PokerStars Road to 100 Billion Hands: 60 Billion
PokerStars hit their 50 billionth hand back on Wednesday September 22nd 2010 and they are looking to hit their 60 billionth hand some time during March 2011. They are also looking ahead to their staggering 100 billionth hand dealt and to celebrate this feat they have started the road to 100 billion hands promotion.
During the road to 100 billion promotion a seperate promotion will be held for each 10 billion hands reached, starting with the 60 billionth hand celebration that is running during March 2011.
For the 60 billionth hand celebration, PokerStars will be giving one cash prize to each player dealt into each millionth hand starting at 59,700,000,000 and ending at 60,000,000,000. The amount of each cash prize is determined by the numbers of VPP's earned during the players previous 50 hands and is calculated as follows.
59,700,000,000 - 59,999,000,000
•Win Hand: Cash prize equals number of VPP's in last 50 hands x $50 + $50 x 2
60 billionth hand
•Win Hand: Cash prize equals number of VPP's in last 50 hands x $500 + $500 x 2 + $60,000
Close to $1,000,000 is expected to be awarded during the 60 billionth hand promotion with the player lucky enough to win the 60 billionth hand earning atleast a $60,000 cash prize. In order to qualify for a cash prize you must play at PokerStars cash game tables, tournament hands do not count.
You can keep track of the current number of hands dealt via the hand counter at the top of any PokerStars cash game table during the promotion. Good luck and look out for PokerStars 70 billionth hand promotion coming soon.
