The event will begin airing in late July on the NBC Sports Network every Wednesday for three nights from the 29th. The show will begin at 9pm EST and will see who takes down the $1 million prize. The event is a winner-take-all format and will see major game play taking place for a chance to win the massive prize.

During the tournament, the pros will take on each other until one remains. The same can be said for the celebrities. The winner of each section will then take on each other in a best of three heads up showdown. The CEO of Poker Central, Clint Stinchcomb, stated that the Hollywood celebrities are about to face off in the hardest game of their life for more than they have ever played for before against the top players in the industry.

Once the event is completed, there will be a second high roller tournament taking place. The Aria will be hosting the Super High Roller Bowl $500,000 event which will take place from the 2nd to the 4th of July. The first place prize for this event is quite massive at $8.25 million.
