ONCHAN, Isle of Man – January 11, 2018 – Nine millionaires were created in 2017 at PokerStars Casino, a record for one of the world’s fastest growing online casinos.

“PokerStars Casino grew from strength to strength in 2017,” said Bo Wänghammar, Managing Director of PokerStars Casino. “The launch of two exclusive, in-house developed $1 million guaranteed jackpot slots games in one year alongside the launch of over 150 new games has created what we believe to be a very strong offering and a truly unique online gaming experience for our customers.”


Three million-dollar jackpots were won in December, starting with ‘beckskr’ on December 10 who struck the jackpot playing Arcade Bomb to head into the holiday season $1.8 million richer. Describing the win, ‘beckskr’ said “It just felt like it was not real”.
