        Just play as many tables as you can for as long as you can. Try to not change tables if possible. Sounds like the 60 billionth hand winner wins atleast 60K regardless of how many VPP's they have at the table. Every millionth hand the more VPP's you have at the table the more you win if you are dealt the millionth hand.

        This is kind of like playing the lottery. If you play 20 tables at a time you increase your odds 20x, but even then that is what, like 20/40,000 (00.05%) hands played every thirty seconds to a minute lol.

          I did not read the promotion yet, but in the past the amount won was based on earned FPP's. So I would suggest playing as long as you can as many tables as you can and like other posted stated stay on the same tables it's gonna be like hitting the daily number just luck.

            When do they expect the first milestone hand to be dealt?

              I find Tigersblood and Redbull help but you might need something more extreme.
              Remember last time a lot of the hands where on 50NL and up,so chasing it will cost you more than
              anything.

              Go one lvl below what you usually play and play as many tables as you can.
              Im just going to continue on like normal.

                At what level where the most wins?
                At around what time were the most wins?

                Was there a list somewhere?

                I love to put all the stats and odds in my favor

                  PokerStars is on the Road to 100 Billion hands and we'll be celebrating every 10 billion with a milestone hands promotion! The first stop on the way is hand 60 Billion, which will be dealt before the month of March is over.

                    The majority of hands being dealt every minute seem to be play money tables. I wonder what happens if the 60billionth hand is dealt on a play money table?!?!?!

                        I know you can't win the promotion prizes on play money tables. My question is, does pokerstars count real money hands AND play money hands equally? 45,000 tables playing right now and even more hands being dealt every minute... are all those tables and hands real money??? Or are they counting play money tables/hands dealt?

                        The promotion rules don't really clarify that as far as I can tell.

                          To cash in a milestone hand you need to be earning fpp's, so cash tables would be the only place where such hands are dealt.

                              You guys didn't answer my question...

                              When Pokerstars says 60 billion hands have been dealt, are they saying 60 billion REAL MONEY hands have been dealt, or do they mean 60 billion hands of any kind have been dealt including mtt's sng's and play money?

                              ^Please someone answer this^




                              Below is an attempt to clarify the same question when I tried to ask it in my last post. Don't worry about it until you answer the above question please!

                              ...does pokerstars count real money hands AND play money hands equally?...
                              What I mean by this question is are they both counted in the hand history #. The hand history # counts how many hands have been dealt. If your hand was the 59 billionth hand dealt, your hand history number would be 59,000,000,000. Play money tables have hand histories, and they have hand history numbers. So my question is, does pokerstars count both real and play money hands and combine both of them together to get the total number of hands dealt at Pokerstars? And if so, what would happen if the 60 billionth hand was dealt on a play money table... nothing? No prize for anyone?
