THE STARS GROUP LAUNCHES MILLION DOLLAR ‘STARS MEGA SPIN’ ON POKERSTARS CASINO
TORONTO, CANADA – November 10, 2017 – The Stars Group Inc. today announced the launch of Stars Mega Spin, its proprietary space-themed progressive jackpot slot game exclusive to the PokerStars Casino brand that guarantees a minimum $1 million jackpot.
Stars Mega Spin is the latest innovation from The Stars Group and the second million-dollar progressive jackpot created by its in-house game development team. The slot shares a linked Mega Jackpot with Millionaires Island, which launched exclusively on PokerStars Casino at the beginning of the year and has since delivered five million-dollar winners.
Stars Mega Spin rolled out this week in the United Kingdom and shared liquidity markets where PokerStars Casino is offered, and is available to play on desktop, web and mobile in those jurisdictions with stakes ranging from $0.50 to $50. Millionaires Island also offers a €1 million jackpot exclusively on PokerStars Casino in Italy.
“Since its launch almost three years ago, PokerStars Casino has quickly grown its range of table games and slots, but we are particularly proud to offer our second in-house progressive million-dollar jackpot slots game to our customers,” said Bo Wänghammar, Managing Director of PokerStars Casino. “We are the only online casino operator that is currently providing exclusive million dollar progressive jackpots using only its own customers.”
