A key component to enabling the record-setting prize giveaway is the introduction of a unique online tournament model developed by Virgin Gaming called Series Tournaments.

The flexibility of this format frees players from the rigorous time commitment of traditional bracketed tournament play, and allows tournaments to start and finish sooner, and more often.
