What's it Like to Win $1 Million in Five Minutes?

What does it feel like to win $1 million playing poker?

Most of us will never know. Many of us will be lucky to hit a five-figure score.

A few others reading this may some day hit a six-figure score but a seven figure?

Never is the word that will come to most of our minds.

Poland's 'bladsonpoker' probably thought the same thing entering Tuesday.

Then it happened, he and two others hit the $1.2 million prize pool in the $5 limited edition Spin & Go's running on PokerStars.

In less than 5 minutes, two players went home with "only $100,000" while 'bladsonpoker' took away $1 milliion.

I would have been happy with the $100k, much less $1 million.

How sick it that though? $1 million in five minutes. That's $3333.33 a second.

While PokerStars has taken a lot of flack for these Spin & Go's for basically their lottery style of play, you can't fault anyone that wants to take a shot at turning $5 into $1 million.

I'd do it if PokerStars were legal in the United States.

Check out the video below and watch 'bladsonpoker' win more money in poker than most of us will ever hope to win without a backer.
