Have you ever wished that just by telling your friends about your progress in a poker tournament, you could win your way to another, even bigger tournament? How about Europe’s largest ever major live poker tournament?  

From the 8th February right up until the 18th February, we’re giving you the chance to win a ticket into the MILLIONS Grand Final Main Event, which is being held in the Catalan capital of Barcelona during April 2018.


We’re looking for a King or Queen of the Rail for MILLIONS Germany and giving away a package worth $16,000 to the MILLIONS Grand Final Barcelona to the winner, plus $4000 in partypoker LIVE $$$ to the runners up. All you have to do is start sharing tournament action and live player updates at My Rail – the more original and engaging your content is the better!

How My Rail Works

My Rail is a revolutionary new way for poker fans to follow poker and for poker players to bring to their fans. From reporting on that vital bust-out hand to telling fans exactly how the late Day 2 surge sent you from short-stack to chip leader, My Rail is a tool designed for poker players to make the absolute most out of their experience at the partypoker LIVE felt.

For all poker fans, and we’re exactly that, My Rail will become an essential part of how we follow the greatest card game on Earth. Imagine being able to shape the type of updates you support so that whoever you’re hoping will win will automatically be more prominent in what you read? That has become a reality for My Rail fans who are members of My partypoker LIVE.


Win Big by My Railing your MILLIONS Germany Experience!

The best My Railer during MILLIONS Germany will win a MILLIONS Grand Final Barcelona package worth $16,000! The four runners-up will win $1000 in the brand new partypoker LIVE $$$, so there is a huge amount being played for just for telling the world about your tournament.


When you join My Rail, you’ll need to check-in to the MILLIONS Germany event, using the check-in code ‘F4270’


During the MILLIONS Germany festival ,our panel of experts will be looking at My Rail and will convene on 16th Feb to pick their top five Railers.  Their decision will be based on a number of factors, but will be ultimately their choice.  The factors that will influence their decision will include:


  • Number of My Rail Posts
  • Innovation – including your own photos or videos in your My Rail
  • Entertaining and Informative – how you’ve kept your audience engaged
  • Number of followers
  • Number of comments
  • How you have reached out to your social media audience


Once the panel decide the top five, we will host a 48 hour vote on My partypoker LIVE and the winner will be the My Railer with the most votes.  It will be a secret ballot and 100% based on public votes.


The winner will be announced on My partypoker LIVE and on social media on 19th February 2018
