Monday, July 18, 2011 :  Euro 100,000 up for grabs
The Microgaming Poker Network will be celebrating dealing its Four Billionth Hand over the next few days, and has lined up a special and lucrative promo to support the landmark event.
The network will be giving away Euro 100,000 over the course of this week, with cash rewards paid to 200 milestone hands leading up to the four billionth hand, eligible on any of the network’s real money cash tables which have at least four players in each winning hand.
Euro 60,000 in prize money will be split between players lucky enough to participate in one of the milestone hands during the lead up to defining 4 billionth hand. The winner of the hand itself will receive Euro 20,000, with a further Euro 20,000 shared amongst the other players participating in the winning hand.
Lydia Melton, head of Network Games at Microgaming, said: “Since 2003, we have been providing poker software to operators, and the four billionth hand represents a huge moment for the Microgaming Poker Network. Players across our operators’ sites have a great chance of being rewarded this week and we are expecting to see some great poker action.”
