With online poker soaring globally, and the online poker population doubling in a single month, PokerStars continues to announce new tournaments. The MicroMillions and SCOOP will offer players to sit down and play in some significant events globally. PokerStars also just reported a 27% growth year-over-year in the first quarter, despite the ongoing lockdown.

MicroMillions Poker: April 19 – April 26

Thanks to its strong results in Q1, 2020, the company is forging ahead with new events to try. On April 19, PokerStars will host the MicroMillions event which will offer players a crack at $2.6 million in total prize pools, accessible to anyone who has registered.

The tournament focuses on a grassroots approach, meaning you won’t have to pay an arm or a leg to get inside, with the buy-ins being quite accessible. There won’t be any high rollers looking around for $20,000 buy-ins, with most buy-ins, in fact, starting at as little as $3.30 for the NLHE 8-MAX $20K GTD event.

The event will feature 100 separate tournaments in which players can participate for various awards, from $20K GTD to $250K GTD. Most tournaments will feature prize pools as $50K GTD and $75K GTD establishing a great baseline for anyone who wants to join.

The “steepest” buy-in seems to be $5.50 for most $75K GTD events, but this is not again carved in stone. The NLHE Sunday Storm Special Main Event, which will be held on April 26 – the last day of the event, will ask for a $11 buy-in and offer back $1M GTD.

Second Big PokerStars Tournament This Month: SCOOP 2020: April 30 – May 19

Meanwhile, PokerStars SCOOP is arriving in full strength with $85 million in guaranteed prize pools across 240 tournaments. Yes, you read this correctly, there will be $85 million for grabs during the tournament, which is expected to draw massive interest among players.

The platform has already featured various satellite events that you can use to qualify for the $10,3000 Main Event offering $5M GTD prize pools. Players can further get a taste of the action by visiting the full schedule and planning ahead in which tournament they want to participate specifically.

With 45,000 concurrent peak online poker players registered across legal sites in the world at the end of March, April should occasion a much more significant interest and drive traffic for a second quarter, making 2020 one of the best years online poker has seen to date.
