The Microgaming Poker Network (MPN) is gearing up for a big milestone. Soon the network will have reached and exceeded 4 billion hands of poker played on the site.
In its run up to the big hand, MPN is going to reward the winners of 200 landmark hands, with over €100,000 being given away within the week. The Head of Network Games at Microgaming Lydia Melton said, “Since 2003, we have been providing poker software to operators, and the four billionth hand represents a huge moment for the Microgaming Poker Network. Players across our operators’ sites have a great chance of being rewarded this week and we are expecting to see some great poker action.”
When the 4 billionth hand comes up for play, MPN will award €60,000 to the players who are in on the hallmark hand. The winner stands to take home €20,000 with €20,000 more to be shared between the players who were in on the hand.
