On Aug. 9, online poker giant PokerStars announced that it&s about to reach its 85 billionth hand.
The previous milestone hand – 80 billionth – was hit in May, which means that it took the company about three months to record another five billion hands. An impressive number, indeed.
For the occasion dubbed a Mega Milestone hand, the online poker giant is giving away a million in prizes. The prize structure envisages a reward for every one millionth hand in the run-up to the 85th billion landmark, a part of the big “Road to 100 Billion” campaign.
