Americas Cardroom Celebrates The Beast First Anniversary

Americas Cardroom The Beast First AniversaryTo celebrate the first anniversary of the Beast progressive rake promotion, Americas Cardroom is giving away $51,000 in additional Beast Bonuses.

The Beast is just one of many valuable ongoing promotions at Americas Cardroom – the biggest poker room on the US-friendly Winning poker network – and to celebrate a year in which the Beast has paid out almost $2 million in cash prizes and tournament entry vouchers, the site is adding $51,000 in daily and weekly Beast leaderboard competitions throughout the month of August.

What is The Beast?

The Beast is the world´s first progressive rake promotion in which players participating at selected promotional tables pay a premium to the rake deducted from the pot, which is then added to the prize fund for the month. Players are then awarded points for their “contributed premium”, which determine their monthly leaderboard position.

The winner of the Beast in recent months has collected around $12,000 in cash bonuses, but players who finish the month within the “Beast Bubble” can pick up valuable prizes – last month 350th place paid $76.59 and the top 500 players each received tickets for a $55.00 qualifier in which they could win a Punta Cana Poker Classic package worth $4,100.

Promotional tables are indicated by the initials “JP” in the Americas Cardroom lobby, and are most commonly played at NL Hold´em and PL Omaha at limits from $0.05/$0.10 to $15.00/$30.00. The Beast promotion results in some of the tables being considerably loose (looser than the non-promotion tables) and disciplined players often enjoy lucrative sessions at these tables.

The Beast Birthday Bonus

The Beast Birthday Bonus consists of thirty-one daily and four weekly leaderboards for players who collect points at the Beast tables. Each daily leaderboard competition will have ten prizes, while each weekly leaderboard competition will pay 115 prizes. No additional money is being deducted from the Beast tables to pay for this promotion and, as a new competition starts daily, every player at Americas Cardroom has an opportunity to win a valuable prize.

Beast points which are earned each day will be carried forward to the weekly leaderboard competition and also count towards players´ positions on the monthly leaderboard.
