    Default PokerStars Weekly News Update 8/13/2012

    1. In their quest to deal 100 Billion hands, PokerStars has been handing out major prizes every time another billion hands passes. They are quickly approaching the 85B mark, and with $1,000,000 in prizes up for grabs, it definitely pays to play at Stars. Players can earn cash via milestone hands (every millionth hand) while sitting at cash game tables. The more VPPs you have earned over the past 50 hands, the better! Stars will pay you based on these VPPs.

    2. The PokerStars Twitter account now has 100,000 followers, are you one of them? If you are, you can earn a $215 WCOOP ticket during tomorrow's #PS100k challenge. Be sure to re-tweet the PS challenge tweets to be eligible for all their prizes.

    3. Players can now qualify for the 2013 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (often referred to as the PCA) through satellites. Satellites start as low as $1.10 and build up to a $700 weekly qualifier. There are also $33 re-buy qualifiers with 1 seat guaranteed to the PCA. The package won will include a $10,300 Main Event buy-in, nine nights accommodation at the Atlantis Resort, $1,099 in travel expenses, and $1,125 in room credits for food and drinks. This is truly one of the biggest prizes available online today and can be won for as low as $1.10 or even FPPs. Check out the satellites by heading to the Special tab in the PokerStars Tournament Lobby.

    4. Those still following the PokerStars/FTP deal will be happy to know PokerStars has already paid $225,000,000 to the US government. If everything goes to plan, Stars might re-launch FullTilt by as early as October! Exciting times least for those who are able to play there.

    Check out today!
