Table Of Contents
This season, celebrate the 2022 Qixi Festival with the popular Zodiac Tournament Series on Natural8. With some of the biggest prizes in Asia, special Mystery Bounty events, and ¥35,000,000 ($5,000,000) in guarantees across all events, the Zodiac Festival is set to wow!
The series began on July 31 and runs until August 14, and you will be able to participate in the remaining events where there are special Zodiac avatars waiting to be added into your collection. With buy-ins that start from ¥50 to ¥5,500, there will be something for every budget.
Zodiac Festival Highlights
While the Zodiac Festival features a host of exciting events, there are a few tournaments that stand out from the crowd; in particular, the daily Zodiac Festival Main Events, Superstack HR and Mystery Bounty Events.
The Zodiac Festival Main Event runs every day, and comes with a buy-in of ¥388. From Monday to Saturday, the guarantee is ¥300,000, with the minimum prize pool doubling for the Sunday Main Event editions.
Poker's elite players will be all over the most expensive event, Superstack HR, which has a buy-in of ¥5,500 and like the Main Event has a guaranteed prize pool of ¥300,000, which also doubles in size on Sundays.
There are also two mystery bounty events scheduled throughout the Zodiac Festival, with the first having its final stage on Sunday, August 7. Starting flights are currently underway for this tournament, with the buy-in costing ¥210 while the guarantee stands at ¥2 million.
The second mystery bounty event is catered towards those with bigger bankrolls, and has its final stage a week later on Sunday, August 14. The entry fee is slightly higher at ¥2,100, but that means a bigger guarantee of ¥5 million.
Take advantage of the Zodiac satellites, which are now readily available in the tournament lobby, if you want to buy into the events at a fraction of the cost.
