Thursday, 14 November 2013

Calling all small stakes grinders. It's that time of the year when PokerStars gives the more bankroll challenged amongst us a shot at winning a huge score for pennies courtesy of it MicroMillions festival.

The sixth series will offer a total of 100 events with a guaranteed prize pool of at least $5m to be won. The festival runs from 14-24 November and kicks off with a $0.11+R NL Hold’em [Hyper-Active] contest. The highlight of course is the $1 million Main Event on 24 November which features a buy-in of just $22!

This year's festival will also see the debut appearance of an $8.80 NL Hold’em Progressive Super Knockout event, where the bounty on a player’s head increases during the tournament as they knock people out and win bounties themselves.

The Micro Millions Leader Board also makes a very welcome return with some great goodies on offer to those who manage to finish in the top 100. Bonus prizes up for grabs include a Sunday Million ticket worth $215 for those finishing 11th to 100th. Five Sunday Million tickets with a total value of $1075 will go to those finishing 2nd to 10th with the overall Leader Board winner getting six months' of Sunday Million entries!

“MicroMillions is a lot of fun and offers great value,” said Team PokerStars Pro and two-time MicroMillions Player of the Series, Marcin ‘Goral’ Horecki. “For low stakes players, it’s a chance to win big money at little cost, while for higher stakes players the added Tournament Leader Board prizes make it a worthwhile proposition.”
