Hello resident of The People's Republic of Canuckistan,
Thank you for contacting PokerStars.
Please note Milestone hands are not dealt in multi-table tournaments, Sit & Gos, or Spin & Gos and for a very important reason - to maintain the integrity of the tournament itself. If a milestone hand was to occur at a tournament table, the added value of winning that one hand would be so big that every player at that table would have no incentive to fold. The entirety of the event would be affected by that one external influence. For that reason, milestone hands will only be dealt in cash ring games (Zoom excluded).
When we run milestone hands promotions such as this one, our server recognises when the milestone hand is about to hit and momentarily pauses tournaments and play money games so that the key hand is dealt at a real money ring game table. The pause is so short that players would not be able to notice it, so it does not affect their game play at all.
Other than this, we do not get involved in the selection of the lucky table at all. The server simply deals hand numbers sequentially to ring game tables until the milestone hand is dealt, then continues with all tables as normal. All real money ring game tables (excluding Zoom and Home Games) are eligible and none are favoured in any way.
For more detailed information on the Milestone Hands promotion and all 25 of the daily Christmas Calendar Promotions, visit the "Challenge" tab in the main lobby.
Please do not hesitate to contact us again should you have further questions, and thank you for joining us in the celebrations!
