Home / How to use Power Path to play the Sunday Million

Did you know you can play the Sunday Million through Power Path? Here’s how…

You might think that Power Path – PokerStars’ exciting new qualification route designed to help casual players get into big events – is all about live tournament packages.

That’s understandable. With multiple Gold Passes worth $10,300 or Silver Passes worth $2,500 up for grabs daily, it’s never been easier for recreational players to win their way into prestigious live events – from the European Poker Tour (EPT) to popular regional tours.

But actually, Power Path also has a big focus on online poker. 

Sure, Pass winners have the option to turn their prize purse into online buy-ins, but that’s not what we’re referring to here.

The more readily-available Bronze Pass is a $109 online tournament ticket that winners can use to enter the infamous Sunday Million, PokerStars’ flagship online event. Even after more than 17 years, the weekly tournament with a million-dollar guarantee continues to produce enormous first-place prizes, despite lowerings its buy-in from $215 to $109, and becoming a Progressive Knockout event.

But even if you haven’t won a Bronze Pass, you can still use Power Path to play the Sunday Million.

We’ll get to how in a moment.


If there’s one tournament that every poker player loves to play and hates to miss, it’s the Milly.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re a high-stakes professional used to playing for $1 million first-place prizes, or a weekend warrior who likes to take a shot on a Sunday afternoon. The Sunday Million is the weekly online title that everyone wants on their resume.

Some players have even won it more than once. Russian crusher Artem “veeea” Vezhenkov remains the only player to have won the Milly three times, while at least 20 players can call themselves two-time Sunday Million champions.

You can see the full list of those multiple champs on our Sunday Million timeline.

Vanessa Kade won the largest prize ever awarded in the Sunday Million

As for the largest Sunday Million prize, that went to Vanessa “Niffler” Kade back in March 2021 when she won a special Anniversary edition of the Milly for a staggering $1,514,920.

Not hard to see why she called it the best day of her life.

So, what would you get for winning the Milly?

Well, tens (if not hundreds) of thousands of dollars, for a start.

You’ll get the Sunday Million winner badge on your PokerStars avatar.

And you’ll forever be able to wow your peers by saying you won the Sunday Million. That’s bragging rights for life. 

Not bad, eh?


Right, back to the how.

Power Path players can now gain entry to the Milly not only by winning a Bronze Pass worth $109 but simply by winning a Step 4 Power Path ticket.

So if you don’t fancy trying to go for a big Pass and instead would rather hop into the Sunday Million instead, now you can.

Or perhaps you’re grinding the $11 buy-in Step 3 a ton and you’ve collected a healthy yield of Step 4 tickets. If that’s the case, you can now use them to play the Milly every week!


If you’ve never played it before, we’ve got you covered.

We’ve put together the ultimate first-timer’s guide to playing the Sunday Million.

It’s for anyone who wants to play the Sunday Million for the first time, but for whatever reason has yet to take that step.

The guide covers how to win a seat (assuming you haven’t already picked up a Bronze Pass or Step 4 ticket!), how to make yourself bully-proof when playing tough opposition, how to change your luck when the tournament isn’t going to plan, how to make the money, and how to beat the best.

So if your first Sunday Million is coming up, take a moment to bookmark the guide and give it a read whenever you have a few minutes.

Best of luck to everyone who wins their way into the Milly using Power Path!
