The fifth edition of the MicroMillions online poker series from PokerStars begins today with the first batch of its 100 events.
Running until July 28, the festival has a total guarantee of at least five million dollars spread among a host of tournaments with buy-ins ranging from as little as eleven cents up to $22.Last time around, MicroMillions IV smashed all records and not only paid out $9,588,892 but became the largest online festival ever with a total of 1,572,760 entrants. This time, PokerStars is hoping the recent excitement surrounding the WSOP will encourage even more grinders to take to the felt in search of a bumper payday.In total there will be five MicroMillions V tournaments played today including a $15,000 guaranteed affair featuring a buy-in of only eleven cents. This is to be followed by a one-dollar buy-in no-limit hold‘em rebuy affair with a prize pool set at $150,000.Arguably the main attraction of MicroMillions V is set to be the buy-in $22 no-limit hold‘em main event on July 28, which will feature a 10,000 chip starting stack and ten-minute blinds. The one million dollars up for grabs has already enticed just under 2,000 players to register in advance.Bluff Europe readers can download the PokerStars software and receive a bonus worth up to $400 by clicking here.
