PokerStars Fifth Anniversary Celebration

PokerStars is celebrating its 5th anniversary and the site is inviting everyone to join the fun. Over the next two weeks, PokerStars be giving away lots of money for its Fifth Anniversary Celebration.

Every one million hands dealt in a cash ring game starting with hand 7,559,000,000 at about 6 PM ET today (December 22), you can win up to $4,400 based on your VIP level and the game limit you play. The way it works, you'll be playing in a game and if you are fortunate enough to play the winning hand, you stand to win quite a bit of money.

PokerStars will also be offering tons of Team PokerStars freerolls. There will be several freerolls a day with prize pools of $1,000 (10 FPP entry) and $5,000 (50 FPP entry). In these freerolls, you're going to find a lot of Team PokerStars players. Knock one of them out, and PokerStars will give you a ticket to a $215 Sunday Million event.

For all of you who like deposit bonuses, PokerStars isn't holding back during this celebration. Everyone is eligible for a 25% reload bonus, up to $150 on a $600 deposit. Full details can be found on the PokerStars bonus page.

Perhaps the coolest thing about this event is the Class of 2001 Reunion freerolls. PokerStars is inviting anyone with an active account opened in 2001 to play in one of two $25,000 freerolls. I'm hoping to track down a few of these people who have been with PokerStars since the beginning and tell you their stories. If you've been playing at PokerStars since 2001, shoot me an e-mail at the link on the right with the subject line, "Urgent: Class of 2001."

So, the next couple of weeks look to be pretty fun on PokerStars. Happy Holidays to all, and Happy Fifth Anniversary to PokerStars!
