\$700,000 Milestone Hands

PokerStars' Milestone Hands promotions always give away a ton of money to celebrate big landmarks in their poker history - but this time it's simply a Christmas gift.

From December 16, prizes will be awarded every million hands - there will be 299 regular Milestone Hands awarding \$500,000 plus the final hand will earn players a huge prize and award everyone playing at the same stakes/game a share of \$100,000.

How can I win?

Simply play cash game tables at any game and any stake. The prize you win is based on activity in the 49 previous hands at the table. Note that Zoom tables do not count for this promotion.

What are the prizes?

The prizes are as calculated and awarded as follows:

Milestone Hands 1 - 299: \$500,000 gtd
Winner of each hand: (VPPs in last 50 hands x 60) + 100 = prize in USD
Players in each hand: (VPPs in last 50 hands x 30) + 50 = prize in USD
For example, if you earn 12 VPPs in 49 hands and then win a milestone hand, you will receive (12 x 60) + 100 = \$820

Milestone Hand 300: \$200,000 gtd
Winner of the hand: (VPPs in last 50 hands x 1,000) + 4,000 = prize in USD
Players in the hand: (VPPs in last 50 hands x 500) + 2,000 = prize in USD
For example, if you earn 8 VPPs in 49 hands and then win the milestone hand, you will receive (8 x 1,000) + 4,000 = \$12,000

Stake share - everyone's a winner!

Once the prizes are calculated, the remainder of the prize pool will be shared between all players playing at the same stake, betting structure, and game type (e.g. \$1/\$2 No Limit Hold'em) at the time the 300th Milestone Hand is dealt.

This will be split according to the number of VPPs each player earned in the previous 49 hands.
