LONDON, March 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Bodog, the world's largest betting brand*, has just dealt its billionth hand of blackjack; a world first for online casinos. As one of the first brands to offer online gaming, Bodog Casino's sheer longevity has meant this milestone is far ahead of any company in the industry.

The lucky player who was dealt the billionth hand at Bodog.com. on Friday, March 4th at 19:17:23GMT now has a big choice to make: which billionaire's experience to pick, a holiday to Fiji's exclusive Turtle Island or a trip to the Monaco Grand Prix complete with trackside hospitality on a private boat.

"There are several gaming sites who have dealt a billion poker hands, Bodog included, but to have dealt a billion blackjack hands is a very special milestone for the Bodog brand," said Mark Leighton, Bodog.com's Casino Manager. "But most importantly it's thanks to the loyalty of our players that we have got this far and that cannot be stated enough."
