Sunday Million anniversary kicks off millionaire-making campaign

This is going to be a fun time to be playing on PokerStars. Over the course of the next ten weeks, ten people are going to become PokerStars millionaires, and it all begins this weekend with the eleventh anniversary of the world's biggest weekly poker tournament.

Sunday, PokerStars will host the $10 million guaranteed Sunday Million anniversary, and ridiculously huge event that will pay $1 million to the winner.

Go back and read that sentence again. Go ahead. I'll wait.

Right. On Sunday, your $215 buy-in (or much cheaper satellite qualifier win) will give you a chance to be a millionaire by Monday. There are satellites running all the way up to the last minute, so you'll have every opportunity to get a seat in this weekend's biggest poker event. Visit the PokerStars Sunday Million anniversary page for all the details you need to know.

Oh, and once you've done that, check out the nine other ways you can become a millionaire over the next ten weeks.

So, let's just say you run kings into aces on Sunday and don't manage to be the first millionaire of this campaign. No sweat. Depending on how hard you work at it, you will have up to nine more chances to have a seven-figure bankroll before the second week of June.

Understand, this is what PokerStars does. It makes millionaires. Since 2001, PokerStars has turned out 147 millionaires in live events and 52 in online tournaments. Last year alone, PokerStars made 19 people millionaires overnight.

Now it could be your turn.

Need a to-do list to check off? Here you go.

$10 Spin and Go: For the next ten weeks, you could hit a special edition Spin & Go and win a million. All the details on those are right here.

Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP): This year's SCOOP is set to make at least two millionaires. It kicks off on April 30 and runs until May 23. Over the course of that three-week period, you can expect $55 million in prize pools. That is the largest total guarantee ever for a PokerStars series. Want details? Well, hold your horses. All the guarantees for the events are sort of secret right now. We'll be back with you on those in the coming weeks.

PokerStars Championship presented by Monte Carlo Casino® : Maybe you prefer to travel for your millions. Monte Carlo is nice this time of year.
