It’s nearly time. Soon, you’ll have the chance to play for a share of $10 million in guaranteed prizes in what is set to be one of the biggest online poker tournaments of the year.

The Sunday Million 16th Anniversary will take place on March 20, 12:00 EST (17:05 WET).

You can buy in directly for $215. There’s also dozens of satellites and other options for potentially gaining entry at a lower cost, or even for free.

Here we take a look at those options. Because you really don’t want to miss it!

Fast Track

Fast Track satellites are running now with four buy-ins available. Succeed in any round and you will earn a ticket for the next round. This is a versatile route, because you can start with whatever round suits your bankroll:

  • Round 1: $0.55
  • Round 2: $1.50
  • Round 3: $5
  • Final Round: $20

Survive the final round and you’ll have yourself a seat in the $215 Sunday Million Anniversary. Click the “$10M Sunday Million” tab in the PokerStars lobby, followed by “Fast Track”.

Spin & Gos

Sunday Million Anniversary Spin & Gos are available at three buy-in levels – $0.50, $4 and $20. Each offers the chance to win $215 seats to the tournament, as well as satellite tickets for the event.

The greater the stakes, the greater your chances of winning direct entry to Sunday Million Anniversary ticket. There’s also cash prizes and satellite tickets available in each Spin & Go.

In the $4 and $20 games, you’ll have the added excitement of playing for a potential prize of up to $1 million! (To see probabilities for prizes at each level, click here.)

Click the “Spin & Go” tab in the PokerStars lobby to find these games.

MTT satellites

You could call this the classic route to satellite entry. MTT satellites are running around the clock from now until the Sunday Million Anniversary kicks off.

New $1.10Mega satellites have recently been added, each with at least one seat guaranteed. Five of these per day will also have five added seats making for over $1,000 in added value.

Another great option is the $11 Mega satellites, of which there’s one per day. Each has 100 seats guaranteed (200 seats on Sunday).

Aside from that, direct satellites are running from as little as $2.20 with rebuys, and $5.50 with re-entries. You can also find Phased satellites running for just $0.55. Make it through to Phase 2 for a shot at entry.

Click on the “$10M Sunday Million” tab and then “MTT Sats” to see the full list of upcoming satellites. If you prefer SNGs, click the “SNG” tab.

Scheduled Freebuys

The absolute cheapest way to give yourself a shot at gaining entry to the Sunday Million Anniversary is to look out for freerolls and freebuys. The latter are plentiful and running around the clock.

In freebuy satellites, your first entry is completely free. You have no obligation to rebuy – but you can purchase unlimited rebuys for a given time period as well as one add-on.

Freebuy satellites typically have one seat guaranteed for the SM Anniversary and rebuys costs $0.27. Again, we’d like to stress… you can have one shot in each of these games without spending a dime.

Click the “$10M Sunday Million”, then “MTT sats”, then search “freebuy”.
