the partypoker MILLIONS Online for a second year. The event has been hyped up for a full year with partypoker guaranteeing a record-breaking $20 million prize pool.

The lofty guarantee already guaranteed that this event would feature the largest prize pool in online poker history. The guarantee was smashed with the five opening flights on Nov. 25 to Dec. 4 attracting a massive field of 4,367 entrants to generate a mouth-watering $21,385,000 prize pool.
