The side events are not the only changes in store for the 2019 edition of the MILLIONS Online. The buy-in has been upped from $5,300 to $10,300, putting it right in step with all of the 2019 partypoker LIVE MILLIONS Main Events that feature a $10K entry fee.

“Following the success of last year’s MILLIONS Online we’ve decided to keep the $20M guarantee, however, we wanted to bring the full MILLIONS live experience online and offer a host of side events alongside the Main Event, providing players with an exciting new online festival under the prestigious MILLIONS brand," stated partypoker managing director Tom Waters.

Players can expect a satellite schedule that encompasses a wide range of stake levels in support of the 2019 MILLIONS Online, making it possible for lots of players to win a seat to the massive event at a fraction of the buy-in.

History Made

The 2018 MILLIONS Online was a huge undertaking for partypoker, as the growing poker room increased the guarantee four-fold from the previous year - from $5 million to $20 million. It looked at first as though players who entered would enjoy a big overlay, but a late surge on the tail end of Day 1s saw the guarantee reached - and passed.

The result was prize money totaling $21,835,000 and the record for the largest online poker tournament. It shattered PokerStars' old record of $12,423,200.

With a larger buy-in and an extensive satellite schedule, we may see a new online poker tournament record this year. The 2019 MILLIONS Online will have the distinction of being the largest ever online $10K+ buy-in event.

“I'm excited that partypoker are bringing back MILLIONS Online this year and the best news is they have added even more events to the schedule," stated site ambassador Fedor Holz. “Last year I outlasted my partypoker teammates but this year I'll be looking to go one better and take down the trophy!”

Fedor can begin his quest on Sunday, December 1 when the first of multiple starting fights begin. The $20M GTD MILLIONS Online will play to a conclusion on Tuesday, December 10.
