Is a $1 million guaranteed prize pool with tons extra prizes not enough? Well there is more to celebrate this month on PokerStars!

Sit-and-go players are also being awarded tons of money just by playing their favourite games in the $500K Milestone Golden Sit & Go’s. That's right, $500,000 will be handed out to lucky PokerStars players.

This promotion is easy to take part in. All you need to do is play any of the sit-and-go's you normally play and, at the start of each one, you might get lucky if the tournament is selected as a Golden sit-and-go. If you are lucky enough to be selected at random, you can win the following prizes.
