Round up of latest results

The first weekend of the New Year and a new Sunday Million winner. Noaceforme collected more than $169,000 in this weekend's contest. As Jason Kirk reported, it's an event that allows players to dream big, and in this case there's no better way to start the year.

The same applies to 69sBigLick. Whether or not they set themselves the resolution to win more, it seems to be working. As David Aydt wrote the eventual winner was rewarded for their patience and started the year with a bang.
