The event will return as MicroMillions and it will be taking place from 16th to 30th July. With some $21 million already earmarked in prize money for 121 pow-wows, the event definitely has the financial clout to make a difference in the lives of all players playing on a budget and demonstrating exceptional poker prowess.
The MicroMillions Event is Upon Us

Tournaments are tailored for every wallet. You may enter with as little as $0.11, which will give you afford you the opportunity to explore some competitive poker without having to shoulder the financial burden yourself.
You may argue that this is an event for the masses. It may be so, but last year’s edition managed to add 85,000 people as active competitors who were quite happy to up the antes and pay quite the whopping amount, outpacing even the hallowed and venerable World Series of Poker (WSOP).
The Platinum Pass Beckons
