888 Millions Superstorm
The Classic is not the only exciting development over on 888poker.
888 is guaranteeing $8 million spread across 480 tournaments via the Millions Superstorm online tournament series that kicks off on September 10.
The Millions Superstorm will run until October 11 and will have buy-ins ranging from $5.50 to $530.
The series will culminate with a $1 million guaranteed Main Event that if players were to buy-in directly has a $320 sticker price. Daily freerolls are running in the 888poker client giving away seats to the Main Event.
The Main Event is structured as a multi-flight tournament: Day 1 flights kicked-off on August 23 and run through the end of the series, meaning there will be at least 50 Day 1 flights.
A fun promotion is currently running on Twitter for players to get involved.
