Pokerstars 25th Billion Hand Celebrations

Right now Pokerstars is counting down to their 25th BILLION hand dealt in a cash game on their site. Ever since yesterday around 1pm they have been handing out cash to players in million-milestone hands which happen every 15 minutes or so. Here is how it works from their website:

25billion

Milestone Hands will be announced on the table with a pop-up message, before play is paused to ramp up the excitement. A host will then arrive at the table to explain exactly what’s happening. Players involved in every millionth hand dealt during the 25 Billion Bash will win the following:
Limit /  Winner / The Rest
Micro / $300 / $125
Low / $750 / $250
Medium / $1,250 / $500
High / $2,500 / $1,000

There will also be a VIP multiplier, with bonuses for the following VIP tiers:
VIP Tier / Multiplier
SilverStar / 15% Bonus
GoldStar / 30% Bonus
PlatinumStar / 60% Bonus
Supernova / 120% Bonus
Supernova Elite / 200% Bonus

For example, if you are dealt into a Milestone Hand on a Medium stakes table and win the hand, you’d receive $1,250. If you are also a Goldstar VIP, you’d receive an additional $375 (30% Bonus).

Here is what happens after one of the hands I witnessed yesterday:
