PokerStars Spin & Go's are 3 person sit and go style, winner take all tournaments that have a prizepool randomly determined prior to the start of the match.
On Monday January 12, 2015, "sss66666", a 33 year old handyman from Russia made history by winning the first ever Spin & Go million dollar prize when he outlasted his two opponents. Don't feel too bad for the two runners-up though, as they each pocket a cool 100K, as a consolation prize.
Then just days later on Saturday January 17, "Tornádo111" of the Czech Republic would parlay his $5 Spin & Go investment into his own million dollar payday.
That, however, would not be the end of the windfall for online players at PokerStars, as on the very next day "anushan_2323" from Canada would become the third PokerStars Spin & Go million dollar prize winner in less than a week. In all, PokerStars would payout 3.6 million dollars to these nine lucky players.
Originally set to be one of PokerStars December Festival promotions, the $5 buy in, PokerStars $1 Million Spin & Go tournaments continue to run daily, and have been extended until the end of January.
