Everything You Need to Know about the MILLIONS Online Main Event
As we already mentioned, Day 1a of the MILLIONS Online hits partypoker starting at 7:05 p.m. GMT (2:05 p.m. EST) on Sunday, Feb. 21 and features a $5,300 buy-in and a $5 million guaranteed prize pool.
The second and final opening flight takes place the following week at the same time on Sunday, Feb. 28.
Each of the opening flights boasts the same deep structure with players starting with a monster stack of 1 million in chips and blinds increasing slowly at every 25 minutes. Players are allowed one re-entry during each opening flight during the nine-level late-registration window.
The action will conclude during each opening flight when the field is trimmed down to just 15 percent at which point all surviving players will be in the money and advance to Day 2 on Tuesday, March 2 at 7:05 p.m. GMT (2:05 p.m. EST).
Players advancing to Day 2 will enjoy a deeper structure of 30-minute levels with the day concluding after 10 blind levels are completing. Day 3 will feature even longer 40-minute blind levels on Wednesday, March 3 and will play down to a nine-max final table, which will play out the following day on March 4.

Qualify into Day 1a For Just One Penny!
It is safe to say that a $5,300 buy-in even for an event with a $5 million guarantee is out of reach to hop in for most of our readers, maybe even you.
If this is the case, rest assured that there are ways to potentially qualify to this event for a price you are comfortable with thanks to tons of feeder tournaments and satellites starting at just $0.01.
“The partypoker satellite system is amazing,” Team partypoker’s Louise Butler shared in a partypoker press release. “As a low- and mid-stakes grinder, I’m really excited to play them and try to win my way into some exciting bigger buy-in events.”
Players that choose a feeder or qualifier path can hop in any step along the way and here is how it works. There are $0.01 feeder tournaments that feed into $5.50 feeder tournaments. Winners of the $5.50 feeders will play in a $55 feeder to a $530 direct qualifier. Players winning the $530 direct qualifier will be able to play for at least a share of a $5 million guaranteed prize in the partypoker MILLIONS Online Main Event.
You might be asking yourself is it really possible to qualify in for $5.50 or even $0.01? This is a fair question but rest assured this has already happened!
According to partypoker, Christian Galvan navigated through the $0.01, $5.50 and $55 stages and has a seat in Sunday’s Day 1a. Joining him are Emanuel Botoc, Leonard Modder, and Jeffrey Mulder, who all climbed their way up starting at $5.50.
Who knows, you can be next!
