“CccpVodka” Takes a Six Minute Spin & Go All the Way to $1,000,000

PokerStars Makes Millionaires
Share this

PokerStars and a $5 buy-in into the insanely exciting tournament format the world knows as a Spin & Go is all it took for Russian online poker player "CccpVodka" to become the latest millionaire. In just a little under six minutes, on April 22nd, "CccpVodka" was probably ordering up the shots of vodka and calling in the neighborhood to help him celebrate!

"CccpVodka" was seated along with Greece's "partalios" and fellow countryman "shooLarr" when they discovered the prize pool was a massive $1.2 million. Imagine the excitement racing through the virtual poker table as the tournament kicked off. Within 5 minutes and 59 seconds of hope, fast play, and crazy-wild insanity of what was at stake, a millionaire was made!!!

"Partalios" finished in second and "shooLarr" went out first — in third — with each taking home $100,000. That is one helluva a payday.

PokerStars has awarded the honor — and the cash — of being the first millionaire in the "PokerStars Makes Millionaires" to "CccpVodka" but there are 22 players in front of him that have won $1 million or more in the history of PokerStars' online poker tournaments.

Tyson "POTTERPOKER" Marks holds the record for the biggest win to date. Marks won the 2010 World Championship of Online Poker Main Event and took home $2,278,098.

Do the Russian's have an edge that they aren't sharing with the rest of us? Back in January Russia's "sss66666" was the first player to win $1 million in a Spin & Go on PokerStars. Although it took him a little over double the time to score the massive first-place prize, how do the Russians know how to find those $1,000,000 Spin & Gos?

PokerStars has plans to send five more players home with a million dollars jingling in their pockets in the PokerStars Makes Millionaires promotion by the end of May. This is going to happen in the $1 million Spin & Go tournaments, the Spring Championship of Online Poker Main Event (High) on May 24th, and the All-in Shootout Deposit Raffle running from May 2nd-22nd.

You don't want to miss a minute of the action — or the excitement — or the fun — or the opportunity to become a millionaire. Head for PokerStars today and get started!
