Spin & Gos make third millionaire of the week

The late American comic Bill Hicks once said, "It's all about money, not freedom, y'all, okay? Nothing to do with (expletive) freedom. If you think you're free, try going somewhere without (expletive) money, okay?"

While perhaps not the cheeriest sentiment for a Monday, it's an apropos quote. Why? Because a man who uses Hicks' name and image on PokerStars just picked up a lot of money. In a matter of seven minutes, the man known online as "prophethicks" turned $5 into $1 million. He was the third person in a week to cash in for a million in the PokerStars Spin & Go Anniversary celebration.

That screen shot comes from Team Online's Felix Schneiders who just happened to be streaming live when the Spin & Go jackpot went off.

If you want to see it as it happened, this is what it looked like.

Felix logged on after Holland's "snagon-nl" finished third for $100,000 but just in time to see Romania's "BARCA1CRIS" do the same.

This past week is unlike anything we've seen before at PokerStars. In the span of five days, three people won a collective $3 million on a combined buy-in of $110.

The Spin & Go anniversary celebration ends on Sunday, but $1 million Spin & Go jackpots are still available. Will you be next?
