|Online gambling site BodogLife.com has announced that it is giving away cash and tournament credits to celebrate being on target to deal its one-billionth hand of poker by the end of November.|
Starting with hand 980,000,000, the Antigua-based site is to award increasing money prizes for every five millionth hand dealt, all the way up to the one-billionth hand. Every participant in a landmark hand will split cash prizes with players at the one-billionth hand splitting $10,000.
In addition, players involved in set milestone hands will receive $109 in tournament credits for use towards any BodogLife.com tournament including its weekly $100,000 Guaranteed and Player's Choice qualifiers.
'We owe it all to our players for helping us reach our one-billionth hand and we're saying thanks this November by giving away cash daily as well as tournament credits that players can parlay into a chance at winning thousands or even millions,' said Calvin Ayre, Founder and Chief Executive Officer for BodogLife.com.
'While this is an opportunity to look back at how far we've come since we launched our poker room in 2004, we're already looking forward to dealing our next billion hands. We will continue to provide players with the best online poker experience available as well as Bodog's world-class customer service.'
In addition, the site is to hold daily drawings from November 5 to 26 with ten players daily inning $50 and, once the one-billionth hand is dealt, a final grand prize draw for $12,000 paid out at $1,000 per month.
