More Millions Being Given Away on PokerStars

PokerStars have launched a “Road to 100 Billion Hands” promotion where they could conceivably be giving away one million dollars at every 5 billion-hand stage. Having cracked the 60 billion-hand mark at the end of March, PokerStars are confident that the 65 billionth hand will be dealt before the end of July and, with PokerStars receiving a lot more traffic since the demise of Full Tilt Poker, anticipate giving away a million dollars in this promotion every three months from now on.

Prizes for Every Million Hands

In the first “milestone” promotion, PokerStars will be handing out $50.00 cash prizes to everybody seated at a cash ring game when each millionth hand is dealt between hands 64,700,000,000 and 64,999,000,000 (e.g. 64,902,000,000). Additional free bonus cash will be calculated on the number of VIP Player Points (VPPs) you have earned in the previous fifty hands and the winner of the hand will get their prize doubled.

An example of how it works:-

You have played on a $1.00/$2.00 cash table for an hour when the millionth milestone hand is dealt. In the last 50 hands you have earned 34 VPPs so will automatically receive $50.00 + (34 x $50.00) = $1,750.00! If you go on to win the hand, the prize is doubled to $3,500.00!!

The 65 Billionth Hand

The “mega-milestone” hand is the one everybody is going to want to be in. The prize for just being seated at the table when hand number 65,000,000,000 is dealt is $500.00, plus you will receive $500.00 more for each VPP you have earned in the last 50 hands. Not only will the winner of the hand have their prize doubled, but PokerStars will also throw in an additional $65,000 for an extra special celebration.

An example of how much you could win:-

You have played on a $1.00/$2.00 cash table for an hour when the 65 millionth mega-milestone hand is dealt. In the last 50 hands you have earned 34 VPPs so will automatically receive $500.00 + (34 x $500.00) = $17,500.00! If you go on to win the hand, the prize is doubled to $35,000.00 and PokerStars will add a further $65,000, making a grand total of $100,000!!!
