The world’s biggest tournament series for micro-stakes online poker players returns this month at PokerStars. The latest edition of MicroMillions kicks off on July 17 and will run through July 31, with 208 events on the schedule.
As usual, MicroMillions is about playing for small stakes and having a chance at massive prizes. The most expensive buy-in of the series will be $55 (the only high-roller event on the docket), followed by the $22 Main Event. Yet, despite the low buy-ins, the series will feature an incredible $4.3 million guaranteed prize pool.
Those not already familiar with MicroMillions may be in for a surprise, but for seasoned PokerStars players, the festival comes as a new opportunity to kick-start their poker bankrolls and have a shot at some huge prizes.
Kicking off on July 17, at least 12 unique MicroMillions events will be on the schedule every day, with buy-ins starting at just $1.1. Of 208 events, 27 will be offered at $1.10, while 69 tournaments will have a $3.30 buy-in. The main brunt of MicroMillions events will come at the $5.50 price point, with entry into 95 tournaments set at this level.
