Player Qualifies for ACR Million Dollar Sunday for $0.12

Million Dollar SundaysKevin “CrazyRiver1” Johnson qualified for Americas Cardroom´s forthcoming Million Dollar Sunday for $0.12 by playing the site´s “Spin to Get IN” slot game.

Earlier this month, USAFriendlyPokerSites broke the news that Americas Cardroom was going to host another $1 million guaranteed tournament [geolink href=””]on Sunday April 24[/geolink]. Shortly after the news was confirmed, Americas Cardroom started rolling out a comprehensive series of satellites and promotions to enable players to qualify for the Million Dollar Sunday for a fraction of the $540.00 buy-in.

One of the promotions is the popular “Spin to Get IN” slot game – a three-reel slot that gives players the opportunity to qualify for any Americas Cardroom tournament for as little as $0.01. Incredibly, Kevin “CrazyRiver1” Johnson played the $0.01 slot game twelve times, and on his twelfth spin won a seat in the $1 million guaranteed event.

“Holy Cow, Holy Cow, I´m in, I´m in!”

Speaking with the Americas Cardroom blog, Kevin explained that he is a recreational player who usually sits with around $100 in his account and sometimes invests any spare change in “Spin to Get IN” promotions. His only success to date has been a ticket to a $22.00 buy-in tournament – way above the level of tournaments he usually enters.

Kevin told Iain Lietchti he nearly dropped his laptop when he realized that his $0.12 investment had paid off big time and shouted out loud “Holy cow, holy cow, I´m in, I´m in”. Kevin said that he has only been playing at Americas Cardroom since August last year and has never played in a tournament with as much cash up for grabs as will be available in next month´s Million Dollar Sunday.

About “Spin to get IN”

The “Spin to Get IN” promotion has been around for just over a year now. It allows players to stake $0.01, $0.25 or $1.00 on the spin of three reels to win a seat in the target event for hitting three cards of the same value in the payout window. The chances of success are based on the value of the bet compared with the value of the tournament buy-in and the promotion has a 98% payout.

Kevin is not the first player to hit the biggest prize of all in the “Spin to Get IN” promotion. When the first Million Dollar Sunday was played at Americas Cardroom on Sunday February 22, 2015, twenty-one players qualified for the $1 million dollar guaranteed tournament through the “Spin to Get IN” promotion – it is not known how many of those invested $0.12 or less to win their $540.00 seat.

About the Million Dollar Sunday

April´s Million Dollar Sunday will be the highlight of the forthcoming Online Super Series VI – a series of seventy-six tournaments being played from Friday April 15 with a wide range of formats and buy-ins. The feature event gets underway at 4:00pm (ET) on Sunday April 24 and has unlimited re-entries and late registration for 20 levels (five hours).

In its previous seven runnings, the Million Dollar Sunday has never managed to hit its guarantee, so there is the prospect of a significant overlay for players who cash in the tournament. First prize in the event is guaranteed at $200,000, and every player reaching the final table is guaranteed $18,000. Typically, around 250 players will be in the money (a min-cash is usually worth $800.00). Let´s hope “CrazyRiver1” is one of them.
