Hard Rock Cincinnati will run a major bounty poker series this month. Poker players can look forward to 14 events full of action at the Ohio casino. The series takes place from from April 28-May 10.

The live tournament series will guarantee over $1 million in payouts. Each event will be a bounty-style tournament. Players will also have the opportunity to win a seat through a satellite event.

Mystery Bounty includes million dollar prize Pool

The main tournament of the Hard Rock Casino Cincinnati event will be the Mystery Bounty. The event has seven starting flights to pick from April 28-May 6. The multi flight, $1,100 buy-in event will come equipped with a million dollar guaranteed prize pool.

The Mystery Bounty will award mystery prizes to players knocked out on day two, when all players that survived their original flight join forces to duke it out until there is a winner.

Hard Rock has upped the ante this month by doubling their biggest mystery prize. Mystery bounties will range from $1,000 to $100,000. There is one guaranteed bounty of $100,000; one $25,000; one $20,000; two $10,000; one $5,000 and minimum $1,000. Guests will cash their bounties out when they are knocked out of the tournament. Bounties will be sealed and remain closed until a player is paid out.

Mystery bounties have taken the poker world by storm recently in the tournament realm. This exciting new trend offers players a chance to win big by eliminating opponents and receiving a mysterious envelope containing an unknown prize. The thrill of the unknown adds an extra layer of excitement to the game, as players eagerly await the moment they can open their envelopes and discover their rewards.

Satellites and daily tournaments at Hard Rock Cincinnati

Hard Rock Casino is rolling out the red carpet for players of all skill levels with their upcoming poker events. For those who may find the buy-ins a bit steep, fear not, as the casino will be offering live satellites for a chance to win a buy-in to the bigger events.

Plus, winners of these online events will automatically be entered into the live tournaments at Hard Rock. This presents an incredible opportunity for players to take part in high-stakes games without risking their entire bankroll. And for those looking for a more affordable way to get in on the action, the casino will also be hosting daily events with buy-ins as low as $100.

WSOP bracelet winner took down previous Hard Rock main event

Hard Rock hosted another series last month, where Alan Percal was victorious in the $500,000 guaranteed main event. Percal brought home $155,711 and the exclusive Hard Rock Trophy Guitar. Percal is a WSOP bracelet winner and has over $900,000 in lifetime winnings.

The Hard Rock Main Event saw 845 entries in total and crushed the guarantee by finalizing at $819,650.
