On Monday, the largest ever Spin & Go prize pool was paid out on PokerStars, with Russia's "sss66666" taking home $1,000,000 of the $1.2 million prize pool! According to Russian PokerStars Blog, sss66666 is a 33-year-old handyman who used to work long and hard in southern Russia to make ends meet.

He was celebrating like crazy in the livingroom when the wheels stopped at $1.2 million, screaming so loud that his family woke up in a panic. He was in a state of shock. "It was actually quite difficult. My heart was pounding and the adrenaline was rushing. I have never felt that way before," he told PokerStars Blog.

He eventually managed to calm down and came to his senses: "I pulled myself together, realising this was the opportunity of a lifetime. I knew I was guaranteed $100,000, and I would have been very happy with that."

A million dollars is a lot of a money, especially for someone who used to struggle to to pay the bills and put food on the table. It seems like the richest Spin & Go to date couldn't have gotten a better winner than sss66666. "I shall make sure the family has no financial problems, and I shall also make a donation to charity for children who need expensive treatment," he said.

Love it glad somebody who is struggling to make ends meets managed to get the highest 1.2m spin and go to date, happy for him as he can take care of his family better, i am sure there was days when he struggle to put food on the table or they cannot afford all the festivities and always have to do some sacrifice here and there. Feels his pain and i work too and do not manage to scrap enough, so knows how a "small" amount of cash can help!

...I voted for the pigs that fly thingy because if you have ever been to a Pink Floyd concert ripped on a few hits of orange double barrel or orange sunshine, will CERTAINLY know for sure that pigs can fly as evidenced on this cover of Pink Floyd Animals...(pic below) Big Smile


Proof that pigs can fly...:

That is very very nice for the man if it's true,it just seems like a made up story to me then again maybe it's just me getting cynical (or jealous Smile ) well done to the bloke if it is true and i hope he spends it wisely.
 klash2317/01/2015 13:09:34 GMT
It is a good story for Pokerstars and it has been said this player mainly plays freerolls but it is just like the lottery where anyone who buys a ticket will have a chance to become a millionaire.
Hopefully it is true and it will be good to follow this guy and see if he spends his money on playing more poker. Smile

Handyman, Candyman, Dandyman. Is there anything russians cannot do?
You see from freerollers to 5 bucks a pop spank&go - that is some proper bankrollmanagement from a bot, and fabricating a fairytale story in no time is like putting cherry on top of the cake. Amaya never dissapoints me when it comes to bullsh1tt1ng, they are indeed the perfect craftmen 4 this.
At least they are good for something. Producing make-beliefs.
 bowie198420/01/2015 18:25:02 GMT
On second thought how about them other two other guys who were in this game with him? They must be so mad when they lost 900k!
Yeah the consolation prizes were good for anyone who ended up in the 2nd or 3rd place, but gaining 100k while loosing another 900k just with finishing 2nd would make me mad as hell.
Of course I saw their last hand, so putting your chance to the rest of da money at risk with a hand like that is not really a thing somebody would do with a clear head - they obviously played in total ecstasy, but still.

It's three winners by now. Thats craxzy. It should be one winner every 10 million games . Either it's a very popular game and there have been more than 30 million games by now (of 5$ sng's) or stars have been extremely unlucky to get hit three times or it's all a part of the promotion and they don't actually pay these winnings.
 marqis21/01/2015 09:56:55 GMT
Three winners... I bet they are looking at the code that generates the multiplier right now...
Who knows, maybe they've got a decimal place wrong, by a few positions...
 leno121/01/2015 14:14:57 GMT
Well, becoming a millionaire by playing one game of Poker and that even with a very low buy in. These are the Cinderella stories of the Poker world which everyone lover so much. But ask yourself to how many people something like that really happen - very few.
 xxxpokerxxx126/01/2015 18:46:45 GMT
just don't get it how can a well known multi- accountor would be allowed to win and claim,the million,this story is almost to good to be true,and we know what they say about things that are to good to be true
