First PokerStars $1 Million Spin & Go Won by Russian Player "sss66666"

PokerStars $1M Spin & Gos
Share this

Those tasty little mega-opportunity Spin & Gos at PokerStars just sent Russian player "sss66666" on his way to millionaire status — and it only took 13 minutes and 26 seconds! Picture it! "sss66666" made $12,406.95 per second as PokerStars dealt out its first-ever $1 Million Spin & Go.

The $1 Million Spin & Gos debuted as part of PokerStars December Festival. With the popularity of the tournament, which features a $5 buy-in, PokerStars extended the tournament to the whole month of January. If you aren't familiar with Spin & Go tournaments, they are a hyper-turbo 3-max tournament, that allows players the chance to play for a jackpot that is determined by a random generator just before the action starts.

The random generator normally doubles the buy-in of the tournament but the possibility of the prize pool jumping up to 1,200 times the buy-in fee is the big draw. Only three out of 10 million $5 Spin & Gos are set to generate the massive $1 million prize pool. Simply put, "sss66666" beat the odds when he overcame Belgium's "geldduvel" and Bulgaria's "Nonko999"! Second place ("geldduve") and third place ("Nonko999") each took home $100,000!!!

Are you ready to take a run at winning the second or third $5 Spin & Go that has a $1 million prize for the top player? If you are, you want to make sure you are sitting at a $1 Million Spin & Go for free on January 14 when PokerWorks is running a special $1 Million Spin & Go Special freeroll. The top 200 players in that tournament will receive a $5 Spin & Go ticket.

Through the end of January players in Italy, France and Spain can play "Spin & Go XL" on PokerStars. The Spin & Go XL offers PokerStars’ players the opportunity to take a seat in a €10 sit-and-go that could turn in to a €50,000 first prize, or €5,000 second- and third-place prizes.
