The live tournament circuit depends on online satellites to produce the mega prizepools that players love to compete for. The Aussie Millions is no exception and 2011 looks set to be another big year for the series with a juicy schedule of lead-up events and a main event bustling with online satellite providers keen to enter players into the field left and right.
Ladbrokes Poker is one of those poker rooms who will be sending players to the Aussie Millions and earlier this week they released details about their online satellite program to the series at Crown Casino in Melbourne in January.
Right now you can qualify for the Aussie Millions with Ladbrokes Poker, with buy-ins starting from as little as €1.50.
Ladbrokes Poker Aussie Millions Satellites will award massive packages paid out in Euros worth around $19,000AUD. The big component of course is almost $5,000AUD for travel expenses, which when you’re flying in from one of the Australian capital cities probably amounts to a couple of hundred dollars at most for airfares. That means you’re banking extra cash on top to boost your bankroll or get you in a few extra tournaments. That is definitely one of the advantages of the Euro Satellites to the Aussie Millions.
The package also includes 10 nights accommodation at the brand spanking new Crown Metropol Hotel (that ain’t cheap) and, just as a sweetener, two tickets to the Australian Open Tennis Championships’ Men’s Final. With all of the action on the side of your package, it would be easy to forget that you also have your entry into the $10,500AUD Main Event with the chance to take down a lazy couple of million dollars in the process.
You can get that dream run started by competing in the sub-satellite series that starts at just €1.50. The smallest satellites require players to multiple levels to get to the target tournament, but the good news is that you can buy in at any of the sub-satellite levels of your choosing, or directly to the monthly €1,500 + €100 direct qualifier. The other buyin levels are €4 + €0.40, €25 + €2.50, and €200 + €15, each of these satellites awards tickets to the next step tournament.
The Aussie Millions gets underway on January 13 and wraps on January 31 with the Main Event Final Table. The TV crew will be back and all of the associated festivities including some of the world’s highest profile professional players, big cash game action and various special events will all be in the mix during the month.
If the Ladbrokes Aussie Millions Satellites sound like they are for you, you can get started on the site with a handy 100% up to $750 deposit bonus. Don’t forget that Ladbrokes Poker have just released anonymous tables too, for those that want to play anonymously giving you an extra reason to download Ladbrokes and get on the way to qualifying for the 2011 Aussie Millions Poker Championship Main Event.
