PokerStars set to deal 75 billionth hand

ps_news_thn.jpgThe Road to 100 Billion is not a short one, but there are fortunately a lot more stops along the way there these days. They are rest stops where we can take a break, consider the trip ahead, and, indeed, win a lot of money.

PokerStars announced this morning that, just a couple of months after awarding big money for the 72 billionth hand, it will once again hand out milestone prizes during the celebration of its 75 billionth hand.

Sometime within the next couple of weeks, the 75 billionth poker hand will come out of PokerStars virtual dealer. PokerStars has set aside a million bucks as part of the promotion. Every millionth hand between 74,700,000,000 and 75,000,000,000, someone will walk away with some extra cash. Whoever wins the 75 billionth hand will pick up at least $20,000.

This is, of course, not the first time something like this has happened. After realizing how much fun it players were having in the big promotions, PokerStars started throwing regular parties for the big hands. The winner of the 70 billionth hand took home more than $70,000. Just a couple of months ago during the 10th Anniversary celebration, the winner picked up $24,300 just for being in the right place with the right hand at the right time.

See you at the next rest stop on the Road to 100 Billion!
