With the launch of partypoker LIVE $$$, top online poker room partypoker now offers their players more value when it comes to satellite options for major events. Players can use partypoker LIVE $$$ to gain entry into LIVE events as well as side events taking place during major live poker festivals.
Partypoker LIVE $$$, PPL$$$, is a new currency at partypoker that provides players with access to MILLIONS events, the Grand Prix and the World Series of Poker sponsored tournaments. Players will be able to use partypoker LIVE $$$ to compete in any poker tournament as well as travel and other expense needs. Because of the flexibility of the new currency, players can travel to places around the world including the Bahamas, Sochi or Montreal.
PPL$$$ started on April 8th, with players having the ability to compete for the currency via online satellites that take place at the online poker room. Each day, $5.50 events take place with $55 feeders available plus $530 buy-in finals offered each Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. With each final, at least ten players are guaranteed $5,000 in PPL$$$.
In a partypoker blog post, partypoker LIVE President, John Duthie, stated: “We spent a lot of last year listening to players and one of the most common gripes about the online to LIVE satellite route has always been getting locked into specific events when circumstances may change. Enter PPL$$$. These can be used to buy into any partypoker LIVE event worldwide and to pay for travel and accommodation. You just have to spend them within 12 months. I hope you love this idea as much as I do.”
With the launch of PPL$$$, partypoker has decided to host a leaderboard for one year, from this April to April 2019. The top 100 finishers will be awarded $1,000,000 in PPL$$$. The player who earns the most PPL$$$ for the first year will earn an additional $100,000 that can be used during the next partypoker LIVE season.
