partypoker launch currency for live satellite winners

partypoker announce a more robust approach to live poker satellites with the launch of MY PP LIVE $$$ - a currency for their live events.

Starting in 2018, players can win daily and weekly satellites for the currency, which can be used for buy-ins to any partypoker LIVE main events, side events, hotels and travel. This includes MILLIONS, Country Championships, Grand Prix events and partypoker sponsored events such as WSOP Brazil.

In addition there will be a $1 million leader board for the biggest winners of the currency, giving a real incentive for satellite regulars to play there. If any satellite qualifier goes on to win this Sunday's MILLIONS Online event, they will also win $100,000 in MY PP LIVE $$$.

President of partypoker LIVE, John Duthie, commented:

We’ve spent a lot of this year listening to players and one of the most common criticisms about the online to LIVE satellite route has always been getting locked into specific events when circumstances may change. Enter partypoker LIVE $$$. These can be used to buy in to any partypoker LIVE event worldwide and also to pay for travel and accommodation. They will have no expiry date. This gives players such freedom! To launch partypoker LIVE $$$ we’re going create a Leaderboard in 2018 with $1,000,000 being divvied up between the top players. We’d rather give money to our customers than spend it on advertising. I hope you love this idea as much as I do.

This is another example of how partypoker have chosen to zig whenever PokerStars zags, as in August the market leader announced they were restricting satellite winners to playing in the specific event they won a seat for, with no option to play for multiple seats.
