Cards in the Air: $430 Satellite to the Day 2 Buy-in

In preparation for tomorrow's Day 2 buy-in here at the 18th Mega Millions, we are offering two $430 buy-in satellites where at least three players will be earning a 90% discount to the finals, earning a $4,300 buy-in. Registration for this satellite will be open until about 9:45 PM tonight.

If you can't make it out for this one, you can come here bright and early at 10 AM tomorrow for a Turbo Satellite with the same buy-in, where at least one more discounted Day 2 buy-in will be handed out!

By the Numbers: Final Mega Millions Starting Session

The final Day 1 session of the Mega Millions was one of the biggest ones yet, as 298 players came out to try and get one of those coveted final Day 2 tickets. The final 30 will be in the money tonight, with the top 15 moving on to the finals tomorrow.

After all of the day one sessions, the prizepool is up to over $1.7 million, but that number will only be going up with all of our Day 2 buy-ins tomorrow. Make sure you don't miss out on this one, as first place should be taking home around $300,000!

1-15. Advance to Day 2 + $1,000
16-23. $400
24-30. $300

The First Session Has Hit The Money

It took exactly eight hours for the opening session of the day to hit the money, as we are down to the final 26 players now. They have all locked up $300, but they all have their eyes on the top 13. That will lock them up $1,000, but more importantly, will give them a seat to tomorrow's finals.

Be sure to come back tomorrow for a full list of all of the survivors for the Day 2 finals.

What's on Tap: Day 2 Of Mega Millions, Start of $250,000 Guaranteed

As you can tell by the title, there will be plenty of action here at the Bicycle Casino tomorrow! We start things off bright and early at 10 AM with our final $430 Satellite to the Day 2 buy-in. At least one discounted seat to the Mega Millions Day 2 buy-in will be given out. The winners from that satellite will automatically be entered in with a stack of 250,000 in chips.

The finals start at 1 PM, with registration for the Day 2 buy-in open until 2:40 PM. We posted earlier some details about the Day 2 buy-in. You can see them here!

Even if you aren't in the Mega Millions finals, we still have some poker action for you! At 4 PM, we have the first flight of our final event of the month, the $250,000 Guaranteed Event! The buy-in is $245, and registration will be open until 7 PM. The top 10$ will advance to Day 2 on Saturday, and receive $400.

It will be a great day of poker, so make sure you are here for all the fun!

Plenty of Former Big Winners At One Table

We spotted quite a stacked table over in the $550 session as registration was wrapping up. It included three former huge winners here at the Bike, along with a couple other regulars: Derek Gregory and Joel Kop.

This table features David "The Dragon" Pham, who just won the WSOP Circuit Main Event here two weeks ago. Another former winner of that event is also at the table: Freddy Deeb. Deeb also registered a massive score when he finished runner up at the Legends of Poker Main Event to Mike Shariati. One year later, Pat Lyons would take down the title, and he is also at that table, making for one of the toughest lineups to face in the tournament room!


By the Numbers: Final $550 Session

The last $550 session was one of the biggest ones of the event with a total of 246 players. That means that 25 more seats will be handed out for tomorrow's finals. If you would like to play in the finals tomorrow, but can't buy in directly, the final starting session is open until 7 PM tonight. Don't miss it!

Some Details on Tomorrow's Day 2 Buy-In

Tomorrow is the day that many of you have been waiting for: the Day 2 finals of the Mega Millions. So far,  306 players have moved on to the finals, and that number will be growing today with our final three sessions. As the title indicates, we wanted to give you some more information about the Day 2 buy-in option tomorrow.

The action starts at 1 PM tomorrow, and players will have until about 2:40 PM tomorrow to buy-in directly for $4,300. That will get you 250,000 in chips, and the blinds at the start of the day will be just 2,000-4,000. All levels will be 45 minutes long tomorrow, and players will have one single re-entry allowed before 2:40 PM as well.

Click here for a full structure over the next two days, and be sure to come on out tomorrow when the finals start to get the max value out of your Day 2 buy-in!

Some Photos From the $550 Session

We spotted plenty of big former winners here at the Bike trying to get one of the last Day 2 tickets available for this Mega Millions. Included on this list is former Mega Millions Champion Chris Kwong. We also found former Legends of Poker champion Harry Arutyunyan, as well as Andrew Wisdom who won the Card Player Main Event here in October last year.
