PokerStars' penchant for turning everything and everyone around them into gold continued on Monday with the start of their Golden Sit & Go promotion.
Offering a total prize pool of $1,000,000, the latest bonus offer is part of the site’s 100 Billionth Hand celebrations and will give lucky players more cash and bigger prizepools until June 23. Open to every Sit & Go player on the site, the new golden games will be randomly dispersed and players will only know if they’ve joined a special game once registration closes. At this point those registered will receive one of three bonuses on offer: Double prizepool and two buy-ins per player.Quadruple prizepool and four buy-ins per player.Ten times prizepool and ten buy-ins per player. For example, if you registered for a 9-man $30 hyper turbo Sit & Go and it was a "ten times golden game", you would receive $300 and be playing for an enhanced top prize of $1,294. The promotion has already been met with a positive response from grinders with many now multi-tabling as much as possible in order to take advantage of the money on offer. Indeed, after two days of action more than $100,000 in bonus cash has already been paid out to a selection of lucky players. For those that aren’t into Sit & Go tournaments, PokerStars will also be running a $1 million guaranteed Zoom extravaganza this Sunday. Costing $109 to enter, the high octane tournament will mark the final stages of the 100 Billion Hands celebrations and furnish one player with an impressive bankroll boost. If you've never played at PokerStars now could be the perfect opportunity. Download the software and make your first deposit using the code '20FOR10' to claim £20 of free play.
