BetOnline Micro Stakes Summer Festival Starts June 25
Tens of thousands of poker players are in Las Vegas for the World Series of Poker. Millions more poker players around the world cannot make that trip, whether due to finances, family, or employment obligations. However, they shouldn’t be left out of the poker space.
BetOnline decided to offer a series for all of them. It doesn’t require a big bankroll or any travel.
The Micro Stakes Summer Festival is offering this series of 35 tournaments online with buy-ins as low as $1.10. And the finale alone will guarantee $250K.
