While the entire month of February is loaded with promotions in honor of the 100 millionth player to register at a PokerStars site, players also have March to look forward to as PokerStars has announced a special $10 million guaranteed Sunday Million to commemorate the 10th anniversary of online poker’s biggest weekly tournament.
Mark your calendars for Sunday, March 20 to take a shot at a piece of that guaranteed $10,000,000 prize pool. The winner of the Sunday Million 10th Anniversary event will walk away with the 1st place prize of $1,000,000 guaranteed.
However, the smart money is on the prize pool to be well over $10 million and the champ to receive in excess of $1 million. Players will be permitted to enter as many as three times, if need be. The Sunday Million typically allows players to fire only one bullet, but the 10th Anniversary Sunday Million affords players an opportunity to pack additional ammunition.

The buy-in remains the same at $215. The late registration period is set at three hours, allowing players plenty of time to re-enter if that initial attempt at building a chip stack is somehow thwarted by the play of opponents.
Win a Seat for Free
Players hoping to enter this massive event on the cheap have plenty of opportunities to do so. Hyper-Turbo Freerolls are scheduled for every Saturday beginning on February 13 and running through March 19. A total of 1,200 free seats will be awarded to freeroll players over the next six weeks at 200 per week.
Seats to the freerolls are won by making a deposit of at least $20 in each of the six weeks. In other words, players can take up to six shots at winning a seat to the 10th Anniversary Sunday Million for just a nominal deposit. Use the deposit code “MILLIONFREE1” this week, “MILLIONFREE2” next week, and so on.
Other Ways to Enter
Players can also win a seat for just 1,000 StarsCoin in VIP Bash satellites held on four consecutive Saturdays beginning on February 27. Fifty seats are guaranteed in the first three VIP Bash satellites and 100 seats in the fourth on March 19.
On March 20, an $11 buy-in Deadline Satellite at 13:45 ET has reserved 1,000 seats to the 10th Anniversary Sunday Million, while a $33 Deadline Satellite starting 20 minutes later guarantees 333 seats to the special event. Satellites for as low as $1 are running now and will be up until March 20.
A Must Event to Play
“The Sunday Million Anniversary tournament is one of the biggest events on the poker calendar,” said Team PokerStars Pro Jaime Staples. “And when you throw in a $10 million guaranteed prize pool and more than a thousand free seats as well, it’s a tournament that every poker player should aspire to play.”
Staples will be streaming the action live on Twitch. Expect a bunch of other PokerStars Pros to also take a seat at the 10th Anniversary Sunday Million.
