On Monday, the wheels stopped on a $1.2 million prize pool for the first time in Spin & Go history on PokerStars! The three handed $5 buy-in tournament lasted less than 15 minutes and Russia's "sss66666" ended up getting the biggest slice of the prize pool, 1,000,000 US dollars!
The other two players received $100,000 each, so they probably weren't that disappointed with what they had won in [...] Read more » Russian Wins $1 million in $5 Spin & Go!

Why do it always have to be russians. Always when someone is winning something big you can bet that he is a russian. Also I am seeing so many russians at the tables. How many of them are playing Poker? 100 per cent?

Ok.. Let's ask ourselves. Does it matter the nationality of the winner of this first million spin and win winner? On the other hand, on the basis of probability, it could be argued that it was probably bound to be a Russian player....so let's rejoice that such a prize does exist and has been won!

Dam I wanted to be the first to say it. Typical that a Russian won it....although I am partly surprised it wasn't a German. Not surprised it wasn't a brit, lots play but few scores that we hear about..
geeze what a shock that a russian won it. Russians are nothing but dirty cheating donkeys. Joker stars pays all of them with dumb BS, just another typical bunch of crap from poker stars. I wish I knew the secret to how they cheat so much.
It's always too good to be true. I don't envy anything from these russian players, they are earning hard every goddamn cent they've gotten with masterful donking, superintelligent reading abilities, with a calling range so wide a whale could be pushed through it and a wonderful resistance to vodka, antifreeze and any alcohol related products. They are really Putin's little helpers by stripping down 'The Decadent West' from all of their money and resources by playing a game where everybody likes to loose. Perfect in every way.
That's quite the payout for 5 and fast as well only took 10 minutes i will give one of these 5 spin and go later tonight won a ticket via a free roll Sat and combine it with the daily challenge but i don't think another big one will be hit anytime soon GL

Posted by xgcsnippy: Poker stars is probably secretly funded by the Russian mafia!!
poker stars is probably not so secretly funded by us - people who put in the site more money than they take out. I think that gambling sites (and poker sites if like me you don't consider it as gambling because it's a skill game and not a luck game) are way too profitable to need to be secretly funded.
