DOUGLAS, Isle Of Man, February 15, 2011 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ --
- Player Wins $310,000 on Two iPoker Jackpots in Two Months
A player on Playtech's iPoker network, the largest B2B network in the world, has won $280,000 in his second jackpot win in as many months. This latest win on the Fort Knox Jackpot follows a $30,000 win on iPoker's Rio Jackpot in December.
Fort Knox is a Sit 'n Go tournament that has a starting prize fund of $50,000 that increases every week until a player wins six consecutive tournaments and lands the jackpot. With over $6.5 million given away in its five-year history, Fort Knox is one of iPoker's most popular jackpots.
The William Hill player, nicknamed isKioN1, commented: 'I started playing the Fort Knox SNG because it was profitable from the beginning. Not only can you win the first prize but also second prize, which is won easier and more frequently. I will continue playing both the Rio and Fort Knox, as they have the biggest jackpot prizes.'
