One fortunate online punter from Ontario, Canada has been able to win a large amount of money. This hockey coach and Canadian citizen was playing at Full Tilt Poker when he triggered $233,852. This punter triggered “The Deal” progressive jackpot which is a common winner at Full Tilt.
This big winner isn’t new to large amounts of money as he is the owner of a restaurant in Toronto as well as a part-time hockey coach. He won this large prize while watching the Toronto Blue Jays vs Atlanta Braves baseball game that took place last week. This coach was playing poker while also watching this baseball game. At first he thought that he had only won $116 until he then realised it was a jackpot win, moments later he received an email from Full Tilt Poker where they notified him that he was a progressive jackpot winner. Contact information and various security details were also included within the email.
This winning punter who’s opted to remain anonymous stated, “I called my dad moments after I realised it was a jackpot win. I told him that I think I just won a jackpot on Full Tilt Poker. I’ve never played competitively, I like poker as a hobby. It’s like playing hockey or cards with my friends. I’m just happy to have won this jackpot. The Deal Jackpot is only triggered after players are provided with a royal flush that ends up hitting the jackpot symbol on the wheel of fortune. Play this game today at PokerStars or FullTilt.
