Three of the six flights scheduled for the PartyPoker MILLIONS Online KO Main Event are complete and dusted, with the remaining three taking place May 28-29. Time is running out fast if you want to get into the mix and have any chance of snagging the lion’s share of the $500,000 guaranteed prize pool.
In those three starting days, some 515 of your fellow PartyPoker players have purchased or won their place in the $530 MILLIONS Online KO Main Event. However, at the time of writing, only 78 of those starters have punched their Day 2 tickets, locking in minimal cash for their efforts and any bonuses they’ve collected along the way.
