The schedule also includes four other events offering six-figure guarantees, as well as a handful of tournaments giving away five-figures. There’s definitely plenty of chances for players to win big for just a small investment.

Other Highlights

What makes MicroMillions 18 more special is the addition of a number of new events adopting a unique format.

As the tournament progresses, players will switch between small and large blinds, making the experience more fun and exciting.
