Taylor Black wins MILLIONS North America after using PP LIVE Dollars to buy-in. American pro becomes the latest player to win more than $1,000,000 in a MILLIONS tournament as partypoker LIVE announces an expansion to the PP LIVE Dollars program.
As Taylor Black lifted the MILLIONS North America trophy at Playground Poker Club, Montreal, partypoker LIVE’s team put the finishing touches to their expanded PP LIVE Dollars satellites. Now players can win anything from $200 right up to $5000 in daily and weekly satellites, designed for poker players of all levels. Check it out.
PP LIVE Dollars can be used to buy into partypoker LIVE tournaments, and tournaments at partner venues such as King’s Casino Europe, Playground Poker Club, and Dusk Till Dawn. Now players can use them for low buy-in tournaments, as well as major global events.
Black, who won his PP LIVE Dollars in a live satellite at MILLIONS Grand Final Barcelona said:
“Winning my PP LIVE Dollars in a satellite in Barcelona was in itself great news, as it enabled me to play MILLIONS North America for a much lower investment, but of course, the fact that I turned my satellite entry into $1.4 Million CAD makes it all the sweeter! Thanks to partypoker LIVE for helping make it happen.”
Players who win PP LIVE Dollars in online satellites are entered into an exclusive online leaderboard, where players can win a share of $1,000,000 PP LIVE Dollars, on top of the PP LIVE Dollars they have already earned. The current leader is Canadian samygold13, and the leader board runs until 15/04/2019.
partypoker LIVE President, John Duthie said: “PP LIVE Dollars are great, and already we’ve seen how much players love them, so as we always do, when things are going well, we offer players even more value for money! Now we’re offering PP LIVE Dollars at every bankroll, and letting players spend them on daily tournaments at our partner venues, at our big festivals, and even on hotel and travel expenses! Talk about flexibility.”
Following the success of the expanded PP LIVE Dollars satellites, partypoker is ending the trial satellites for DTD Pounds. Instead players will have one flexible currency they can use across everything. Once won PP LIVE Dollars have a 12 month expiry, $530 satellite tickets have a 28 day expiry, all other satellite / feeder tickets have a 7 day expiry.
partypoker Global Ambassador Sam Trickett thinks PP LIVE Dollars are one of the best innovations he’s seen in online poker: “No-one else offers such flexibility, you can even get your hotel and travel costs reimbursed using PP LIVE Dollars. Taylor winning MILLIONS North America using PP LIVE Dollars is great for the marketing people, but already thousands of players can see the huge benefit to playing in these satellites. And now recreational players can get involved and win smaller amounts of PP LIVE Dollars, it really is a great for poker.”
