The largest site on the ipoker network has a great reason to celebrate. Titan Poker is about to reach an astronomical one billion hands played on the site, and it is already celebrating with cash prizes. That’s right, last week Titan hit its hand ID 950,000,000. The 950 millionth hand marked the beginning of celebrations that include cash prizes of $350,000, and will end with the anticipated billionth hand.
Titan poker has always been known for its original bonuses and loyalty programs. The popular poker site made a strategic decision straight from the beginning to devote more resources to loyal players and build up a strong brand name within the online poker community, rather than spend the same amount in offline advertising. This move has so far paid off greatly for Titan, which has been experiencing an amazing growth for years and is one of the top online poker destinations.
Continuing its winning strategy, Titan is celebrating the special event with an original bonus scheme that will benefit loyal players and the Titan community. Simply put – the more you play, the more chances you have to win. Here is the breakdown:
There are two kinds of hands which are awarded cash prizes: “Countdown hands” and “Jackpot hands”.
Starting from the 950 million mark, every 200,000th hand played is a countdown hand. The hands are counted using the consecutive hand ID’s that are used regularly by Titan, so the first countdown hand will be hand ID 950,200,000. If you are lucky enough to be playing in a countdown hand, you are already a winner, as the prize is split evenly between the winner of the hand and all other participants – so the winner takes the prize, and all other players split an identical prize between them. The bonus size depends on the table stake, so the higher stakes you play the more you stand to win. Amounts are displayed below:
|Table stakes||Winner takes:||Participants in hand split:|
Jackpot hands are basically the same as countdown hands, with two major differences: First, they occur every 5 million hands, so for example, the first jackpot hand will be hand ID 955,000,000. The second difference is the size of the prize – you guessed it, its much bigger. Here are the digits:

Winners of Jackpot hands also receive tickets to various ECOOP events. For details, visit titanpoker.com.
Players participating in the Billionth Hand, which is hand ID 1,000,000,000 (remember to check!) will also be entitled to generous bonuses celebrating this historic event (at least in terms of the online poker community). The prizes will be split between the winner and the participants of the hand. The winner will walk away with $50,000, and the rest of the participating players will split $30,000 between them. The winner will also automatically receive tickets to all ECOOP events, a package valued at $3,420.
If you thought the fun and surprises are over, think again. Titan is also offering a unique Bubble Hands Freeroll, which is offered automatically to all players participating in the hands numbered 999,999,901 - 1,000,000,000. Players of these last 100 hands before the billionth mark (including the billionth) will participate in a freeroll with a total prize pool of $10,000. There is also a $2,500 bounty on the Billionth Hand winner in this tournament, meaning that the player to knock out the winner of the billionth hand from the bubble hands freeroll receives this bonus on top of his or her winnings.
