Winamax Series – €13,000,000 in guarantees!
No time to waste: 2019 is kicking off in style with our big and beautiful tournament festival. From 6th to 17th of JANUARY, the Winamax Series will be offering 165 events with buy-ins ranging from €5 to €1,000, 13 million euros in guarantees, tons of different formats and a brand new tournament promising a €2,000,000 guarantee, the 2 MILLION EVENT!
Yes, you read that right – the €125 MILLION EVENT as you know it will be getting a makeover for the New Year, doubling its guarantee and becoming the biggest tournament we have ever offered on our tables! For this momentous occasion, the tournament will be played according to the Colossus format, in 6-max KO.
Sunday, 16th of December at 20 :15 CET – Special tournament: Road to 2 Million
€50,000 guaranteed, including 200 tickets to the 2 Million Event!
You can also count on our classics for the duration of the festival, with three of our favourite tournaments making yet another appearance and offering a total of 1.1 million euros in guarantees: the High Five (€5), the Little KO (€15) and the Colossus (€30).
Our other exciting new additions to the schedule:
- The SHOW ONE tournaments: when a hand does not go to showdown, one of the winner’s cards will be revealed to the table! This should spice things up on the felt.
- The MONSTER STACK is changing its structure. You will be begin the tournament with a 100,000 starting stack, and will be sitting with 100BB for quite a while. Why, you ask? Well, simply because the blinds will not be increasing for the first 5 levels!
Expresso Qualifier 2 MILLION EVENT KO
From 12th to 16th of January, you can win your €125 ticket to the 2 MILLION EVENT KO through our €4 Expresso Qualifier!
1/ Pocket prizes in the Kill the WIP (Winamax Important Person) tournaments by knocking out WIPs: €10 for knocking out a Pro, People or Champion, €25 for knocking one of these out in the top 100 places and €100 for doing so on the final table. There is an additional €50 bonus if the player eliminates 2 WIPs and a €200 prize if the player eliminates 3 or more WIPs.
2/ Colossus format: this format is applied to the 2 Million Event KO, the Colossus, the Little KO and the High Five. In these tournaments, the paid places (12.5% of players paid) are reached on Day 1. Day 1 ends when (approximately) 5% of players remain. These 5% remaining will qualify for Day 2.
Therefore, the prizepool shown on Day 1 only applies to players eliminated on Day 1.
Players who qualify for Day 2 will be assured to win at least the biggest prize won by a player eliminated on all Day 1 tournaments.
All the money remaining after the end of Day 1 and after paying out the players who have been eliminated will be used as the prizepool for Day 2.
