There are milestones in every business, but in a competitive one like online poker, reaching the fifth anniversary is certainly one to celebrate. Not only does Everest Poker have five years under its belt, but it reaches that point at the top of its game (so to speak) and as one of the most trusted and popular websites in the world.
In celebration of the fifth anniversary, Everest is offering numerous promotions, but one of the most exciting is the 5 Billion Hands. On March 4, 2005, the ten millionth hand was dealt, and the 100 million mark was hit on January 1, 2006. April 17, 2007 marked the 1 billionth hand, and the site is now quickly coming up on reaching the five billionth hand dealt since its inception.
There are several ways for Everest poker players to win as part of the celebration when the moment hits. Every player at the table where the five billionth hand is dealt will win $5,000 in cash, no strings attached and winning the hand is not necessary. That gives every single Everest player the chance to win!
Also, since the milestone looks to hit before the end of August, there is another chance to win through August 31. If you are holding a hand that makes quad 5’s in a real money ring game, with at least one of those fives as one of your hole cards, you will be given 55,555 Summit Points automatically. Points can be used for prizes in the Everest store or tournament entries - any number of options - and that many points is an extremely valuable asset on the site. All the player needs to do is notify Everest Poker via an e-mail with the hand ID number, and upon verification, the points are yours.
Considering this is only one of five ways to win at Everest during the five year anniversary celebration, now seems like the right time to get in on the fun!
