This season, celebrate the 2022 Qixi Festival with the popular Zodiac Festival on Natural8. With some of the biggest prizes in Asia, special Mystery Bounty events, and ¥35,000,000 ($5 Million) in guarantees across all events, the Zodiac Festival is something no serious poker player should miss!
Starting on July 31, the series runs until August 14, and the two-week special festival has something for every budget with buy-ins ranging from ¥50 to ¥5,500. Moreover, the series happens to be an ideal one for players belonging to the Asia time zone.
Fans of mystery bounty tournaments will be happy to know that thirty-six Mystery Bounty tournaments will run during the Zodiac Festival.
