The PokerGO® Stairway To Millions™ begins this week at The Venetian® Resort Las Vegas starting on Thursday, September 8, 2022. The 12-event series will also feature guaranteed prize pools in each event with a total of $2,150,000 in total guaranteed prize money.
The Stairway To Millions is a unique tournament series with escalating buy-ins that start at $460 and culminate with a $52,000 finale. Each player that cashes will win a seat into the next buy-in level, and those players that finish in the top three will leapfrog an entire buy-in level. The Stairway To Millions builds in a satellite approach for each tournament while also paying out the remainder of the prize pool as each event will play down to a winner the following day.
