Four new millionaires are celebrating football-fuelled victories at PokerStars, PokerStars Casino, and Full Tilt this week having each secured million-dollar pay outs totalling more than $5.4 million, the company announced in a press release Friday.
“With four millionaires created since the World Cup started, we clearly have the answer to half-time entertainment,” said Christopher Coyne, chief marketing officer of Stars Interactive Group.
“Throughout PokerStars, BetStars, Full Tilt and PokerStars Casino, there’s an array of football-themed promotions and major value-added action.”
‘[AG]_Rocky’ became the first player to win $1 million on a $5 buy-in Spin & Goal at PokerStars. Inspired by this summer’s football, Spin & Goal tournaments are special edition Spin & Go games give players the chance to win up to $1 million, but also free BetStars bets and football holiday packages.
The player had been playing in two MTTs and decided to wrap up his session with a quick go on Spin & Goal, resulting in a million-dollar pay day. ‘Joseph1457’ picked up $100,000 for finishing in second place.
Matchday Millions, a football themed, in-house developed proprietary slot game with a $1 million minimum guaranteed jackpot, hit for the first time last week. ‘BRAER_71RUS’ won $1,425,373.02 at Full Tilt, making this the first million-dollar casino jackpot to hit at the site.
The slot shares a prize pool with Stars Mega Spin and Millionaires Island, which both had million-dollar jackpots go off during the same week at PokerStars Casino.
Player ‘lohengramm’ got an “unexpected surprise” worth $1,679,871.30 when Stars Mega Spin hit the jackpot. ‘BETHGE68’ from Germany became the fourth millionaire made in 10 days with a windfall of $1,357,835.04 from PokerStars Casino’s Millionaires Island.
