PokerStars 10th anniversary: Milestones hitting now!

10th-ann-thumb.JPGDo not be alarmed. Do not rush for the exits. Remain calm. All is well.

Relaxed? Okay. Now, peep this: the PokerStars 10th Anniversary Road to 100 Billion special is hitting like crazy right now.

As we told you a few days back, as part of the on-going 10th anniversary celebration, PokerStars is hosting a special milestone hand promotion. Just like the recent 70 billionth hand party, this special celebration will give away money for every million hands between 71,770,000,000 and 72,000,000,000. Everyone dealt into the mega milestone 72 billionth hand will get at least $10,000.

Those milestone hands are already hitting. Just log on to PokerStars and you can see in the corner of the lobby when the next hand will be hitting.


If you'e a frequent PokerStars player, you probably know how this works. In case you don't, here's a quick primer:

  • Awards are based on how many VPPs a player has earned on any table that gets dealt into a milestone hand. That's explained on the Road to 100 Billion Examples page.
  • In all, more than $750,000 will be awarded to more than 1,000 players.
  • Whoever hits hand number 72,000,000,000 will win at least $20,000.
  • Please be aware that in the run-up to the big 72,000,000,000th hand, PokerStars will shut down heads-up games for a few hours. The folks behind the scenes apologize if your favorite games are available to you at that time, but it is what it is. Gotta be done.

    For more information, visit the Road to 100 Billion special page.

    Now, get on PokerStars and get to work. Time is wasting!
