When Pokerstars announce that another mega milestone will soon be reached,up to 300,000 players log in to get a piece of the payout pie.
The next mega milestone hand is the 80 Billionth hand and there will be payouts along the way for 300 regular Milestone Hands beginning with hand number 79,700,000,000 and ending with hand 79,999,000,000
Some of the tips given by PokerStars are to multi-table: The more tables you are seated at, the greater your chance of being dealt into a milestone hand. Play for longer: Cash prizes during milestone hands are awarded based on the amount of VIP Player Points (VPPs) earned during your time at that table. Loosen up: You earn VPPs every time you contribute to a raked pot. The more pots you play in, the more VPPs you will earn.
It is recommended you login and find a table at least an hour before the first milestone hand will hit or you may struggle to find a seat. One winner from a previous milestone hand was multitabling on 24 tables!
The site is literally buzzing when a hand is due to hit. It's wise to keep an eye on the hand numbers in the top left hand corner of your table; you wouldn't want to fold on the lucky hand!
When a milestone hand does hit a table, everyone is all in and hoping they win the hand. The winner will receive a sum based on hands played and VIP points earned since they sat down at the table multiplied by a set sum. This can mean that some players can earn a lot of cash for a small buyin to a hand. The figures vary based on the table blinds and as previously mentioned, the hands and VIP points played.
If you have yet to experience Pokerstars when the mega milestone hands are being dealt, I highly recommend that you login and play. The air is literally electric.
