Consecutive Million-Dollar Slot Jackpot Wins Do Wonders for PokerStars Reputation
Owned by the Canadian gaming giant formerly known as Amaya – most recently rebranded into The Stars Group – PokerStars as the name suggests primarily focuses on card games.
PokerStars Looking for Slot Opportunities
Having built a global reputation of the market leader, PokerStars has now set its sights on promoting itself into the leading operator of slots and other non-poker online casino content. PokerStars Casino hit the market in April 2015 but its reputation has been going through a steady growth over the past two years.
Despite being primarily a US-faced operator, PokerStars Casino has managed to attract players from more than 175 countries. The United States currently only allows virtual casinos in New Jersey where PokerStars currently only offers it online poker games but this is something that can change in the future with more and more US states considering allowing online gambling which could be PokerStars’ big chance.
Big Money Wins
Two players who won million-dollar jackpots on consecutive days playing Millionaire’s Island earlier in August have certainly helped PokerStars boost its reputation.
The two wins occurred on successive days in July with the first one hitting in Belarus, where an anonymous player scooped $2.43 million, a record payout for Millionaire’s Island. A restaurant owner from Greece joined his Belarus colleague in celebration the very next day when he won a $1.34 million prize.
Millionaire’s Island launched in December 2016 and has thus far produced four $1 million winners, two of which are proud customers of the PokerStars casino. The slot is turning to be quite a success for PokerStars as it has so far racked up more than 100 million spins and proved to be highly popular with PokerStars players.
