Aussie Millions is one of the most talked about events in the history of poker, and it will now be returning to the old status of a standalone event that will be unaffiliated with other tours that have been established.

Just Days after PokerStars made its announcement that it was going to be discontinuing the regional tours and that everything will be folded up into on global size tour, with each event categorized as either a PokerStars Festival or a PokerStars Championship.

The Aussie Millions which has been played at the Crown Melbourne dates back to the year of 1998.  As well as having been a very interesting part of PokerStars since the year of 2014.

This Aussie Millions has been a long time staple for the global world poker circuit at the beginning of each and every calendar year, with its very huge prize pools that have been fueled by the year round players who have qualified from both live table as well as online poker playing.  The winners of this tournament are not unlikely to bank more than 1 million dollars.  Chapions from past tournaments have been poker players such as Tony Bloom who won in the year of 2004, Gus Hansen who won in the year of 2007, Alexander Kostritsyn who won in the year of 2008, Ami Barer who won in the year of 2014, and of course Ari Engel who won this year in 2016.

This exciting series was also a pioneer in embracing as well as promoting super high roller events, as Phil Ivey won three out of the four $250,000.00 Challenges from the years of 2012 to 2015.

The next Aussie Millions has been scheduled to kick of on January 11, 2016.
