The champagne corks are popping as PartyPoker.com celebrates its 7th birthday this week, counting down to a $1,000,000 guaranteed Birthday Party bonanza tournament on Sunday 10th August at 12.45 ET.
Players can buy-in directly to the championship-style blind structured main event for $640. As always, PartyPoker.com will provide a diverse qualifying structure allowing ALL players, no matter the size of their bankroll, an opportunity to qualify and participate in the $1 Million Birthday Party. Qualifiers start from as little as $1 with a range running daily. It is possible to get involved in the action by using just 15 PartyPoints.
Tuesday 5th August – Magic Hand
On Tuesday a magic hand will appear once every 77,777 hands. If you’re lucky enough to hit one, both you and all the players at your table will win a share of up to $300. The winner of the hand will get 50% of the money rewarded while the rest of the table will share the remaining amount.
That means you don’t even have to win the hand to receive a payout. The cash prize depends on the game you’re in when the magic hand is played. $300 is awarded to $3/$6 limit tables or higher, $0.50/$1 no limit or higher, $0.50/$1 pot limit or higher. $200 is awarded for $2/$4 limit tables and lower, $0.25/$0.50 no limit and lower, $0.25/$0.50 pot limit and lower and any tournaments. $100 for a magic hand is available for freerolls.
