IntertopsPoker.com Celebrates Winner in the Billionth Hand Promotion

Lady Luck Hits at Intertops.com for one Lucky Poker Player

The Intertops.com Lady Luck was well and truly on the side of a 27 year old Finnish poker enthusiast, Petteri S. as he sat playing Texas Hold 'em on IntertopsPoker.com, when his table was handed the honor of receiving the 1,000,000,000th played hand on the network.

Petteri S. instantly won a cash prize and free entries to all guaranteed tournaments for a whole day. And if that wasn’t enough, he also received free entry to a $250,000 guaranteed tournament.

Using his alias "T-Bone-Pete", Petteri S is a new comer to the world of poker and started playing at IntertopsPoker.com just two days previously.

Petteri S said “I have only been playing poker for six months. I never imagined that I could win so big, so quickly. I started playing with Intertops.com because of recommendations online. It’s a ´big house´ with a long history online, so I thought it must be reliable. I think the poker software is also one of the best online.”

The Billionth Hand promotion was yet another Player initiative from IntertopsPoker.com, the site offering the most satellites to land-based tournaments online. IntertopsPoker.com is part of the Microgaming Poker Network, which is the fastest growing poker network on the internet.
