Aussie Millions Announces 2019 Schedule Featuring 26 ANTON Ring Events
In the midst of the 2018 Aussie Millions, Crown Melbourne officials announced that the 2019 Aussie Millions will take place from Tuesday, Jan. 15 until Monday, Feb. 4.
The Aussie Millions is Australasia's longest running and largest poker festival. Next year, the festival once again plans to attract players from dozens of countries throughout the world thanks to the nearly 100 poker tables set-up for the event at Crown's award-winning complex featuring a 560,000 square meter entertainment complex and 1,600 rooms in three separate hotels. The action-packed schedule is expected to generate approximately A$24 million in prize pools.

The three-week schedule will feature the official gold ring event, satellites, and cash games. A total of 26 ANTON Jewelry gold rings will be awarded throughout the festival.
While the exact tournaments will be unveiled at a later date, the buy-ins will range from A$1,150 to A$50,000. This means that the six-figure high roller tournaments are omitted in next year's schedule.
The highlight of the festival will, of course, be the 2019 Aussie Millions A$10,600 Main Event which is expected to attract at least 700 entrants and a prize pool of around A$7 million. The eight-day event will feature three opening flights on Jan. 27-29 with players bagging chips competing for five more days on Jan. 30 to Feb. 3 until a winner is crowned.
"The 2018 Aussie Millions is proving to be our biggest and best to date, and we can’t wait to see what the 2019 tournament will bring"
Satellites for the Main Event will be held throughout the year and during next year's festival as well, providing players with varying bankrolls a chance to compete for the coveted Championship Ring.
Aussie Millions Tournament Director Joel Williams couldn't be more excited about how this year's festival is shaping up and the prospects for 2019 and beyond.
“The 2018 Aussie Millions is proving to be our biggest and best to date, and we can’t wait to see what the 2019 tournament will bring as the poker stage has never been brighter, and the team are already hard at work to make the next event the biggest and best yet,” said Williams in a press release.
The full event-by-event schedule is expected to be released soon on the Aussie Millions website.
