PokerStars 90 Billionth Milestone Hand Information and Tips

Road to 100 Billion Poker Hands: 90 Billion

PokerStars is on the Road to 100 Billion, and we're celebrating every 5 billionth hand dealt with a milestone hand promotion! The next stop on the way is hand 90 Billion, which is set to be dealt soon!

There’s up to $1,000,000 in cash to play for, and to be in with a chance of being a winner, simply play PokerStars cash game tables and be dealt into a millionth hand from 89,700,000,000 to 90,000,000,000 (e.g. 89,902,000,000). If you're successful, you’ll receive a cash prize that could be worth thousands of dollars. If you're good enough to win the big ninety billionth hand, you will receive at least $20,000!

Milestone Hand Tips:

Play on more tables - If you are able to play on more than one table at a time, you will increase your chances of being dealt into a milestone hand.
Play longer sessions - The size of the prizes depends on the number of VIP Player Points (VPPs) you have earned while sitting at the table. Try to take a seat at a table well in advance of the next milestone hand to increase the amount of your potential prize.
Loosen up - you earn VPPs every time you contribute to a raked pot. The more pots you play in, the more VPPs you will earn.

You can learn more about earning VPPs on our VIP Club pages.

There will be 300 regular milestone hands, and a final Mega Milestone in each Road to 100 Billion celebration. For the 90 Billion celebration, it’s hand #89,700,000,000 to #90,000,000,000. Next up after that will be 95,000,000,000, so keep checking back to find out more.

The big 100 billion Milestone will hit in 2013, and you can expect some huge additions to the amount of cash on offer - watch this space!

Please Note: Hands dealt on Zoom tables are not eligible for milestone hand prizes. To win a prize, you must be playing on one of our regular cash game tables.

Check the PokerStars Blog to find out what happened on the last Mega Milestone hand at 85 Billion.

Real money ring games are also available on the PokerStars Mobile poker app, which means you have the chance to be dealt into a milestone hand wherever you are! Check the Mobile app page to find out how to download now.

Hey Marvin,

Next time you are playing, just look at the hand number for your current hand. The promo starts with hand number 89 700 000 000.

Hi Marvin - you can also open any cash table and see the current hand number - you don't even have to join the table.

I have just played 'PokerStars Hand #89577251175' so it looks like there are a few to go yet.I don't know how quickly they will come round, but if I see they have started while I am online I will post it here.

Good luck

I believe this is misleading.

It does not count all the VPPs you have earned whilst you have been at the table. It counts VPPs you've earned recently at the table.

I can't remember how it's done, but I do remember it took a lot of digging and small print reading to find out.

Fpr the last milestone series the hands that counted were the previous 49 hands and the milestone hand itself. The hands must bev at the milestone table and are the last hands dealt. Thus if you sit out for a few hands, those are counted in calculating the bonus.

Hope this helps

Yep. 49 hands rings a bell.

So, the tip should be 'Play sessions of around 40 minutes'

I think they must have hit the first hand of this promotion in the last couple of hours.

Promo is now up and running - good luck PSOers!
