A player from Canada is the seventh PokerStars millionaire during this Million Dollar Spin & Go promotion period.
Amaya’s world-leading online poker room produced six millionaires in a week, but there wasn’t another winner for a while until ‘Koovoon’ from Canada has become the latest PokerStars millionaire, gambling news report.
Koovoon needed no more than 39 hands to become a PokerStars millionaire. He bagged the $1 million jackpot actually in nine minutes. He was a strong chip leader during virtually the whole tournament and it wasn’t a surprise that it was that easy for him to beat AndyG1810 and Play2win$1kk, who are both from Russia and who both claimed a $100,000 dollar prize in the tournament that started with a $100 buy-in.
Koovoon’s million-dollar winning poker hand was an unsuited A4. The Canadian player moved all-in and AndyG1810 called with KJ unsuited. The flop was 2, A, 6, so Koovoon was in a winning position with a pair of aces. Turn produced a useless 3 while the river was a 6, so Koovoon won the tourney with two pairs, becoming the latest PokerStars millionaire.

Microgaming bad beat poker jackpot occurred at Microgaming’s Network of inter-connected poker rooms, where the rare Bad Beat Progressive Jackpot was miraculously won twice within 20 hours. Normally the Jackpot is won once every 4-15 weeks. The Microgaming Network offers specifically created virtual poker tables throughout its network of 36 independent online poker rooms.
The special poker rooms only operate when at least four people are playing, and offer a progressive Microgaming bad beat poker jackpot when one player is beaten by another in a showdown where the looser has at the minimum quad eights (four cards that are all 8’s) or higher. For the Progressive Jackpot to be awarded, the winner and the looser must use all of their ‘hole cards’ to make their hands.
At 6am UK time, a player on Microgaming network called ‘4447470’ (who had pocket tens) got involved in a hand with ‘epohon’ who held the Queen and King of Hearts. When the smoke cleared, ‘4447470’ held 10-10-10-10-A against ‘epohon’ who held 10-J-Q-K-A, all of hearts and a Royal Flush. It took a moment for player ‘4447470’ to realize he won the Progressive Bad Beat Microgaming Jackpot.
According to the rules, the $558,296.27 jackpot was divided among all four players with ‘4447470’ winning $195,403.70, ‘epohon’ winning $97,701.85 (along with the $500 that he won in the hand), and the remaining two players, who were not involved in the hand, each received $48,850.92.
The Progressive Jackpot was reseeded and 20 hours later grew to $114,264.23 when it was won by a player called ‘papa45’ who lost with four Jacks to ‘zebro74’ who held a straight flush. ‘Papa45’ won $39,992.48, ‘zebro74’ won $19,996.24 and the four remaining players, not involved in the hand, each won $4,999.06.

Bad Beat jackpots are becoming a popular trend, both online and offline. They are progressive jackpots attached to online poker games that are distributed to all the players at a table when one player loses to another with a very high hand. At Carbon Poker, the winner of the hand takes 17.5% of the jackpot, while the loser walks away with 35%. The rest of the cash is distributed to the other players at the table.
This week, player dk2112 won $156,402 in cash at a Bad Beat table. He was playing $.50/$1 no-limit at a table with a pot of just $55 when he won the big prize. He entered the table with pocket 7’s, which turned into quad sevens by the end of the hand. His confidence was shattered when his opponent BlackOutBob dropped quad 8’s.
Since dk2112 lost with such a strong hand, the Bad Beat Jackpot was set off, giving him the $156,402 prize. In fact, quad 7’s is the lowest hand that can trigger the jackpot, making dk2112 doubly lucky! BlackOutBob won the $55 pot but also took home $78,201 from the Bad Beat Jackpot. The other five players at the table were rewarded just for being there, getting $13,033 each.
While this is a pretty big jackpot win, it is nothing compared to the Carbon Poker record. Their largest ever Bad Beat Jackpot was $1.2 million, won on a Friday the 13th! Carbon Poker execs hope this figure will someday be trumped, but in the meantime, the jackpot has been reset to $100,000 and will continue to grow until it is won once again.
