In a move which reflects the massive interest in online Poker it has been confirmed that Titan Poker has dealt its 1,000,000,000 hand after launching a competition when it recently reached 950,000,000 hands. The ‘deal’ came about on the 27th May and while the company celebrated it was a player by the name of ‘wootrigged’ who was shouting the loudest after bagging a $55,000 bonus!
He was the recipient of the 1,000,000,000 hand and all other players at his tables received payments of $5,000 each. This brings the total prize money in this so called ‘Billionth Hand Promotion’ to $420,000 and marks a massive milestone in the company’s progress.
While the move was obviously beneficial to those players lucky enough to be at the table when the hand was dealt, it was actually a very clever promotion by Titan Poker. They introduced online software which allowed players to monitor the hand count and receive alerts as the ‘big hand’ approached. This saw a massive increase in the number of players over the last few weeks and increased the membership base substantially.
When you consider the size and competition in the industry, this milestone is even more impressive for Titan Poker.
