As a part of the 10th anniversary celebration, PokerStars launched a new promotion yesterday morning. The promotion is called "Road to 100 Billion Poker hands" and lots of money is up for grabs. Starting from hand #71,700,000,000, prizes will be awarded for all players dealt into every millionth hand (e.g. 71,902,000,000), and more than $750,000 will be awarded in total, to more than 1,000 players. The winner of the Mega Milestone hand (#72,000,000,000) will get at least $20,000, and all other players at the table will get $10,000 each.

All you have to do to take part in this promo is to play at PokerStars and pray to the poker gods! If you don't have an account at PokerStars already, click here and get a 100% up to $600 deposit bonus.

This is very nice promotion, Altogether you gotta be lucky to win such a milestone hand, because your pokertable must be selected first. Good luck to all future milestone hand winners.

I was playing some SNG's when one of these came up the other day. They announce the table number so that you can rail. I think it was a 6max NL25 $10 capped table.

Anyway, it seems that everyone involved in the hand gets some kind of bonus (more than $10) and the winner gets double so obviously they are all going all-in $10 each. All that is except one player who folded preflop despite the PS rep explaining in the chat what was about to happen and asking if all players were ready for the hand to be dealt. I sniggered a bit but judging by some of the chat most railing fell over laughing. Big Smile

Nice promotion but i'm sure that as always there will be a lot of debate regarding the winners...

Lets hope at least a mobster will get some of those money that pokerstars has to offer Big Smile

That would be so sweet! Moral of this story is don't sit out at a poker stars table for the next little while. LOL. Missing out on 10 grand would be deadly!
 schwabo09/12/2011 09:35:14 GMT
You can't miss because you have number of tables playing about 30 000 and you have number of hands to mill. hand in lobby -like 645 526 hands to mill hand and you know for 30 hands will be near mill. hand and that is all day like that Thumbs Up

Must be nice to win this kind of promotion, especially if you don't know about it! But you need to be very lucky and play a lot ^^

Pokerstars keeps the lead by far distance in terms of promotions. They dont want just to be the first and most known online poker room on the net, they want to keep the status, this is already something like Coca Cola in the non alcoholic fresh drinks business: reaching the top and getting a way to keep here the longest time possible, forever if possible!

I love pokerstars, they have always nice promotions. You need very much luck to play in such a hand, but if you do, the winnings are really big. Hope I can play in such a hand. good luck to all
