Ubisoft Australia has announced that the Six Masters 2019 is back and comes with the largest ANZ prize pool for Rainbow Six Siege in history. A whopping $50,000 AUD is on the line which is double the prize pool of the 2018 competition. It’s also double the prize pool of the Six Oceanic Cup held in March.
With such a large prize pool, the split of the money means that the first place team will walk away with almost as much cash as the entire prize pool for previous events.
The split is as follows;
- 1st Place – $20,000
- 2nd Place – $10,000
- 3rd–4th Place – $4,000 each
- 5th-8th Place – $2,000 each
- 9th-10th Place – $1,500 each
- 11th-12th Place – $500 each
