$10 million guaranteed, and $1 million to the winner in the anniversary edition next month…
The Sunday Million turns 13 next month, and we’d like you to be part of the celebrations.
On Sunday 14 April, the highlight of the online poker week will have a guaranteed prize pool of $10 million. The winner will log off with a guaranteed $1 million.
That means one player will log off as a millionaire.
The buy-in for this special event will be $215, up (for one week only) from the now regular buy-in of $109. But between now and the event itself we’re offering a variety of ways that players can take part.
Satellites to the Sunday Million 13th Anniversary are designed to give everyone the chance to take part. The cheapest you’ll find will cost just $0.90 to play.
Then from March 25, there will be daily $15 satellites. Each will guarantee 100 seats into the Sunday Million.
The Sunday Million is the world’s biggest weekly poker tournament. Since it started on March 6, 2006 (the same week Jeff Williams was winning the EPT season 2 Grand Final in Monaco) it has become an icon of the online game. There have been more than 600 editions in that time.
Thanks to the $1 million guaranteed prize pool, first place regularly pays more than $100,000. That amounts to more than $750 million in prize money in the 13 years since Canadian ‘aaaaaaaa’ earned $173,843 in the first Sunday Million.
“We’re thrilled to be a part of this poker milestone, but the credit goes to all of the poker lovers out there who have made the Sunday Million happen nearly every week for the past 13 years, so we hope to see them at the tables on April 14,” said Severin Rasset, Director of Poker Innovation and Operations at The Stars Group.
Satellites into the Sunday Million 13th Anniversary are running now. Next week we’ll have details of how you can Spin and Go your way to a ticket, as well as how to win that $1 million top prize.
You can get more details of the event, including details of the structure and pay-outs, as well as how to qualify, on the Sunday Million homepage.
Later this month, we’ll also be launching special Sunday Million Spin and Go’s, with buy-ins starting at just $5. The top prize will be $1 million, with Sunday Million tickets to be won along the way. You can find more details of that on the PokerStars Blog later this month.
