THE Aussie Millions 2019 tournament will again be held at Crown Casino, with Australia’s richest poker tournament, scheduled to start on January 15.

The action-packed schedule will include the official gold bracelet event, satellites and cash games, along with daily tournaments running for 21 consecutive days.

The tournament is Australasia’s largest and longest-running, which includes the coveted Aussie Millions Main Event, slated to run over eight days from Sunday January 27 – Sunday February 3 2019 with over 700 entrants and an estimated total prize pool of AUD$7 million.

Due to a predicted large number of entrants, the Aussie Millions Main Event will feature three starting flights; Sunday January 27, Monday 28 and Tuesday 29 January.

“The 2018 Aussie Millions is proving to be our biggest and best to date and we can’t wait to see what the 2019 tournament will bring as the poker stage has never been brighter, and the team are already hard at work to make the next event the biggest and best yet,” says Aussie Millions Tournament Director, Joel Williams.

Nearly 100 poker tables will be set up in the Crown Poker Room to accommodate the thousands of players from over 35 countries who visit the complex during January to compete for a share of a total estimated prize pool of over AUD$24 million.

The current slate of individual events offered during the 2019 Aussie Millions are being finalised, with 26 official gold ring events expected and a broad range of other poker variations at both entry level and championship level.
