25 Billion Bash: 16 to go

Wow.

It has been quite an afternoon. Throughout the day, we have see around a quarter million people trying to hit the milestone millionth hands. We're now just 16 hands away from hitting the big one, and when we do, it's going to be a doozy.

The winner will automatically get $100,000. He or she will also pick up:

  • $100,000 in cash
  • European Poker Tour Monte Carlo Grand Final package
  • PokerStars Caribbean Adventure package
  • World Series package
  • World Championship of Online Poker Main Event ticket
  • After 131 milestone hands, PokerStars has already given away $286,591.35 to 789 winners. Among those people is PokerStars jlclark311. He won more than $1,250. Normally a tourney player, he just happened to be playing cash when his milestone hand hit.

    "The extra cash couldn't have come at better time," he said. "I have been planning a Vegas trip for my girlfriend's 21st birthday. With the cash I won, we will be booking the Wynn! Thanks Pokerstars!"

    Player 5iveofaKind also picked up some free cash. He already plans for it.

    "I'm probably just gonna invest it wisely.. well, maybe just donk it off at the tables," he said.

    It won't be long before we're writing about the big hand hitting. Keep it right here for all the news that's fit to blog (see our 25 Billion Bash coverage for previous winners).
