A $1m prize pool for a $22 buy-in event? Sounds amazing doesn't it. But that's what on offer from PokerStars in the feature event in its forthcoming MicroMillions tournament series on 25th March.

As the name suggests, the new online festival is aimed at recreational players with tournament buy-ins ranging from just 11c to $22 for the Main Event. The action runs from today until 25th March with a total of 100 events scheduled. Daily $1 tourneys offering up to $100,000 guaranteed and on the docket as well as dozens of $2, $3, $4, $5, $8 and $10 tourneys. Tournaments will run around the clock meaning that players from all over the world will be able to take part. The full tournament schedule can be found here.

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.”
