On Tuesday, Poland's ‘bladsonpoker' became the second Spin & Go millionaire since the PokerStars Makes Millionaires promotion began (you can read about the first winner here).
According to Pokerstars Blog, bladsonpoker logged on to his PokerStars Mobile app to play a $4.40 tournament and decided to enter some Spin & Go's.
The tournament kicked off at 7.39pm in Poland, and 29 hands later, he had boosted his bankroll with $1 million! Funnily enough, he continued playing the $4.40 tourney after winning a million bucks. He busted out of that tournament 1,5 hour later. Perhaps he allowed himself to celebrate a bit after that!
You're in luck if you want to see how bladsonpoker won the million, as it occurred while Jamie Staples live-streamed his own game on Twitch.
Thats what I call a payday... Nice hourly earnings , really awesome indeed. I don´t know if I would be able to play such a game when the spin stops at the price money of $ 1 million without getting a heart attack. But I guess I will never find out
That is now two millionaires in just a couple of weeks,it would be pretty damn amazing to get a pop up saying you are now a millionaire.Your whole completely changed in a matter of minutes. I wonder if he actually tried to win the tournament he was playing or if his mind was just a mess trying to comprehend his new situation.
Congratulations for the guy. This is a huge promotion by pokerstars not only for call new players to the spin&go, but also to the poker or their software. For this two guys is a huge life change, but for get hands on the money, becaue is a huge amount, they maybe will do a small cashouts for the next months, but in that next months work or do a jog beside poker or nothing maybe is in their minds. For the guy that is making a show on the internet is was the timming.
same thing happend when pokerstars had this promotion before 2 one million Pots coming close to each other .. just a week between them i wonder if there is a meaning behind this
anyway he played great .. i liked the slow play when he turned the flush .. it was the hand that got him the million it is a life changing amount . i think it was hard for him to believe .. thats why he was calm
....... And we have another winner!!!!!!!!! Isn't it fantastic how ordinary people can win such huge amounts of money for such a small investment in such a short period of time. Can you imagine the icon flashing up that your table was playing for a million? That would be enough in itself, but then to win...WOW!
You have to be a very lucky guy just to spin the 1million since there are 3 X 1 millions given by 10millions entrants. Then after you have to beat the 2 other players yes he deserve a lot of congratulations. Now who is making the more money on this 10 millions X $5.000= 50 millions and pokerstars is keeping 7% rake which is 3.5 millions. Its a very good promo for both winners players and pokerstars.
