Sunday Surprise: hunting for the Red Diamond… In addition to €50,000 guaranteed!
Sunday, 15th September at 20:30 CET - €10 buy-in
We’ve all visited the VIP status page so many times that we could recite it off by heart. Chrome, Aluminium, Bronze, Silver, Diamond… None of the statuses are new to you, and on certain good months you manage to climb up a few ranks. No need to lie though: there’s a status that is coveted by all, and that most dream of reaching. The highest of them all, the hardest to reach: the Red Diamond. You heard the rumours: every year, only a dozen players manage to accumulate the 2.5 million Miles required for the boss level of the VIP statuses. You don’t know who the players are, but one thing is sure – you’re not one of them.
Are you sure? Maybe you could be! That’s right: we left something really special at the end of the Sunday Surprise road this week, in addition to the €50,000 guaranteed prizepool; a queue-jump pass to the very exclusive Red Diamond club. You read it right: the tournament winner will be skipping all the steps to instantly be crowned king of the VIPs, no matter the game volume, no matter the Miles acquired. We will be giving them all the advantages reserved for this elite group: a x6 Miles multiplier, two bonuses to unlock every month, a monthly freeroll with a €20,000 prizepool and a free ticket for all the Main Events of our Live festivals. There are two types of people in this world: the Red Diamonds, and those who haven’t had a successful life. Don’t wait: join the club.
The tournament winner will be credited with a Red Diamond VIP status for one year from 16/09/2019 to 30/09/2020 included.
They will benefit from all of the advantages that go with the VIP status such as:
Accumulation of Miles in poker and sports betting multiplied by six for one year
Both monthly Red Diamond VIP bonuses worth €500 to be unlocked
Ticket to all Super Diamond Freeroll with €20,000 in prizepool money
Registration to the Live Winamax tournaments (Main Events)
The right to brag to all your mates

Like a Sultan in Oman
Statistically, there is very little chance that VAI SAFADAO, this week’s Sunday Surprise winner, has already visited the beautiful country of Oman, a small nation with 5 million inhabitants just between Saudi Arabia and the Indian Ocean. Just as well: the country’s wonderful views, rich in colours and natural scenery, will now lead to a wonderful adventure for this week’s winner. All on Winamax!
Fishing for bounties
This winner needs to find a new nickname! After rising to the top from a massive pool of over 12,000 players, fighting hard for three hours in the morning, and collecting €3,173 in bounties before winning first place and €6,176 in the Sunday Surprise, how can IHateSundays still think ill of this day of the week? Either way, it was their biggest win on our tables and included a nice gift: tickets to the next 52 editions of our surprise tournament and a €50 cash bonus for each elimination at their hands. TGI Sundays.
KingFusion's victory wasn't instant, far from it: they needed 6 hours of tight focus to shutter a large landscape of more than 8,000 participants. But there was nothing negative with how it all developed, quite the opposite: with €10,859 prize money and a cheque they can frame and hang on the wall, our winner captured their subject without needing to process their achievement.

