Including a $3,500 buy-in Wynn Millions Championship with a $3 million guarantee, when it returns to Las Vegas in the spring. Wynn Millions Festival will have guarantees of $8 million from February 20 to March 19.
The Wynn Millions festival, which begins on February 20 and runs through March 19, offers more than $8 million in guaranteed prize pools over 28 days, including a $600 No Limit Hold’em event with a guarantee of $200,000 over two days and a $1.5 million Mystery Bounty event.
The Wynn Poker Room’s “8 Million Up for Grabs” events always draw a lot of big names and big action, and this year’s festival looks like it will be no different.
On February 20, the one-day $500 No Limit Hold’em tournament will kick things off, with players competing for a share of the $50,000 guaranteed prize pool. After that, a No Limit Hold’em tournament with a guaranteed prize pool of $200,000 will begin, followed by a $30,000-guaranteed $600 H.O.R.S.E. tournament.
Players looking to become the latest big bounty winner are certain to field a large field in the $1.5 million guaranteed Mystery Bounty tournament. On February 26, the competition will play down to a winner with three starting flights.
A two-day $1,100 seniors event with a $100,000 guarantee
A $400 Ladies event with a $20,000 guarantee, and a number of mixed game offerings, such as the $50,000 guaranteed $1,100 Limit Omaha 8/B event and the $10,500 PLO High Roller, are additional highlights of the series.
The Wynn Millions Championship, the festival’s biggest draw, will have three starting flights where players try to build up their 40,000 starting stack. The tournament will likely last a long time because it will run for six days and have a winner when the final table meets on March 11.
Since the Wynn Millions began in 2021, the championship event has had a $10,000 buy-in, but this year’s offering is $3,500.
As part of the Poker GO Tour (PGT), the series will also feature three High Roller events, including two $10,500 No-Limit Hold’em events and a $10,500 Pot-Limit Omaha event.
The previous Wynn Millions Main Event had a $10,000 buy-in and 1,075 participants, resulting in a $10.1 million prize pool. The event was one for the books because several big names made deep runs. One of them was Andrew Moreno, who won the Wynn Millions in 2021 and finished in 24th place for $71,657.
After battling a formidable final table that included Sean Perry (8th – $202,908), Tony Tran (6th – $304,161), Vanessa Kade (4th – $527,481), and Alex Livingston (3rd – $745,749), Tony Sinishtaj prevailed over Isaac Kempton during heads-up play to win $1.6 million.
