WSOP Ontario is back with another exciting tournament series, this time around, geared towards lower-stakes players. Named mini MILLION$, the series features very affordable buy-ins and rather generous guarantees across the board, including the CAD $100,000 Mystery Bounty Main Event.
According to the WSOP Ontario website, the goal of the series is to put the fun back into poker, allowing all players to get involved, have fun, and take a shot at big prizes without breaking the bank.
mini MILLION$ got underway on Sunday, Jan 15, and will run through the rest of the month and the first week of February. Ontario online poker players will have an opportunity to enter dozens of tournaments featuring different types, formats, and structures, including the hugely popular Mystery Bounties.
mini MILLION$ Main Event & Other Highlights
The Main Event of the series features a buy-in of just CAD $10.50 and an impressive guarantee of $100,000. The tournament will be played in the Mystery Bounty format, with the top bounty of $10,000 up for grabs. Players will come together for the final stage of the Main Event close to the very end of the series, on Feb 5.
The mini Ontario MILLION$ event is another great value tournament to keep an eye out for. With a buy-in of just $5 and a guaranteed prize pool of $25,000, the event will feature numerous Day 1 flights available until Jan 22, when the final day of action takes place to crown the winners.
There are also several Sunday Ten Grand tournaments scattered throughout the schedule, each featuring a buy-in of $25 and a guaranteed prize pool of $10,000, alongside many smaller but still very attractive tournaments.

Loads of Affordable Action on the Horizon
While most tournament series are focused on professionals and serious grinders, the Ontario mini Million$ Series is all about recreational players, with most buy-ins in single digits. You do not need a big bankroll to get involved, and yet, prize pools are quite generous (between $500 and $2000 for most events).
For those looking to save even more money on buy-ins, WSOP Ontario is running many satellites, especially for the Main Event, so you can win your seat for pennies. As far as affordability is concerned, this is one of the most affordable series we have seen in a while, and hopefully, a sign of things to come in the new year.
There are plenty of tournaments to choose from every single day between now and Feb 6, so you have a lot of freedom to plan ahead as well. Whether you prefer to play on the weekends or during the week, you will have your pick. That said, the action on the weekends, especially Sundays, is better, with bigger guarantees and more events to choose from.
All that is left is to sign up with WSOP Ontario if you already do not have an account yet, make a deposit, and join the action. Micro Million$ events are running around the clock, so you can jump straight into the thick of things.
