How to play the Sunday Billion

The Sunday Billion takes place at 15:00 ET every Sunday, and has a buy-in of 1,000,000 chips. You’ll find it listed in the PokerStars software under ‘Tourney’ > ‘All’. 

You can purchase Play Money chips from the main menu by clicking ‘Requests’ > ‘Purchase Play Money Chips’. We recommend the $9.99 package of 2M chips, but prices start at just $1.99. See here for more on how to buy chips.

If you enjoy the huge prize pools of the Sunday Billion, then look out for the High Roller tourneys. They take place four times per day and feature buy-ins of 20M chips (at 14:00 & 20:00 ET) and 50M chips (at 16:00 and 22:00 ET).
