Sky Poker Prepares to Deal its 900 Millionth Hand

Sky Poker 900 Millionth Hand

Sky Poker is preparing to deal another milestone hand, the 900 millionth, and is celebrating with £2,000 in prizes and reward boosts on the day it occurs.

Thursday 23 April has been earmarked as the day the milestone hand will be dealt and it is on this day that players will receive a significant boost to their poker points accumulation. From Midday until 8:00 p.m, poker points will be earned at double their usual rate, then from 8:00pm until 10:00pm they will be earned at three-times the rate. The night owls among you can then earn quadruple points from 10:00pm through to midnight.

When the 900 millionth hand is dealt, everyone dealt into the hand wins a prize. Each player receives:

  • £250 in cash credit to their Sky Poker account
  • A ticket to the Viva Las Vegas £3,200 Semi Final worth £77
  • A ticket to Sunday’s Super Roller worth £110

The winner of the 900 millionth hand not only goes down in Sky Poker’s history books but also banks £550 in cash, a ticket to the Viva Las Vegas £3,200 Final satellite worth £350 and a ticket to the Sunday Super Roller worth £110.

Any real money cash, sit & go or multi-table tournament qualifies for the 900 millionth hand promotion, unlike other sites that seem to exclude non-cash tables. This means you’re equally as likely to win while sat at a £0.02/£0.04 cash game table as you are a £210 buy-in heads-up sit and go.

Head to Las Vegas with Sky Poker

The Viva Las Vegas satellite that players can win seats into is an ongoing promotion that anyone can enter. Currently, Sky Poker is running two special Vegas packages, one valued at £3,200 and the other at a cool £10,000.

The £3,200 package awards a $1,111 buy-in a tournament in Las Vegas, seven nights stay at the Palazzo, £1,000 credited to your Sky Poker account for flights or spending money and a whole host of extras including access to the Sky Poker hospitality suite.

A seat worth a cool $10,000 is up for grabs as part of the £10,000 package, which also includes 10 nights stay at the Palazzo, £1,500 in cash and the usual Sky Poker hospitality.

Feeder satellites into the £3,200 package final start as low as £1.85 with £2.80 being the lowest buy-on satellite for the £10,000 package route.

Sign up to Sky Poker via UK & Ireland PokerNews and you’ll be rewarded with a free £10 in tournament tickets and can enjoy a 200% match up to £500 bonus when you make your first deposit.
