Monday 23 July 2018. MELBOURNE, Australia. Crown Melbourne has today announced the 2019 Aussie Millions Poker Championship will run from Tuesday 15 January to Monday 4 February.

Hosted by Crown Melbourne, one of the world’s leading integrated entertainment resorts, the Aussie Millions transforms Crown into a mecca of the poker world during the peak of the Australian Summer. The action-packed schedule will include the official gold bracelet event, satellites and cash games, along with daily tournaments running for 21 consecutive days.

With a reputation that ranks alongside the world’s elite, the Crown’s Aussie Millions is the marquee event on the Asia-Pacific poker calendar. Since its inception in 1998, the Aussie Millions has grown into a major stop on the international poker circuit and is attended by the majority of the world’s greatest players.

Crown Melbourne’s Tournament Director Joel Williams said ““The 2018 Aussie Millions saw the Main Event break through the magical 800-player barrier for the first time in its long history and we can’t wait to see what the 2019 Series will bring. The poker stage has never been brighter and the team at Crown have been hard at work to make next year’s event even better than the last.”

Every year in excess of 7,500 players from all across the world descend on Melbourne for the three week poker festival - all with hopes of taking home part of the estimated AUD$21 million total prize pool that’s generated each year.

Nearly 100 poker tables will be set up across the award-winning Crown complex to accommodate the thousands of players from over 35 countries who visit Crown during January to compete for a share of a total estimated prize pool of over AUD$21 million. The current slate of individual events offered during the 2019 Aussie Millions, features with 27 official gold Championship ring events expected, with buy-ins ranging from AUD$1,150 to AUD$100,000, and a broad range of other poker variations at both entry-level and championship level.
