The Billionth

The Billionth

Keep one eye on the counter!


Winamax will soon see its billionth hand played at a real money cash game. To celebrate, we are giving away a minimum of €100,000 to be shared out over 101 “Jackpot” hands!
 

Starting with the 990,000,000th hand played, a jackpot will be awarded every 100,000 hands. Each player playing the Jackpot hand will be rewarded according to the number of Miles they have earned at that table. The longer your session at the table in question, the bigger your prize will be!

To help you see when the next Jackpot is coming, the hands will be counted down in the Winamax lobby as well as at the real money cash game tables.

 

The three types of Jackpot hand

 

  • 100,000 Jackpot hand  every 100,000 hands (990,110,000 / 990,200,000 / 990,300,000)
     
  • Million Jackpot hand every million hands (990,000,000 / 991,000,000 / 992,000,000)
     
  • The Billionth Hand

How your Jackpot is calculated:
 

  • For each 100,000 Jackpot hand
    • Price for winning hand = €100 x √Miles / V 
    • Other players’ prize = €50 x √Miles / V 
       
  • Sur chaque main Jackpot Million
    • Price for winning hand = €600 x √Miles / V 
    • Other players’ prize = €200 x √Miles / V 
       
  • The Billionth Hand
    • Price for winning hand = €7,500 x √Miles / V 
    • Other players’ prize = €1,500 x √Miles / V 


MILES
= the number of Miles earned by each player at the table from the beginning of their playing session with the exception of bonus Miles awarded by Happy Hours.
V =
speed at which Miles are accumulated (according to the VIP status: 1.25 for VIP Bronze, 1.5 for VIP Silver etc.)

 

  • Example

    Hand #993,000,000 (Million Jackpot) is played at the NL50 table “Athens 04” with three players at the table.

    • Player One wins the hand. He has earned 65 Miles at this table and is VIP Gold (Miles multiplier of 2). He is awarded a jackpot of: 600 x √65 / 2  = €3 420,53
       
    • Player Two has earned 17 Miles at this table and is VIP Aluminium (Miles multiplier of 1). He is awarded a jackpot of: He is awarded a jackpot of: €200 x √17  = 824,62
       
    • Player Three has earned 78 Miles at this table and is VIP Diamond I (Miles multiplier of 3). He is awarded a jackpot of: 200 x √88 / 3  = €1 019,80

If at least €100,000 has not been awarded after the Billionth hand is played, the “100,000 Jackpot” and “Million Jackpot” hands will continue until the €100,000 guarantee has been paid out to players.

WARNING: only players who are dealt cards on the exact Jackpot hand will be rewarded. Any player sitting-out at the beginning of the hand (a player in the process of rebuying for example) will not receive a jackpot.
