PokerStars Embraces World Cup Fever with Matchday Millions

PokerStars Casino released its newest online casino game Matchday Millions—a football-themed 5x3 slot with a minimum jackpot of US$1 million.

Online casino game developer PokerStars Casino prepares for the World Cup this June as they launched Matchday Millions—joining the growing list of football-themed slots in the casino market.

Matchday Millions is an online progressive jackpot slot developed in-house by PokerStars Casino. The three-row, five-reel slot features symbols with prominent football-related elements such as a referee’s whistle, a striker’s goal, a goalkeeper, and a female fan. A bettor can win the jackpot and become a Matchday Millionaire by kicking five Golden Balls anywhere on the reels.

The slot game shares its minimum US$1 million progressive prize pool with other PokerStars Casino games—Millionaires Island and Stars Mega Spin. Just this May, the shared jackpot surpassed the US$3 million mark and was awarded to a bettor playing Millionaires Island. Currently, the prize pool stands at around US$1.5 million.

Bo Wänghammar, managing director of PokerStars Casino, said:

“[Our] World Cup-fuelled entertainment has spread to our casino. We hope that Matchday Millions can create another millionaire during the World Cup, adding to the twelve millionaires we have already created at PokerStars Casino.”

Games developed by PokerStars Casino have already rewarded 12 lucky bettors—nine of them in 2017 alone—with jackpot prizes worth more than a million dollars each.

A Star-Studded Party

PokerStars goes all out with more offerings fit for this summer’s football festivities.

Another in-house exclusive slot is scheduled for release before the World Cup. Online slot game Stars Lineup invites bettors to gear up and aim for the prize. The game features a special four-level jackpot system. By reaching the jackpot, the players receive the privilege to take part in the bonus session where they will play to win one of the four top prizes: Mega US$100 thousand, Super US$5 thousand, Midi US$500, and Mini US$50. Apart from Stars Lineup being a football-related slot, no other information about the game has been announced.

Those who do not play slots—card players, and bettors, online casino players—are also welcome to join PokerStars football party with its Stars £100 Million Challenge. All the participants have to do is scout each of the 32 teams in this year’s World Cup and predict the outcome of all 64 football matches to be played. Players who achieved a 100 percent success rate after the World Cup final will share the £100 million prize lot.

Meanwhile, BetStars—PokerStars’ betting arm—invites players to wager and win cash in the comfort of their home, all while watching great football teams compete on the pitch. In Live Football Studio, a dealer assigns one card to each of the participating teams. Then, bettors wager on which team holds the higher card value.

The 2018 FIFA World Cup—world football’s greatest competition—pits 32 of the best international teams to determine who is the best among them all. The tournament kicks-off this June 14 with hosts Russia facing off Saudi Arabia in Moscow.
