The popular XL Winter Series is back on 888poker. The series kicked off on January 16 and will run until the 31st, featuring more than $1,500,000 in guarantees spread across 44 events. Each event comes with a Main, Mini, and Late version taking place each day throughout the series.

Value for Money

Over the years, 888poker has built a reputation for hosting huge-value tournaments, and it continues the tradition this year. The majority of the events at this year’s XL Winter Series have affordable buy-ins ranging between $16.50 and $55, though the tournaments offering the biggest guarantees have an entry fee of at least $109.
If you’re keen on taking a shot at the key tournaments on the schedule without spending that much money, you can do so via multiple freerolls and satellites running on the platform.
The main highlight of the series is easily the $250 buy-in, $500,000 GTD Main Event which takes place on January 30, but there are several other tournaments on the schedule to be on the lookout for, including Event #22: $200,000 Tune-Up which has an entry fee of $109.
Take a look at how you can win a seat into these events for a more affordable price:

$200K Tune-Up Satellites & Freerolls

This tournament features the second-biggest guarantee of the festival and takes place on January 23. It costs $109 to enter but you can win a ticket into the tournament for free as 888poker is running two freerolls every day. Additionally, the site is also hosting $16.50 and $22 satellites. The first option awards between 10-60 tickets, while in the second one, there are 40 seats to be won.
Standard satellites are also available where you can win a $109 ticket. You can then use that to take part in any tournament on the XL Winter Series schedule with a $109 buy-in, apart from the Tune-Up event. The standard satellites also run daily on 888poker.

$500K Main Event Satellites & Freerolls
