Because online poker has seen a resurgence in 2020, it is become common for providers to offer players new and exciting options for gameplay. Over the past few months, top operators have launched new festivals and series, new game formats and promotions to keep the momentum going. For GGPoker, 2020 has been a huge year of growth. The new online gaming brand has blossomed to a top provider in the industry and are one of the operators continuing to provide new and exciting options. The operator recently announced a brand-new High Rollers Week featuring $22 million in total prize money.
High Rollers Rejoice!
For players who enjoy high stakes, the new High Rollers Week is right up your alley. This is the third time the series has taken place and the total prize money up for grabs is the most yet at $22 million. Players will be able to compete in 20 events over an eight day time frame. Because of the low number of events, the prize pool will average around $1 million per tournament.
Because the series is geared at High Rollers, players will find the buy-ins are larger. On the low end, players will pay $525 to compete, while the high end is $25,000. For the most part, buy-ins will range from $1,050 to $10,300.
Players will be able to compete in No Limit Hold’em events for the most part. Other formats will be on offer too including Short Deck and Pot Limit Omaha. Deepstacks and progressive knockouts are on the agenda for a mix of gaming.
There are a few events on the schedule that players are familiar with but they have been amped up a bit for the High Rollers Week. Super MILLION$ and GGMasters High Roller will be on the schedule and have boosted guarantees.
The GGMasters High Rollers will feature a $1.5 million prize pool instead of its traditional $1 million. For the Super MILLION$, the event will include $3 million in prize money and $10,300 for the buy-in. each of these events take place on the opening day, kicking things off with a bang.
Additional events on the schedule include the NLHE Super High Roller, which has a $25,000 buy-in. The prize pool for this event is $2.5 million. The only Short Deck event on the schedule will take place on November 14 and offer a buy-in of $10,300.
The High Rollers Week takes place at the same time as the Battle of Malta. GGPoker is hosting the Battle of Malta online as it could not take place at Casino Malta as it usually does due to the coronavirus. The series kicked off online on November 1 and will continue through November 22. Players are competing for a whopping $30 million in total prize money.
The online poker action is plentiful at GGPoker over the next two weeks. Players can easily log in and play in the Battle of Malta and High Rollers Week, if their bankroll permits! It will be interesting to see how both series fare, once it is all said and done. It would not be surprising to find the guarantees shattered as players log in at record numbers.
