PokerStars is set to celebrate its 65 billionth cash game hand which will be dealt before the end of July. An estimated $1 million in prizes is to be given away on the road to the 65 billionth hand. You can check how many hands have been dealt on the PokerStars.com website or in the game client by checking the hand counter on your cash game table.
PokerStars will award prizes on 300 milestone hands on the run up to the 65 billionth hand. These milestone hands will fall on every millionth hand from 64,700,000,000 to to 64,900,000,000th.
Players dealt into one of these milestone hands win a cash prize of $50 for every VPP they earned in the previous 50 hands they played on that table, a base prize of an extra $50, and then any player that wins a portion of the main pot will have all their prizes doubled!
Next, the mega milestone will finally hit on hand 65,000,000,000. The player lucky enough to win the hand will walk away with at least $66,000. Full prize calculations for the mega milestone hand are as follows:
