partypoker has increased the guarantee of its showpiece Sunday Major on Sunday May 11 from the usual $200k guaranteed to a $500k guaranteed Special Event. First prize is also guaranteed to be a minimum of $100k.
This marks the largest guaranteed event to take place at partypoker.com for more than a year. It is offered in response to players’ demand for larger tournaments and richer prize pools on the site. When players ask, we listen!
The $500K guaranteed Special Event starts at 14:00 ET on Sunday 11 May. The fee is $200 and registration will be open until the end of level 9 (each level is 20 minutes, so late registration will be open for 3 hours).
Players will have the opportunity to buy-in directly or qualify through a wide range of satellites that are running online now. This will include a 100 Seat guaranteed Mega-Satellite at 10.30 ET on the day of the tournament, Sunday May 11. The buy-in will be just $5.
There are also a significant number of super-satellites and freerolls for players wanting a piece of the bumper prizepool. New customers to partypoker will receive 5 x $1 qualifier tickets on making a first deposit. These tickets can be used on any $500k guaranteed qualifier meaning it is possible to win a share of $500k and the $100k first prize for free.
To those that choose to buy-in directly for $200 there will also be a $500 bonus in addition to any winnings made. The $500 bonuses will be paid on 12th May to all players who buy-in directly for $200. Bonuses will be released at a rate of $50 for every 250 points earned over 30 days.
Team partypoker’s Mike Sexton said: “It’s great to see this $500k guaranteed Special Event on partypoker.com and the wide range of ways to qualify means there are options for players with a variety of bankrolls. I discussed this with the team and like the way we are doing things differently here – taking a punt with the bigger guarantee, offering a juicy bonus for those directly buying-in and offering free satellites for new players.”