Between smoking his opponents in the Sunday Surprise and smoking cigars in Havana, Cuba, Obelix.94 chose to... do both! This shark took down the tournament on Sunday evening, pocketing €10,403 in the process. Not only did our winner walk away with some hefty change in his pocket, but he will also be heading to Cuba for a week of sun, classic cars and mojitos!
The hidden splendours of Honduras
Last Sunday, the €50,000 prizepool of our favourite Sunday tournament was once again pulverized, allowing the winner, Sub2004.nc, to walk away with the hefty sum of €11,076. But that’s not all! As this is the Sunday Surprise, our winner also managed to bag himself a special prize to go with his rather large cheque; a one week trip to Honduras!
A Guadeloupian treehouse
AnttiTiainen is our grand winner this week, and can look forward to admiring the wild fauna of Guadeloupe! Having taken down the tournament after battling through 6,500 opponents, he will now be looking forward to a week's holiday in the French West Indies, perched in a glorious treehouse with a cheque for €9,949. He and a chosen friend or relative will be able to take advantage of the diverse range of activities which we have prepared for him including flying bikes, a hike around "La Grande Soufrière" and some canyoning, just to round things off!
Cruise on the Senegal River
ChangeSpeed was this week's grand winner of the Sunday Surprise, and needed no re-entries to lift the trophy above his head at 3 o'clock in the morning. His prizes are as follows: €10,699 sent straight to his Winamax account, and, just a little later, an email from our marketing team inviting him and the person of his choice to an eight-day cruise on the Senegal River aboard the mythical Bou El Mogdad, an old Portuguese freighter reconverted into a cruise ship. Don't forget to send a card!
The SISMIX, but better
Thanks to an incredible 15,761 buy-ins, this week’s Sunday Surprise prizepool exceeded €140,000. This meant that KingMajestix, this week’s lucky winner, was able to pocket a hefty €13,500, and can look forward to a cheap (and hopefully profitable!) SISMIX. From 8th to 14th of May, our winner will be having a great time in Marrakech, with some 6-max poker to freeroll and, of course, all the parties too! Just to put the cherry on the cake, our winner and a friend of his choosing will be able to stay in the grand Es Saadi hotel!
The Series in the palm of your hand

The lucky winner goes by the username kill-me. This shark lifted the trophy after ten hours of arduous battle (against a total of 16,226 buy-ins – record broken!). For the next 140 events in the Series, he can kick, back, relax and play his A-game.

Home run in Philadelphia...
Having knocked all of his opponents out the park, ---AAA--- will now be jetting off to the other side of the Atlantic Ocean for a week filled with culture and sports in Philadelphia. The €10,076 he took for his first place finish should give him plenty of time to learn the rules of baseball before seeing a Major League match at the Citizen Bank Park in Phillie. Accroche-toi fell in second place (€6,834) and Alapapaye was rewarded €5,099 for his bronze medal.
Scottish distillery tour for 4...

Lapland in Finland…
It was an early Christmas for x_freeman42! In addition to the €11,065 that he managed to stash away into his stocking - after a deal with DonEmilio (2nd, €9,814) -, the grand winner of our surprise tournament will be flying off to the country of big white beards, reindeers with odd-coloured noses and plenty of "ho-ho-ho"s: Lapland! With a ride in a sleigh pulled by reindeer and a snowmobile safari, our winner will be able to make his childhood dreams come true for a whole week.
Your MTT winnings doubled...
We had an incredible turnout for our most surprising tournament of the week: thanks to its knockout format and mouth-watering prizepool guarantee which was double its usual size, the buy-ins were coming in thick and fast.

Our grand winner this week was fredo1962 who had already bagged a title in the Summer Shots festival in April 2016, and will be able to go and work on his tan with the €11,658 he managed to negociate heads-up with Waul Patson (€9,297). -GABAO-STAR- (€6,289) and JenyetKylian (€4,772) completed our illustrious podium.

The first Surprise Event of the Winamax Circus drew in the crowds: nearly 12,814 entrants have squeezed into the Big Top in hopes of picking up the incredible gift promised to the winner. In the end, it was gouss2001 who won the award, and will fly off to Las Vegas for a week, with the companion of his choice, to experience two performances of the prestigious Cirque du Soleil. He will also be able to try his luck at the Little One for One Drop at $1,111 in the next WSOP. And this pretty icing is offered as a bonus in his cake of €18,004 in winnings. Wonderful!
Cirque du Soleil in Las Vegas…
There was consensus among the numerous tournaments on this Sunday for one event with more than 16,500 registrations recorded (including re-entries) for nearly €150,000 in prize money. This, inevitably of course, is the Surprise Event. The one that will likely remain the biggest Winamax Circus tournament after the Main Event fell into the hands of Only1CardPlz. Did he really need only one card to win the €11,081 jackpot, with a €3,040 bonus? In any case, bravo to him: now he’s invited to the 52 next editions of our surprise tournament, where he will win €50 in cash for each elimination achieved. Note also the ninth place of a certain Kitbul, in the Multiplex Poker studio direct. The Genius returned five times to reach the semi-finals of this 6-Max tournament, played exceptionally, leaving with a total of €1,198.
The Great Canadian Cold
With over 7,500 registrations, the prospect of a trip to the great Canadian north attracted great interest in the Sunday Surprise. Rather than battle it out, the five finalists decided to quit on good terms and agreed a deal.

