Full Tilt Poker and Party Poker Offer Last Minute Aussie Millions Satellites

You’d think that with the Aussie Millions tournament just six weeks away, most of the people that are going to the tournament would already have booked their flights and found their seats at the table. However, the online poker world is often fickle and if people are diligent about it they can find opportunities even at the last minute before the tournament begins. This has been proven true once again today with both Full Tilt Poker and Party Poker offering a slew of tournaments with end prizes that include packages to the 2010 Aussie Millions tournament starting on January 14th.

In the case of Full Tilt Poker, the end prize is a package going to the Aussie Millions worth $14,500. There are many of these prize packages available and there are satellite tournaments with buy-ins of $535 that people can enter right now in order to have a chance at securing one of the more than 10 of these packages that are left. Of course, since online poker is all about leverage, Full Tilt Poker offers super satellite tournaments for entry into these larger events as well. You can potentially pay $0.50 to enter a super satellite tournament and then parlay that amount into a trip to the Aussie Millions and its AUD 2.5 million grand prize.

In the case of Party Poker, there are multiple packages available that can be won through a number of different ways. There are direct buy-ins to satellite tournaments that award these prize packages that you can purchase for $640. At the same time however, Party Poker offers super satellite tournaments just like Full Tilt Poker does. Since they have a smaller player base their lowest buy-in amount is $1 as opposed to $0.50, but the end prize is that same sweet prize package that will allow you to go right to the 2010 Aussie Millions.

For anyone that wanted to go to the tournament but did not have the chance to win an earlier event, these last minute satellite tournaments could be just what the doctor ordered. A trip to Australia certainly won’t offend that doctor either.
