The site is giving away $2 million worth of prizes via the new “Defection Party” promo which is currently underway and will run through June 4.

The exciting prizes will be distributed in four ways — daily log-in bonuses, boosted cashback, daily challenges, and leaderboards. More details below.

Daily Log-In Prizes

You can win a share of the massive $2 million in prizes by simply logging into your account on a daily basis! You can earn a seat to a $500-guaranteed Hyper-Turbo freeroll which runs twice every day, or receive your prize in the form of a bonus deposited directly to your account. Just log-in, you aren’t even required to play a hand! Simply log-in, it’s that easy!


Boosted Cashback

On selected days, partypoker is awarding 20% in extra cashback. The site will announce specific dates when the extra cashback will be given away. Among them May 7 (the first day of the Defection Party promo), and June 4 (the final day of the promo).

More boosted cashback days will be announced throughout the promotion, so stay tuned! To be in, simply log-in to the partypoker client and go to “My Account“. Click on Promotions, select Defection Boosted Cashback, and opt in!

Daily Challenges

A portion of the prizes will also be awarded through daily challenges that will see players win free entries to multi-table tournaments. To take part, players need to log in to their respective accounts and opt in to the challenge which is generated randomly each day. If you complete the challenges, you will win a seat to a $5,000-guaranteed Hyper-Turbo tournament, which takes place daily at 8:00pm CEST.


partypoker’s cash games, Sit & Go’s and SPINS have leaderboards that are part of the Defection Party promo. These leaderboards carry a combined prize pool of $1.3 million!

There are a total of 16 Cash Game leaderboards, evenly divided between No-Limit Hold’em and Pot-Limit Omaha. All in all, players can take a shot at $1 million in prizes by playing cash games throughout the promotion, while $7,250 is also up for grabs each day in SNGs, and $12,500 will be awarded across multiple SPINS leaderboards.

Giving back to players has always been at the core of partypoker’s mission and goals. The online operator allocates a significant percentage of their poker revenue on cashback programs, bonuses and promotions, and the Defection Party is just one of them.
