In the constantly changing world of online poker, PartyPoker has stood the test of time.

The online gaming giant is celebrating its seventh year of operation, and its players will be the ones to truly benefit from the anniversary.

PartyPoker will be offering a $1 million guaranteed Birthday Party bonanza tournament on Sunday, Aug. 10 at 12:45 ET. The event will be complete with championship-style structures and a diverse set of qualifiers for players with varying bankrolls. Players will also be able to buy into the tournament directly for $640.

There will be an entire week of value-packed events leading up to the big birthday bash, including Magic Hand on Tuesday, which means a magic hand will appear every 77,777 hands with every player at the table winning a share of an up to $300 cash prize.

The winner of the hand will get 50% of the money while the rest is spread around the table. The cash prize depends on what stakes you are playing: $300 goes to the players in a $3/$6 or higher Limit game, 50¢/$1 No-Limit or higher and 50¢/$1 Pot-Limit or higher. $200 is awarded for $2/$4 Limit and lower, 25¢/50¢ No-Limit and lower, and 25¢/50¢ Pot-Limit Hold'em and lower. $100 for a magic hand is available in freerolls.


On Wednesday players will get a shot at entering seven $777 tournaments, with the top 77 players making it into the money. Players can enter as many of the tournaments as they want.

Thursday is all about surprises - over the span of 10 hours, there will be a total of 20 surprise tournaments, which will appear in the lobby just 15 minutes before they begin.

On Friday the qualifiers for the Birthday $1 million will be shifted into overdrive and there will be dozens of ways to get in on the action.

Every player who picked up 77 points during the tournament will be invited to take part in the $7,777 where the top 777 players will get a slice of the prize pool as well as at least 150 seats into the $1 million guaranteed birthday on Sunday.

"It's a week of celebrations all around on to mark our birthday," said a PartyPoker spokesperson. "Sunday is the big one but there is a great deal of value to be had every day in the lead-up."
