his is the eighth millionaire made in the last two months, and the thirteenth this year. PokerStars famously made six millionaires in a week in late October, and while the special promotion to celebrate the one-year anniversary of Spin & Go's has concluded, the $100 Spin & Go's are continuing to award a maximum prize of $1 million on an ongoing basis.
The $100 buy-in Spin & Go tournament started at 7 p.m. Australian Eastern Summer Time on Dec. 14 and concluded at 7:10 p.m., making a new millionaire after just 10 minutes of poker play – the second-fastest ever Million Dollar Spin & Go.
The fastest victory was the previous millionaire "Koovoon," who won $1 Million in 9 minutes, 38 seconds. While Koovoon won in a shorter time, GrindHeaps won in a smaller number of poker hands – just 33 hands of poker decided who would be a millionaire.
The runner up was "gavonater" from Ireland, who won $100,000. The third-place player was "EnglishGirl9" from the United Kingdom, who also won $100,000.
