PokerStars US to Host Huge Sunday Party with $1.5 Million GTD - PokerStars US Million Dollar Sunday scheduled for April 30th with $1 million guaranteed in shared player pools.

Usually, March is “In like a lion, out like a lamb,” but April is set to go out roaring this year on PokerStars US. On the final Sunday of the month, the operator is putting $1.5 million in guarantees up for grabs across its two jurisdictions.

April 30 will be a big day in real money US online poker as PokerStars US throws a huge Sunday party with $1.5 million in guaranteed prizes. The new shared player pool between New Jersey and Michigan will have a cool million in guarantees on its own, while Pennsylvania online poker players can look forward to a Half Million Dollar Sunday.

Half those guaranteed prizes are locked up in the Million Dollar Sunday Special at 5:00 pm on both clients. Players on the combined PokerStars NJ/PokerStars MI network can look forward to $500k guaranteed for that game alone, while PokerStars PA players will be playing for at least $250k in the extra special Sunday Special.

There is a lot of interest in the upcoming games, as expressed by US Ambassador David Kaye. “After a successful US SCOOP series, PokerStars continues to push the envelope of what’s possible in the USA regulated market. I’m excited to compete in what will go down as the most epic tournament day in the history of our emerging market!”
