More than a decade since its launch, PokerStars’ MicroMillions continues to be a hit, especially among newcomers and aspiring players who are just starting in their careers, as well as micro grinders aiming to build a decent bankroll to level up their poker games.
MicroMillions has become very popular that PokerStars has since been running it as an annual series, and players won’t have to wait long to compete in the latest edition of the festival as it kicks off in a few days with over $4 million in guarantees up for grabs.
PokerStars MicroMillions Back in July
The latest edition of the MicroMillions series will run from July 2-16 and offers $4.4 million in guaranteed prize pool, spread out across a massive schedule of 208 tournaments. Players will again get the chance to compete in a wide variety of formats and variants, all with buy-ins ranging from $1.10 to $55.
The MicroMillions Main Event is easily the main highlight of the series, with the tournament boasting a huge $500,000 guarantee for an affordable buy-in of only $22. It will take place on July 16 and will adopt an 8-max progressive knockout format, which means players can earn some cash without necessarily reaching the final table.
Players kick off the action with a 25,000 stack played to ten-minute levels. The tournament allows up to five re-entries, with late registration staying open for three hours and five minutes.
The reigning MicroMillions Main Event champion is Brazil’s “matthew085” who won the tournament in 2022 after outlasting a massive field of 27,544 entries for a total prize of $36,295 including bounties.
Cheaper Options to Enter the Main Event
Despite the modest $22 entry fee for the Main Event, PokerStars is still giving players more options to win their way into the tournament for a much cheaper price. The site is running satellites, plus there are Spin & Go tournaments available for as low as $0.40 which players can convert into a Main Event seat.
Apart from the Main Event, PokerStars will also be giving away tickets to other MicroMillions events. Overall, there’s $10,000 up for grabs in added-value satellites, an extra $40,000 offered via freeroll events, plus special edition Spin & Go’s to help players get in on the action.
