Milestone Promotion at Virgin PokerThis was published 16-01-2011
Virgin Poker, the leading online poker room, is currently running a super new promotion in order to celebrate a momentous milestone – the 2.5 billionth hand dealt at the site.
This exciting promotion will see players share a prize pool of £250,000 and will start paying out cash as soon as hand 2,470,000,000 has been dealt. The competition will end with the completion of the milestone 2,500,000,000th hand.
Those players who hit the 0.02/0.04 tables and upward will put themselves in line to win some of the cash and all “marker” hand winners will win prizes which will depend on their stakes.
Players who win a “marker” hand on their way to the 2.5 billionth will win £500, £1,000, £1,500 or £2,000 depending on the stakes being played. Players need, therefore, merely be involved and do not necessarily have to win a marker hand in order to receive a cash prize. Marker hands will increase in number as the 2.5 billionth hand approaches.
All players who are dealt into the 100 hands that lead up to the 2.5 billionth hands will also be entered into Virgin Poker’s special £4,000 freeroll, details of which will be announced in due course.
The winner of the 2,500,000,000th poker hand at Virgin Casino will win a whopping £25,000 over and above the amount that they win from the hand itself. Every other player at the table will also get to share a further £25,000. Due to the fact that these amounts will apply regardless of the stakes being used at the table, players at 0.02/0.04 tables will have just as much chance of winning £25,000, or a share thereof, as those players at higher stake tables.
Players are well advised to start playing at the Virgin Poker tables as they could be in line to win a big cash prize by simply being in the right place at the right time.
