The Sunday Million is the world’s biggest weekly poker tournament with a $1 million guaranteed prizepool and first place prize regularly in excess of $100,000. PokerStars has hosted more than 600 Sunday Million tournaments over the years, which have collectively awarded more than $750 million.

“We’re thrilled to be a part of this poker milestone, but the credit goes to all of the poker lovers out there who have made the Sunday Million happen nearly every week for the past 13 years, so we hope to see them at the tables on April 14,”said Severin Rasset, Director of Poker Innovation and Operations at The Stars Group.
