In the PokerStars promotion "Road to 100 Billion Hands" they are giving away money every time five billion hands have been played and the next stop is 85 billion hands. If you are the one who wins hand 85 billion, you win at least $20,000!
But it's not just the one who wins number 85.000.000.000. From 84.7 billion hands, each player participating in a pot of millionth hand will win a cash price. So if you are playing in hand number 84,853,000,000 you will also win money and how much you win depends on how many VPPs you have earned in the last 50 hands.
- Have you been in a Milestone hand as they are called, you will win (your number of VPPs in the last 50 hands x $60) + $20 = your price.
- Win a Milestone hand, and you will win (your number of VPPs in the last 50 hands x $120 + $20) x 2 = your price.
As you understand, it is advantageous to play many tables to try to be in as many pots as possible and thus bring in one or more Milestone hands.
