The MicroMillions 5 starts tomorrow!

The PokerStars series which creates big prizes for micro buy-ins is back. That's right, the MicroMillions starts tomorrow. Expect lots of tournaments with great structures, a couple with crazy ones, and a huge mix of games that give you the chance to win some serious dollar for a tiny outlay. There's a $5,000,000 festival guarantee but you can expect that number to be smashed if the last MicroMillions was anything to go by. The MicroMillions V runs 18-28 July with buy-ins ranging from $0.11 to the Main Event's $22.

It's a bittersweet moment for us on the PokerStarsBlog because not only does it involve a lot of scheduling to cover every single tournament, but it's also the only series where we could genuinely play every single event and still have enough left in our bankroll to purchase a commiseration pint of the fizzy stuff. You can play all 100 events for just $446.57. Unfortunately we are not allowed to play, but you are. Fill your boots. It's truly a time of merriment and big prize pool shot taking.

Admittedly, we don't advise that you try to play all 100. We saw what happened to Andre 'acoimbra' Coimbra when he tried to (see for yourself). Sleep, albeit occasionally, is your friend.
