A sixth-place finish in the 2013 PokerStars UKIPT Galway Main Event earned Spragg €30,210, which propelled his bankroll skyward and gave him the freedom to play higher stakes online.

The popular streamer plays online poker exclusively at PokerStars, where he has won more than $2.6 million. In July 2020, Spragg banked a career-best $70,633 for winning a $5,200 No-Limit Hold'em event that was part of the Stadium Series. Fourteen months later, Spraggy became a World Championship Of Online Poker (WCOOP) champion, taking down a $1,050 NLHE PKO for $67,968.

Although Spragg primarily plays poker online, he is becoming a familiar face in the live poker world. A victory in the 2023 UKIPT Brighton Main Event came with £69,120, a career-high, and one of the reasons Spragg has more than $480,000 in live tournament winnings.
