      $1 million Spin & Go

      The fastest ever way to win seven-figures is back right now. Once again the $5 buy-in Spin & Go tournaments have a potential jackpot prize pool of $1.2 million.

      That's $1 million to the winner, and $100,000 each to the two runners-up.

      There have already been three millionaires so far from this promotion, how many more will we see?



      $1 million Sunday Storm

      As part of their Millionaire Month celebrations, PokerStars have announced their $11 buy-in Sunday Storm will have a $1 million guarantee on April 19 at 13:30 ET.

      This is the 4th Anniversary of their marquee low stakes tournament and for just an $11 buy-in, the winner is guaranteed a first prize of at least $100,000.

      There will also be 2,000 tickets to this event guaranteed in a series of qualifiers from just $0.11, running around the clock at PokerStars.


      Millionaire Month

      Between April 6 to 30, two separate rounds of 'missions' will take place to determine who will become a millionaire.

      Complete a number of challenges to earn tickets into 12 x $150,000 All-in Shootouts. The winner of each will compete in a six handed tournament on May 10 with a first prize of $1 million. Two millionaires will be crowned.

      The challenges include making a deposit and winning a cash game hand with a specific hand, like pocket fives.

      Part 1



      Part 2



      SCOOP deposit raffle

      Starting on May 2 to celebrate SCOOP, anyone who makes a deposit of $25 or more using bonus code SCOOP2015 will be entered into an All-in Shootout to win a number of SCOOP tickets, including 16 x $10,300 Main Event tickets.

      Everyone entered into this raffle also gets to take part in a SCOOP Last Longer contest with the other rafflers, with a first prize of $50,000.

      I'm wondering if the 'Mission-hands' have to be won at showdown or not. :f_wink:

      If you want to be sure you can always send a mail to support@pokerstars.com.
      They will know the answer for sure.

      Good luck with grinding at the NLHE cash games tomorrow and the rest of the month for the challenges :gl:

      Cheers,

      Was playing few $5 Spin&Goes the other day and got a $50 one. Didn't know that odds of getting one are 0,4%. Glad that I managed to win it :f_biggrin:

      Why do you call it a "promotion", when in reality it is a three player poker tournament, with an insanely high rake, some of which is used to collect a prize pool for a lottery.

      Really lottery odds to make a millionaire. The deal is to play as many tourneys as possible on other buy ins and you can still profit a lot, with those minor prizes, and maybe some thousands of dollars.
