Daily FastForward Rake Races Start Again at Party Poker

Fastforward Rake Race at Party PokerFrom tomorrow (Thursday), Party Poker will once again be running daily FastForward rake races, giving players the chance to win a share in a $6,000 prize pool every day. The promotion is scheduled to run only until Sunday 29th July; so, if you are a fan of fast-fold poker games, head over to Party Poker soon.  

FastForward is Party Poker´s fast-fold game. The game works in a similar way to regular 6-Max cash games except you can fast-fold your cards if you don´t like what you have been dealt and FastForward to another table, where you will be dealt into a new hand almost immediately.

Because of the fast-fold element, you can play many more hands per hour than you would in you were playing regular 6-Max cash games. The speed of action is not particularly any faster if you stay in a hand, but the format of the game gives you the opportunity to earn more cashback points, and – if you are a new player – to accelerate the speed at which you clear the Party Poker bonus.

How FastForward Rake Races Work

When you play FastForward games, rake is deducted from the pot like any other cash game. For each $1.00 you contribute to the rake, you are awarded a point towards a daily FastForward rake race leaderboard. Don´t worry about not contributing a full dollar to the rake, because fractions of points are awarded if you contribute less than a dollar.

During the current promotion, Party Poker will be running two leaderboards simultaneously. One is for players in FastForward games with blinds of $0.02/$0.05 and $0.05/$0.10. The other is for FastForward games with blinds of $0.10/$0.25 and $0.25/$0.50. Each leaderboard has its own daily prize pool and distribution of prize money:

$0.02/$0.05 & $0.05/$0.10 Games $0.10/$0.25 & $0.25/$0.50 Games
1st $250 1st $1,000
2nd $200 2nd $800
3rd $150 3rd $600
4th $100 4th $400
5th $75 5th $250
6th $50 6th $200
7th $40 7th $150
8th $30 8th $100
9th $20 9th $75
10th $10 10th $50
11th-25th $5 11th-30th $40
31st-50th $30

For the purposes of clarification, daily FastForward leaderboards run from midnight to 23:59 CET (GMT +2). You can earn leaderboard pots playing both NL Hold´em FastForward games and PL Omaha FastForward games, and you can play in both leaderboard competitions simultaneously if you wish. If you reach one of the top spots, your prize should be credited to your account within 48 hours.

What Else is Happening at Party Poker?

The daily FastForward rake races fill a gap in Party Poker´s promotion schedule between the recently-completed World Cup Click Card Championship and the forthcoming Monster Series. Due to the micro buy-ins of Monster Series events, there is no dedicated satellite schedule in place; although you can take advantage of “Centroll” satellites running around the clock to win $5.50 tournament tickets.

There is also the ongoing weekly MILLIONS Online leaderboard competition taking place, which rewards players who perform consistently in the site´s Power Series events with satellite tickets for MILLIONS Online qualifiers and satellites (unless you finish in one of the top ten positions on the “High Leaderboard”, in which case you receive a ticket for the target event itself).

There is also the usual range of missions available for players who have not yet taking advantage of this bankroll-boosting opportunity, plus seven “Get Started” missions exclusively for new players. Remember, if you play at Party Poker on a mobile, and you want to take part in any of the site´s “opt-in” promotions (i.e. “Get Started Missions”), you have to opt into the promotion from the desktop client in order for your mobile action to contribute towards your rewards.
