"PokerStars today announced MicroMillions, the most affordable and inclusive online poker tournament series to date. It will enable poker players of all abilities and stakes to win huge prize money for a tiny outlay. The online series takes place from March 15-25, features 100 events and has $5,000,000 in tournament guarantees.

Specifically aimed at recreational and micro stakes players, but with guaranteed prizes large enough to attract players from all levels, MicroMillions has buy-ins starting at just 11 cents, daily $1 tourneys offering up to $100,000 guaranteed, as well as dozens of $2, $3, $4, $5, $8 and $10 tourneys and a $22 Main Event that features a $1 million guarantee on March 25.

Events will run around the clock, meaning that players from all over the world will have the chance to turn just a few dollars into thousands. Tournaments run at the following times on virtually every day: 01.30, 04.00, 06.00, 08.30, 10.00, 12.00, 13.30, 15.30, 17.00 and 21.00 (all times ET).

Team PokerStars Pro Lex Veldhuis said: “MicroMillions is one of the best things I’ve seen so far. Back when I played penny and micro-stakes games, I was mesmerised by the big tournament series’ and always hoped to be able to play one day. MicroMillions actually offers players from those stakes the chance to be part of a great tournament series. I think it's a very logical step with all the different online tournament festivals that PokerStars offers. I'm definitely going to play a lot of the events, just because I think it's so awesome.”

While the majority of MicroMillions events are No Limit Hold’em, there are also plenty of other games, including Pot Limit Omaha, Omaha Hi/Lo, Draw, Stud, 8-Game, and formats including Turbo, Rebuy, Shootout, Knockout, Big Ante and 6-Max.

The MicroMillions series extends PokerStars’ online festival offerings, which already includes the richest and most prestigious series in online poker – the World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) – along with the Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP), and the Turbo Championship of Online Poker (TCOOP).

Pokerstars is moving its attention to the micro players, and this is very good to read. If we think about the millions of players around there, we have to remember that 90% (I believe so) plays micro levels, which means they are the biggest part of the regulars in those rooms. I use to think about a project. If a football stadium sell game tickets at $50 and can only get 1,000 spectators per week, wouldn’t it be better if the sell it for $10 and get 20,000 spectators per week? This is what PS is doing, showing its appreciation for the players at micro levels.

Only thing stopping Clubs from doing that is it attracts the wrong crowds.

Stars isn't a real place so i think its high time they devoted some attention to the small fries. I mean its not like they can only run so many games.

Great news for microstakes players like me.
I will for sure have a closer look at the tournament schedule and will try to play some of them.
Guess it will be a nice experience.

Nice to see a poker site organizing such an event where the smaller players
have the opportunity of hitting big.
That will make it easier and cheaper for the High players to get their hands
to some decent money Smile

It's weird to hear that pokerstars has banned countries that are not allowed for their residences to participate on the tables...

Still, if you ask me this promotion is pretty nice, maybe i'll participate too Big Smile

this is a nice event. With a few dollar you can win a lot. I guess there will be a lot of people playing and so the pricepool will grow and will produce a huge pot with nice prices. Godd luck to all and perhaps we'll see us at the table Smile

i always like to see more offers for the micro players- they are the biggest crowd out there for sure, so why not giving them what they deserve? more attention, more tournaments, smaller buy ins, more beer, cheaper babes, private plane, villa's in the bahamas and so on Big Smile

Ever have plans to come to Canada let me know and ill pick u up from the Airport. You sound like my kind of people Big Smile

The 22$ Main Event is gonna be MASSIVE!!!!!!

This whole promotion has made me rethink playing on Stars. I mean even reading about how a mobber entered a 55 cent 1k gtd was almost too juicy to bear.

The real nice thing for Micro players would be to have different raking system
so that clearing a bonus is easier.
Its almost impossible to clear any bonus while playing at micros these days
at all the sites using the weighted contributed.
