$2 Million Spring at 888poker
There is $2 million guaranteed in the XL Spring Series at 888poker in late May and early June including a $500k guaranteed Main Event Mystery.
Spring is in the air and at 888poker that means big guarantees blooming in the XL Spring Series. There is $2 million guaranteed across the whole event which runs from May 21 through Jun 6, 2023.
With 32 featured events and a bounty of side events, there are more than 100 games for players to choose from in the XL Spring Series on 888poker. There are two multi-flight games running during the series with $700k guaranteed between them, and Day 1 flights for the first of them, $200,000 XL Spring #19 – Mystery Bounty 8-Max, start on May 24 with Day 2 on May 29.
The Main Event Mystery is the second multi-flight game of the series, and players can begin qualifying for that one on May 31. There is more than $600k in other guarantees across the rest of the featured events, plus nearly $700k more in side event guarantees, so there is plenty to play for on 888poker this spring.
Mystery Bounties Lead the Way
The latest format that has the poker world talking is the Mystery Bounty format, and the XL Spring Series is chock-full of them. Both multi-flight events are in the Mystery format and they will both have some truly eye-watering big bounties to be won.
The thickest envelope in the Main Event game will be $50k, so the winner will likely need more than just regular pockets to hold that one. In Event #19, the biggest prize to be won will be $20k.
The multi-flight events aren’t the only place players can find some mystery though – there are also mystery bounty games in both the one-day featured events as well as heavily sprinkled through the side events. The first event of the series, the Mystery Bounty Opening, is the third biggest prize pool of the whole series with $120k guaranteed and a $12k big bounty.

More Than Mystery
For online poker players who want a break from the Mystery Machine, there is plenty of other poker action on the go for this XL Spring Series. While there are quite a few games in the Mystery format, there are also progressive knockout games, super knockout, and even some old-school games where all the money goes into prizes and there are no bounties at all.
Games in the Spring Series range from $5.50 up to $525 so there are games for most bankrolls, but as always, there are also a lot of satellites to help players get in for cheaper. Players looking for the cheapest route to the Main Event can start from nothing – the XL Spring Main Event Freeroll has 13 seats guaranteed to a $25 qualifier that awards 3 seats to the Main Event.
There are a variety of other low-cost satellite options specifically tailored to the XL Spring series in the lobby starting from $2.20, but 888poker also has a healthy regular schedule of satellite games that feed into tickets for many of the smaller and side events as well. To find all the satellites on 888poker, select “Satellites” from the Category filter, and make sure “Show Satellites” is also selected on the bottom bar.
