5 Ways to $1 Million on PokerStars; $1m Spin & Gos Are Back!


The next couple of months on PokerStars will be big ones for poker players who can take advantage of several different ways to become "poker millionaires."

The first and quickest way is to try your luck at the popular $1m Spin & Gos, which are back by popular demand.

Paying out three $1m prizes in less than a week this past January in a limited-time offering will do that.

Now for another short time, starting from March 27, players can take another shot at turning $5 into $1m - or even $100k for runners-up.

If you haven't played Spin & Gos before they're simple, 3-man hyper turbos where player start with 500 chips. The winner takes all, except in the top three tiers where even the runners-up get paid.

Before the tournament kicks off a spinner in the middle reveals the prize multiplier which sets the prize pool. Prizes can be up to $1m (only at the $5 level) but can range from $6,000 to $10 depending on buy-in. Check the full details on Spin & Gos here.
