"SonOfRichDad" Bags First Ever GGPoker $1M Bounty Jackpot!

GGPoker Bounty Jackpot

Back in October 2022, GGPoker introduced the Bounty Jackpot to their highly popular Progressive Knockout (PKO) tournaments. The 'Bounty Jackpot' sees a player potentially being rewarded with a mystery prize after they eliminate an opponent, with the top payout being a massive $1,000,000!

Well, the first-ever top bounty jackpot prize has been paid out with the aptly named "SonOfRichDad" pocketing the seven-figure sum.

The Jackpot Winning Hand

The hand played out in the $54 Ultra Deepstack Bounty Turbo, which is a part of the ongoing $50 million guaranteed Bounty Hunter Series.

Five of the players at the table were sitting out as the hand was dealt during table balancing. So, "Tokyo90" jammed in his short stack from the small blind with ace-ten offsuit. "SonOfRichDad", who was just trying to lock up the $12.50 bounty on his opponent's head, made the call from the big blind with jack-seven offsuit.

Both players paired up on the ten-high flop and a brick on the turn put the at-risk player as the clear favorite. However, another seven on the river gave "SonOfRichDad" trips and the winning hand.

An animation then appeared on the screen, and as the virtual scroll unraveled, a sum of $10,263 appeared. That prize alone would have anyone jumping for joy but it got even better for "SonOfRichDad" as that figure then flashed to the $1 million bounty jackpot prize! Which is quite the reward from a $54 buy-in event.
