Absolute Poker (http://www.AbsolutePoker.com), one of the webÂs most popular and successful online poker destinations, set a company benchmark when it dealt its 100 millionth hand on Sunday March 20.
Absolute Poker celebrated the event by awarding special deposit bonuses, cash prizes and a trip to the WSOP in Las Vegas to players throughout the day and night.
ÂWe determined that the 100th Million hand was going to happen late Sunday,Â said Gian Perroni, Poker Room Manager at Absolute Poker. ÂHowever the incredible speed and pace of the action at the tables made it more difficult to determine with any accuracy. Our players knew it was happening anytime and the chat was abuzz with excitement and predications.Â
"Absolute Poker increasingly deals more and more online poker hands each and every hour. With thousands of players and hundreds of tables in action 24 hours a day it will not be very long before the company is setting yet another record," Perrroni said.
"The pace of this growth of the site http://www.absolutepoker.com is a true testament to the popularity not only of online poker, but to the proprietary technology that drives the Absolute Poker software. This has enabled us to continue our extraordinary growth."
Poker remains the hottest pastime in America, with online poker being one of the fastest growing pursuits today. This, coupled with the huge popularity of televised poker events, has generated an overwhelming interest in online poker, as clearly evidenced by this important milestone.
ÂWe are so happy that all of our loyal players had a chance to participate in the day, take advantage of our special promotions, and enjoy the event with us.Â Perroni said. ÂWe are already gearing up for a host of amazing spring promotions and tournaments that can only be called incredible.Â
