Internet poker giant PokerStars is about to deal out its 100 billionth hand sometime in the very near future in what will be a lucrative hand for those involved.
PokerStars has reported allocated more than $5 million in order to set up promotions for this milestone hand and its run up. The month of June will feature various promotions to coincide with the big hand. As an example, the firm will hold a $1 million guaranteed tournament based on the company's Zoom poker fast play product, various "Golden" Sit N' Go tables, and a $1 million free roll tournament.
As with other previous milestone hands, PokerStars will roll out $1 million for the 100,000,000,000th hand, with the winner taking home $100,000. Everyone else at the table will get $10,000 and an additional $2,000 for every VIP point earned during the past 50 hands dealt.
As an added incentive, players who are online with the PokerStars client will divy up the rest of the $1 million pie.
