$1,000,000 Win on PokerStars Spin & Go

By: royalraise85 @ 06:45 (EST) / 1264 / Comment ( 6 )

PokerStars player ‘sss66666’ has just become a near-instant millionaire after he was victorious in the first-ever $1 million Spin & Go. The tournament lasted 13 minutes and 26 seconds, meaning the Russian earned $12,406.95 per second. Runner up ‘geldduvel’ from Belgium and third place finisher, ‘Nonko999’ from Bulgaria, both received $100,000 for their respective finishes.

The story draws comparison to the 2012 World Champion of Online Poker, Marat ‘maratik’ Sharafutdinov, who also hails from Russia. He turned 40 Frequent Player Points into over $1 million by winning the WCOOP Main Event, making the saying "I wont million" into a poker world meme. His compatriot has now also won a million dollars from a tiny buy-in.

The special $5 buy-in, $1 Million Spin & Go promotion commenced as part of the PokerStars December Festival promotion, and is now running throughout the month of January only at PokerStars.
