Special prizes awarded for Community Knockout

The Community Knockout is a $5.50 monthly progressive knockout tournament available for all players. The tournament includes players from 11 online communities.

Each group selects one special player, who carries a $50 bounty in the event. Additionally, if that player is eliminated by a player from the same community, the winner also claims an exclusive prize including:

  • Xbox Series S
  • Playstation 5
  • Gaming laptop
  • $500 in cash
  • $500 to spend on tournaments
  • £500 tech bundle

World Darts Championship winner and former rugby player Gerwyn Price will represent the Poker Page community forum in the event. EastEnders actor Shaun Williamson will also represent the FootyAccums betting community.

Four-time super-middleweight boxing champion and Team partypoker member Carl Froch will also participate again on behalf of the site. 

“I’m looking forward to getting in the mix for the partypoker Community Knockout tournament again, this time with a $20,000 prize pool,” Froch said in a news release. “There’s $500 in tournament dollars up for grabs for knocking me out and lots of other great prizes if you are part of the communities, so come and have a go.”

How to win a prize

Any player can enter the event, but must sign up with any of the 11 communities to win prizes. Those can only be claimed on social media by:

  • taking a screenshot of their winning hand
  • share the hand with their community on social media
  • tagging partypoker

In addition to the bounty prizes, the minimum guarantee in the tournament has been given a significant boost. That goes from $5,000 to $20,000 for the same buy-in.

The tournament will be streamed from start to finish on partypokerTV — the platform’s Twitch channel. Artem Kharitohov won last month’s Community Knockout. The Russia-based player topped a field of 1,726 entries to win $1,209.

Qualifiers underway for WPT Championship

The World Poker Tour World Online Championships are set for Aug. 13 to Sept. 15 at partypoker. The series includes a $5,300 Main Event featuring a $5 million guarantee.

Party is now offering phased satellites for the event, with buy-ins starting as low as only $0.01. These centrolls award at least 15 tickets to Phase 1, each worth $4.40.

Those $4.40 Phase 1 satellites pay out $22 tickets into the next available Phase 2. More information on the WPT World Online Championships will be released soon.

Magic Cards pave way for new laptop for Ukrainian player

Partypoker recently launched the Magic Cards promotion and that paid some nice dividends for one player recently. Thousands of players have won free prizes daily since the promotion’s debut.

Ukrainian player “freddy2019” scored a nice jackpot recently for $1,000. He’s been playing poker recreationally for about four years, mostly multi-table tournaments and satellites in the $3-$5 range. Freddy had already won some Magic Cards cash prizes before locking up the big prize.

“It was an ordinary evening,” he says. “After my main job, I played some hands of NL25 to quickly generate five cashback points to open all the available Magic Cards. I’d been opening the cards since the very beginning of the promotion. On the first day of Magic Cards, I won $10, $20, and $50 cards in a row.

“I opened my cards and planned on using my five or ten free spins, place a couple of sports bets, and go to bed. But on the third card, I saw the figure looked big. I looked closer and counted the zeros. I couldn’t believe that there was $1,000 there.”

The online grinder quickly purchased something to aid in his favorite hobby.

“I bought myself a gaming laptop so now it’s more pleasant to play online poker,” he said, “and I can play The Witcher when poker is not going my way.”

Players can complete this challenge up to three times a day to receive up to three tournament tickets.

Complete 25 missions or more throughout the entire promotion to earn a Kings Kamikaze ticket. Those who win more than one ticket, can use them for the several Kamikaze starting flights available.

888 notes a few stipulations for the promotion. Tournament rebuys aren’t considered as part of the challenge. There are minimum odds of 1.5 in sports betting challenges.

The site promises even more throughout the series. Players should look for pop-up offers like doubling the prize pools, loyalty offers, and more.

More Cashback Coming to Partypoker Players With Boosted Promotions, Increased Prizes

Partypoker is offering online poker players even more reason to hit the cash game tables with new cashback and Magic Card boosts.

Partypoker is offering online poker players even more reason to hit the cash game tables. The company unveiled new cashback and Magic Cards boosts this week, meaning more bang for the buck for players.

Cash and fastforward games are now offering 10% extra cashback. The Magic Card promotion also receives a significant boost to the prizes awarded. Both promotions start next week.

Partypoker makes it easier to earn cash back

To qualify for the cashback promotion, all players have to do is earn 0.1 cashback points or more in a single ay. This can be on any game type and the promotion begins June 21.

Partypoker will then return an extra 10% cashback on all cash game and fastforward rake. This means thousands of players now have a chance to earn cashback every day. Players earn 1 point for every $1 in rake they generate and 0.1 points for every $0.10.

This promotion adds a boost to a previous cashback promotion. Previously, players needed to generate 600 points in a week to qualify.

That’s now been reduced at just 0.1 points a day. The 10% boost is also paid daily now, not just at the end of the week. 

Players can win more with Magic Cards

Partypoker is also adding new and improved prizes to the Magic Cards promotion. The company is giving players more chances to win with the maximum cash prize rising from $500 to $1,000.

Magic Cards allow players to go on a poker journey to earn a daily pick. Players use daily picks to choose one of four cards. These can reveal an instant prize including

  • cash
  • tournament tickets
  • bonuses
  • freeroll tickets

The promotion begins June 22, allowing cash game and fastforward players to earn up to five picks daily. Players gain an extra pick for every cashback point they earn from those games.

There will also now be additional Magic Cards prizes. With the Euro and Copa America football tournaments in full swing, players can also win bonus bets.

These wagers can be placed on any event with partypoker Sports. To claim the picks, players can head to the offers section and choose a card.

“We’re really excited to be able to offer all of our players the opportunity to earn cashback, and to earn it daily for the period of the Boosted Cashback promotion,” partypoker associate director of marketing Liam Casey said in a news release.

“With Euro 2020, Copa America, NBA playoffs, and of course Wimbledon taking place over the next few weeks, our Magic Cards promotion is going to give away thousands of free sports bets. It’s a fun time to play on partypoker.”

Plans for Hot Tables to be ramped up

Partypoker also recently introduced the Hot Tables promotion. That feature will go dark beginning June 22.

The pause allows for some changes to the promotion following some player feedback, the company notes. That is expected to result in more players at the table being paid prizes. More details are expected to be announced soon.

Players busting any pros or guests earned a mystery prize ranging from a $33 ticket to a $320 Mini Main Event seat.

Brazil’s Douglas Souza took home a $3,200 seat to the $3 million guaranteed WPT Online Series Main Event. He was streaming his play on PokerStars’ Brazilian Twitch channel when he won the event.

In other news, one of the winningest players in poker also scored a title early in the series. Steve O’Dwyer took down the $5,200 WPT High Roller Turbo on May 18.

Based in the Netherlands, O’Dwyer was one of 50 players buying into the event for a $250,000 prize pool. He topped Finland’s Samuel Vousden in heads-up play for the $80,891 top prize. Vousden took $49,736 for runner-up.
