MicroMillions III Day 3 review: Beating the $5,000,000 guarantee

There is a $5,000,000 guarantee on the MicroMillion series. Five million bucks for small buy-in events. That should be a pretty hard nut to crack, right? Apparently not. We're just a quarter of the way through the 100 events (that's 25, okay) and we're almost at the $2,000,000 mark... and we haven't even got to the $1,000,000 guaranteed Main Event yet. That behemoth guarantees the winner a minimum $150,000 payout for a $22 buy-in!

Today's Sunday Storm runs as a special MicroMillions edition boasting a $300,000 guarantee on its $11 entry. That starts at 13.30 ET and is a must-play for the budget grinder. Good luck!
