PokerStars Road to 100 Billion: 85th Billionth Hand To Be Dealt On Sunday!

PokerStars Road to 100 Billion
Share this

The Road to 100 Billion started…almost 85 Billion hands ago at PokerStars. And the world's largest online poker site has turned it into a cash promotion. Players who are dealt into milestone hands along the road receive free cash with over $1,000,000 having been awarded along the road to the 85th billionth hand.

Every millionth hand dealt, starting from hand 84,700,000,000 right up to 85,000,000,000, awards cash to players that are seated in the game. Make sure you are playing real money cash games in order to pick up some folding green in the event that a milestone hand is dealt at your table.

ZOOM tables are not eligible for the milestone hand promotion, only regular cash game tables qualify.

A milestone hand will award each player a cash prize of $60 for every VIP Player Point (VPP) they earned in the last 50 hands that were played at their table and that includes the milestone hand. Players also receive a base prize of $20. Of course the more you play, the better your reward which is always the case in all promotions.

The formula used to award the cash prizes:

  • Dealt into Milestone Hand: (# of VPPs in last 50 hands x $60) +$20 = Cash prize
  • Win Milestone Hand: (# of VPPs in last 50 hands x $60+$20) x 2 = Cash Prize

Here's an example of what you could win: If a milestone hands hits at your table and you have earned 31 VPPs in the last 50 hands, and everyone goes all-in, but you lose the hand, then you would win $1,880 (31 * $60 + $20) but if you win the hand in this same example, you would win $3,760.

The Mega Milestone hand will be the 85 billionth hand dealt on PokerStars. Everyone dealt into the hand will be rewarded with a massive $1,000 for every VPP earned in the previous 50 hands! There's more; the base prize is increased to $10,000 and PokerStars has guaranteed that the winner of the Mega Milestone hand will be awarded no less than $20,000!

  • Dealt into Milestone Hand: (# of VPPs in last 50 hands x $1,000) +$10,000 = Cash prize
  • Win Milestone Hand: (# of VPPs in last 50 hands x $1,000+$10,000) x 2 = Cash Prize

If you earned 60 VPPs over the past 50 hands and the Mega Milestone hits at your table and you go on to win the hand, you could be stacking up life-changing money, a colossal $140,000 regardless of the stakes you are playing!

Over $1,000,000 will be paid out as prizes as 301 milestone hands are dealt - including the Mega Milestone. There are hundreds of chances to win money leading up to the 85th billionth hand which PokerStars has estimated to hit on Sunday, August 19th.

Real money cash games are available on the PokerStars Mobile App, you can play the milestone hand promotion from anywhere, don't be left out of the action and cash prizes!
