The PokerStars Network is the world’s largest without a doubt, and probably the most well-known too. They recently celebrated their tenth year providing online poker, and now they’re celebrating a milestone that they are about to reach. In honor of PokerStars 75 billionth hand, they are running the “Road to 100 Billion” promotion where players can win their share of a guaranteed million dollar prize pool.There is nothing complicated or confusing about the promotion either, a player must simply play at real money ring game tables. This promotion is one of the few promotions offered that has literally nothing to do with skill, and everything to do with luck. The only way to win is to be fortunate enough to be playing in a millionth hand. This means that, for example, you will win prizes if you are dealt into hand number 76,800,000,000.While you may have to rely solely on luck, if you are having a lucky day the prizes are abundant. If you are dealt into a millionth hand you will receive $20 automatically and another $60 that will be multiplied by the amount of VIP Player Points you have earned in your last 50 hands. For example, if you are dealt into a millionth hand and you have accrued 10 VPPs, you will win $20+$60×20, or another $1,200! The only bit of skill involved in this promotion is once the millionth hand is being played, because the winner gets his or her prize money doubled.The culmination of this promotion is the 75 billionth hand; anyone dealt into this hand will receive an automatic $10,000 and the ability to multiply their VPPs by $1,000! Just like with every millionth hand the winner of the milestone will see their prize money doubled. Good luck to everyone out there, and hopefully you will take home some great real money poker prizes.
