At Least $50M In Prizes Up For Grabs In GGPoker’s Bounty Hunters Series

Tournament series to run from October 16 through November 7

GGPoker today launches its Bounty Hunters Series, which runs from October 16 through November 7. At least $50,000,000 in prizes will be won across the series, which consists of progressive bounty poker tournaments with buy-ins starting from $5.25. 

The Bounty Hunters Series is headlined by a flagship event:

  • $210 MYSTERY BOUNTY Main Event – Final Stage on November 7 – $5,000,000 GTD, $500K Top Bounty

Other highlights include:

  • Global MILLION$ Bounty Edition, $1M GTD – Final Stage on October 23 – $1,000,000 GTD
  • Special Edition GGMasters $25 Bounty Freezeouts – Three chances to win big each day
  • Bounty Hunters Daily Main
  • Sunday Special Editions – Sunday High Rollers Main, Sunday Big Game and more

All series events, apart from the $210 MYSTERY Bounty Main Event, will feature GGPoker’s new Bounty Jackpot mechanic, with prizes of up to $1,000,000 available to players that knock out an opponent and win a jackpot prize.

Satellite tournaments into various events will run throughout the series.

In bounty tournaments, players win prizes each time they eliminate another participant from the event; these bounty prizes are paid in addition to any standard prizes won. The more opponents knocked out, the more prizes a player will claim. 

In GGPoker’s progressive bounty tournament format, the bounty prizes also grow bigger as players knock each other out; by eliminating a player that has previously knocked out multiple opponents, you will claim a much bigger bounty prize than available at the start of an event.

In a mystery bounty poker tournament, some exciting format changes are added to the mix; firstly, the buy-in is split 50/50, with half going into the standard prize pool and the other half going into the bounty prize pool. The play is split up into phases, with Phase 1 proceeding like a standard tournament and no bounties paid out as players are eliminated. 

In the Final Stage, knock outs are now infused with excitement as each player that eliminates another will receive a random mystery bounty, with the biggest prize as likely to be claimed when the Final Stage’s first knockout occurs as on the final hand of the event!

“Everyone loves bounty tournaments, and it’s easy to see why; all players have targets on their back and it’s hunt or be hunted at the tables,” said Sarne Lightman, Global Head of GGPoker. “This is our second Bounty Hunters Series of the year, and there’s so much player interest that we’ve increased the total prize pool guarantee from $30 million to $50 million – let the hunt begin!”

New GGPoker players are eligible to claim the poker room’s Welcome Bonus, earn even more rewards with the Honeymoon for Newcomers promotion and automatically join GGPoker’s Fish Buffet loyalty program, with regular cash prizes on offer.
