PartyPoker investing $11 million in prizes for January 22 Pokerfest Festival
The theme is boxing in the next PartyPoker Pokerfest series, which kicks off on January 22 and will feature $11 million in prizes across 224 tournaments.
The Pokerfest series has been good for the online poker provider since it launched in early 2016 and has seen prizes and the number of tournaments steadily growing with each iteration.
In the current edition, events will again be split into four categories – each named for a boxing weight division – Featherweight, Middleweight, Heavyweight and High Rollers. Each has a specific main event, with guaranteed prize pools ranging from $40,000 to $1 million.
Keeping the excitement level high is a Super High Roller competition with a $5,200 buy-in and a guarantee of $1 million, with online satellites already on offer for seats.
This series also again includes a leaderboard where successful players can win more prizes.
PartyPokers head of poker, Tom Waters, said in a launch statement this week:
"We have increased the guarantees on a number of events this time and have also added some new and improved tournaments to the schedule in response to feedback from our players. This Powerfest also offers added value through the millions of tickets giveaways that could see players win their seat to the GBP 6 million event at Dusk Till Dawn in April."
