Written By: PokerNet.com | August 14, 2012 | Posted In Poker News

PokerStars is certainly back on the Road to 100 Billion this week and they will be dealing their 85-billionth hand within the next seven days. The online poker site celebrates each time they get five billion hands. They do this by awarding their players with cash prizes for being dealt into every millionth hand.

The 300 milestone hands will be set to pay out players from 84,700,000,000 to 84,999,000,000. They also have the final 85,000,000,000 hand set at $20,000 to be awarded to one player. This final hand is projected to be dealt of the afternoon of August 19, Sunday.

Players will be in for lots of cash prizes by playing their real-money ring games in the next few days. PokerStars’ first milestone hand was expected early today, August 14th. They’re expecting to award more than $1,000,000 during the course of their promotion.

For players to increase their chances in being dealt into a billion milestone hand and win more money, they can first play more tables. The more tables they play in, the greater chances they have in being dealt into a milestone hand.

Another strategy would be to play for longer sessions. The amount of the prize will depend on the amount of VIP Player Points a player has earned at a table. Taking a seat in the next milestone in advance will maximize their reward.

Lastly, players need to loosen up and earn more VPPs every time they get a hit in a raked pot. The more pots they play, the more VIP Player points they have. Zoom poker hands will not be included in the promotion. This means players must be in real-money ring game tables to get a chance in getting a milestone hand.
