PokerStars is nearing the deal of its 95 billionth hand in the site’s history and is rewarding players with thousands of dollars to celebrate the event.
A total of 300 hands are milestone hands and will receive cash prizes beginning with 94,700,000,000 and each millionth hand after that, culminating in the big ninety-five billionth hand where the winner is assured of at least $20,000. To be eligible, players must be playing on any non-Zoom Poker cash table.
Players who are dealt cards in a milestone hand will receive $60 for each VIP Player Point (VPP) that they earned in the previous 50 hands that were played on that virtual table. That’s in addition to a $20 base prize for each player. Also, winning any portion of the pot will double a player’s prize money.
PokerStars recommends multi-tabling to increase your chances of being dealt into a milestone hand. If you happen to be away from your desktop or laptop, using an iPhone or iPad PokerStars app will make sure that you don’t miss out on this exciting promotion.
The last mega milestone on the Road to 100 Billion was the 90 billionth hand that paid out $229,630 at a $1/$2 No-Limit Hold’em table. The winner of the milestone hand was “m1sspiggy,” who took home a total of $66,360 in prize money.
PokerStars is gearing up for the big 100 billionth hand that is certain to be dealt in 2013. The rewards will be greater for players lucky enough to be dealt in on that historic milestone hand in the illustrious history of the world’s top online poker site.
If you haven’t played at PokerStars, it’s not too late to open an account and get in on the 95 billionth hand celebration. A 100% deposit bonus up to $600 is available to players who make their first deposit. And PokerStars allows you to spread out that first deposit into three separate deposits over a 90-day span. A generous six months is allowed in which to claim the bonus.
