10th March, 2017 at 19:59:37
Over $4.2 million won from million dollar jackpots at PokerStars Casino in 27 days from end-January to end-February this year..
Pokerstars online casino has released a statement detailing the award of three million-dollar jackpots within 27 days - a total of $4.2 million - with the big wins occurring on the exclusive million dollar slot Millionaires Island, which was hit twice in the period, paying out over $2.9 million to two university students.
Two days following this, a Russian player boosted his bank balance when he was paid out over $1.3 million on Genie Jackpots.
The company's statement gives details of the wins:
Poker playing economics student 'pkr_rager' from Finland enhanced his cash flow by pocketing $1,410,720.04 from playing Millionaires Island. This was only the second time the 27-year-old, who is a frequent poker player at PokerStars, logged onto his casino account.
After double-checking his account to see if he really had just won over $1.4 million, he said: "I was nervous and my heart was pounding hard." He called his wife, mother and a friend to break the news. "Everyone was shocked, first they thought I was joking, then that it can't be real, that there is some mistake, and finally everyone told me to chill..." he recalled.
The newly made millionaire described how the excitement of his winning moment was like "when you wake up as a kid on Christmas morning. I was happy but same time feeling unreal, like I could be in a dream."
Another university student became a millionaire on the same game; 'LuisCancelaU' from Uruguay turned $1 into $1,517,303.08 in late January. You can read more about his winning story here: http://psta.rs/2mqdJBe
Just 29 days after Luis CancelaU's win, another Pokerstars player, 'Denis N777' from Russia saw $1,368,281.28 fly in on a magic carpet during the Genie Jackpots slot game. The Russian jackpot winner became the third winner for 2017 thus far.
He characterised the thrill of hitting such a large jackpot as "Incomprehensible" and "overwhelming".
Smaller jackpots have also turned up, for example the $282,050.02 hit by 'Prinzess666' from Germany playing the Super Diamond Deluxe slot on February 27.
She described the experience, saying:
"Suddenly every roll turned green, lights and music blasting, I asked myself what is going on and then I read "You have won a Jackpot. I read again: 28$, 280$, 2,800$, 28,000$, 280,000$. My heart rate jumped to 180 and I could only scream "Treasure, treaaaasure, treaaaaaaasure come here."
She explained to PokerStars that life had not gone well for her this year, and her family had been supportive; now she can show her appreciation for their kindness.
