Turn your cents into big prizes in our newest tournament festival

How would you like to turn your cents into a share of $250,000? From October 5-11, take part in our latest online tournament festival for as little as $0.01.

Each of the 14 Common Cents tournaments scheduled comes with a guaranteed prize pool, ranging from $2,500 up to $100,000. To kick off the series, the very first event, on October 5 at 14:05 ET, will have a $100,000 Guaranteed prize pool, and only a one cent buy-in. Don’t miss out as the tournament winner will turn as little as one cent into a $10,000 first prize.

And by taking part, not only will you qualify for the Common Cents Leader Board and a shot at $1,000 in extra prizes (click here for more), but you could win a Main Event ticket for free!

For the first hour of each Common Cents tournament we’ll chose a random table every minute to receive free tickets to the $25,000 GTD Main Event. Over 500 players will receive a free ticket in each event and these players will compete for a first prize of $2,500. Want to buy into the Main Event instead? That’ll be less than a dollar - $0.99 to be exact.

Whether you’ve got a few cents lying around in your PokerStars account or you’re new to poker, Common Cents tournaments are the perfect way to win big for less!
