Sunday Million 13th Anniversary guarantees $1m first prize

The $215 buy-in is back at the Sunday Million but only for one special event on April 14.

The 13th Anniversary of the biggest weekly tournament in online poker will guarantee $10 million overall with $1 million to the eventual winner. 

You may recall the 12th Anniversary event famously suffered an overlay of $1.2 million in February last year. This prompted PokerStars to try again with the Take 2 event in April, which this time easily met the guarantee by attracting 41,948 players and 14,362 re-entries. Dutch player 'Daenarys T' took home the big prize of $1,000,043 for the win.

With the Anniversary event this time taking place in April this year it would suggest that the timing of the 12th Anniversary tournament played a role in the overlay (it happened during SuperBowl weekend), though PokerStars refuted this at the time. Although the Sunday Million buy-in has halved for the weekly tournament to $109, this event will be at the old $215 price point. 

“We’re thrilled to be a part of this poker milestone, but the credit goes to all of the poker lovers out there who have made the Sunday Million happen nearly every week for the past 13 years, so we hope to see them at the tables on April 14,” said Severin Rasset, Director of Poker Innovation and Operations at The Stars Group.

Satellites and Spin & Go qualifiers start soon, with daily $15 qualifiers that guarantee 100 seats a night starting on March 25.
