$5 million guaranteed Main Event highlights this year’s MILLIONS Online festival

One of the first major online poker festivals of 2021 kicks off this weekend on the partypoker international client.

The 2021 partypoker MILLIONS Online runs Feb. 13-March 9 and gets right into the big-money guarantees on the festival’s first day. Saturday, Feb. 13 kicks off with Event #1: $1,100 MILLIONS Mini Main Event, which guarantees $1 million.

The latest edition of the partypoker MILLIONS will pay out plenty of big scores over the next month. Here’s a look at how to get in the action in the 2021 edition of the event:

Available on the partypoker international client

The 2021 MILLIONS Online can be accessed on the partypoker international online platform. Players in the U.S. can’t legally play on the site, but partypoker is available to players throughout most of the rest of the world.

Anyone can download the partypoker platform, even from the U.S. You won’t be able to deposit money or play, however, if you’re in a restricted area like the U.S.

Partypoker does operate a U.S.-only platform in New Jersey, and will eventually launch in Michigan and Pennsylvania as well. The partypoker US Network, however, doesn’t allow access to tournaments on the partypoker international site.

If you do live in an approved jurisdiction, you can download the partypoker client at partypoker.com. From the main page, click on “Download Now” to get started on partypoker.

Registering for tournaments in the partypoker MILLIONS Online series

Once you’ve downloaded partypoker, click on the MILLIONS logo on the horizontal bar on top of the main lobby. The menu that comes up from there displays all 28 events from the festival, including satellite qualifiers.

Some satellite qualifiers allow you to start working your way toward a big buy-in event for just $0.01. The “Category” filter at the top left of the lobby allows you to toggle between the satellite schedule, main tournament schedule, and a menu that displays all satellites and main tournaments at the same time.
