Two Winners in two Weeks Scoop $70,000 on iPoker’s Rio Jackpot

October 29, 2010

DOUGLAS, Isle of Man, October 29, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ –
Playtech’s iPoker network, the largest B2B network in the world, has given
away $70,000 in less than a fortnight, to the winning players of their Rio
Jackpot promotion.

The Rio 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.

This month saw one lucky Betfred player secure a $45,000 prize in five
and a half hours of great play, and only eight days later, a player on Paddy
won a further $25,000.

Describing his winning moment, the $45,000-winning 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.’

This unique and lucrative tournament will now reset at the starting prize
fund, giving players plenty more chances to win a fantastic $25,000 or more.
