PokerStars Announce $5 Million Sunday Million Anniversary

Posted at 11:15 2011-02-25

While many of poker’s land-based tournament series appear stuck in a constant plateau, the same can’t be said for the online poker world, which appears to be going from strength to strength. Every day there is a new freeroll, a new promotion and bigger tournament prize pools than we’ve ever seen before.

Fast on the heels of Full Tilt Poker’s record-breaking FTOPS series, today PokerStars have announced that they will be celebrating the fifth anniversary of the Sunday Million in style with a massive $5 million guaranteed prize pool! Not only will first place be guaranteed a lazy $1 million in change but they will also receive a Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 to cruise down the highway with their newly found wealth.

It all goes down on the morning of Monday March 7thhere in Australia, with the Sunday Million tournament kicking off at 8:30am AEDST. The buy-in is the usual $215 but if that’s too rich for you, there are plenty of satellites running in the build up to this huge event.

One hour before the tournament kicks off there will be a 1,000-seat guaranteed $11 turbo satellite which will be massive. If that’s too much for you there will be regular $1 feeder satellites leading up to it. To find the satellites, open the PokerStars lobby and select “Tourney à Special”.

You could potentially turn $1 into $1 million and a brand new Lamborghini!

But why spend even $1 when you could qualify for free?

Our regular PokerStars Sunday Million Freeroll has been moved forward a week to give you the chance to freeroll your way into the $5 million Sunday Million Anniversary Special.

On Sunday March 6th at the bright and early time of 5:00am we’ll be running a $15,000 PokerStars Sunday Million 5th Anniversary Satellite Freeroll where 45 tickets to the Sunday Million will be given away along with thousands of dollars in cash and other prizes.
