March is synonymous for the taste of chocolate. The festivities of the Easter weekend driving confectionary giants into fervor during one of their busiest weekends of the year, a fact that has not been lost on the two giants of the online poker world. It’s Easter everyone and both Full Tilt Poker and PokerStars have something sweet in store for you.

March Mayhem for Full Tilt and PokerStars

In an unprecedented step, Full Tilt Poker have chosen the sweet month of march to slap a guaranteed prize pool on every tournament that is showcased in its plush lobby. Full Tilt Poker promise to guarantee more than $25 million in tournament prize pools through the month in a bid to drive customers back to a felt that was once packed to the rafters with players.

The month of March will see tournaments flying at poker players at the same pace of foil flying into the trash after the unwrapping of chocolate eggs. There promises to be one guaranteed tournament every 10-minutes, and a staggering 225 cash tournaments every single day of the month. As you would expect there would be a large offering of events that are unique to the Full Tilt brand with 28-30 Rush tournaments, 15-20 multi-entry tournaments, 10-15 re-entry tournaments and 6-8 multi-chance tournaments every single day.

Sarne Lightman, Head of Marketing at Full Tilt Poker, said: “From Rush tournaments to multi-entry events, Full Tilt Poker has always been the market leader in providing players with a huge range of diverse and innovative tournaments.”

“Full Tilt Poker’s scheduled tournaments already offer round-the-clock action every day of the week with a wide range of buy-ins and guaranteed prize pools to choose from,” Lightman continued. “The new schedule is another market first offering our players the only fully guaranteed schedule of any online site.”

Now if that doesn’t whet your appetite then why not turn to PokerStars? The month of March will see the MicroMillions series return for the fourth year. An amazing set of tournaments that allow bankrolls of all shapes and sizes to win big for a relative small buy-in. The MicroMillions series runs from 14-24 March and will feature Zoom tournaments for the very first time. Two Zoom events are planned to be showcased carrying guarantees of $50,000 & $75,000 respectively.

The total guaranteed prize pools equates to a juicy looking $5 million with $1 million reserved for the piéce de résistance: The Main Event.

So head to the shop and get your fill of sugar for sure, but just make sure you have enough pennies left over to divulge in some tasty poker action during the month of March.
