Not long to go now. Yes we are talking about Christmas! The next 37 days are bound to fly by.

And there’s one thing we love doing over the festive period, playing online poker of course.

The Christmas break is probably the best time of the year to play online poker. You have a sudden rush of inexperienced (and drunk) poker players joining the online poker game. There’s no better chance to win some big bucks.

So where else is there better to play than at PokerStars over the festive period?

The PokerStars Christmas line up

From now to 2016 the world’s most popular online poker site, PokerStars, will be paying out more than $10,000,000 in prizes. A big poker win would definitely make your Christmas this year.

As of yesterday, 16 November 2015, PokerStars has kicked-off the Daily Double Jackpot tournament series. This tournament series consists of six tournaments each day between now and the end of the year.

The six Daily Double Jackpot series tournaments run at 13:00, 14:00 and 15:00 each day. Two tournaments start at each time. $260,000 is guaranteed each day in these tournaments between Monday and Saturday. And on Sundays there’s an incredible $760,000 guaranteed!

On top of the huge prize pools in the Daily Double Jackpot series, if you are good enough to win two Daily Double tournaments at the same buy-in level you will win a $1,000,000 jackpot!

The big Christmas tourney at PokerStars

After all that Christmas dinner, and the leftovers on boxing day, the 27th December is the perfect day to relax and play some poker.

Probably the largest online Christmas poker tournament will take place on that day, the $5,000,000 guaranteed Sunday Million. The winner of this tournament is guaranteed a minimum of $500,000! Buy-in directly or enter via satellite tournaments for just $1!

Get your PokerStars bonus on the way

If you are joining PokerStars to participate in their fantastic festive line-up, you might want to know about the huge new player bonus available to you.

For all new players to PokerStars, a 100% poker bonus up to $400 is offered. One of the good things about PokerStars is that your first three deposits at PokerStars qualify for this bonus.

For example, if you made an initial deposit of $20, and then hit your maximum eligible bonus of $20, you could deposit a second amount up to $380 that would also qualify for a bonus.
