(Press Release) San Jose, Costa Rica – August 18, 2014 – It turns out there are a million ways to get into Winning Millions – at least it’s starting to look like it. Americas Cardroom announced an expanded satellite schedule for its highly anticipated $1 million guaranteed poker tournament schedule for this December. Just added to the schedule are six satellites that feed into the nightly $100+$9 satellite and another nightly satellite was added for just $15+$1.50 that guarantees at least one seat in the Winning Millions tournament.
"The response to Winning Millions has been incredible," stated Michael Harris, spokesperson for Americas Cardroom. "While we've only launched our satellite schedule a few weeks ago, we're expanding it to help more players win a seat and grow the prize pool beyond the $1 million guarantee."
Scheduled to get underway on December 14th
, Winning Millions is a Texas Hold'em tournament featuring a $1 million prize pool – the first of its size and scope since early 2011 for US players. Poker players can buy directly in for $500+$40 or win their spot through a satellite.
The Winning Millions satellite schedule is packed with a number of daily events that feed into two nightly satellites with $100+$9 and $15+$1.50 buy-ins. They both pay out at least one seat in the Winning Millions $1 million guarantee on December 14th. Poker players can also win a spot in the $15+$1.50 qualifier through daily freerolls at 10:00am and 1:30pm.
New to the schedule are daily 10:00am, 12:30pm and 1:20pm ET tournaments with $5+$0.5 buy-ins that pay out a seat in the $100+9 satellite. Players will also find $1+0.10 satellites at 3:15pm, 6:15pm and 7pm ET that feed into the same $100+$9 satellite. For those who don't find a satellite that works for them, Americas Cardroom has also included Sit & Go's running constantly from as low as $24+$1.20.
