The largest freeroll series in the history of online poker has been unleashed with the PartyPoker.com Monster. In the next 11 months, there will be more than 40,000 cash winners on the site through 32 $100,000 weekly freerolls and eight monthly $1 million tournaments and a Grand Final with at least a $5 million prize pool.
"We have seeded the first $5 million of the prize money, but that is only the beginning," said Warren Lush, PartyPoker.com spokesman. "The prizes start huge and then just get bigger and bigger. The more people who play, the bigger the Grand Final prize pool will be - the biggest in history."
Anyone can qualify to play in the Monster Weekly freerolls through four different methods. They can play in a Monster Jackpot Cash Game, and when a jackpot hits, everyone playing at that game/limit qualifies for a Monster Freeroll. Winners of the Monster Sit&Go tournaments and the top three players of the scheduled Monster tournaments will also win seats for the Monster Freeroll.
The fourth way is to be one of the top PartyPoints earners. PartyPoker.com will regularly set a points goal, and the players that meet that goal will qualify for a Monster Freeroll.
Players in the weekly freerolls will not only be playing for the $100,000, they'll be competing to play in the Monster Grand Final in June 2007, a land-based event where six finalists will compete for at least $5 million.
