PokerStars Christmas Festival to award more than $5 million


Yes, it’s not even December yet. Yes, it’s very possible you haven’t even considered the holidays. And if you are in any way sane, you are avoiding any public address systems playing holiday music.
But that doesn’t mean you can’t start making some money with this year’s PokerStars Christmas Festival.


Beginning today, you can start your campaign to win your part of $5 million in prizes that PokerStars will award over the next six weeks, including…just maybe…a spot in the final $1 million freeroll of the year.

Want to see what’s on offer? Keep reading below.

Here’s what’s coming up between now and the end of the year.

December 1 is your chance to claim part of a $1,000,000 prize pool. To get in, you will just need to complete a daily challenge between November 21-29. That will earn you seat in that day’s All-in Shootout qualifier to win a place in the $1 Million Freeroll. What’s more, there will also be an extra chance for players to take part in the Last Chance Skill Qualifier tournament which will take place on the day of the $1 Million Freeroll.

For the first 25 days of Decemer, the PokerStars’ Christmas Calendar will offer $2 million in prizes. Every day, you will be able to unlock a new promotion or activity to complete in the Challenges window of the PokerStars client. There will be something for everyone to enjoy, including Spin & Go challenges, deposit bonuses, freerolls, and giveaways that offer lots of chances to win a share of the $2 million in rewards and bonuses.

Wait…what?! That’s right. Hidden behind one of the Christmas Calendar doors will be an epic MicroMillions Marathon day with 21 low buy-in events. The highlight of the day will be the MicroMillions Marathon Main Event with a buy-in of $22 and $1 million guaranteed. Bet you didn’t see that one coming.

To cap it all off, on December 26th, the tournament that is the usual Sunday Million will become a special $2 million guaranteed Monday Million! First place is guaranteed to be $200,000. That event kicks off at 14:30 ET. You’ll be able to satellite in all month long.
