Record €317k Win for MPN’s Fish Party S&G
The Microgaming Poker Network’s (MPN) Fish Party €20 jackpot has reportedly struck for a massive, record-smashing prize. One lucky player managed to score an impressive windfall of €317,849.78, showing just how far twenty bucks can take you with a bit of luck on your side!
The jackpot in question was struck just a few minutes past midnight on Wednesday, October 17, coming as the largest ever win on the popular gaming network since it first launched back in mid-2016.
The hefty cash prize pool will be shared between one player from Betsson Group and two players from RedKings, all of whom took part in a three-seater Sit and Go Fish Party game with an affordable buy-in of €20, as mentioned above.
Three Players Share the Loot
The RedKings player, known as ‘SipsCommin’, scooped the top spot and the largest share of the prize on offer, taking home a handsome paycheck of €158,924.89 for his efforts. ‘Check_Norris’, one of the Betsson Group players, took second place and won €95,354.93, while the final RedKings player ‘grndonlck’ headed up the pack in third place with winnings of €63,569.96.
Up until now, the MPN Fish Party jackpot has been struck no less than 22 times, and in this time has paid out well over €1.2 million in fantastic poker prizes. The latest win, however, has marked the third time that the jackpot has been hit in the past three months alone, as well as the ninth such incidence so far in 2018.
