The Sunday Billion takes place at 15:00 ET every Sunday, and has a buy-in of 1,000,000 chips. To find it in the desktop client, search for ‘Billion’ using the ‘Find a tournament’ filter under the ‘Tournaments’ tab. To search in the mobile app, access the ‘Search’ function through the ‘More’ menu.
You can purchase Play Money chips from the main desktop lobby by clicking ‘Tools’ > ‘Buy Play Money Chips’, or by tapping the ‘Buy Play Chips’ button in the mobile app. We recommend the $9.99 package of 2M chips, but prices start from just $1.99. See here for more on how to buy chips.
If you enjoy the huge prize pools of the Sunday Billion, then look out for the High Roller tourneys. They take place every two hours, with buy-ins from 10M to 50M chips.
