MicroMillions has officially returned to PokerStars! The 18th edition of the popular series kicked off on November 19 and will run through to November 29, with a whopping $3.5 million guarantee.
The latest edition of the MicroMillions festival is bigger than ever, with more than 100 events to choose from. The affordable entry fees, ranging from $1.10 to $22, give players the chance to take a shot at massive prizes without breaking the bank.
As usual, the series culminates in the MicroMillions Main Event which will see players compete for a huge guarantee of $1 million, for a buy-in of only $22.
The MicroMillions Main Event will crown a winner on Nov 29. Do note that you can even take part in the event for a much lower amount, via special edition Spin & Go’s which you can enter for as little as $0.35.
Winning a Main Event ticket will be your ultimate goal, but these Spin & Go’s are also awarding loads of other prizes, including tickets to other MicroMillions events as well as up to $3,500 cash.
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.
What makes MicroMillions 18 more special is the addition of a number of new events adopting a unique format. One of them is “Slug Blinds“, where players begin the action with 100 big blinds, with the first two levels involving a longer period of 40 and 20 minutes respectively. Upon the conclusion of the second level, the action shifts to a much faster pace, adopting the normal six-minute turbo format.
Players may also try their hand at the new “Alternating Blinds“, which involve two blind structures – small and large. As the tournament progresses, players will switch between small and large blinds, making the experience more fun and exciting. Showtime Hold’em is also making a return, with three tournaments featuring the no-limit hold’em variant.
The schedule is comprised if a wide range of game types and formats, including the traditional NLHE & PLO, as well as Fusion, Showtime, Eight-Game Mix, Razz, 6+, 2-7 Triple Draw, Seven Stud Hi/Lo and many more.
Among the remaining events you shouldn’t miss are the $11 buy-in, $60K GTD NLHE 7-Max (Nov 27), $11 buy-in, $100K GTD NLHE 8-Max (Nov 28), and the $5.50 buy-in, $200K GTD NLHE Progressive KO.
