Play the MicroMillions 5, a $5,000,000 guaranteed festival (18-28 July)
The MicroMillions is back! The best and by far the biggest low buy-in festival is rolling into town later this month. Not only does it provide some top quality structures for buy-ins of just a few bucks, but there are some enormous prizes that can be won across the 100 events. The $5m guarantee is fantastic but expect a lot more money to be piled in. The MicroMillions 4 festival stacked up an incredible $9,588,892.60 in prize money with 1,572,760 entries.
The micro-stakes festival, which has buy-ins ranging from $0.11 to $22, has become so popular not just because of the big prize pools, but also because of the wide spread of big games on offer. There's Razz, Courchevel, Hold'em, 5-Card Omaha, 2-7, Big Antes, Knockouts, Shootouts... well, pretty much everything you could be interested in playing.

Team PokerStars Pro Marcin 'Goral' Horecki, who has somewhat incredibly won the MicroMillions Player of the Series twice, is all geared up for another run.
"MicroMillions is a lot of fun and the range of tournaments and buy-ins is fantastic. The best thing about it is that the fields and prize pools are so big that it's possible to turn a dollar or two into a five- or six-figure score in just a few hours," said Horecki.
And he's not wrong. Just look at Ges26 from Belarus who won the MicroMillions 4 Main Event for $140,468.56 (from a $22 buy-in!).
