10 Ways to Become a Millionaire on PokerStars

Share On

199 millionaires.

That's how many poker players on PokerStars have become immediate millionaires via an online or live poker tournament since 2001.

Over the next 10 weeks, that number will go up by 10 starting with this weekend's $10m guaranteed Anniversary Sunday Million.

SCOOPs, Spin & Gos, Millionaire Challenges

How can one of those millionaires be you? Let's count the ways.

As mentioned it starts this Sunday, April 2 with the $10m Guaranteed Sunday Million. Celebrating the 11th year of PokerStars flagship Sunday tournament, $1m is guaranteed to the winner of this week's event.

If you're looking for a free and/or cheap way in to play, check the list of satellite qualifiers and freerolls here.

If winning the Sunday Million sounds like a stretch for you, here are a few other routes to becoming a millionaire over the next 10 weeks:

$1m Spin & Gos: For the next 10 weeks special edition $5 and $10 Spin & Gos will run that will pay out $1m first-place prizes.

Spin & Gos are 3-max Hyper-Turbo tournaments that spin a multiplier before the tourney starts to set the prize pool. For a limited time that multiplier could skyrocket the jackpot up to $1.2m with $1m to the winner and $100,000 to the runners-up.

Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP): With $55 million GTD the 2017 SCOOP will be the biggest series in online poker history.  At least two of those events will have $1m+ payouts to the winner.

PokerStars Championship presented by Monte Carlo Casino® Running April 25-May 5, the PokerStars Championship Monte Carlo will also award at least two million-dollar prizes.

Sure, those will most likely be in the $25,750 High Roller and $100,000 Super High Roller. But we all can dream right? Satellites to those events are running on PokerStars right now.

Millionaire Challenges: Complete a few challenges and you'll have your shot at two Millionaire Challenge finals - each with $1m first-place prizes - on May 10. The first qualifying window is April 6-17 and the second April 19-30.
