  • At least $50million in prize money to be won in GGPoker’s Bounty Hunters Series
  • Tournament series to run from October 16-November 7
  • New players can get $600 by registering with bonus code NEWBONUS
GGPoker has launched its Bounty Hunters Series, which will start on October 16th.

Running through to November 7th, at least $50,000,000 in prizes will be won across the series, which consists of progressive bounty poker tournaments with buy-ins starting from $5.25. 

The GGPoker Bounty Hunters series is headlined by a flagship event, the $210 Mystery Bounty Main Event on November 7th with $5m Guaranteed and a $500,000 Top Bounty.

Other tournament highlights include Global MILLIONS Bounty Edition with $1M GTD (Final Stage on October 23), daily Special Edition GGMasters $25 Bounty Freezeouts, and Sunday Special Editions.

All series events, apart from the $210 Mystery Bounty Main Event, will feature GGPoker’s new Bounty Jackpot mechanic, with prizes of up to $1,000,000 available to players that knock out an opponent and win a jackpot prize.

Satellite tournaments into various events will run throughout the GGPoker Bounty Hunters series.

In bounty tournaments, players win prizes each time they eliminate another participant from the event.

These bounty prizes are paid in addition to any standard prizes won. The more opponents you knock out, the more prizes you will win!

"Everyone loves bounty tournaments, and it’s easy to see why; all players have targets on their back and it’s hunt or be hunted at the tables," said Sarne Lightman, Global Head of GGPoker.

"This is our second Bounty Hunters Series of the year, and there’s so much player interest that we’ve increased the total prize pool guarantee from $30 million to $50 million - let the hunt begin!"

New GGPoker players are eligible to claim the poker room’s Welcome Bonus and can use the GGPoker bonus code NEWBONUS to get started with up to $600.

New players can also earn more rewards with the Honeymoon for Newcomers promotion and automatically join GGPoker’s Fish Buffet loyalty program, with regular cash prizes on offer. 

In GGPoker’s progressive bounty tournament format, the bounty prizes also grow bigger as players knock each other out; by eliminating a player that has previously knocked out multiple opponents, you will claim a much bigger bounty prize than available at the start of an event.

In a mystery bounty poker tournament, the buy-in is split 50/50, with half going into the standard prize pool and the other half going into the bounty prize pool.
