Two extremely lucky gamblers strike gold in two consecutive days as they hit the jackpot on Millionaires Island, an exclusive progressive jackpot online slot operated by PokerStars casino, becoming overnight millionaires in the process.

The two players won a combined total of close to $3.8 million, with one of them getting $2.4 million – an all-time record at PokerStars Casino.

The first of the two winners, a Belarusian player who wished to remain anonymous, said he had only started to play Millionaires Island for the very first time three days prior to making the fortuitous click on 26 July. Sitting next to him at the time was his girlfriend who had thought it was all a joke and took several minutes before being convinced it was all real. The mysterious player also said that he’s always had a gut feeling that he would win – he believes anyone can win, so why not him?

The second player to be crowned a millionaire by the same game on the very next day was “Stefblue3”, a 34-year-old Greek restaurant owner, couldn’t believe his eyes when it happened. He said:

“I thought it was a dream and I didn’t believe it for a few days. It was amazing; I was dancing on the table!”

The restaurant owner said he plans to spend the money on his family and friends, and as an avid poker player, will use part of the winnings to buy a trip to Barcelona and participate in the PokerStars championship.

The millionaire-maker slot has only been launched for a little over half a year but has already made 4 millionaires since its introduction and quickly became a fan-favorite for anyone wishing to try their luck. Together, Pokerstars Casino has now made five millionaires in total.

“Millionaires Island has proved to be hugely popular with our players,” PokerStars Casino Director Bo Wänghammar said in a press release celebrating the game’s early success. The slot has racked up more than 100 million spins since its introduction. We look forward to continuing to provide our players with a fantastic, expanding portfolio of games that deliver winning moments as we become the go-to destination for online casino entertainment.”

As a market leader in the online gaming sphere, PokerStars Casino takes pride in offering the most innovative games to its players. While its proprietary progressive jackpot slot that offers a minimum of a $1 million jackpot has obviously been hitting the headlines the most, the casino giant also offers other prominent slots such as Mega Fortune, FairyTale Legends: Red Riding Hood and The Wild Chase, just to name a few.
