Three months after Winamax announced a €1 million jackpot prize in an Expresso game with a €1 buy-in, the jackpot is won despite extremely low odds.

A million euro jackpot win was scored earlier this week on Winamax's Expresso game, an extremely unlikely occurrence with odds of one in ten million, by a player named "Bastuguee".

Winamax, a giant in French online poker, has completely revamped its Expresso format and increased the maximum jackpot reward from $50,000 to $1,000,000 for half of its buy-ins.

Even though the seven-figure jackpot award has been won before, this particular instance is the rarest of the rare because the jackpot was won in a game with a €1 buy-in.

Now there are nine Expresso events with seven-figure jackpot payouts in all, which is the biggest of any operator in the business.

The lowest price point currently provided by any operator is a €1 tournament, which has the cheapest buy-in with a €1 million jackpot. Other buy-ins that currently provide top rewards in the seven figures are €2, €5, €10, €25, and €50. Previously, only buy-ins of €100 or more were eligible for such top prize pools.

Along with 888poker, Winamax is one of just two operators offering a seven-figure jackpot reward on a €1 buy-in game. 

Players have a one in ten million chance of winning the top prize pool in the hyper-turbo lottery-style sit-and-go game, which included €800,000 for the first prize, €120,000 in second place, and €80,000 in third place.
