MILLIONS Online KO returns to PartyPoker in May and we can’t wait to get the show on the road. The latest installment of the hugely popular MILLIONS Online KO features ten action-packed, numbered, progressive elimination events that have buy-ins from $55 to $530 and combined guaranteed prize pools that total north of $1.9 million ! Add to that dozens of side events, and it’s easy to see why PartyPoker is the online poker site to play in May if you like PKO events.
May 4th, which some of you call Star Wars Day (May the 4th be with you, right?), is your first opportunity to dive into the MILLIONS Online KO program. Costing $162 to enter and boasting a guaranteed prize pool of $100,000, the Opener is the perfect way to kick off the festival. There are six Day 1s left before the crowning of the champion on May 8.
$500,000 Guaranteed MILLIONS Online Main Event
There are also six flights for the highly anticipated MILLIONS Online KO Main Event, a $530 buy-in tournament with half a million dollars guaranteed to be won. Day 1A mixes and trades at 7:05 p.m. BST on May 7, with subsequent Day 1s running concurrently on the next three Sundays. Two last chance steals take place on May 29, when the tournament also ends in thrilling fashion.
Players in the No-Limit Hold’em Main Event sit down with a healthy stack of 1,000,000 chips and can purchase a single re-entry per flight before the 12th 20-minute level ends. The blinds start at 3,500/7,000/875a and are still only 10,000/20,000/2,500a at the tenth level! Each day 1 ends when only 15% of the field remains, with surviving players heading into day 2 with min-cash locked in on top of any bounty payouts they’ve collected along the way.
Pot-Limit Omaha specialists have their own Main Event. It also runs from May 7 to 29 and includes six flights. Buying into the MILLIONS Online PLO Main Event costs you $215, but finish at the top of the pile and you’ll get the lion’s share of the $100,000 guarantee.
Other numbered events to expect include a $200,000 Guaranteed 6-Max Championship with a $215 buy-in, a $250,000 Guaranteed 7-Max Championship with a $320 buy-in and four special editions Sunday Party at $109, including two with guarantees increased to $200,000.
