And now, their innovation is starting to reach into the live scene as well as they introduce $1,000,000 Live Tournament Leaderboard.
MY PP LIVE $$$
Starting in January 2018, you will be able to compete in daily and weekly satellites and win LIVE $$$ instead of tickets.
That means you will have more freedom on how you use your satellite winnings. And you also won’t be limited to an exact event or service. You will be able to use your LIVE $$$ buy-ins to any Partypoker event as well as hotel and travel.
The eligible event include MILLIONS, Country Championships, Grand Prix’s and Partypoker sponsored events such as WSOP Brazil.
“We’ve spent a lot of this year listening to players and one of the most common criticisms about the online to LIVE satellite route has always been getting locked into specific events when circumstances may change. Enter partypoker LIVE $$$. These can be used to buy in to any partypoker LIVE event worldwide and also to pay for travel and accommodation. They will have no expiry date. This gives players such freedom! To launch partypoker LIVE $$$ we’re going create a Leaderboard in 2018 with $1,000,000 being divvied up between the top players. We’d rather give money to our customers than spend it on advertising. I hope you love this idea as much as I do.” Stated the President of partypoker LIVE, John Duthie.
$1,000,000 Live Tournament Leaderboard
To add even more excitement to the new system, there will also be a special LIVE $$$ Leaderboard. It will award players with their share of a $1,000,000 prize pool.
partypoker ambassador Patrick Leonard said: “I’ve always liked leaderboards. I first started playing tournaments because I wanted to reach number 1 in the world on pocket fives, I played every day and it was really fun to have extra competition. When I spoke to the guys about the possibility of a $1m leaderboard it made me think of the good old days of poker. Thankfully it seems like the good days are back.”
