Are you PokerStars' next millionaire?
Since Chris Moneymaker first pumped his fist at the World Series of Poker Main Event, the question was never whether PokerStars could make another millionaire. The question was: who will be the next one?
It's been nearly 12 years since Moneymaker's PokerStars satellite win sent him to the WSOP and his $2.5 million title victory. In that time, PokerStars has been the springboard for millionaire after millionaire. From WCOOP to SCOOP, from the WSOP to the EPT, the roll call of seven-figure winners goes on and on.
Now, PokerStars wants to give you a chance to be its next millionaire.
Beginning today, the PokerStars Makes Millionaires promotion will give you five different opportunities to win life-changing money.
If you're ready to get started, we have all the information below.
You first opportunities to get in on the action begin right now. Once again, the $5 Spin & Go tourneys could earn you $1 million in just a matter of minutes. It happened for the first time just a few months ago when a handyman from southern Russia became the first person to win one of the $1 million Spin & Go events. Now, the $1 million first prizes are back, and you can become PokerStars' next millionaire in the blink of an eye.
Today, you can also begin your quest to become not only a millionaire but the EPT's next Grand Final champion. That event is coming up next month, and you could be there competing for the €1 million guaranteed first prize. Over the next few weeks, when you deposit with a special code, you can get a free ticket to a tournament that could put you in line to win one of three EPT Grand Final packages. All the details on that are right here.
Beginning April 1, you can begin working toward the next chance to win your seven figures. That's when PokerStars will open up Round 1 of Millionaire Month. In that contest, you can complete a series of challenges to get tickets to All-In Shootouts that could eventually land you in a tourney that will make one person an instant millionaire and two other people FPP millionaires. After a couple weeks of those challenges, you can move on to a second round of challenges and prizes beginning on April 19.
Finally, beginning May 2, PokerStars will be giving away $400,000 worth of SCOOP Main Event tickets. The high buy-in Main Event is guaranteeing $1 million to the winner, and you can get a seat in it for free. To find out how, visit the SCOOP Deposit Raffle homepage.
In all, that's five different opportunities to become PokerStars' next millionaire. As always, it's not a matter of whether we'll see another seven-figure winner under the big red spade. It's just a matter of who it will be.
