Pokerstars was, for a long time, a site that only offered the game that it takes is name from. However, in January 2015 they started to introduce casino games.
The first Pokerstars Casino advert was aired in November 2016 and in 2017 the site made no less than nine millionaires.
On Tuesday 13th February 2018 another millionaire was added to the growing list of players joining the millionaires club thanks to Pokerstars Casino but it wasn’t poker the player was playing.
The lucky player triggered the Jackpot King Bonus by landing all five symbols on the middle row. He then managed to roll in 15+ crowns to activate the Wheel King.
As the wheel span it landed on Jackpot King winning the player an impressive €1,608,448.03 (approximately £1.4 million).
See the win happen below:
The winning player is from Norway and more often than not, is found at the poker tables. It was the first win of the Jackpot King series at Pokerstars Casino, and one that the now millionaire is understandably over the moon about.
Speaking about the jackpot win, the lucky winner has expressed his plans to play live at future Pokerstars Live events and to take the family on a summer holiday.
He went on to explain how he thought his win was an error:
When the wheel stopped and revealed the jackpot, I thought that the game had frozen. The congratulations popped up on the screen and then the money showed on my balance, I couldn’t catch my breath! I was so shocked but so happy.
The Managing Director of Blueprint Gaming, Matt Cole, said:
What an amazing start to the year! Congratulations to the winner. Our Jackpot King series continues to offer highly immersive games and we have plans to add even more exciting titles throughout this year.
