Get Ready for the 2012 Aussie Millions Poker Tournament at Crown Casino, Melbourne.

Played out in the glittering surroundings of Melbourne’s Crown Casino, the Aussie Millions is a tournament worthy of the game’s growing status here in Australia.

The international tournament last year saw a cool AU$2million in prize money taken by David Gorr, 68-year old grandfather and Melbourne local. As well as all that money, he took away with him the Aussie Millions diamond-encrusted winners bracelet, and we’re pretty sure that if it’s not always on his wrist, then he keeps it pretty safe.

David’s win set us all dreaming a little of what it might be like to take away the biggest prize in Australian Poker, and it hasn’t done Poker’s popularity here in Australia any harm at all.

There have been plenty of chances to practise this past year. In fact, it’s a great time to be an online poker player in Australia too.

Big personalities like Joe Hachem and Shane Warne have put the game on our TV screens and kept a buzz going around the circuit. We’ve always liked the pokies here in Australia, but now it seems we might be graduating to the real thing in larger and larger numbers, too.

It isn’t just our local that has started running a poker evening every week – they’re springing up all around the country, and if our local is anything to go by, they are already popular and getting more so.

It’s a great mix of new players and veterans, and an atmosphere that mixes the relaxed feel of a night out with a few mates with the excitement of some pretty hard-fought hands of poker.

There are Poker Tournaments right across the country for players to move on to when they’ve made their mark on the local scene. The Australia New Zealand Poker Tour will be in its fourth year in 2012: it’s a tournament that has seen a really high standard of play, and one that is developing some great inter-state rivalries as it goes.

The Australian Poker League is free-to-play and currently has around 600,000 members and counting. Organisations like Deaf Poker Australia are working hard to bring the game to anyone and everyone who wants to give it a try.

Australia is blessed with some genuinely world-class casinos, too, and not just the host of January’s Aussie Millions tournament, the incredible Crown Casino Complex in Melbourne. Star City, The Reef Casino and Jupiters Casino are all internationally-regarded top-flight gaming destinations that will provide you with luxury accommodation, entertainment, bars and clubs as well as a seat at a great poker table.

For poker players, Australia might just be becoming the promised land...
