It’s a number that’s impossible to wrap your head around, no matter how hard you try. It’s a total nearly seven times the population of the planet, an astonishing tally that defies the imagination. 50,000,000,000 – The number of hands that PokerStars has dealt out over their years as one of the top names in the gaming industry. It’s an landmark feat; one that must be celebrated.
In accordance with the festive milestone, PokerStars is now offering several different ways to cash in on this coming historic hand. Here’s what the promo folks have cooked up:
Right now, players who find themselves dealt into every millionth hand on the way to the target number will earn $50 for every VPP they’ve garnered over the previous 50 hands at the table. Also, any player who receives a portion of the winning pot will see their cash prize doubled. Once the 50 billionth hand is dealt, the same rules will be in effect, only with $500 earned for each VPP. The winner of the Mega Milestone hand will also receive $50,000, and everyone who participates will receive entry into the $5,200 WCOOP Main Event.
Sit & Go’s:
Five special 50-player Super Sit & Go events have been running each day since September 10, with play wrapping up today. They will be available for a few more hours, with buy-in’s and startup times ranging in accordance with a wide variety of bankroll levels. The winner of each tournament receives a chunk of a total $50,000 prize pool.
Members of PokerStars’ VIP Club can get an instant $50 cash boost to their bankroll for only 3,000 FPP’s. This offer is good regardless of your VIP level, so players of all levels will be eligible.
