Ignition Poker Offers Mad Monday And Monthly Milly Events

Poker players and fans of the game who live in Australia have few options to play poker online. The Australian government succeeded in scaring most of them away…all while not understanding the difference between poker and pokies. Until they’re willing to listen and realize that poker is predominantly a skill game, Aussies often have trouble finding good online poker games. Ignition Poker has the answer for those players. They not only provide daily cash games and tournaments, but they have several lucrative tournaments and series on the calendar. First up will be Mad Monday on 17 January and then Wild Wednesday on 25-26 January and the Monthly Milly on 30 January.

Mad Monday: 17 January

Once a month, Ignition Poker hosts a Mad Monday schedule of tournaments with a range of buy-ins and guarantees. Buy-ins start at just $5.50 and top out at $500, but most remain at or below $100. And guarantees will be as high as $150K, though the entire day of tournaments will guarantee nearly $500K in total.

The full schedule of events on 17 January is:

Monthly Milly: 30 January

Ignition Poker has been hosting the Monthly Milly for some time, and it’s become wildly popular. One Sunday per month offers a $535 buy-in tournament with a massive $1M guarantee. Players can register from now through Level 20 of the tournament, which will be:

  • Monthly Milly (30 January): $535 buy-in NLHE (4 reentries allowed, 25K starting chips)

Steps satellites are already in progress, starting at just $0.60 for Step 1. They give players the chance to move through the four steps to win a seat to the Monthly Milly. Most of those steps tournaments even have a certain number of guaranteed seats to the next step.

For the two weeks prior to the tournament – starting 16 January – there is an increased number of direct satellites. They cost $60 to enter, but there are sub-satellites for them that start at just $7.70. Even better, “cheap seat” satellites start at just $1.10.

Simply select the “Monthly Milly” in the tournament filter, and all of the satellites will appear. You can also filter those results by buy-in amount or those registering or in late registration.

Weekly Freerolls

Ignition poker players can play a weekly freeroll. There is no requirement; players need only go to their Rewards Dashboard and claim the ticket. The weekly events happen every Thursday and offer $2,500 in the prize pool.

In addition, players will find a Social Media Freeroll opportunity every Tuesday. Ignition’s social media account will provide the information each week. Those freerolls offer $250 weekly.
