PokerStars Spin & Go Tournaments Find Two New Millionaires

PokerStars $1M Spin & Gos
Share this

The Czech Republic’s "Tornádo111" and Canada’s "anushan_2323" set to work in a PokerStars $5 buy-in Spin & Go Sit N Go and found a $1 million prize waiting for them when each topped their three-player field over the weekend.

A week ago Russia’s "sss66666" made his mark in poker history by hitting the jackpot when he won the very first $1 million prize on Monday, January 12th.

Tornádo111 was the first of the two weekend winners to hit the life-changing jackpot when he took out "RusGreen" and "newann" to claim his $1,000,000 first place prize. Watch it unfold:

Although RusGreen and newann may have missed the chance to pad their pockets with one million dollars, they each took home a $100,000 consolation prize. That should make for a great bad beat story as the years go by.

Just after PokerStars finished celebrating the second millionaire Spin & Go jackpot, the sound of a third one started as anushan_2323's stepped up to the plate to keep the celebration going.

anushan_2323 had to battle it out with "ChipsMongot" and "jukebox72" to claim his online poker $1,000,000 victory! "ChipsMongot" received $100,000 for his second-place finish and "jukebox72" took home $100,000 for his third-place finish.

The $5 buy-in $1 Million Spin & Go tournaments originally debuted during the December Festival as PokerStars hoped to find some lucky new millionaires during the Christmas season. The Spin & Go tournaments were carried over into January as the hunt for millionaires continued.

The Spin & Gos are a Hyper-Turbo 3-Max Sit N Go where the jackpot is determined by a random generator before the action begins. The jackpot is usually double the tournament’s entry fee but the prize pools can jump up to 1,200 times the buy-in.

Three out of 10 million $5 Spin & Gos were set to pay the $1 million prize pool. Even though sss66666, Tornádo111 and anushan_2323 have managed the Cinderella story of Sit N Gos, there's still hope for more to come since the promotion is running to the end of January.
