PokerStars Prepares for 100 Billionth Hand Promotion
It’s certainly a milestone in poker with the world’s largest poker site approaching 100 billion dealt hands in its years of existence. There will be $5 million dollars in prizes awarded throughout different special promotions covering both ring games, SNGs and tournaments. Players dealt in the winning hand to grab a share of $1 million with the winner to take a minimum of $100k.
The promotion period is expected to last over the next six weeks and player traffic spikes on the site as the hand approaches.
With the 95th billion hand occurring in late February, the big 100th is expected near the end of June. Currently, the site has dealt over 98,291,000 hands.
The promotions will run over the next six weeks, though specifics have yet to be announced.
