PokerStars $27M December Festival Set To Get Underway


December is the month of the year that most of us look forward to the most. Time with the family, plenty of festivities, gifts and fun times, yet PokerStars are about to make the month even more loveable as they have plenty of gifts for their players to hand out during the $27 million December festival.

There will be the usual promotions being run during the month which are listed down below, yet there will also be some new ones for players to take advantage of. There will be the first ever World Championship of Online Poker Challenge Series which allows players the chance at winning big money and possibly even seats into the $5,200 WCOOP Main Event next year.

Additionally the milestone hands will be coming back during December which allows players even more chances at winning some bonus cash. These will start on the 16th of December and will see tables and players awarded bonuses for every million hands that are played.

Double Vision Sunday

The first part of the festival starts on Sunday the 1st with their four biggest weekly tournaments being played out twice for the whole day on Double Vision Sunday. This means that there will be two of each of the Sunday Storm, Sunday Kickoff, Sunday Warm-Up and of course the Sunday Million.

Golden SNGs

Then between the 2nd and 8th of December we will see the return of the ever popular Golden SNG’s at the site. If you take part in any of these SNG’s there is a chance that it could be selected at random to be awarded either a bronze, silver or gold medal, with each medal bringing its own rewards for each of the players taking part.

Bronze will see each player handed back their –buy-ins, silver will see them receive an amount that is 3 times the size of their buy-ins as well as seeing the prize pool tripled and gold gives players 5 times their buy-in back and a prize pool that is increased by five times in size.

Million Dollar Sundays

It is very rare that any prize pool guarantees placed on events by PokerStars are not met, but they will now be really testing themselves by increasing the guarantees on selected Sunday tournaments on both the 8th and 15th of December under the guise of Million Dollar Sundays. The big one will be the Sunday Million on the 8th as it sees its prize pool guarantee increased from $1 million to a whopping $5 million.

Mission Week

Starting on the 9th of December will be the $500k Mission Week, which allows players to choose a particular mission when they deposit funds on to the site. Once the missions have been completed, the players are then eligible to take part in an all-in freeroll tournament that could net you some big winnings.
