"The Aussie Millions is regarded as one of the marquee poker events globally and by aligning with the biggest poker tour in the region, the Asia Pacific Poker Tour will further guarantee the event's success in the coming years."

Also shining brightly on the Season 8 roster are two instances of the Macau Poker Cup. Initially taking place in January and then again in August, the popular festival will take place inside PokerStars LIVE Macau and welcome a slew of local pros and qualifiers.
