Four million-dollar wins include firsts for Spin & Goal, Matchday Millions and Full Tilt

ONCHAN, Isle of Man – June 29, 2018 – 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.

“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 fun, promotions and major value-added action. Unlike those on the pitch, our customers didn’t even have to break a sweat to earn big. We’d like to see those four viewing parties now!”


‘[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 that not only give players the chance to win up to $1 million, but also free BetStars bets and dream football holiday packages. The fast-paced game of poker is perfectly sized for half-time or on a break from a multi-table tournament (MTT).

‘Joseph1457’ picked up an enormous $100,000 for finishing in second place. PokerStars Ambassador Ben Spragg caught the battle for the seven-figure prize and the moment ‘[AG]_Rocky’ scored big live on Twitch. 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. Head to the PokerStars Blog for more information about the win.


Matchday Millions, a football themed, in-house developed proprietary slot game with a $1 million minimum guaranteed jackpot, hit for the very 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.
