April 7, 2009 (CAP Newswire) — Maybe it’s fitting, given that the Italian online gambling market is currently one of the world’s hottest: An Italian online poker player has hit the jackpot with an enviable $90,000 tournament prize at Titan Poker.
According to a news release issued by Euro Partners, Titan Poker’s affiliate partner, the lucky player, Pierpaolo Pica, hit the jackpot after almost a full year of playing online. It’s his biggest poker win ever, which he achieved by winning five straight $5 + $1 Maui "Jackpot Sit 'N Go" tournaments.
“This is after almost a year of trying … I thought it was impossible, but it happened!” Pica told Titan Poker representatives. “Five consecutive Maui Jackpots in order to pocket $99,000 was really fantastic! All thanks to a big dose of chance and above all to Titan Poker… many thanks!”
The largest poker room on the iPoker Network with almost 30,000 players during peak hours, Titan Poker is powered by Playtech software. Guaranteeing $16,000,000 in monthly prizes, Titan Poker also states that its jackpot “sit 'n' go” tournaments are among its most popular games, attracting veteran and novice poker players alike. The Maui, which Pica won, is a ten-player, $5 + $1 Sit 'N Go tournament.
