    PokerStars are about to reach the end of the Road to 100 Billion, and to celebrate you can take a share of up to $2,000,000 in cash prizes in their biggest-ever Milestone Hand promotion! The Mega Milestone will be the never-before-seen Million Dollar Hand. The winner of hand 100BN will receive at least $100K, with those dealt in receiving a minimum of $10,000. In addition, they will receive a prize of $2,000 per VPP earned at the table in their last 50 hands! Once all prizes for the Mega Milestone have been calculated, the remainder of the Million Dollar Hand prize money will be split across all other players seated at the same game, betting structure and stake when the hand was dealt (for example: $0.10/$0.25, No Limit Hold'em). It's called the Stake Share, and it's your best ever chance of being part of milestone hand history! There will also be 300 regular milestone hands that are set to award a further $1,000,000 in prize money to ring game players. The prizes will be paid out every millionth hand from hand #99,700,000,000 onwards. For an explanation of the prize money on offer, visit the Examples page. Here are some tips on how to increase your prize money during the Milestone Hands promotion: 1. Play on more tables - If you are able to play on more than one table at a time, you will increase your chances of being dealt into a milestone hand. 2. Play longer sessions - The size of the prizes depends on the number of VIP Player Points (VPPs) you have earned while sitting at the table. Try to take a seat at a table well in advance of the next milestone hand to increase the amount of your potential prize. 3. 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. Learn more about earning VPPs on our VIP Club pages. 4. Increase your chances of winning a Stake Share, try playing at a few different games or stakes in the run up to the Mega Milestone. Real money ring games are also available on the PokerStars Mobile poker app, which means you have the chance to be dealt into a milestone hand wherever you are! Check the Mobile app page to find out how to download now. Please Note: Hands dealt on Zoom tables are not eligible for milestone hand prizes. To win a prize, you must be playing on one of our regular ring game tables. Measures have been taken to prevent the practice of speed-folding, i.e. folding all hands in an attempt to unfairly improve the chances of being dealt into a Milestone Hand. Tables that demonstrate little or no legitimate poker being played will be excluded from Milestone Hand prizes. Contact support@pokerstars.com if you have any questions about the Million Dollar Hand or any other 100 Billion Hands Celebration promotion - where a total of $5,000,000 will be awarded across all events.
    Best of Luck!

      I'm doing the same I'mJigJig

      I'll just be multitabling NLHE though running one table of 100NL, 50NL, 25NL, 16NL, 10NL, 5NL and as many 2NL tables as the system will allow me. GL!

        Yep sounds like my plan, min buy in at one table of 16-200NL norm stack at the rest and then loadsa 2NL for the last little while ... Now I begin to think about it when it gets close and I max out tables, no point putting in a full stack even at 2NL
        GL all! Would be sweet to see a PSOer at the big hand

          The wait for a table when I click find a seat is insane at 2NL-25NL, so am on waiting lists.

            I'm able to get a table at fixed limit but sometimes I have to start tables myself.

            Any idea what time the jackpot is due so I can plan on getting my tables open?

                        That was insane.

                        Also, high five to anyone who's in on the stake share.

                          Had been on two tables of 5NL for over 2 hours before the mega-hand so guess I get some stakeshare!!! Hope it at least covers the $-1.74 I dropped mass multitabling NLH,PLH,FLH,PLO ... Coulda been a lot worse.
