PokerStars 40 Billionth Hand Celebration Starts Sunday

Share this
Hard to believe it has been a little over eight years since the biggest online poker site, PokerStars, opened their doors and dealt their first hand. The time is drawing near for PokerStars to hit a milestone event, their 40 billionth hand and they have a big celebration planned!

Since every PokerStars player had a role in reaching this landmark, PokerStars wants to invite all players to join in the festivities when the F40 celebrations kick off, which will commemorate their 40 billionth hand in a big way!

The party starts with some very special Multi-Table tournaments, with the first one on Sunday, February 14th at 14:30 ET. With a $1 Million Dollar Guaranteed prize pool and only a $40 buy-in this is a Valentine’s Day deal too sweet to pass up! Also starting on the day for sweethearts is the series of eight special tournaments where just 40 FPPs (Frequent Player Points) will get you a seat to battle for a $40,000 prize pool! These super $40K VPP events will run every day from February 14th through February 21st, so plan now to be there for each one and play for a total of $320,000! And if you want to get in these super tournaments cheaper, you can satellite your way in for just $5.50!

Then on Sunday, February 21st at 16:30 ET, PokerStars is turning up the heat for the Sunday Million tournament! Celebrating the fourth anniversary of the popular weekly million dollar event, PokerStars will host the super special Sunday Million 4th Anniversary Edition with a whopping $4 Million Dollar Guaranteed prize pool and a first prize of at least $1 Million Dollars! And you can satellite your way in for as low as $2.20!

And for Sit n’Go fans, from February 14th through February 21th, there will be 40 player Super Sit n’ Go tournaments with buy-ins of $1.10, $11, $22 and $55. And in these super special Sit & Gos, all first place winners will receive a bonus - an extra cash prize! At the end of the promotion all first place finishers will receive a share of a $40,000 prize pool! And there will be a separate $40,000 prize pot for each Super Sit n’ Go buy-in level, for a total of a massive $160,000 in extra cash bonuses!

If you are a ring game player, don’t worry, you won’t be left out of the celebration leading up to the 40 billionth hand Mega Milestone either! Starting with hand 39,601,000,000, all players who are dealt into every millionth hand will earn a cash prize based on the VPPs they earned at the table. There will be a total of 400 milestone hands during the F40 promotion which is estimated to award over $1 Million Dollars total! That means the longer you play at a particular table, the more free cash you could win when a millionth hand hits!

And if all of that isn’t exciting enough, you can get $40 FREE CASH instantly with your VPPs! That’s right, just go to the PokerStars VIP Store and click on ‘Bonuses’ in the left menu and you can cash in 2,500 of your FPPs for $40 which will be instantly deposited in your bankroll! This special is only available from now until February 21st and is limited to one per person.

Get ready to Celebrate with PokerStars in February and get your party favors in the form of cold hard cash!
