Hunting Festival on PokerStars: Bounty Builder Series with $20,000,000 GTD
PokerStars has announced the October bounty hunt – the popular Bounty Builder series is returning to the poker room. A total of $20,000,000 in guaranteed prize money will be raffled during the PKO festival.
The series will take place from October 15 to 30. The tournament schedule includes more than 140 tournaments in Hold'em, Omaha and other disciplines.
Buy-ins start at $5.50.
Already at the start of the festival, players will have a warm-up in the Bounty Builder Series $55 NLHE event with a guarantee of $175,000. High rollers will also have something to play – the BBS Titan NLHE will be held as part of the series with a buy-in of $5,200 and a prize pool of $400,000.
But the most important thing is the Main Events, which start on October 29:
- $109 ME Low NLHE – 1 million dollars GTD;
- $1,050 ME High – $1,200,000 GTD.
Bounties in events are calculated according to the classic 50/50 formula: half of the reward goes to the player's account, and the second half is added to the prize for his own head.
As per tradition, a Power Path promotion is relevant for this festival. Holders of bronze, silver and gold passes will be able to get tickets to events with buy-ins from $22 to $109.
The complete schedule, available satellites and freerolls are now available in the PokerStars lobby. It is worth noting that a similar tournament festival called Bounty Hunters is also starting on GGPoker, so grinders have a lot to choose from.

How the 100% First Deposit Bonus works
Once you’ve made your deposit, you need to earn redemption points by playing real money games. Unless stated otherwise, you will earn 5 redemption points for every USD $1 you pay in rake or tournament fees (6.5 points per £1, 4 points per CAD $1, or 5.5 points per EUR €1).
Every time you reach 180 redemption points we’ll credit your Stars Account with $10 cash. You have four months after each qualifying deposit to earn all the redemption points needed to release your bonus.
You may only take advantage of one of our first deposit offers, but may be eligible for further deposit bonuses open to existing players. You can view any bonuses you have, alongside information on expiry dates, redemption point requirements and more, under the ‘My Stars’ menu.
Please note that redemption points will not be earned at pot-limit or no-limit tables with blinds of $5/$10 or higher, 8-game tables with stakes of $20/$40 or higher, or other limit games with stakes of $20/$40 or higher.
