It's the growing poker room's flagship online festival and the latest iteration consists of more than 250 tournaments that will pay out at least $30 million in guaranteed prize money. Headlining the POWERFEST series is the $25,500 buy-in $2,500,000 GTD championship set for the final day of the festival on Sunday, April 14.

Players of all bankroll sizes will find plenty of tournaments to choose from in POWERFEST as buy-ins are spread out over a wide range starting as low as $5.50 and maxing out at $25,500. There are five different categories of events: Low, Mid, High, High Roller and Super High Roller.

A bunch of different formats and structures are offered as well. The formats include 6-Max, 8-Max, and Mix-Max, while players can select structures that are slow, turbo, hyper-turbo, deepstack and progressive knockout.

Championship Events

New champions will emerge at POWERFEST where a handful of Championship Events are scheduled, with winners set to receive special trophies to commemorate their victories. The five Championship Events will pay out $6.5 million in guaranteed prize money.

Buy-ins for the Championship tournaments start at $320, but there are plenty of satellites available to win a seat for much cheaper than that. The Championship Events each guarantee prize money of at least $1 million. Here's the Championship schedule that includes the date, event no., guarantee, structure and buy-in:

April 4 #21-SHR $1M GTD 8-Max $10,300
April 11 #54-SHR $2.5M GTD 8-Max $25,500
April 14 #69-SHR $1M GTD 8-Max $5,200
April 14 #70-HR $1M GTD 8-Max PKO $2,100
April 14 #70-H $1M GTD 8-Max PKO $320

You'll notice the last Championship Event is a $320 buy-in listed in the High category. This edition of POWERFEST features 14 tournaments with a $320 entry fee and big prize pools, with tons of mega satellites and qualifiers on tap to grab a seat at a fraction of the buy-in.


partypoker is running a special SPINS promotion during POWERFEST that offers the top prize of a $25,500 POWERFEST ticket! There are two POWERFEST SPINS buy-ins, $5 & $50, and both can get you a POWERFEST seat in a matter of minutes.

Playing at the $5 buy-in level offers cash prizes of $10 and $20, as well as a range of POWERFEST tickets from $33 to $530. The $50 buy-in SPINS will award the winner with cash prizes of $100 or $200, or POWERFEST tickets from $530 up to $25,500.

It all depends on the multiplier that appears after three players buy-in to SPINS. That $25,500 POWERFEST ticket is a 510x multiplier!

Are you ready for POWERFEST starting this Sunday at partypoker? More than $3.7 million in prize money will be awarded on the first day.
