We’re bringing the heat to the 888poker tables this winter season with another massive XL Winter Series! This online series promises to deliver with over $2.5M in guarantees and a very affordable $250 buy-in $500,000 GTD multi-flight Main Event!

This XL Series will have a special twist with many events sporting a Mystery Bounty – one of 888poker’s latest, popular tournament features.

The tournament series will run from 15/1/2023, hitting a high note on 25/1/2023 with the start of the $500,000 GTD multi-flight Main Event Day 1s. Featuring affordable buy-ins, ranging from $5.50 to $55 for most events, we are focused on what our players want – bargain buy-ins and value for money!

Another series highlight is the $100,000 GTD XL Winter #26 Super High Roller 6-Max, happening on 29/1 at 19:00 GMT. With a $2,100 buy-in, the sharks will undoubtedly be circling this event!

Of course, the highlight of the series will be the $250 buy-in, $500,000 GTD Main Event, with Day 2 happening on Sunday, 30/1/2023, at 20:00 GMT.
