Americas Cardroom has extended a “re-activation” $1,000 reload bonus to all players ahead of a potentially huge overlay in its “Winning Millions” tournament.
Americas Cardroom´s $1 million guaranteed “Winning Millions” tournament is less than three weeks away and, in order to attract back players who have not played on the site for a while, Americas Cardroom offered a $1,000 “re-activation” reload bonus to selected players by email last week.
When word got around about the offer, several existing players were justifiably upset that it had not been extended to them. After listening to the players´ complaints, Americas Cardroom took the decision to extend the reload bonus to all players, and now everybody can benefit from the promotion.
How Much Overlay in Winning Millions?
The “Winning Millions” tournament is scheduled for Sunday 14th December and Americas Cardroom needs 2,000 players to register for the $540.00 buy-in event in order to break even. At the moment that level of participation is a distant dream, as less than 300 players have qualified so far through the site´s extensive satellite program.
It is yet to be seen how many players take their seats through other routes to the target event – such as the “Millionaire´s Club Bonus Offer” – and there is likely to be a substantial number of players who take advantage of the five hours of late registration before committing a significant portion of their bankroll to the $1 million guaranteed tournament.
Americas Cardroom has also recently announced that the Winning Millions tournament will be the highlight of their forthcoming Online Super Series IV – nonetheless, it is going to take a gargantuan effort by the site to avoid a substantial overlay in the biggest poker tournament to be open to players from the US for more than three years!
Americas Cardroom Offers Three Levels of Reload Bonus
Along with the biggest US-friendly poker tournament for three years, Americas Cardroom is also offering the biggest reload bonus on offer at present – anywhere! The bonus has been structured in such a way to allow the biggest depositors to earn a bigger bonus and have more time to clear it.
Consequently, players who deposit up to $100 into their Americas Cardroom accounts will only be eligible for a 100% match bonus and have thirty days in which to earn the Award Points needed to clear it. Players who reload their accounts with deposits of between $101 and $200 will be eligible for a 150% match bonus and have forty-five days in which to earn the points, while those depositing between $201 and $500 will be able to take advantage of a 200% match bonus, and have one hundred days to clear it.
The bonuses are cleared at a rate of $5.00 per 120 Award Points (marginally better than the first depositor´s clearance rate) which equates to a rakeback rate of 21% and, in order to qualify for the reload bonus, players must enter the Americas Cardroom bonus code “WINNING” when making their reload deposits. The “Winning Millions” reload bonus offer is available until December 31, 2014.
Potentially $2,000 Americas Cardroom Bonus for New Players
The combination of Americas Cardroom´s welcome bonus and the “Winning Millions” reload bonus means that new players to Americas Cardroom could potentially benefit from $2,000 in free poker money. As only one bonus can be cleared at a time, new players will have to get in quickly to redeem the first deposit bonus of 100% up to $1,000 before the end of December before making a subsequent deposit (of $500) to take advantage of the “Winning Millions” reload bonus.
Free poker money is not the only reason for playing at Americas Cardroom. The site has a weekly “Beast” rake race which distributes thousands of dollars to hundreds of players each week. The site also has a Sit n Go leaderboard promotion – “Sit & Crush” – which is being topped up by $2,500 in added prize money until the end of February, and has one of the best VIP rewards programs in the industry.
Americas Cardroom has also recently hosted two editions of the “Cage” – an incredible $5,200 buy-in multitable cash game – with two more editions scheduled for November 26 and December 10, and then there is the “Winning Millions” tournament itself – one million good reasons why you should be playing at Americas Cardroom today.
