It may only be mid-November, but that hasn’t stopped PokerStars from getting into the Christmas spirit by rolling out a promotion that will stuff the stockings of loyal players starting now and continuing past Christmas.

The Christmas Festival promo at PokerStars began on November 16 and will run through December 27 with over $10 million in cash to be awarded, including a massive $5 million guaranteed Sunday Million. But prior to that huge event, PokerStars has introduced a Daily Double Jackpot Tournament Series and a Christmas Calendar, the latter of which will likely make online poker players feel like a kid on Christmas morning.

Daily Double Jackpot Tournament Series

The top poker site worldwide begins its season of giving with a Daily Double Jackpot Tournament Series that takes place from Nov. 16-29. PokerStars likes to make millionaires and is prepared to make more by awarding $1 million to any player who wins two tournaments of the same buy-in in one day.

The events in the series are offered at three stake levels – $1.10, $11 and $55 – and both tournaments for each level start at the same time daily. All told there are 84 Daily Double Jackpot tourneys with guaranteed prize pools totaling over $4.5 million.

On top of that, players at a table chosen at random each day from Monday-Saturday will win two $55 tournament tickets. On Sunday, the random table winners will receive a free $215 ticket to the $5 million guaranteed Sunday Million on Dec. 27.

Christmas Calendar

Every day from Dec. 1-25, PokerStars has an exciting offer available for all players in its Christmas Calendar. Just click on your ‘Challenges’ window to locate the calendar and find your offer by opening a new door every 24 hours through Christmas Day.

Behind each Christmas Calendar Door are offers pertaining to previous popular PokerStars promos such as Milestone Hands, PCA Giveaways, Golden Sit & Go’s, Freerolls, Mega Bonuses, Christmas Giveaways and Challenges. How exciting to find a new offer available each day in December leading up to Christmas!

Sunday Million Becomes Sunday $5 Million

The Christmas season doesn’t end on Christmas Day, and neither does the Christmas Festival at PokerStars. On Sunday, Dec. 27, the popular Sunday Million will be played with a guaranteed prize pool of $5 million, but at the same $215 entry fee!

If that $215 buy-in is a bit over your budget, how about obtaining your seat to the mammoth event for only $1? You can do so via a bunch of special satellites running now at PokerStars that start at just $1. Find those satellites at ‘Online Events’ in the poker client.

Deposit Bonus

If you’ve yet to make that first deposit and play at PokerStars, not only are you missing the action at the industry’s most popular poker room, but you’ll also miss out on the Christmas Festival promotion and a shot at more than $10 million in prizes!

A Welcome Bonus of 100% up to $600 is available to first-time depositors. That’s a gift in and of itself, let alone the other prizes that await in the Daily Double Jackpot Tournament Series, Christmas Calendar, and $5 million Sunday Million!
