After 20 days of anticipation, it happened.
It all started on 15 July when the Fish Party Birthday Bonanza promo, featuring a €5K seeded jackpot, began.
As we sat on the edge of our seats eagerly watching the Fish Party Birthday Bonanza jackpot ticker rise by €1K each day for 18 days, the jackpot was finally hooked on the second to last day.
It was on Saturday 3 August when three lucky players reeled in a whopping shared catch of €19,315.93, with the tournament winner taking home just shy of €10,000!
As if that were not enough, the jackpot was hit once again on the final day of the promo, with another three players netting a combined haul of €5,065, taking the payout total up to €24,380.93!
Fish and chips
A unique pairing of poker and casino, we launched our industry-first Fish Party Sit & Go progressive jackpot in the summer of 2016. Since then, the jackpot has dished out more than €1.7 million to players on our network. And it continues to reel players in, paying out a total of five times this year, including a €60K payday in July.
What better way to celebrate Fish Party’s three-year anniversary this summer than with a Birthday Bonanza jackpot, with up to €25K up for grabs?
To be in with a chance of scooping up a slice of the jackpot, players simply had to make at least €5 worth of Fish Party buy-ins the day before the jackpot hit.
That certainly paid off for Rossen, a 45-year-old Bulgarian who logged in to find a €1 Fish Party ticket on the penultimate day of the promo. During his fourth €1 Fish Party tournament of the day, he was plunged into playing for the big jackpot. After only a few hands, he managed to bust the third player, who took home €3,863.18. Eventually finishing in second place, Rossen secured an impressive €5,794.77 prize – not bad after starting the day with €0.40 and a €1 Fish Party ticket!
There was also another chance for players to win in the Birthday Bonanza in our daily €500 Fish Party flip freerolls, which attracted over 21,000 entries. Not only that, but 21 high rollers also took the plunge in the €1,000 Fishroller freeroll on 7 August, with players playing €500 worth of Fish Party buy-ins per day for a least 10 days from 15 July.
With a total of 9,423 players joining in the party, our Fish Party Birthday Bonanza certainly made a splash. Since the regular Fish Party jackpot was hit twice during the promotional period, the Bonanza jackpot generated a total prize pool of €29K, which was shared between Fish Party players who played at least €5 worth of Fish Party buy-ins the previous calendar day the regular jackpot was hit.
The party never stops
That’s not it for MPN this summer! Next up on the network, we’re giving players the chance to reach new heights on the Cash Mountain, our latest promo with over €20,000 in prizes for players who manage to scale the leaderboards.
And we can’t wait to bring the party back to Maltese shores this autumn when we return for another awesome stop of the MPN Poker Tour.