He also pocketed €5,981. -BLACKFEAR- took home €5,007 in second place, while Winamax regular BV77 excelled by taking home the biggest winnings of the night: €8,500. cedr30 ended with €6,014 and playboy1983 can tan his six-pack all winter long with €7,413 wisely negotiated.
Budapest with friends

And he can drink to his win with three of his best friends who will accompany him for a wild week in Budapest. Thermal baths, Beer Bike tours and wild parties are included in the itinerary, as you would expect from a city known more for its booze than its tea ceremonies.
Become a kitesurfing master
Redwawe rode the winner's wave taking home €11,676 in first place, as well as this week's surprise prize: a week's kite-surfing in Tarifa in the south of Spain. But he came up against strong winds: our champion had to see off heads-up tournament champion, ItsHAPPening. The runner-up is a common sight at the tables, already winning a Main Event in August with €19,000, a Winamax Series Heads-Up Championship in September with €10,000 euros and others including Top 50, Monster Stack, After Work, etc. etc. etc.! He added another €7,962 to his 2017 total with this second-place finish. A1hoarder completed the podium with €5,978, and Pchiii came in fourth (€4,538).

Hanoi and Halong Bay…
It took almost seven hours of play to know the name of the lucky winner who will be able to go for a paddle in Halong Bay. Rotection took down this week's Sunday Surprise and pockets 10,046 euros after making a heads-up deal with B3loB0ss (€9,200). This was no easy win as the latter reached a multitude of final tables in the Winamax Series and won Event 82 in April of 2015. emilie.29 scores a neat third place finish for 5,748 euros, leaving MichL Omaha with the chocolate medal (€4,362) and Carnalito21 in fifth place (5th, €2,976).

A fantastic reward for this reg of the big field MTTs, having placed third in Event 60 of the Winamax Series in January 2016 for €11,500 and won the Tie Break last February for €3,770. A much-deserved victory after a heated battle against Manu0601 heads-up (2nd, €6,713), whereas ducdeboulbi bowed out in third place and left €5,001 richer thanks to his hard work.

€100 in free bets for every match day!
Having already had a very strong start to 2017, LLinusLLord marks his greatest performance to date that we know of by taking down the Sunday Surprise for €10,086. This regular (with multiple final tables in the Xtase and winner of the Rush Hour and the €50 Monster Stack) will be making the bookmakers tremble in fear this year as he has won himself €100 in free bets to be placed on Ligue 1 Conforama matches for every match day in 2017/2018. This victory came after some negotiation for a deal with one of our regular sharks, Aurimaso, who left €8,089 richer. This player had already appeared on our radars nine months ago by winning the Fièvre for over €9,000 and even won the Xtase just one week ago for €5,500.

