PokerStars Crowns $1 Million Spin & Go Winners
The popular PokerStars Spin & Go promotion crowned its fifth millionaire on Tuesday as Poland's 'bladsonpoker' won the jackpot prize of $1 million while playing on his mobile phone.
Spin & Go tables are three-handed super turbo Sit & Go's with a random prize pool ranging from double your prize pool to 1,200 times the prize.
However, PokerStars has been running a "PokerStars Makes Millionaires" promotion for $5 Spin & Go's where the payout is $1.2 million in total or 240,000x the buy-in.
The epic confrontation was captured entirely on Jamie Staples' Twitch.tv channel. The three-handed table also featured 'hooomlesnurr' from Norway and 'ROliver CEO' from China.
Players from around the world watched as 'ROliver CEO' quickly fell in second. Later 'hoomlesnurr' fell in heads-up play. Second and third both received $100,000 consolation prizes for hitting the jackpot.
While there's no official record of such occurrences bladsonpoker''s win is certainly one of the largest mobile poker wins in history.
