60 Billion is a huge, almost unimaginable number – and yet, it’s exactly the number that will validate PokerStars as the biggest online poker site in the internet. If anybody has had any doubts about PokerStars being ‘huge’, then this countdown to the 60 Billionth hand will no doubt dispel those doubts. Site officials are expecting the milestone hand to occur in about eight to nine days time. They are going to hold a special celebration leading to the said milestone, one that online poker players will no doubt love.
Keep your fingers crossed
PokerStars cannot let a milestone this big pass by unnoticed, which is why they’re going to give out special prizes with each little marker leading up to the big hand. Beginning at the 59.7 billionth hand, PokerStars will be marking 300 “milestone hands” in all. Every one million hands, a prize will be given out to one lucky player and to the ones that he or she is, at that moment, playing with. The lucky player will receive $50 for each VIP player point that they earned during the previous 50 hands that they played at their then table. If you happened to be playing hard and fast, then you’re lucky. If you’ve just started playing at that table, then you’re probably the unluckiest lucky person ever.
Furthermore, if you win that milestone hand, then your prize will be doubled. Also, those who are playing at that table where the milestone hand was dealt will receive 50 dollars each.
The Big 60 Billion
Of course, if the prizes leading up to the big 60 billion are already big, then imagine how big the actual milestone hand will be. The principle of the prize distribution will be the same, except that instead of $50 for each VIP point earned, the lucky player will get a whopping $500. If he or she wins, then his prize is doubled. To sweeten matters even further, the lucky player will also get an extra $60,000. Furthermore, all the participants in the table will get $500 each It’s a huge prize that will no doubt make lots of players salivate, especially since PokerStars expects to spend more or less a million just for this promotion alone. Indeed, it’s going to be exciting holding our breaths as the 60 billionth hand draws near.
Anybody could win it. Hopefully, whoever wins will have earned lots of VIP points so that we can actually get to see a huge prize.