This player will surely be putting his Pokemon to one side in order to go and support his team for a few months. Hass34090 misses out on the trophy in second for €7,303, just ahead of alilou1900 who leaves with €5,471. H.MAN takes the chocolate medal worth €4,154 and bennylor16 finishes in fifth place for €2,837.
Explore the depths of the Gulf of Oman
A fantastic turnout for our aquatic Sunday Surprise. TerraFormars wins €10,379 and can buy himself a neat pair of flippers. He'll be needing them for his trip to the Gulf of Oman and his diving course in crystal-clear waters. Let's hope that the player from rainy Normandy won't be in shock at the incredibly beautiful weather of Oman. LilSto finishes in second and pockets €7,040, which will easily cover the re-entry he paid. Finally, gab2006 finishes in third for the second time, after coming in third in the Sunday Surprise three years before. He leaves €5,254 richer.
Roller coaster rides in Barcelona
Nothing can stop ZiZette95 in 2017! This week's champion has already won the Fièvre and the After Work and, just two months ago, placed runner-up in the After Work. Our key low-stakes tournament gave out €9,100 to our lucky winner after a deal with PeroVijola19 (€7,775).

Our winner will fly to New York with the accompanying person of his choice for a week, in order to see the men's semi-finals and finals of the US Open. Aurismas95 lifts themselves up to the podium, scoring €5,573 for their third place, with cabecudo777 taking the chocolate medal and €4,232.
A €100,000 polka-dot jersey
A hefty first prize of over €10,000 and the possibility to win much more (up to €100,000!) if the performance is up to scratch on the uphill climb of the Alpe d'Huez: this Sunday Surprise dedicated to the Tour de France brought in all our biggest cycling fans! Our grand winner was in the dark9, who didn't need a scrap of light to beat his 7,054 opponents and pocket €10,631 for his victory. We wish him all the best with his training and hope he is both mentally and physically prepared for his attempt at the 13.8 kilometre climb of this epic step in the "Grande Boucle"! 3000litu wasn't far from getting the yellow jersey himself, and will be going home with €7,247 for his second place, just ahead of P.Soetens in third for €5,405. Also a nice performance by GTORSA (5th, €2,802).

Pilgrimage to the temples of Angkor
Judging by his username, MezKal4Life might have preferred a journey to Mexico, but his trip to see the incredible temples of Angkor might persuade him otherwise, and his €9,111 pay day won't hurt too much either. We also had .Gyneco taking home €6,167 for his consultation and a bronze medal for Pucci305 who pocketed €4,588. Finally, we had ENIIGMATIK taking the chocolate medal, along with €3,477.

