ONCHAN, Isle of Man – June 2, 2016 – Poker players have another opportunity to win up to $1 million this June and July, by playing special Spin & Go tournaments featuring a buy-in of just $5 online at PokerStars, an Amaya Inc. (Nasdaq: AYA; TSX: AYA) brand.

Looking for a tenth player to turn $5 into $1 million, this is the fourth time that PokerStars has run a special $1 million Spin & Go promotional period featuring $5 buy-ins. Other players have won $1 million in $100 buy-in games, with five new millionaires created since they began.

“I love these quick and fun games,” said Team PokerStars Pro Online member, Felix ‘xflixx’ Schneiders. “I can fire up a set of Spin & Go tournaments at any time of the day, wherever I am, and have a chance to win big. Streaming them on Twitch is also fun as the excitement of not knowing what prize you’re going to play brings extra drama. Plus they’ve helped to improve my short-stack, three-handed and heads-up play.”

Both Schneiders and new Team Pro Online member Kevin ‘GarlicXToast’ Martin have previously managed to stream two $1m Spin & Go’s as they occurred. Watch them here:

The $5 Spin & Go’s, featuring a top prize of $1 million, are only available during the special promotional period, but $100 Spin & Go’s that offer the chance to win a top prize of $1 million, continue to be available on an ongoing basis.
