Less than a week after PokerStars announced the tentative schedule for the 2015 Spring Championship Of Online Poker (SCOOP), the world’s largest online poker site revealed the 10th edition of the ever-popular MicroMillions will hit your computer screens on March 19.
Like in previous instalments of the MicroMillions series, MicroMillions 10 features 100 events with buy-ins starting as little at $0.11 and never more than an affordable $22. Again, PokerStars guarantees that no less than $5 million will be distributed to players across these 100 events, but if past festivals are anything to go by then that already impressive figure will grow even more substantial.
MicroMillions 10 begins on March 19 with the first five of 100 events and ends on March 29 and we can tell you that the only thing that is micro about this online poker festival is the tournament buy-ins because some of the guarantees are huge and would not look out of place in a tournament with a much costlier entry fee.
For example, on March 19 at 6:00pm, there is an $11 NL Hold’em freezeout that has a $150,000 prize pool while on march 21 at 4:00pm $150,000 is again guaranteed in a $2.22 NL Hold’em rebuy event!
Two of the largest guarantees are reserved for the final day on March 29. On this day you find the Sunday Storm Special Edition where $11 gets you a shot at a slice of $300,000 but it is the Main Event that impresses the most, guaranteeing at least $1,000,000 is up for grabs for a paltry $22 buy-in!
Once again, the MicroMillions Player of the Series returns and adds even more value into the already value-packed festival. Each time you reach the money places in a MicroMillions event you are awarded leader board points and the top 100 points earners win a prize.
