Don´t Miss the 888Poker $1 Million XL Main Event

Posted on by Roy Smith

Super XL Series 2016 at 888 PokerThis coming Sunday – January 31st – 888 Poker will be hosting the $1 million guaranteed Main Event of its current record-breaking Super XL Series.

It has been a massive record-breaking week at 888 Poker. Last Sunday, the opening event of the 2016 Super XL Series saw 1,675 entries in the $160.00 buy-in “multi chance” tournament smash the $250,000 guarantee and set a new 888 Poker record for the number of entries in an online poker tournament with a buy-in of $100.00 or more.

Simultaneously, Event #2 – the $12.00 “mini multi chance” tournament – broke 888 Poker´s record for the number of entries in a tournament with a buy-in of $10.00 or more when 4,821 players entered the event. With 2,081 rebuys, the $50,000 guarantee was beaten by more than 50%, and it has been the same story all through the week as hordes of players flock to 888 Poker.

Five Main Events this Coming Sunday

This coming Sunday looks set to be another guarantee-smashing day. Five “Main Events” are scheduled throughout the evening – the daddy of them all being the $1 million guaranteed Event #34 at 7:00pm (GMT). A huge field is expected – despite the $1,050 buy-in – due to a host of mega-satellites being played throughout the weekend and on Sunday afternoon.

Here is Sunday´s line-up in its entirety (all times GMT):

  • 4:05pm Mega Satellite to the Main Event – $215.00 buy-in, fifty seats guaranteed.
  • 7:00pm Super XL #34 Main Event – $1,050 buy-in, $1,000,000 guaranteed
  • 7:00pm Super XL #35 Mini Main Event – $160.00 buy-in, $150,000 guaranteed
  • 7:30pm Super XL #36 Micro Main Event – $5.00 buy-in, $15,000 guaranteed
  • 9:00pm Super XL #37 Turbo Main Event – $109.00 buy-in, $20,000 guaranteed
  • 10:00pm Super XL #38 Super Turbo Main Event – $75.00 buy-in, $10,000 guaranteed

Naturally there is plenty of action happening at 888 Poker in the run-up to “Main Event Sunday”. The highlight of tonight´s events is a $50,000 guaranteed “Quarterback” event, while tomorrow night´s action includes three knockout tournaments and three of Saturday´s six events are targeted at fans of 6-Max action.

Live the Game at 888 Poker

In addition to giving players the opportunity to live the dream of winning a $1 million guarantee tournament, 888 Poker is also inviting players to “Live the Game” in its fantastic new $1,000,000 promotion.

All players have to do to take part in the promotion is to make a deposit of $10.00 or more using one of the 888 Poker bonus codes listed below. Depending on the code used, players will receive one or more entries into “Live the Game” tournaments:

  • Using the 888 Poker bonus code “CALL10”, players will receive five entries into the twice-daily $2,000 “Smooth Call” tournaments.
  • When players make a deposit using the bonus code “RAISE10”, they will receive two tickets to the daily $5,000 “Raise the Stakes” tournaments.
  • With the 888 Poker bonus code “ALLIN10”, players are awarded a seat in a $10,000 “Action Hero” tournament. These take place on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays.

Once players have taken part in any of the free-to-enter tournaments, they will be sent an email from 888 Poker offering them a choice of missions. The missions increase in difficulty depending on the reward the player is attempting to achieve – either an entry into a “Smooth Call” tournament, a “Raise the Stakes” tournament, or an “Action Hero” tournament.

Players can also win seats into the three “Live the Game” tournaments via the “Spin it Your Way” games that first appear when players log into their 888 Poker accounts. Simply choose a wheel to spin and hopefully spin your way to a valuable tournament entry. The “Live the Game” promotion runs until March 15.
