Initially, the operator set the total guarantees at $1 million. However, once the series took off, the operator was greeted with a turnout that was beyond their expectations.
In response, it bumped up the guarantees multiple times, even hosted a Double Up Weekend where guarantees for all the weekend tournaments were raised 100%. It took the total series guarantee to over $1.4 million, up by 35%.
The festival eventually wrapped up on Monday, producing prize pools well over a million more than what the operator had originally guaranteed.
As per PRO’s calculations, the operator distributed $2.2 million to players across 60 tournaments while collecting $186k in rake. Nearly 29,000 entries participated in the events.
