Road to 100 Billion Poker Hands: 95 Billion

Millions of dollars in cash prizes have been given away on the Road to 100 Billion hands dealt, and this year, that journey will finally come to an end with the biggest, richest celebrations yet. But before the 100 Billion party, there are still plenty more milestone rewards to be won. The next big-money stop on the road is hand 95 Billion.

There’s up to $1,000,000 in cash to play for, and more than 300 chances to win. Simply play PokerStars cash game tables and be dealt into a millionth hand from 94,700,000,000 to 95,000,000,000 (e.g. 94,902,000,000). If you're successful, you’ll receive a cash prize that could be worth thousands of dollars. And if you're good enough to win the big ninety-five billionth hand, you will receive at least $20,000!

Find out how Milestone Hand prizes are calculated.

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 this, the final stop before we reach 100 Billion. For the 95 Billion celebration, it’s hand #94,700,000,000 to #95,000,000,000. Next up after that will be the big 100,000,000,000, so keep checking back to find out more.

The 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.
