The PokerStars Road to 100 Billion promotion is soon to hit its next milestone. Celebrating the 65 billionth hand dealt, about $1 million is expected to be given to the lucky players.
On 30th March, 2011 PokerStars celebrated the 60 billionth hand milestone; it was dealt on a $5/$10 Limit Hold’em table and gave the winner ‘Pogo650’ no less than $102,090. Now, a huge amount of money is once again up for grabs in the Road to 100 Billion promotion, with the 65 billionth hand coming up.

PokerStars 65 Billion Celebration

In order to win, the only thing you need to do is to play cash games at PokerStars and be dealt into one of the milestone hands (every millionth hand between #64,700,000,000 and #65,000,000,000, say hand #64,902,000,000). If you get lucky, you receive cash reward up to thousands of dollars.

Those at the table where a milestone hand occurs get $50 after every VPP acquired during their past 50 hands. In addition, everybody actually dealt into the hand gets another $50. Winners of the milestone hands (i.e. who take the pot) get their awards doubled.

Awards:

“Dealt into Milestone Hand: (# of VPPs in previous 50 hands x $50) + $50 = Cash Prize
Win Milestone Hand: (# of VPPs in previous 50 hands x $50 + $50) x 2 = Cash Prize

Example: You play for half an hour on a $1/$2 NLHE table. You play 53 hands in this time and are then dealt into a milestone hand. The system will look at the most recent 50 hands that you've played at that table and calculate the number of VPPs earned. In this instance, you earned 31 VPPs, so the prize will be: 31 * $50 + $50 = $1,600. If you go on to win the hand, you'll receive $3,200.”

The 65 Billionth Hand or the Mega Milestone:

“When the big 65 Billion Mega Milestone is reached, all players dealt in will be rewarded $500 for every VPP earned in the previous 50 hands (calculated same as above, including the base prize of $500 for all players dealt in). The winner of the Mega Milestone will also have their prize money doubled, and will also receive $65,000 on top - which means a grand total of tens of thousands of dollars!

Dealt into Mega Milestone: (# of VPPs in previous 50 hands x $500) + $500 = Cash Prize
Win Mega Milestone: (# of VPPs in previous 50 hands x $500 + $500) x 2 + $65,000 = Cash Prize

In the event of a split pot (either from a tied hand or from a split pot game) all winners will receive a share of the $65,000 proportional to their share of the main pot of the hand.

Example: You play 26 hands and earn 17 VPPs when the Mega Milestone hand hits on your table. You will receive (17 x $500) + $500 = $9,000. The hand plays out and you split the pot with one of your opponents. Your cash prize is doubled to $18,000 and you receive half of the additional $65,000, taking your total cash prize to $50,500.”

Once the 65 Billion Celebration promotion is concluded, the next PokerStars Mega Milestone will be hand #70,000,000,000.
