The 100-event online festival will run from July 18 through July 28 with a total of $5 million in guaranteed prize pools.
The series will offer a variety of buy-ins from 11 cents to $22. The series will begin with an $0.11 No-Limit Hold’em Hyper-Active Rebuy tournament and will end with the $22 MicroMillions Main Event set for July 28. The Main Event entry comes with a $1 million guaranteed prize pool along with at least $150,000 guaranteed for first place. Of the 100 events offered, 10 will have a guaranteed pool for a total of $100,000 or more. The series will also feature a wide variety of formats like turbos, rebuys, shootouts, $11 Sunday Storm specials, and the recently debuted Zoom Poker tournaments.
Team PokerStars Pro Marcin "Goral" Horecki has won the MicroMillions Player of the Series two of the four times and expressed his excitement at giving it another go. Said Horceki, “MicroMillions is a lot of fun and the range of tournaments and buy-ins is fantastic. The best thing about it is that the fields and prize pools are so big that it’s possible to turn a dollar or two into a five- or six-figure score in just a few hours.”
The fourth MicroMillions festival set a record as the largest online poker tournament series with a total of 1,572,760 individual tournament entries, breaking the MicroMillions III record of 1,308,994. The Main Event of MicroMillions IV was also the biggest in series history, boasting more than 68,000 entries and a prize pool of $1,361,620.
The biggest individual winner to date is MicroMillions II Main Event winner “SoyDelGlobo,” who turned his $22 buy-in into a $157,000 cash prize. “Ges26” was the winner of the MicroMillions IV Main Event, earning $140,469 after besting 68,081 players.
