Big money in mark ninth anniversary of Sunday Million Poker.

By RP, February 17, 2015

Online poker provider Pokerstars is pushing the boat out to mark the ninth anniversary of its popular Sunday Millions weekly poker tournament series, putting up $9 million in prize money.

The anniversary event takes place on March 8 with the usual buy-in of $215, but a vastly augmented prize pool, and satellites have already commenced.

The landmark event is expected to draw large numbers of online poker fans to the website; back in 2011 when the fifth anniversary was celebrated, 59,128 players entered, generating a prize pool of almost $12 million, with the winner taking home $670,000…and a Lamborghini Gallardo.
