At present, the best player of the series is ‘ProSkill’, who has banked 260 points ahead of Germany’s ‘bastet2004’ on 240 and fellow Russian ‘FENOMENICO’ with 220.On offer for the best MicroMillions V player is a $5,200 buy-in 2013 World Championship Of Online Poker (WCOOP) main event ticket while those making it into the top 50 are to receive tickets valued at either $1,050 or $215.Bluff Europe readers can download the PokerStars software and receive a bonus worth up to $400 by clicking here.
