One of the web's most popular and successful online poker sites, is days away from setting a new company benchmark when it deals its 100 millionth hand. As this milestone approaches, the excitement is building -- Absolute Poker players are getting ready to win cash prizes that commemorate this event.
Absolute Poker progressively deals more and more online poker hands each and every hour. The pace of this growth is a true testament to the popularity not only of online poker, but to the proprietary technology that drives the Absolute Poker software, which has seamlessly enabled this impressive achievement. Surrounding this event, Absolute Poker will begin awarding a schedule of cash prizes to qualifying tables, plus an all expenses paid trip to the 2005 World Series of Poker Final in Las Vegas.
'100 million hands is truly a phenomenal achievement when you stop to think about it,' said Gian Perroni, Absolute Poker's Cardroom Manager. 'Our players have been extremely loyal. The prize schedule for the day will offer various cash in hand prizes when the 100 millionth hand is dealt, plus prizes leading up to and after the 100 millionth hand. We'll also be randomly selecting one lucky player to join Team Absolute at the WSOP in Las Vegas.'
