Each January, the Crown Casino in Melbourne, Australia hosts the largest and most prestigious gaming event in the Southern Hemisphere—the Aussie Millions Poker Championship. And although the 2011 Aussie Millions is still nearly five months away, there’s no time like the present to start making plans. Register now at 888/Pacific Poker for the Aussie Millions satellite qualifier series and your opportunity to win an all-inclusive Aussie Millions Package worth $17,500!
The $17,500 package to the 2011 Aussie Millions includes a Main Event buy-in ($10,000 + $600), travel expenses to Melbourne, 10 night’ accommodation at the new Crown Metropol Hotel, spending money, plenty of swag, and an invitation to 888/Pacific Poker’s exclusive VIP party.
Qualifying for a package is easy at 888/Pacific Poker. Climb the ladder in step qualifier tournaments running daily every 2 hours. Step 1 players can choose from either $1 + 0.10 R&A (re-buy/add-on) where one player for every $25 in the prize pool advances to Step 2, or $5 + 0.50 tournaments where one in five players advance to the next level.
The Aussie Millions Step 2 Qualifier has a buy-in of $23 + $2 and will be held on Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday at 19:55 and on Sunday at 12:05. One in five players will advance to the third rung on the ladder toward the final.
The $105 + $10 Step 3 Qualifier will be held on Tuesday and Friday at 19:55 and on Sunday at 13:35. One in five advance to the final Aussie Millions Qualifier tournaments that will take place every two weeks on Sundays at 19:05 beginning August 22. One $17,500 Aussie Millions Package is guaranteed.
Of course, if you prefer not to take the Step route, you can buy-in to a final Aussie Millions Qualifier for $500 + $25. And if you’re not sure you want to take your chances in the qualifier tournament, you can cash in your reward points for an Aussie Millions Package in the new 888/Pacific Poker store.
The 2011 Aussie Millions series is set to be the biggest and most exciting to date, attracting some of the world’s best poker players from around the globe. A total of 20 events will take place over 18 days between January 13 and 30, with the first flight of the Main Event on Sunday, January 23.
Winning the Main Event at the Aussie Millions would mean instant stardom and probably a seven-figure payday. Australian poker player Tyron Krost won Crown Casino’s 2010 Aussie Millions Poker Championship Main Event and took home AUD$2 million, joining 2009 winner Stewart Scott as the recipient of one of the largest prizes ever awarded in a live poker tournament in the Southern Hemisphere.
