Happy holidays, all. Hope you got everything you wanted. And that the cleaning up of wrapping paper and boxes hasn’t been too taxing.

Speaking of cleaning up, in case you missed it the 12 Days of Spraggmas are in the books and the presents Benjamin “Spraggy” Spragg received were nothing short of a Spraggmas Miracle. We wanted to let you know how things wound up for Spraggy, but before we get to that, there is a lot to say about Day 12 of Spraggmas.

Spraggy received his final challenge shortly after he was going live on Spraggmas Day, December 23. For his final task, Spraggy had to win 12 Spin & Go’s. Sounds easy enough, right? Well, some members of the Spraggy community might recall a stream where Spraggy played 20 Spins — and lost 19 of them!

That wasn’t the only challenge of the day, though. Spraggy and PokerStars had one as well for the community members who were behind the Spraggmas videos and challenges, moderators RuthAnnK and DatPaddy.

RuthAnnK and DatPaddy were given 12 Spin & Go Tickets each. Spraggy and his viewers would then watch their play in the chat, and every time they won one of their Spin & Go’s, a $50 Spin & Go ticket would get raffled away to one of the viewers. They ended up winning a few, including a $500 Spin & Go worth $1,000.

Then, finally, it was time for Spraggy’s own Spraggmas Day present.

Not only did PokerStars officially (unofficially) sign Spraggy’s beloved neighbourhood cat Billy as an honorary Ambassador, Spraggy also received a Platinum Pass and is going play the 2020 PokerStars Players No-Limit Hold’em Championship in Barcelona!

On top of that, Spraggy also gets to give away a Platinum Pass to his community in 2020. To find out how, follow him on his Twitch channel and tune in to his steams.

Merry Spraggmas! (And a Happy New Benj.)
