The Sunday Million 16th Anniversary edition takes place at 5:05 p.m. GMT on March 20, meaning time is rapidly running out if you want to win you way into the $215 buy-in $10 million guaranteed event.
PokerStars wants as many of its players to have the opportunity to play for a share of a guaranteed $10 million that it has launched the Fast Track qualification route.
Round 1 of Fast Track sees you sit down in a $0.50 buy-in Sunday Million edition of the site’s popular Spin & Go jackpot sit & go tournaments. These award, among other prizes, $1.50 tickets to Round 2 of the Fast Track qualification process. The $1.50 buy-in satellites payout entries to the $5 buy-in Round 3, with those dishing out $20 Round 4 tickets. Those Round 4 satellites have up to 30x $215 Sunday Million 16th Anniversary seats guaranteed.

Traditional Sunday Million Satellites
There are, of course, other routes you can take if you want to play in the $10 million guaranteed Sunday Million for a fraction of its $215 buy-in. Freeroll tournaments run several times per day, making it possible to start your route to the final with no financial outlay.
Other traditional satellites come with buy-ins ranging from a mere $0.55 up to a still-affordable $55. Head to the $10M Sunday Million tab in the PokerStars lobby, click the MTT Sats tab, and type “Mega” into the search bar to bring up the value-packed Sunday Million Mega Sats. These Mega Sats come with buy-ins of $5.50, $11, $22, and $55, and payout between one and 30 seats to the $10 million guaranteed Sunday Million.
Sit & Go specialists have satellites of their own. Four-handed $1.50 and $55 buy-in sit & go satellites run throughout the day.
