Will you get rich today as PokerStars celebrates 60 billion hands?
I don't want to get over dramatic about these things, but today someone is going to be given a substantial amount of cash just for playing at PokerStars. And, well, that is quite dramatic. The lucky winner of the 60 billionth hand dealt at PokerStars, and it will hit a few hours from now, will pocket at least $60,000. But it could be much more, as these scenarios show.
At the time of writing (4.30am ET), we're about to hit milestone hand 59,992,000,000, meaning there will be seven more 'routine' milestone hand winners before the huge mega milestone hand falls at 60,000,000,000. Three hours, four hours? Something like that.
You can keep an eye on the current hand in the updating graphic on the PokerStars Blog homepage, or open the PokerStars software and see the countdown clock in the top right area of the lobby. There, each time a milestone hand is hit, you'll get a link to the table to watch the action.
But you want to be in the action yourself, right? Get playing on our real money cash tables now and remember, if you get lucky and are dealt into a milestone hand you receive increasing amounts of cash depending on how many VPPs you have collected recently at the table. Check the Road to 100 Billion promotion page for details.
We'll be watching all the action and have a full report of the 60 billionth hand details and winners as soon as we can.
