Wednesday May 13,2015 : SIX MORE ONLINE POKER MILLIONAIRES AT POKERSTARS
Pokerstars keeps dishing out the dosh.
Six more millionaire winners have been created in the past week by playing online at PokerStars.com, the company blog has revealed.
On Sunday, two players, including a small-stakes player from Bulgaria, earned $1 million each after besting competitors in free-to-enter online tournaments. They won their way to the ‘Millionaire Finals’ for free through challenges and all-in shootout tournaments that were set up to celebrate the ‘PokerStars Makes Millionaires’ campaign.

The ‘Millionaires’ campaign promised to award at least $1 million to a minimum of five players during the two-month promotion. Already eight players have taken in $1 million, with four awarded in online tournaments and four in live tournaments.
The promotion concludes at the end of the Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP), which is a festival of online tournaments, including one in which a $1 million top prize is guaranteed.
The latest $1 million winners were ‘JUANYI828’ from Taiwan and ‘citoject’ from Bulgaria, who hit the seven-figure wins after two hard-fought six-handed Millionaire Final tournaments that took place at Pokerstars and were watched by thousands.
A further $150,000 was shared out among the other five players in each tournament.
Meanwhile, in the live arena, the PokerStars and Monte-Carlo Casino European Poker Tour Grand Final saw four players become millionaire winners in three separate poker tournaments – the Euro 100,000 Super High Roller, Euro 25,000 High Roller and Euro 10,000 Main Event.
Eight players have now become millionaires through the PokerStars Makes Millionaires promotion (two $1 million Spin & Go’s, two Millionaire Finals and four EPT winners) with at least one more to come in the Spring Championship of Online Poker Main Event High tournament on May 24.