Between the exploration of the splendours of Florence, capital of the Renaissance, and of the region’s architectural jewels (Sienna, San Gimignano, Radda in Chianti etc.), our winner (and a guest of his choice) will be able to make a couple of stops along the way to taste some great local wine, meals prepared by local caterers and even to participate in cooking classes, just to bring back some local know-how.
A suit you won’t need to return…
There were many of you battling it out to win the coveted first prize of a tailored suit this Sunday. Unfortunately, we could have only one winner, with Valentin “Negan_Equity” Messina lifting the trophy. Valentin was also a runner-up in the 2015 EPT in Malta (where he has been living for the last few years) and is now beginning a new adventure on Twitch. He was not streaming when he emerged victorious, but we are hoping for a cat walk when he has received his suit on his next broadcast. With a prizepool of nearly €60,000, Negan_Equity ‘s first place was rewarded with the hefty sum of €10,047. Sabrinaldo1 came in second place, pocketing €6,814. Win-a-max-le did well to leave his Expresso tournaments to one side for the evening, as his third place rewarded him with €5,084.
It must have been the terrible weather in early May making everyone dream of sunnier climes: we had a huge turnout for the Mexican Sunday Surprise with a massive guarantee and more than 7,000 players battling it out for a dream week in the Yucatan. The lucky winner was Ad Finem and he can lie down at the pool edge of the 5-star Dreams Tulum Resort & Spa deciding what to spend his €10,771 winnings on, in between visits to the famous Mayan pyramids. It was a lucrative Sunday for the player as earlier on he had finished fourth in the Rally winning €600. The runner-up, Gagiron, can't complain either, having won €7,338 and the Uppercut the day before! The final table also featured kask_urva (3rd, €5,498), coustoulou15 (4th, €4,175) and TAK0NAK0 (5th, €2,851), who also finished sixth in the Sunday Surprise on 5 March. For those who missed out, you can try your luck next Sunday at 20:30.
Horseback trekking in Morocco
The big winner of this incredible double-prize was DRK3134 who jets off for a week of hiking in Morocco and also takes home €9,148. He beat lol_Omar, who has proudly worn the Winamax Series logo since January and is now €8,340 better off. 4BETFORLIFE completed the podium (3rd, €5,183), a year to the day after he won the 5 Majeur. We should also mention the good result for labarte09 (4th, €3,922) who also came in 8th in the €10 Monster Stack.
A very profitable catch
On the eve of the French election, cloupy1 won the lion's share of the spoils in our surprise tournament, winning €8,611 after a deal struck with d21a (2nd, €7,282). A tidy sum for the winner and his fifth year playing on Winamax promises to be bright.
Red Diamond for a year
Two-time winner of the After Work in 2014 and 2016, and two-time finalist of La Fièvre, TFC09 had his biggest win on Winamax on Sunday evening (€11,004) to go with a trip for two to Las Vegas that promises to be unforgettable, and perhaps even profitable: we are giving him the VIP treatment in Vice City during the WSOP (accommodation at the Bellagio, limousine transfers, evening with the Pro Team...), as well as a ticket for two of the biggest tournaments of the 2017 edition of the World Championships.
Red Diamond for a year
There was a huge field for this second Surprise Event which promised its winner a whole year of VIP Red Diamond status. Only a lucky few (just a few dozen on Winamax) can claim to have such a status and now King-Killer joins their ranks. He also won faster accumulation of miles, invitations to monthly €20,000 freerolls and guaranteed seats for our next three live tournaments, not to mention €12,556 already won.
The best Series… for free!
Make sure you remember his username because there's a fair chance that you'll be at the same table as him more than once during the Series. Picking up a whopping €21,497 after a deal with N4G4DRIS4NE (2nd with €17,756), Baltrance now has access to all the tournaments at the festival, with the tab covered. This is a rare opportunity narrowly missed out on by Duck U, the Wameur that finished fifth with €6,468.
Ejoy the SISMIX as a VIP
Even if all he won was the cash prize for finishing first (€10,831, more than a thousand times his initial buy-in), there's no doubt that wapipi would have been ecstatic. However, as happens every Sunday with the internet's most surprising tournament, this five-figure sum was just part of the prize: as an additional prize, Winamax has laid down the red carpet to welcome him to the next edition of SISMIX, organised from 13 to 21 May, with royal VIP treatment including air transport, transfers between the airport and accommodation for two people at the Es Saadi Palace (undoubtedly one of the most beautiful hotels in Marrakesh), including breakfast and access to its exclusive spa, and a guaranteed "banging" night out in the VIP section of the hotel complex's Theatro night club, and of course paid entry to the festival's Main Event and Highroller tournaments.
A bar of pure gold
Long live King Midas! On top of the tidy sum of €10,437 – agreed after a side deal with grincheu68 (2nd, €7,006) and Stoic69 (€8,572) – vezec left our surprise tournament with a 250-gram bar of real gold. This little nugget would fetch about €9,500 in the current raw materials market. Did someone say jackpot?
A Balla cruise in Greece

A very profitable catch

All that's left is for him to unlock the next 52 Sundays.

We suggest they go out covered up.
The most beautiful diamond…
This was the unmissable and essential tournament of the Sunday session: a surprise tournament on steroids with a minimum €100,000 guaranteed and the prestigious Red Diamond VIP status for the winner. The guarantee was easily exceeded thanks to a huge number of entries, and the Winamax grand prize was eventually claimed by BraToViC. As well as €12,597 to the good, our lucky winner will also enjoy a variety of extra perks (cash bonus, faster miles accumulation, invitation to our live tournaments, etc.) for a whole year.

An avalanche of Xmas gifts
