PokerStars Announces Two Major Online Tournaments For April & May
Online poker is going full blast as two more events have been added to the already jam-packed months of April and May!
PokerStars has just announced the schedule of two of the world’s most popular online tournament series, the MicroMillions and the Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP).
The 17th edition of MicroMillions will kick off on April 19 and will run through to April 26, promising a week of online action for low-stakes players and fans.
The tournament series is the perfect place for those who are keen on turning their small investment into huge winnings!
With buy-ins ranging from $1.10 to $11, players can take a shot at seven-figure guarantees even with their limited bankroll.
The online poker festival will culminate in the $11 buy-in Sunday Storm Special Edition which takes place on the final day of the series, on April 26. The event carries a guarantee of $1 million. Last week, Sunday Storm awarded $250,000 in prize money to winners.
You can directly buy-in to Sunday Storm, or participate in satellites through special Spin $ Go’s for a fraction of the price. And here’s another thing to get excited about – if you take part in the $11 buy-in Sunday Storm anniversary on April 26, you’ll get the chance to win a ticket to the $25,000 SCOOP freeroll. The SCOOP is another upcoming online poker festival sponsored by PokerStars. The SCOOP freeroll is scheduled for April 29.
The entire MicroMillions schedule features an average buy-in of $3.43, as well as $26,700 in average guarantee, with a wide range of variants and formats available, including 8-Max, 6-Max, Progressive KO, Turbo, Hyper-Turbo, 2-7 Single Draw and PLO. Up to 13 events will take place daily throughout the series.
Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP)
After MicroMillions 17, PokerStars will then host the popular SCOOP festival which kicks off on April 30 and will run for three weeks, until May 19. Players will compete for a massive $85 million guarantee.
SCOOP’s May 2019 edition achieved record-breaking numbers, after awarding more than $100 million in prize money to winners – a first in the history of online poker.
SCOOP 2019 featured a total of 219 events, and attracted over 1 million entries. The tournament paid out a staggering $105,133,091 in total prize money. PokerStars is aiming replicate that success this year.
The final schedule of the 2020 SCOOP is still being worked on and will be released once completed.
