As a part of the PokerStars Makes Millionaires promotion, the special $5 buy-in $1 Million Spin & Go's were recently introduced again. On Thursday, in the early hours of the morning, the first millionaire of this amazing promotion was crowned.

i testify that it had a go at a few of those $1 millions spin and go's and saw that million spinning in front of my eyes, but had to settle for no more than $10 prize-pool, which was not what i was hoping for- therefore i donated my cash to those more in need at the tables.

Another nice win...i find it strange when u look up his stats it doesn't have any evidence of winning this game like the others didnt. I dont know if its because i dont pay for sharkscope? But it shows all the other spin and goes he won and lost so u would think this would be right there. Anyways congrats to the winner and also the second and third places with there kool 100k
I still can't believe that Amaya creates these russian players out of thin air, just to show off how generous they become. Would prefer though if they split this money into 10 or 20 small packets to be winnable every actual month, rather than surprise somebody with a million.

Well done to this player,you pay your buy in hoping to get lucky and get a good amount to play for but you don't really expect the million prize so it must be one hell of a buzz to get the million and then go on to win it.The best thing about this is that the other 2 players got 100k as that would be terrible to play for a million and win nothing if you lose!

Its a nice story and call to many players go play that kind of game, but for what i see is the second or 3 russian player that win such amount of money in the spin & go of 5 dollars, right?
Yes all will say that this is rigged, no is not probably the russian comunity of poker they are trying to improve skills on spin & go tournaments, to tell us in the future some strategie, when they are win and win many times to us.
But beside that is a good thing to see someone get a change life.

Congratulations to everyone at that table. I have played a few $3 and $1 because my bankroll didn't let me go on higher flights, but i already consider PS let me try to win some considerable amounts for such low buy-ins with only two opponents. This was a very nice promo they created! We just have to wait until we see those zeros stoping by...
Posted by Theapple: how come its always some russian guy winning these jackpot sng's :o
They have many famous chess players and mathematicians, so they being good in a cardgame which requires sort of the same skillset is a real possibility - besides PS probably promoed the living sh1t out there from the first russian guy who won million on these spin and go's.
