On Tuesday, PokerStars began the countdown to its 95 billionth hand. There's up to $1,000,000 in cash to play for, and more than 300 chances to win. All you have to is to play at PokerStars cash game tables and be dealt into a millionth hand from 94,700,000,000 to 95,000,000,000 (e.g. 94,902,000,000).

How can I increase my chances of winning?
• Play on more tables - If you are able to play on more than one table at a time, you will increase your chances of being dealt into a milestone hand. • Play longer sessions - The size of the prizes depends on the number of VIP Player Points (VPPs) you have earned while sitting at the table. Try to take a seat at a table well in advance of the next milestone hand to increase the amount of your potential prize. • Loosen up - you earn VPPs every time you contribute to a raked pot. The more pots you play in, the more VPPs you will earn.
