South Australian Wins Largest Ever 888poker Jackpot!
Posted at 10:04 2010-08-18
The largest ever 888poker jackpot has been won and the good news is that the money is heading down under as South Australian Anh-Tuan Tran pocketed over US$190,000 last Friday on a day that he’ll never forget.
Anh-Tuan hit 888poker’s largest Royal Jackpot playing on a $1/$2 No Limit Hold’em jackpot table when he hit a spade Royal Flush. The win set a new benchmark for the increasingly popular 888poker jackpot and has changed the life for one very happy Aussie.
Ironically, it was Friday the 13th, often thought to be unlucky for some, but for this 888poker league tournament director, it was the luckiest day of his life!
Gareth Edwards, Director of Poker Strategy, stated, “When we established the jackpot on 888poker we hoped for big wins for the players and we are excited to see our first 190,000+ jackpot.” Gareth went on to say, “We congratulate Anh-Tuan on his victory and look forward to the next set of big winners and jackpots.”
The jackpot will now reset and rebuild for the next lucky jackpot winner. You can give yourself a chance at a piece of the jackpot by simply choosing to play on any designated jackpot tables in the 888poker lobby under the Jackpot tab. If you feel your next hand at the table will be a lucky one, choose to “Place a Jackpot Bet” and you could be the next jackpot winner. All you need is a royal flush to get a portion of the prize, and if you can make it in spades you’ll win it all!>
