PokerStars signs up 20 millionth account

It will take quite an imagination to wrap your head around this one, but, frankly, it took a lot of imagination to get to this point anyway. So, stick with us here.

Imagine that every citizen of New York City, Chicago, and Los Angeles wanted to play poker. Not an easy proposition, we understand, but nothing this big ever is. And yet, that is sort of what PokerStars has managed to accomplish.

A few days back, PokerStars signed up its 20 millionth account. That is the equivalent of every one of those New Yorkers, Chicagoans, and Los Angelenos having at account on PokerStars.

The name behind the big number is "piposko." Hailing from Slovakia, piposko signed up for the milestone account on February 21. As a hat tip to the Slovakian, PokerStars slid a $215 tourney ticket into the brand new account.

So, piposko, welcome to the family!

It's a big one, but we think you'll like it here.
