The final numbers are in for the 2019 Aussie Millions main event with the massive field of 820 entrants falling just shy of last year’s all-time record of 822 starters.
Nevertheless, 2020 goes down as the second biggest Aussie Millions main event field of all time as Australia’s longest running major tournament continues to go from strength to strength.
Now in its 22nd year, this year represents just the third time the Aussie Millions has cracked 800 players – all over the past three years – with the 17 players who registered at the start of Day 2 joining the 160 who participated in the opening Day 1 flight, 264 in the second flight and 379 in Monday’s third flight.
Crown Poker also announced details of the prize pool on Tuesday afternoon, with 88 players set to make the money and earn a minimum payday of $15,600. The final table of seven players will each be guaranteed at least $240,080 while the top two will become instant millionaires including a top prize of $1,850,000 for the winner.
Not bad for a week’s work!
