PartyPoker is giving its players a shot at a $500,000 prize pool for only $109.

That’s the buy-in of the upcoming PartyPoker Grand Prix Poker Tour online event set for April 2-3, 2016.

The GPPT will also offer Day 1s for every time zone so that everyone can get in on the action.

Technically there will be a staggering 13 Day 1s over the weekend of April 2-3 in order to get everyone in.

Players can play as many Day 1s as they wish with their biggest stack getting carried over for Day 2.

“With Powerfest coming to a close we wanted to offer players another huge guaranteed online tournament,” said PartyPoker Group Head Tom Waters.

“Our normal MTT schedule offers our biggest guarantees at peak European time, so we decided that we would like to offer all our online players around the world the chance to play in a huge online tournament.”

The GPPT online tournament is a unique event for PartyPoker and Waters said they will consider running similar events if it is a success.

It may even end being a monthly tournament if there's sufficient interest.
