Here's how partypoker described it, "All six BIG Bounty Hunter tournaments are exceptional value thanks to the fact we do not, unlike some other online poker sites out there, charge a registration fee / rake on the bounty element of our PKO events. This means more money goes into the bounty prize pool and therefore more money in your pocket!"
Ohhh, sick burn! I see what you did there partypoker. Nice shade. But hey, it's true. There's a little extra money going to the loyal participants in Big Bounty Hunters.
Right now on partypoker you will find a dozen Bounty Hunter events. Bounty Hunter tournaments run intermittently throughout the day. Exactly once every two hours. Every day! You can also qualify for Bounty Hunter events via satellite.
So, what is Big Bounty Hunters exactly? Here's how partypoker describes it...
"BIG Bounty Hunter tournaments play the exact same way as the majority of standard MTTs with the main exception being every player has a bounty on their head throughout the event. Eliminate an opponent and you instantly receive half of their bounty as a prize, the other half of the bounty is then added to your own bounty, making you a more lucrative target to everyone else in the tournament.
Some of the bounty prizes towards the end of a BIG Bounty Hunter can be massive and the eventual champion not only secures the first-place prize and the entire bounty of the runner-up, they also scoop their own bounty! This can often mean the champion's bounty payment is more than the prize money they receive from the main prize pool!"
Sounds pretty rad, right? It's like a regular bounty tournament, except half of each bounty gets banked while the other half gets added to your bounty. The more people you bust, the bigger the bounty on your own head. Conversely, anyone at the table who went on a spree and knocked out a slew of players will also have a hefty bounty on their own head.
And if you go all the way and win it... you also get to keep your own bounty. Cool, rad, awesome, eh?
The buy-ins for Big Bounty Hunter events are affordable and as low as $0.22. Yup for less than a quarter! And the price tag appeals to the pros, semi-pros, ballers, and custies with a $215 buy-in. The suits at partypoker want everyone involved regardless of bankroll size. And hey, what is a better way to pad the bankroll than bounty events, right?
