Russian Player Wins €250,000 at PokerStars Live on Twitch

It takes a tremendous amount of luck to hit the Spin & Go Jackpot on PokerStars, and it takes even more luck to win one while streaming on Twitch.

However, one Russian player managed to do just that recently. Playing under the infamous nick "SolidPenis", the player hit the jackpot in a €25 buy-in Spin & Go while he was streaming on Twitch. He then went on to win the whole thing for €250,000 or approximately $275,000.

Spin & Go’s are fast-paced, 3-Max Hyper-Turbo Sit & Go tournaments, featuring 500 chip starting stacks. Buy-ins range from $0.25 to $100 and each tournament has a randomly drawn prize pool that will award between two and 10,000 times your buy-in.

According to PokerStars, the frequency to hit a jackpot in a $30 Spin & Go (equivalent to €25 Spin & Go) is 1 in 1,000,000 or 0,000001%:
