The US friendly online poker room of Americas Cardroom has rescheduled the $1 Million Winning Millions Tournament and it will now take place on Sunday February the 22nd at 3pm ET. After suffering a severe disruption of service attack during the first attempt to run this huge event, and cancelling the tourney a few hours in, they vowed to get it rescheduled, and have indeed kept their word. The original tournament was cancelled as players were being timed out and the decision was made that in order to maintain the high standards that ACR are known for, that stopping and rescheduling was the best course of action.
That’s all in the past, and the new date is set, and players will find a full satellite schedule in the Americas Cardroom lobby, with over 600 satellites available, many of which are freerolls. The winner of Winning Millions will take home a guaranteed $200,000, a life changing amount of cash in what is the largest online poker tournament for US players in over 3.5 years. Players that are thinking about qualifying for this one should take to the tables quickly as there’s also a little something special for the first 500 players that qualify, as those first 500 players to satellite in will also receive a free seat in the Second Chance event which is serving up a tasty $300,000 prize pool.
This is a huge event, and one that we sincerely hope goes as planned this time around, with a $1 Million guaranteed US tournament being a major step forward for the online poker industry as a whole. If you want to get in on the action then you’ll need to get registered at ACR and all new players will receive a welcome bonus of 100% up to $1,000 to get them going, plus entry into the weekly $250 Depositor Freeroll.
