It’s that time of the year again! After a very successful 2016 Caribbean Poker Party at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Punta Cana, PartyPoker is once again heading back to Punta Cana for the second consecutive year.
The 2017 MILLIONS Caribbean Poker Party festival is scheduled to take place live at The Level at Meliá Caribe Tropical between the 19th to 25th November, and this time around, PartyPoker is looking to outdo themselves by have a total prize pool guarantee of at least $10 Million! That’s three times more than the previous year!
In total, there will be 5 events taking place throughout the 9-day festival. There are 4 $1 million guarantee events with buy-in ranging from $1,100 up to $25,500. Then there’s the $5,300 Main Event with a cool $5 million guaranteed.
The combination of the $10 million guaranteed prize pool, the wider range of events, along with the $10,000 Caribbean Poker Party packages that they have been handing out to around 600 online players for the past several months will for sure generate massive interest for this international annual event.

Off the Felt Action
As is the norm for the majority of holiday destination tournaments, PartyPoker has prepared an extensive range of activities to keep their non-poker playing guests entertained too. These include golf days at the Cocotal golf course, a catamaran trip, zip lines, and plenty of drinks at the welcome parties, cocktail parties, and finally, the farewell party.
Guests will also have access to a beautiful private beach owned by the all-inclusive resort that offers water sports such as windsurfing, kayaking, and sailing. So, even if you’re not going for the poker action, there’s plenty of other things to keep you occupied and entertained during your stay in the beautiful resort town of Punta Cana.
PartyPoker Solidifies Its Position as the Operator of the Year
The success of this event will undoubtedly help PartyPoker to further secure their position as the Operator of the Year, an award that they snatched off of the long-time industry leader, PokerStars.
The fact that they’ve increased this year’s guaranteed prize pool by more than 3 times compared to last year, especially at the Caribbean seas which have historically been dominated by PokerStars for the last 10+ years, is indicative of their strong drive to sit on the poker industry throne for the long run.
