MicroMillions returns with big money in tow

The holidays aren't quite here yet, but if you're looking for some early shopping money, you might find a poker version of St. Nick on PokerStars this weekend.

Last night, MicroMillions returned for its ninth running. Yesterday alone, it paid out in the neighborhood of half a million bucks on buy-ins that started at eleven cents and never got bigger than $11.

So, imagine that. You buy into an event for a few bucks and win thousands before the day is done. That can happen. It will happen every day for the next week and a half. The only question is whether you're going to be involved.

Below, we've got all the results from Thursday's MicroMillions events. If you need any inspiration for the upcoming weekend of tournaments, have a look at those buy-ins and what the winners ended up taking away.

Now, go win some big cash.
