The MicroMillions breaks records (again)
The MicroMillions online series keeps getting bigger and better. This fourth incarnation of the 100-event festival close to doubled its overall guarantee by paying out $9,588,892.60. A total - and astonishing - number of tournament entries clocked in at 1,572,760 making the MicroMillions 4 the most played tournament series ever.
Sure, we get to keep blowing our own trumpet as we break our own records but growth of 20.15% (player entries) and 15.67% (prizes pool) deserves to be given a little recognition, surely? 'Ges26' from Belarus notched up an enormous $140,468.56 win after beating a field of 68,081 to claim the lion's share of a five-way deal. That's a pretty good return for a $22 buy-in.
