Internet poker giant PokerStars has dealt out its epic milestone 100 billionth hand of poker this past week, giving each of the players at the table a handsome payday in the process.

In the run-up to the big hand more than 400,000 players were online. The winning table featured a $31.55 pot, which was won by Greek player Microulius69. Because his win came on the 100 billionth hand, Microulius69 took home the pot amount as well as $103,800. The other players on the table at the time of the win racked up $10,000 each as well as money for each of the VIP points that they accumulated in run-up to the hand.

The players who raked in the $10k win were: doc836: $13,440, HeyitsClay: $13,440, GlassGagguas: $13,360, MoodyMiss: $12,760, Mayers666 $12,460.

Additionally, all active players who played the same stakes and game were treated to $830,790.34. The money was doled out to 9,471 players and generated a take of $84.72 per player.

Speaking about the milestone hand, PokerStars Head of Poker Communications Lee Jones said that the celebration had doled out more than $2 million to PokerStars members. Additionally Jones said, "But the party isn't not over yet. There's a $300,000 World Record attempt taking place this Sunday which costs just $1 to enter, a $1 million guaranteed Zoom tournament on 23 June, and a $1 million Golden Sit & Go promotion (17-23 June)."
