The Spin & Go Anniversary celebration at PokerStars doled out another $1,000,000 over the weekend, marking the 12th time that the hyper-turbo game made a new millionaire since it was launched almost 14 months ago.

‘Koovoon’ from Canada outlasted two Russian players to win the $1 million prize, and did so in a rapid nine minutes. It was one of the quickest Million Dollar Spin & Go games ever.

After buying in for $100, ‘AndyG1810’ and ‘Play2win$1kk’ watched along with ‘Koovoon’ as the prize pool spun to $1,200,000. The two Russians had to settle for $100,000 each, as they were no match for ‘Koovoon’ almost from the outset.

The Canadian doubled up on the seventh hand of the lottery-style SitNGo when his pocket jacks held up. ‘Play2win$1kk’ was the first player eliminated and his fellow countryman hit the rail not long after, as the entire contest was a mere 39 hands in duration.

Spin & Go Millionaire Drought

PokerStars announced its Spin & Go Anniversary celebration in late October and quickly made six millionaires in the span of about one week. The winners came from all over the world from countries such as Brazil, England, Estonia, Germany and Australia.

That followed five previous millionaire winners since launch up until the anniversary promotion. There was a lull in the prize pool spinning to $1,200,000 for all of November until last Saturday morning. But that all changed when ‘Koovoon’ and his opponents paid their $100 entry fee.

Promo Runs Until December

There is still time for another Spin & Go millionaire to be crowned during the current anniversary celebration. The promotion will run through the end of November.

You don’t have to buy-in for $100 as the most recent millionaire did. Four previous $1 million Spin & Go winners during the promo entered at the $5 buy-in level. And the next winner could come from a $0.50 buy-in Spin & Go!

Spin & Go 1-Year Anniversary First Deposit Offer

There are just a handful of days left to take advantage of a special Spin & Go Anniversary first-time deposit bonus offer. A deposit of at least $20 (€18/£13/CAD $26) will reward you with anywhere from 10 to 50 Spin & Go tickets at the $0.50 buy-in level!

In addition to that, within 36 hours PokerStars will put another $10 into your account along with a ticket to a 100K Privilege Freeroll. Don’t forget to use the bonus code ‘SPIN1’ for this special Spin & Go Anniversary deposit bonus that’s available for first-time depositors.

Remember, the deposit bonus promotion expires on November 30, as does the Spin & Go Anniversary celebration. It’s your last shot at becoming the next Spin & Go millionaire for as little as $20!

After December 1, any unused $0.50 Spin & Go tickets can be exchanged for comparable value at other Spin & Go buy-in levels.
