Millions Online 2021: qualify for the event for just 1 cent
For quite a long time, the largest online tournament in the whole history of poker was the Millions Online at PartyPoker. In 2018, $21 835 000 in prize money was played in the given tournament, and a year later, the prize pool again exceeded the mark of $20 000 000.
This summer, it was «knocked off the pedestal» by the WSOP Online Main Event at GGPoker. Owing to the Main Event, GGPoker got into the Guinness Book of Records, as the ME featured a record prize pool of $27 599 000.
December is considered the traditional month for holding Millions Online at PartyPoker. This year, the event has been postponed to February 2021, as the additional WSOP 2020 Main Event at GGPoker will take place in December, so all the attention will be on it.
As for the format of Millions Online, it has also been changed. A whole series dedicated to this tournament will be carried out in February, but the schedule of this festival is not yet available.
