Microgaming’s poker network celebrates third anniversary of Fish Party SNGs

ISLE OF MAN – This month marks three years since the Microgaming Poker Network (MPN) introduced its popular Fish Party Sit & Go progressive jackpot tournaments.

To celebrate the third anniversary of this industry-first format, the MPN will be running the Fish Party Birthday Bonanza, a unique promotion providing players with oceans of opportunities to land some big rewards in special re-seeded Fish Party jackpots and daily freerolls.

Running from 15 July to 4 August, the Fish Party Birthday Bonanza will feature a €5,000 seeded jackpot, which will grow by €1,000 each day (up to a maximum of €25,000) until a Fish Party Sit & Go progressive jackpot hits. Each time a jackpot is won during the promotional period, the special bonanza jackpot will reset to €5,000 the following day and begin to rise again. For players looking to grab a share, they must make at least €5 worth of Fish Party buy-ins the day before the jackpot hits, where each €5 buy-in will award one share of the jackpot.

In addition, players who play €5 worth of Fish Party buy-ins during the previous day will have another chance to grab a slice of the Birthday Bonanza in €500 Fish Party flip freerolls, running from 16 July to 5 August at 18:00 BST daily, with €50, €20, €10, €5 and €1 Fish Party tickets up for grabs.

What’s more, there will be a €1,000 Fishroller freeroll on 7 August at 19:00 BST, which will be open to any player who plays €500 worth of Fish Party buy-ins per day from 15 July, for a minimum of 10 days.

For players looking to join in the Fish Party Birthday Bonanza action, they can simply create a new account or log in to an existing account via any MPN poker room.

Since its inception in 2016, the Fish Party Sit & Go progressive jackpot has been hit 35 times, paying out more than €1.7 million in prizes. The jackpot landed five times in the first half of 2019, and a total of 14 times in 2018, when three lucky players reeled in the biggest haul on the network when they shared a €317,849.78 catch in October.

Also celebrating a significant milestone this month is the MPN Poker Tour (MPNPT), which makes its long-awaited return to the vibrant city of London from 18-21 July for its fifth anniversary. Held at Aspers Casino, the event will feature a host of tournaments, including the flagship £200,000 guaranteed Main Event, plenty of action in the side events, and a live version of its online Fish Party Sit & Go progressive jackpot game.
