It happened so quick! Spin & Go anniversary makes another millionaire

There's this wonderful scene in the film Casino in which a slot jackpot gets paid out three times in the matter of twenty minutes. Ace Rothstein, played to a tee by Robert De Niro, loses his mind when a cowboy slots manager doesn't call him to let him know.

"Well, it happened so quick!" the cowboy protests. "Three guys won. I didn't have a chance to call you!"

That's sort of how we feel here at the PokerStars Blog. Why? Because in the span of less than six days, we've been struggling to keep up with the million-dollar Spin & Go jackpots.

To wit: if blogs had ink, the ink wouldn't even be dry on the third million-dollar report we published. We just finished writing it about this morning...and another jackpot just happened...the fourth in six days.

Minutes ago, Estonia's barrakuuda4 won $1 million in a $100 Spin & Go after defeating Hungary's minargyuri and the Czech Republic's KvicKiller, both of whom got $100,000 consolation prizes.

The heads-up battle was a tense sweat. With more than 2,600 people watching and the stacks nearly even, barrakuuda4 pushed all-in with pocket fours and minargyuri called with A♥T♥.

Imagine that...essentially flipping for $900,000.

This is what happened.

It took just one hand after that, and barrakuuda4 became a millionaire.

How did the rest of the million-dollar wins happen? Well, fortunately we've been able to (barely) keep up.

Samara Lúcio spends $5, wins a million

wrawras gets another $1 million for Brazil

prophethicks turns $5 into $1 million

Now, if you have seen Casino, you know Rothstein fired that cowboy on the spot for not reporting the craziness.

We will now hit publish, as content as we can be that we have reported the insanity as quickly as possible.

Congrats to PokerStars' newest millionaire, Estonia's barrakuuda4!
