As usual, PokerStars is bursting with bonuses, freeroll opportunities and major poker tournaments! As for the latter, MicroMillions III is still running at Stars, and the $1 million Main Event is just around the corner. Players also have the chance to win $16,000 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) prize packages through freerolls and cheap satellites. As if this isn’t enough, Stars is offering a special PCA 10th Anniversary deposit bonus where a tournament ticket and extra cash are available. With so much going on at this site right now, it’s definitely worth looking at these deals more closely.
$5 Million Guaranteed MicroMillions III
Just about any poker player would love to compete for prize pools worth hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars. The only problem is that poker rooms normally have to jack up the buy-ins to $200 or more just to cover the guarantees. This is where MicroMillions comes in because grinders get an opportunity to play for big money without going broke.
Take the MicroMillions Main Event, for instance, where players can try to win a piece of the $1 million prize pool for just $22. Sure this may seem like a large amount to those with small bankrolls, but no other poker site offers this low of buy-ins for such a huge tournament. And if you’d still like to play in the Main Event – yet don’t want to pay $22 – keep in mind that MicroMillions III satellites are currently running.
This event concludes on November 25th, 2012, so if you’re interested in winning big money without paying large buy-ins, hurry and get to PokerStars! Now here’s a look at some of the remaining tourneys left in MicroMillions (all times ET):

PCA Freerolls and Satellites running
Wouldn’t it be great to bask in the Bahaman sun this January while playing in a tournament with a $10 million prize pool? If you think so, keep in mind that PokerStars will be running 2012 PCA satellites and freerolls until December 9th, 2012. The freerolls are especially nice because you could win a $16k PCA prize package without spending a dime of your own money!
Those looking to start a little higher on the path towards a prize package can also buy into the satellites that are also running until the 9th. To find the satellites and freerolls, you simply need to look in the PokerStars lobby under the ‘Events’ > ‘PCA’ > ‘All’ tabs.
When searching for 2012 PCA satellites, keep in mind that last year’s event featured a $10,398,400 prize pool, and 160 players finished in the money. Amateur poker player and stock trader John Dibella grabbed the largest cash after he earned $1,175,000 for winning the tournament. Runner-up Kyle Julius was also paid well since he collected $1.5 million thanks to a final table deal with Dibella.
