Milestone hands among the daily Christmas Festival goodies

What are you doing for the next eight minutes?

That's all the time it takes for you to hit one of our milestone hands running on particularly days throughout our Christmas Festival.

We've had milestone hands before bit this time it's different. Rather than waiting for every millionth hand to hit, this time we're doing the same every 250,000.


Or every eight minutes.

We started these hands on December 1 and already we've given away more than $117,000. The biggest winner so far was De Imho from the Netherlands, who picked up $1,640.80 for being in the right place at the right time. In all more than 750 players received prizes spread out across 140 tables.

But there will be another milestone coming up later this month, and more chance to get a bonus for your bank roll.

All of which is revealed in our Christmas Calendar. Every day they'll be something new to give away, including another day of milestone hands sometime before December 25. The only way to find out is to keep checking our Christmas Festival page.

As Felix Schneider's put it: I wont milestone!

We couldn't have put it better ourselves.
