MicroMillions 12: Low stakes, big prizes

Low stakes and big prizes is the tag line of Micro Millions, and yesterday seven more winners got to know personally how true that really is.

Day five of MicroMillions 12 concluded in the early hours of this morning: new winners marvelling at how a couple of bucks (in one case a few cents) became a four figure payday. Six figures, if you count those numbers to the right of the decimal point. And given there are buy-ins for as little as $0.11 we think you should.


So let's take a look at the day's "six-figure" MicroMillions pay-outs.


The biggest winner of the day was FrenszKK of Hungary, who won $7,039.25 (RoI = an almost hilarious 1.8 million per cent) in Event #22, an ultra-deep stacked hold'em event.

Which, by the way, can be added to the list of reason why now is a great time to open a PokerStars account, or to put your micro-bank roll back into service with MicroMillions -- the chance to play deep stacked or any type of event with great structures more familiar to high stakes players.

Six more events make up today's MicroMillions schedule, details of which can be found on the MicroMillions homepage.
