partypoker $500K Giveaway Accompanies Change of Screen Names

A software update at partypoker will require players to change their online monikers on June 17. In support of the screen name switcheroo, the player-friendly poker site will hand out $500,000 in cash.

The big money giveaway is part of a ‘Race to Alias’ promo that will take place during a 24-hour period beginning at 09:00 BST (10:00 CET) on June 17, 2019. On that date, players will be prompted with a pop-up window advising them to select a new alias.

All players MUST select a new name and the new monikers will be awarded on a first come, first served basis. Remember to keep it clean, folks, as any screen names deemed to be offensive will not be permitted.

$500K Up for Grabs

While the race will be on to secure desired player names, prizes up to $10,000 via ‘Login Click Cards’ will be awarded randomly once players have chosen their new alias. Also in the giveaway mix are ‘Hourly Click Cards’ and between $10,000 and $40,000 simply for playing and accumulating at least 0.10 loyalty points each hour.

Players who manage to earn qualifying tickets thru the ‘Login’ or ‘Hourly’ Click Card offers will take part in exclusive ‘$10K Freerolls’.

"I encourage everyone to log in and update their player name on June 17 to take advantage of the huge $500,000 giveaway!” stated partypoker Player Panel member Patrick Leonard.

The latest software update began with a redesigned hand replayer that features optimized controls, coupled with a simplified dashboard. That upgrade has already been implemented, with the player alias change next in line on the global .com client software revamp schedule.

Players located within the Czech Republic are excluded from the $500K promo and will instead participate in their own version of Race to Alias worth $25,000 in prizes.

More Changes Coming

“This client update is one of a number of initiatives that we are working on in order to provide players with a safe environment where they can play online poker," said partypoker managing director Tom Waters.

That environment will prevent the use of third-party tracking tools. Requiring new screen names is part of the process that will keep players from being tracked and will allow all players "to have a fresh start," Waters added.

Players can expect more software update announcements in the near future.
