We are just one week away from the start of the long-awaited MILLIONS North America festival. The last STEP Satellites were played this weekend, but if you haven’t had the chance to earn your seat through the STEP system, there is still a full roster of Direct Satellites for you to choose from if you’re trying to get into the Main Event at a reduced cost… or the Montreal Open… or the Playground 1000. And if you would prefer to take a shot online, there are two Final Phases left to be played on partypoker. Take your pick!
$10,300 MILLIONS North America
During the festival, 7 Direct Satellites will be held from Sunday, May 19 to Wednesday, May 22, boasting a total of 70 seats guaranteed. With various start times, 3 different price points, and a choice of 15 or 20-minute levels, you are sure to find one that suits your preferences. They do have one thing in common: all of them guarantee 10 x $10,300 seats to MILLIONS North America. Check your options!
If you wish to try your luck on the virtual felts, consider one of two remaining Final Phases on partypoker, held on Sunday, May 12 and Sunday, May 19. You can buy in directly for $1,050, or earn your participation through one of the daily $109 Phase 1s. $5.50 and $22 Feeders also run daily.
$1,100 Montreal Open
The Montreal Open is Event #2 at MILLIONS North America. However, satellites to the event run from the very first day of the festival. There are 9 such tournaments on the schedule, all of them priced at $150 + $15 and following a turbo format. Guarantees vary from 5 to 15 seats, and add up to 85 seats.
What’s even more exciting is that the Montreal Open itself can send you the Main Event if you run deep, as the top 15 positions will award a $10,300 entry for the big dance, on top of a very handsome payout for your nice performance!
$1,100 Playground 1000
Event #7 of MILLIONS North America, the Playground 1000, hails from Friday, May 24 to Sunday, May 26, the very last day of the festival. There are 2 satellite tournaments for this event, scheduled for Wednesday, May 22 and Thursday, May 23. The buy-in for both is $150 + $15, and both follow a Turbo Re-entry format.
Whether you’re a big league player trying to get into your target events for a fraction of the cost, or a casual player trying to take a shot at a bigger prize pool, the abundance and variety of satellites will serve you well. Good luck on your path to MILLIONS!
