The Rio Jackpot Sit 'n Go Tournament was launched six years ago, and has a starting prize pot of $30,000 that increases every week. One player on William Hill, nicknamed KioN1, started playing the Rio Jackpot because he wanted 'to try a new variation of the Sit 'n Go' and his move paid off; he won $30,000 in only 17 minutes of play. He will continue playing the Rio and will also try his hand on iPoker's Fort Knox promotion, describing these tournaments as 'very exciting because it is always possible to win the first prize!'
Two more players, both on Titan Poker, won $45,000 and $30,000 each, making it a great end to the year for iPoker and its players.
