It’s time again for another promotional period on the Road to 100 Billion Poker Hands at PokerStars. For this 80th Billion hand milestone, PokerStars is giving away money to the lucky players who play on every millionth hand starting at 79,700,000,000 and ending at 80,000,000,000. There is up to $1 million up for grabs. There are 300 Milestone Hands in total for this promotion, which money awarded to players dealt into each millionth milestone hand (eg 79,706,000,000) and extra money for the winner of that hand.
The Mega Milestone 80th Billion (80,000,000,000th) hand is extra special, with PokerStars awarding all players dealt into that specific hand $10,000 plus an additional $1,000 for every VPP earned during their previous 50 hands. The winner of this one hand will then have that amount doubled! This will generate a grand prize of tens of thousands of dollars!

The epic 80th Billion hand is predicted to hit on Sunday, May 6th. This is also the opening day for PokerStars’ 4th annual Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP) tournament series. Be sure to play regular ring game tables during this time for your chance at the fabulous prizes, as tournament and Zoom Poker hands are not part of this promotion.
