As we bid farewell to the blooms of May, 888poker is set to rain down a bounty of rewards on its players. Kicking off on May 21, the 2023 XL Spring Series promises a bounty of excitement and riches that will continue until June 6.
The 2023 XL Spring Series features a packed schedule with over 100 games, including both featured tournaments and side events. This year, players will be battling it out for an extra $500k in prizes compared to the previous series. The series comprises 32 main events and an additional 72 side events. By the end of June 6, players would have divided a guaranteed sum of $2 million in prizes.
The Main Attractions
Two enormous multi-flight events will be the highlights of this series. The first is the $200k guaranteed Mystery Bounty 8-Max, which kicks off on May 24. The other major draw is the half-million dollar guaranteed Main Event that starts on May 31.
Though these are the main events, they account for less than half of the total series guarantees. The one-day tournaments also offer a lot of value to the players. The XL Spring-branded Sunday Mystery Bounty 22 on May 21, 28, and June 4 gives players the chance to win as much as $20k or more for a minimal buy-in of $22. Side event guarantees vary between $20k to $5k.
A Spring Full of Mystery
Mystery bounties are the current hot trend in the poker world, and the XL Spring Main Event is not straying away from it. The whole event boasts a guaranteed $500,000, and one lucky player stands a chance to win an envelope worth $50k.
Day 1 flights for the Main Event Mystery begin on May 31, offering players multiple opportunities per day to win. The mystery bounties kick in on Day 2, which runs on June 5, starting at 4 pm ET.
The mystery bounty format holds allure for many because a handful of fortunate players stand a chance to win big. The top envelope will contain a whopping $50k, and the top three bounty values total up to $110k.
Apart from the two major multi-flight games, there is still an abundance of value. The Bounty Opening, for example, is among the most valuable games in the series with a guaranteed prize of $120k.
The series also features seven other tournaments with guarantees of more than $25k and over $600k up for grabs in the side events.
The $5.50 Sunday Mystery Bounty, one of the series’ lowest buy-in games, offers excellent value, with a return of $1273 guaranteed for every dollar spent to buy in. All in all, the 2023 XL Spring Series at 888poker promises to be an exhilarating ride with a prize shower that’s worth waiting for.
