PokerStars Celebrating Five Year Anniversary of the Sunday Million TournamentTuesday, March 1st, 2011 by admin
PokerStars has been the most successful poker site in the history of online poker and they’ll be celebrating another milestone this coming Sunday (March 6th 2011). On March 6th it’ll be the fifth anniversary of the PokerStars Sunday Million tournament and to celebrate the milestone, PokerStars has decided to offer a wicked promotion. If you’ve never played in the Sunday Million before now is the perfect chance, as the prize pool will be way bigger than normal and there will also be a special prize for the eventual winner of the tournament.
On a normal Sunday at PokerStars the Sunday Million has a guaranteed prize pool of $1M, but PokerStars will be adding a ton of money to the event this coming week to celebrate the tournament’s anniversary. Rather than only offering the normal $1M prize pool, this week’s tournament will feature a $5M guaranteed prize pool with the eventual winner taking home at least $1M from the total prize pool.
Not only will the winner walk away with a 7-figure payday, but they’ll also be the brand new owner of a Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 in black. This luxury vehicle alone is worth playing in the tournament this Sunday, but with a 7-figure cash prize also awarded to the winner, this is easily the best online poker tournament I can remember in a long time. The buy-in for the PokerStars Sunday Million will still be $215 and you’ll still have the chance to earn a seat into the event through inexpensive satellite tournaments running this entire week.
PokerStars will be running plenty of $1+ satellites this week to ensure that as many players as possible can compete in this legendary Sunday Million. With a huge playing field a certainty this week in the Sunday Million there will be plenty of huge cash prizes awarded to the top players. There is no way I’m missing the chance to become a millionaire and the proud new owner of a Gallardo this weekend and neither should you.
It should be noted that PokerStars is also allowing players the chance to buy-in to the Sunday Million directly using their FPP’s although it’ll cost 13.5K FPP’s. If you don’t have that many FPP’s you can try playing in the FPP satellites that’ll all be awarding seats into the Sunday Million. If you’re used to playing in the Sunday Million with a prize pool of under $2M you can expect it to be roughly triple that amount this week.
