PartyPoker creates frenzy for Monthly Million
Qualifiers are under way at PartyPoker for the next installment of the Monthly Million this Sunday.
The Monthly Million is a $1 million guaranteed online poker tournament that takes place at PartyPoker the first Sunday of each month.
It has a $600+$40 buy-in, but the poker site also offers various qualifying paths that give players a shot at the tournament for as little as $1.
The qualifiers include $64+$6 daily satellites with 18 seats guaranteed, a Mega Friday $50+$5 satellite that guarantees 30 seats and supersatellite Saturday qualifiers with a $32+$3 buy-in and 25 seats guaranteed.
PartyPoker also announced the addition of the "50 Seat Frenzy," with 50 seats guaranteed. The tournament will run on Saturday at 11:25 ET. Plus there are "Super 8" qualifiers running all weekend featuring an $88 buy-in and guaranteeing a one-in-eight chance of getting to the final.
On Sunday, there will be one more chance in the "Ultimate Qualifier" for players to get into the Monthly Million for a $340 buy-in. Ten seats are guaranteed for this tournament.
"The PartyPoker.com Monthly Million offers great value - it will have a nice number of players and has a European friendly start time," said Warren Lush, PartyPoker spokesman.
"The inaugural tournament took place on the same day as the Super Bowl and was a great success attracting 1,659 players with 250 making the money."
Popeye7111, from France, won the first event for a $155,000 payday. He was followed by mbalzack from the Netherlands.

Ninja232's $68,000 cash will also be put to good use. He plans on using it to save to buy a house.
