"We're thrilled to be entering our 10th season," said Danny McDonagh, APPT President. "The APPT has played a key role in growing poker in the region since it launched in 2007, with more than USD$61 million being awarded in APPT Main Event prizes during that time."
Following the opening Macau Millions stop, the APPT will then head to Melbourne, Australia, and the beautiful Crown Casino for the prestigious 2016 Aussie Millions, taking place Jan. 13-Feb. 1.
