MicroMillions II is designed for recreational and micro stakes players, but the guaranteed prizes are large enough to attract players from all levels. In the first MicroMillions festival, which took place in March, Team PokerStars Pro Marcin ‘Goral’ Horecki, from Poland, topped the Player of the Series leaderboard, having cashed in 34 of the 89 events he played. His first-place finish on the leaderboard meant he also scooped a 2013 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure package worth $15,000.
“It’s a fantastic series for players of all levels,” said Horecki. “Last time I tried to play as many events as possible and it turned out to be a great move for me. The very affordable buy-in levels are perfect for micro-stakes players who dream of winning a huge prize but often don’t have the chance.”

Tournaments get under way every two or three hours each day, giving players from all over the world the opportunity to take part. Go to www.pokerstars.com/poker/tournaments/micro-millions to view the full schedule.
