  • PokerNews CanadaPokerNews Canada

PokerStars, the world's largest real-money online poker room, just announced its Christmas Festival, where at least $10 million will be awarded to its players.

The highlight of the festival is the $5 Million Guaranteed Sunday Million running on Dec. 27 at 14:30 ET, where the winner is guaranteed to walk away with at least $500,000. Despite the guarantee being five times the normal size of the $1 million on tap during the usual Sunday Million it is replacing, the buy-in remains the same at $215. Players looking to get in a bit cheaper can play in one of the many satellites already running on the site.

The Christmas Festival also features the 84-event Daily Double Jackpot poker festival from Nov. 16-27 with $4.5 million in guaranteed prize pools. The Daily Double tournaments mirror a concept used by Full Tilt for many years. During the poker festival, if a player wins two of the same tournaments in the same day of the same buy-in, then they will be rewarded a huge $1 million bonus prize.

Three sets of tournaments — or six tournaments in total — will be run each day based on the schedule listed below.

Additionally, PokerStars will be awarding one random table of nine players tickets to the $250,000 guaranteed tournament valued at $55 in every tournament that runs Mondays through Saturdays. On Sunday, players will be rewarded even more with a ticket to the $5 Million Guaranteed Sunday Million valued at $215.

Last, but not least, the Christmas Festival also features a special Christmas Calendar from Dec. 1-25 with many popular promotions on tap each day including Golden Sit & Gos, Milestone Hands, Freerolls, PCA Giveaways, Challenges, Christmas Giveaways, and Mega Bonuses. Players can find out what is on tap each day by visiting the "Challenges" window to see what is in store and how they can get their hands on a share of the at least $2 million promised to be given away.
