November 2014 Poker Promotions – How the 1 Billionth Hand Promotion Works

This promo is divided into three sections.

First, the concept of ‘Golden Sit N Goes’ returns (17th through 24th). These are regular games which randomly have bigger prize pools, up to 6x for day-to-day play, and up to 20x for special ‘milestone’ games.

Second, there are improved guarantees for the regular tournaments which come under the ‘bigs’ and ‘hots’ categories. You will also find these games give away extra prizes randomly during the first 40 minutes of play. Up until the last weekend of the promotion, the prize pools get 50% added (which is still significant for many of them). On the 29th and 30th these are doubled and trebled respectively.

Third, there is a huge celebration for the 1 Billionth Tournament itself. This takes place on the 30th November, and has a guaranteed prize pool of $2 million, with $200k in extra random prizes also being given away. You can qualify for a seat in 1000’s of satellite games, or you can buy in directly for $109.
