1MFreeroll

Do you want to get a cut of $5 million in prizes and win a seat in the last $1m freeroll of 2016?

The next six weeks at PokerStars are perfect for you then as the annual Christmas Festival begins today and runs right until the New Year.

Among the highlights this year are the $2 million 25-day Christmas Calendar, a 21-event MicroMillions Marathon Day, a $2m Monday Million and the last of 2016's $1m freerolls.

It's a Christmas money free-for-all, really, and the action begins now.

Daily Christmas Calendar

Depending on your Holiday schedule and playing preferences it's hard to pick which event is the centerpiece of the festival.

To start it all off, qualifying for the $1,000,000 freeroll begins today. It only requires completing a small daily challenge between November 21-29 to get in to that day's All-in Shootout qualifier.

You don't even need to be around to play that event as all players are all in every hand and the final 8,192 players all get seats to the $1m freeroll.

If you miss one of those 9 chances there's still the Last Chance Skill Qualifier tournament on the day of the $1 Million Freeroll - Dec. 1 - which can get you in.

Once the big freeroll is over it's on to the full December Christmas Calendar.

For the first 25 days of the month $2 million in prizes will be up for grabs with a new promotion or activity to unlock every day in your Challenges window.

Deposit bonuses, Spin & Go challenges, freerolls and random giveaways are just a few of the gifts.

Massive MicroMillions Marathon

Hidden behind one of the Christmas Calendar doors is also a MicroMillions Marathon day

To finish things off on Boxing Day is a special $2 million guaranteed Monday Million with the winner getting $200,000. 

If the standard buy-in is still too much for your bankroll you can of course satellite in all month long.
