Wheels of fortune come up $1.2m

First, there was just a lone Russian handyman who could lay claim to winning $1m in a $5 Spin & Go on PokerStars.

Now, all of sudden, he's one of three.

Two more $1m Spin & Go prizes were claimed over the weekend making for a total of three in just one week.

Czech player Tornádo111 and Canadian anushan_2323 are the newest members of the $5 spin-it-up club and there's still time to join them.

How to Spend $1m

After a long wait to see the wheels come up $1m the rush of winners in the past week has dramatically changed a few lives.

The first winner, Russian sss66666, told the PokerStars blog that as a handyman he would have been happy with the runner-up $100,000.

Instead, he's trying to figure out just what do to with $1m. So far his plans include wiping away any financial concerns for his family and donating to a children's charity.

The newest winners will have a similar decision on their hands. Tornádo111 earned his win on Saturday by beating out newann and RusGreen with some fortunate turns of the cards.

Anushan_2323 claimed his fortune on Saturday by beating out Sweden's ChipsMongot and Germany's jukebox72. He sealed the win with a flip, beating 88 with his AK.

All four runner-ups pocketed $100k. For more info on the limited-time $5 Spin & Go promotion, go here. Watch Tornádo111's win below.
