POKERSTARS MADE A MILLIONAIRE

By: PSO Professor @ 09:14 (EDT) / 118 / Comment ( 4 )

The first millionaire of the ‘PokerStars Makes Millionaires’ promotion has been made, with Russian player ‘CccpVodka’ winning $1,000,000 after just 355 seconds of poker play on PokerStars, an Amaya Inc. (TSX: AYA) company.

The $5 Spin & Go tournament started at 12.29 AM (April 23) Moscow time, and concluded at 12.35 AM, making it a very happy night for the new Russian millionaire.

The runner up was ‘partalios’ from Greece, who won $100,000. The third-place player was ‘shooLarr’ from Russia, who also won $100,000.

The first-ever $1 million Spin & Go was also won by a Russian player – ‘sss66666’ on 12 January, although ‘sss66666’ took a comparatively lengthy 13 minutes and 26 seconds to win his $1 million.

The almost-instant millionaire is the first millionaire of the ‘PokerStars Makes Millionaires’ promotion which started on March 27 and is running now. Other parts of the promotion that are still running include:

-$1 Million Spin & Go: Players can turn $5 into $1,000,000 in just minutes with special $1 Million Spin & Go’s. See http://psta.rs/1FQWw89 for more info.
