Two Online Poker Tournament Winners In 2 Weeks Scoop $70,000 On iPoker's Rio Progressive Jackpot.
(DOUGLAS, Isle of Man). Playtech's iPoker network, the largest online poker network in the world, has given away $70,000 in less than a fortnight, to the winning online players of their Rio Jackpot promotion.
The $25,000 Rio Progressive Jackpot Sit 'N Go tournament has been running continuously for the past six years, and has already given away over $6.5 million. With an initial prize fund of $25,000, the jackpot increases by $10,000 every week, until someone wins six consecutive Rio Jackpot Sit 'N Go tournaments, and scoops the grand prize of at least $25K.
This month saw one lucky Betfred poker player secure a $45,000 prize in five and a half hours of great play, and only eight days later, a player on Paddy Power won a further $25,000 jackpot.
The Rio is a 6-player, $20 + $3.50 sit 'n' go tournament, available at any iPoker networked online poker room. As soon as six players sit down at the table, the action begins. But the Rio is much more than a regular sit 'n' go tourney... If you manage to win six tournaments in a row, you'll take home not only the regular tournament winnings, you will also receive the growing Rio Jackpot Prize! Finish in either 1st or 2nd place in six consecutive "Rio Jackpot Sit 'N' Go" tournaments and you're entitled to a $300 Prize!
Describing his winning moment, the $45,000-winning poker player said: "It was an absolutely marvelous scene! I invited five friends over and we just partied all night! I felt very satisfied that it was possible after missing the Rio Jackpot a couple of times before. I will be trying the Rio Jackpot again and also Fort Knox [another iPoker promotion] which is actually my preferred Sit 'N Go."
