Borgata Poker, in partnership with BetMGM Poker, has announced a new edition of the million-dollar poker tournament Almighty Million. It follows the return of high-stakes poker at the Borgata with “The Return” in January, where Borgata Poker crowned a $1 million winner.
“Almighty Million assures another week of big bets and even bigger pots in this No Limit Hold’Em Tournament,” the company stated. Day 1 flights begin on Sunday, May 7, with the final table taking place on Saturday, May 13.
Kellie DeCelis, Borgata’s Manager of Poker Operations, explained: “Almighty has been synonymous with Borgata Poker for nearly a decade. It’s been three years since Borgata offered this type of event as part of the Borgata Winter Open, and Almighty is always one of the most anticipated events on the calendar that brings the same excitement with a $1,000,000 guaranteed prize pool.”
