- PokerStars Casino creates three new millionaires during past month, awarding $4.2 million in total
- Millionaire’s Island slot seems to be favored by university students
Amaya-owned PokerStars may be best-known as the world’s biggest online poker platform, but things have been going strong in their newly added casino department as well.
During the past month, PokerStars Casino has created three fresh millionaires who hit progressive jackpots in the total amount in excess of $4.2 million.
Millionaires Island living up to its name
Millionaires Island is PokerStars own progressive jackpot slot, and it seems to be very inclined toward students. Two players who pocketed the seven-figure Millionaires Island jackpot during the past thirty days were both university students who had their lives take a turn for the spectacular after just a few lucky spins.
A player from Finland using alias ‘pkr_rager’ took home $1.4 million and was left not believing his eyes when the huge number popped out on his screen. This was only the second time the economics student logged onto his PokerStars Casino account, and when he decided to try a few spins on Millionaires Island, winning life-changing money wasn’t even on his mind.
After he managed to gather his thoughts a bit, ‘pkr_rager’ compared the feeling to that of a kid on a Christmas morning: exciting, but surreal at the same time.
Although a massive amount, the jackpot won by the Finnish player was second-best, as another student from Uruguay won $1.5 million just a few weeks before. The 26-year old is also primarily a poker player but decided to try his luck with Millionaires Island, and it took him only seventeen spins to land the huge jackpot. Much like his fellow player from Finland, ‘LuisCancelaU’ couldn’t believe his luck at first, and it took him a while to realize he wasn’t dreaming.
Magic Genie making wishes come true
The third massive win at PokerStars Casino went to Russia. A player going under ‘Denis N777’ went for Playtech’s Genie Jackpots slot and ended up landing three magic lamps and picked the one that took him to the jackpot round. Moments later, he was almost $1.4 million richer.
Apart from these seven-figure wins, there were quite a few other big winners at PokerStars Casino who took home very decent six-figure amounts.
As we move forward, there is no doubt we’ll hear many more stories about huge wins by online poker players who decided to try something else for a change. After all, it’s the allure of huge jackpots that brings many players to a casino in the first place.
