PokerStars Introduces Mystery Bounty Tournaments in Style

Two inaugural Mystery Bounty tournaments at PokerStars were a complete success, blowing their respective guarantees out of the water.

The first-ever Mystery Bounty tournaments at PokerStars kicked the ball out of the park, attracting thousands of players and smashing guarantees.

On January 7, PokerStars finally introduced long-awaited Mystery Bounty tournaments, adding yet another game format to the platform. Two inaugural MB events were played as a part of the New Year Series and were a great success, attracting thousands of players.

PokerStars picked its marquee Sunday Million tournament to introduce Mystery Bounties on January 7, and the event ended up attracting over 16,000 entries, creating a prize pool in excess of $1.6 million.

One lucky player picked up the main $50k bounty, while five more banked over $15k in MB prizes alone. In total, 2,656 Mystery Bounties were claimed.

Looking to cater to the wider player base, the operator also offered a cheaper $11 Mystery Bounty event with a big $250,000 guarantee. The biggest MB picked up in this one was $10,000.
