For some time now PokerStars have been about more than just poker. Their casino and sportsbook products have been introduced since acquisition by Amaya Inc. and have immediately started receiving significant numbers of players.
For the purposes of their online casino, Amaya have created some exclusive games, among them the Millionaires Island online slot, a game with a massive progressive jackpot. The game has not been out a very long time and PokerStars have already awarded their first millionaire, a 26 year old student from Uruguay.
Five Millionaire Symbols Make One Millionaire Student
Thousands of online gamblers play online slots with progressive jackpots on a daily basis and most never come even close to winning the massive jackpots. Yet, every now and again, every progressive slot does make one person into a millionaire.
Uruguayan student who decided to remain anonymous and goes under the screenname of LuisCancelaU lived through one such day just recently as he played his favorite PokerStars game, the Millionaires Island. In order to win the progressive jackpot, the player had to stop a Millionaire symbol on each of the five reels. According to an interview made with him, he could hardly believe his luck when he saw the fifth symbol hit and instantly turn him into a millionaire.
The actual amount won by the young Uruguayan was $1,517,303.08 which is over half a million more than the starting point for the progressive jackpot. The player was as perplexed as his brother who he immediately ran to, giving him the great news of his amazing win.
PokerStars Casino Celebrate Making The Millionaire
As we can imagine, the people over at PokerStars were all too happy to pay out their first progressive jackpot winner and show that their online slots can be as lucrative as any played in other online casinos. The Millionaires Island jackpot slot was always meant to make such life changing moments and the fact this first jackpot went to as young Uruguayan student only makes things that much more amazing.
