PokerStars today announced MicroMillions, the most affordable and inclusive online poker tournament series to date. It will enable poker players of all abilities and stakes to win huge prize money for a tiny outlay. The online series takes place from March 15-25, features 100 events and has $5 million in tournament guarantees.
Specifically aimed at recreational and micro stakes players, but with guaranteed prizes large enough to attract players from all levels, MicroMillions has buy-ins starting at just 11 cents, daily $1 tourneys offering up to $100,000 guaranteed, as well as dozens of $2, $3, $4, $5, $8 and $10 tourneys and a $22 Main Event that features a $1 million guarantee on March 25.
Events will run around the clock, meaning that players from all over the world will have the chance to turn just a few dollars into thousands. Tournaments run at the following times on virtually every day: 01.30, 04.00, 06.00, 08.30, 10.00, 12.00, 13.30, 15.30, 17.00 and 21.00 (all times ET). See www.pokerstars.com/poker/tourn aments/micro-millions for the full schedule.
Team PokerStars Pro Lex Veldhuis said: “MicroMillions is one of the best things I’ve seen so far. Back when I played penny and micro-stakes games, I was mesmerised by the big tournament series’ and always hoped to be able to play one day. MicroMillions actually offers players from those stakes the chance to be part of a great tournament series. I think it's a very logical step with all the different online tournament festivals that PokerStars offers. I'm definitely going to play a lot of the events, just because I think it's so awesome.”
While the majority of MicroMillions events are No Limit Hold’em, there are also plenty of other games, including Pot Limit Omaha, Omaha Hi/Lo, Draw, Stud, 8-Game, and formats including Turbo, Rebuy, Shootout, Knockout, Big Ante and 6-Max.
The MicroMillions series extends PokerStars’ online festival offerings, which already includes the richest and most prestigious series in online poker – the World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) – along with the Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP), and the Turbo Championship of Online Poker (TCOOP).
