How to play the Sunday Billion

The Sunday Billion takes place at 15:00 ET every Sunday, and has a buy-in of 1,000,000 chips. You’ll find it listed in the PokerStars Main Lobby under the ‘Tournaments’ tab by searching for ‘Billion’ in the ‘Find a tournament’ text filter (make sure the Play Money button is ticked in the upper right of the filters area). 

You can purchase Play Money chips from the Cashier by clicking ‘Buy Play Money Chips’. We recommend the $9.99 package of 2M chips, but prices start at just $1.99. See here for more on how to buy chips.

If you enjoy the huge prize pools of the Sunday Billion, then look out for the High Roller tourneys. They take place every two hours, with buy-ins from 10M chips to 50M chips.
