What's on Tap: Saturday, August 4th

Tomorrow is the second day of the Mega Millions, and the schedule will be just like today. We kick things off with a $160 flight at 11:30 AM before upping the buy-in to $550 at 2 PM. However, we will dial it back down to $160 for the third and final session, which starts up at 4 PM.

The top 5% of the first and third flights will advance to the finals, while the top 10% will move on from the 2 PM flight. It will be an exciting day, so don't miss out on it!

Nearly 100 Players in the 4 PM Session

The final flight of the day is coming back from it's first break now, and we have a total of 96 entries. Registration is open until 7 PM, so you still have plenty of time to brave the Friday rush hour traffic and come join us.

If you can't come out today, your next chance to qualify will be tomorrow at 11:30 AM.

By the Numbers: Afternoon $550 Session

The first $550 starting flight of Mega Millions XIX drew a crowd of 96 players. That means that the final 10 players will be bagging and tagging tonight, locking up $1,000 as well. If you want to play another one of these higher buy-in flights where the top 10% advance, your next chance will be tomorrow at 2 PM!

1-10. Advance to Day 2 + $1,000

Some Snapshots From the $550 Session

It's time to show you guys a few of the players who are here for the afternoon $550 session! We spotted former Legends of Poker and Mega Millions champion Mike Shariati. We also found a funny duo sitting side by side: Mark Jun and Beau Winn. These two just went deep in the $200,000 Guaranteed Event, both finishing in the top 15 but falling short of the final table.

The 19th Mega Millions Is Now Underway!

Welcome back ladies and gentlemen! It's the day that many of you have been waiting for, the start of the 19th Mega Millions. This tournament provides the unique opportunity for one player to turn a buy-in as low as $160 into a payday of around $300,000!

We have three flights starting up today, and the first one has just kicked off! As mentioned above, the buy-in is just $160, but all players have an optional $100 add-on at anytime before registration closes, which will be 2:30 PM.

The second flight of the day starts at 2 PM, and for that one, the buy-in will be up to $550. But don't worry guys! The buy-in goes right back down to $160 for the 4 PM flight.

We look forward to you coming down to take part in one of the biggest tournaments of the year in Southern California!
