  • Football fever hits PokerStars as the site launches Spin & Goal games with a $1.2 million jackpot.

You will no doubt have heard about PokerStars’ £100 Million Challenge, unless you have been hiding under a rock for the past couple of weeks, where a £100 million cash prize* is to be awarded to anyone who correctly predicts the outcomes of all 64 FIFA World Cup 2018 matches.

*The £100 million cash prize will be shared among everyone who correctly predicts the outcomes of all 64 FIFA World Cup 2018 matches. The prize will be paid in the local currency of participants from outside of the United Kingdom

Now PokerStars has launched another football-related promotion revolving around its Spin & Go jackpot tournaments called Spin & Goal.

These special Spin & Goal tournaments are available in the PokerStars lobby now with a $5 buy-in. They play like any other Spin & Go in that a multiplier is randomly selected. The multipliers range from 2x all the way up to 240,000x, the latter meaning that players will battle it out for a share of $1.2 million; the winner banks $1 million with second and third-place each walking away with $100,000.
