For the first time in history, a massive $2 million Spin & Gold (SNG) jackpot has been paid out on the GGPoker Network (GGPN). Three players shared the seven-figure prize on the fastest-growing online poker network, where a new millionaire was crowned in the process.
History was made in a three-handed $100 Texas Hold’em Spin & Gold buy-in on 20 June 2021, one of three currently available formats that offer the huge $2 million jackpot. The 20,000x multiplier ensured a six-figure payday for all participants as nobody in this rare scenario walked away empty-handed.
This $2 million jackpot is the second rarest jackpot prize on GGPN. Only the 1,00,000x multiplier in three-handed buy-ins of $1 and $10 and the 2,00,000x multiplier in the respective six-handed edition are rarer, with a ratio of one out of 10 million games.
This $2 million jackpot prize pool on GGPN is one of the biggest prizes ever given away in a jackpot SNG format. The eventual winner, “kapsikorn” earned 10,000 times the buy-in whereas “King Ghidorah” walked away with 6,000 times of what was risked. Last but not least, even the first player to bust, “n@meless” will be remembered as the player earned 4,000 times the entry fee.
With potentially life-changing money on the line, the record-breaking SNG lasted for 31 minutes and 53 seconds thanks to the deeper structure. Eventually, “King Ghidorah” got it in with an ace-deuce while “kapsikorn” locked them up with king-jack. An eight-seven-four flop and seven on the turn changed nothing. However, the king fell on the river to seal the victory for “kapsikorn”.
