PokerStars Casino’s Millionaires Island slot Pays Progressive


26-year-old Uruguayan university student converts $1 into $1.5 million with PokerStars

PokerStars Casino’s Millionaires Island slot has paid out its first progressive jackpot since its launch late last year.

The $1 million guaranteed progressive jackpot paid out $1.5 million to a university student from Uruguay on a $1 bet.

‘LuisCancelaU’ had been playing the slot for three minutes before he hit the big one.

"I ran to my brother who was the only one in the house. I started shouting and shaking him and he was looking at me completely perplexed. I showed him my account so he would believe me. We hugged and cried, not because of the money but because we now would be able to give something back to our parents who have fought so hard to give us anything we needed."
