Take on the world in this unique online tournament series!

The Play Money Masters, June 25-July 12, is a tournament series that brings all the excitement and drama of a major international poker festival to Play Money players. With a huge range of tournament types and buy-ins, there’s a tourney to suit every player.

The series features 51 separate and unique events over 18 days, including:

  • Championship Events for different poker variants, from No Limit Hold’em to Stud, Pot Limit Omaha, Razz and more
  • A Main Event, featuring a 10M chip buy-in
  • A Ladies Event (and also a Men’s Event)

Buy-ins start at 50K chips, up to 1M chips for Championship Events and 10M for the Main Event. Can you follow in the footsteps of last year’s champion? Puerto Rico’s ‘vickman25’ took down the 2014 Grand Finale for a prize of 155M chips!

How to play the Play Money Masters

There will be up to three events played each day of the series, each designed to last up to 4-5 hours. You can find the tournaments in the PokerStars client by searching for ‘Masters’ in the ‘Find a tournament’ filter.

This year you’ll also be able to qualify for the Main Event in 1M satellites, running at 14:00 on July 9, 10 and 11.

Don’t have enough Play Money chips to take part? If Play Money purchases are available in your region you can buy chips directly within the client by opening the Cashier and clicking ‘Buy Play Money Chips’. Prices start from just $1.99, while a bundle of 7.5M chips for $24.99 will be enough to buy in to most events.
