MicroMillions 6: $5 million in guarantees for tiny buy-ins
The world's biggest little tournament series is back, and if you've got a couple of bucks, you're ready to take your shot at $5 million in guaranteed prize money.
Today, PokerStars announced it is bringing back its wildly popular MicroMillions tournament series. MicroMillions 6 kicks off November 14 and runs through November 24.
If you're not familiar with MicroMillions, here's how it works: the buy-ins start at 11 cents (seriously) and never get bigger than $22. Over the course of the ten days of the festival, PokerStars hosts 100 tournaments with guarantees that get as big as $1 million.
It all kicks off in just a couple of weeks with a crazy 11-cent rebuy tournament that guarantees $15,000 and a $1 rebuy tournament that will pay out at least $150,000 in prize money. There are dozens more tournaments to follow. Then, on November 24, the biggest of the MicroMillions tournaments will rear its pretty head with a $1 million guarantee that will pay out a minimum of $150,000 to the winner.
Just like PokerStars' other big tournament series, MicroMillions offers a Player of the Series title. The leader board competition will pay out 100 places, and the winner gets an amazing prize: 26 weeks of $215 Sunday Million tickets!
As always, the PokerStars Blog will be at every final table with our signature coverage and features on the big winners.
