PokerGO’s No Gamble, No Future Announces Stacked Line-up

Ryan Feldman Announces Hustler Casino Live’s Biggest Game Yet
A few days after PokerGO’s announcement of their Rich Get Richer: $1 Million Buy-In Cash Game, Hustler Casino Live executive producer and owner Ryan Feldman shared some exciting news of his own. Taking part in the Hustler Casino Live Pre-Game Show with Max Pain Monday game-runner DGAF, Feldman announced Hustler’s plan to host their own $1,000,000 cash game live stream titled The Million Dollar Game.
Scheduled to take place in May, Feldman fielded questions on not only the structure of the game, but who may be making an appearance in one of the biggest cash games in poker history.
Hustler Casino Live Continues To Make Poker History
In May of 2022, Hustler Casino welcomed not only some of poker’s best in Phil Hellmuth, Tom Dwan, and Phil Ivey, but they also gave viewers the opportunity to watch content creators like Ludwig, Ninja, and MrBeast mix-it-up with poker legends. Garnering thousands of viewers, many of whom were new to the game of poker, Hustler facilitated a historic poker game they hope to top with The Million Dollar Game.
Although The Million Dollar Game shares some similarities with PokerGO’s own million dollar cash game, Ryan Feldman made it clear Hustler’s variation would differ. While the No Gamble, No Future production will feature increasing blinds and $600,000 allocated to the biggest winner, HCL’s Million Dollar Game will remain a traditional cash game with blinds set at $500/$1,000.
With the close proximity of announcements and stark similarities between both HCL’s The Million Dollar Game and PokerGO’s Rich Get Richer, naturally questions of competition and a budding rivalry were asked. Feldman assured HCL fans there was no ill-will towards PokerGO, and voiced his support of their upcoming, high stakes game.
“I want to clarify, us [HCL] and PokerGO…it’s not a competition, it’s not a rivalry – we’re friends. We support them, they support us.”
Alan Keating? Garrett Adelstein? Who Will Play In The Million Dollar Game?

As soon as the announcement of The Million Dollar Game left Feldman’s lips, HCL fans immediately began theorizing who would make the lineup for the historic poker game. Citing high stakes players who had appeared on Hustler in the past for big buy-ins, some notable names immediately came to mind, one of which was fan-favorite Alan Keating.
“Keating is a superstar and we want him to be on every one of the biggest shows that we put together,” Feldman said. “And we are confident that we will have him in this game.”
Along with Alan Keating, Feldman hopes to include other established high stakes poker players like Eric Persson. Harkening back to the successful MrBeast stream, Feldman looks to include some big names outside of the poker space as well.
“We’re going to try for MrBeast, we are going to try for people of that elk. We are going to try for everyone.” Feldman said. “We want this to be very, very special. We want this to not only be the biggest game and the most special game in Hustler Casino Live history, we want this to be the most special game in poker history.”
With Hustler hosting what may be the biggest game in poker history, the allure of nosebleed stakes and being a part of poker history will surely inspire players of note to pursue a seat. Still currently on a poker playing hiatus, cash game legend Garrett Adelstein may be eyeing a historic return on The Million Dollar Game.
