To encourage players to help test-drive its new poker platform, Americas Cardroom is hosting six freeroll tournaments with Step 5 Venom tickets as prizes.
Americas Cardroom – the flagship poker site on the Winning Poker Network – is in the final stages of testing its new poker platform before its scheduled launch next week. Keen to test the platform with as many players as possible, Americas Cardroom running a promotion in which fifty-four players will win Step 5 Venom tickets.
The tickets are being given away across six freeroll tournaments that will be played tonight (Tuesday), tomorrow, and Thursday starting at 17:00pm ET and 19:00 ET – each freeroll awarding a ticket to the nine players that reach the final table. To put a value on the prizes, if you were to buy-in directly to Step 5 of the Venom Steps promotion, it would cost you $215.01.
How to Win Your Free Venom Steps Ticket
The six freeroll tournaments will be played on the beta version of the new poker platform. Therefore, if you have not already downloaded “ACR V2”, you will need to visit Americas Cardroom and click on the blue link at the top of the Home Page. Clicking on the link and downloading the software will install a new app on your computer – it won´t overwrite any ACR software you already have installed.
Once the installation of ACR V2 is complete, you need to register a play money account on the new platform. Do not use your existing ACR real money credentials to log in. The play money account should use an email address unique from your real money account and – for your online security – always use a unique password when creating any online account.
The new platform is very similar in design and feel to the existing ACR platform, so you should have no difficulty in navigating through the new software to find the freeroll tournaments listed under the “Freeroll” tab in the “Tourney” lobby. We recommend giving yourself plenty of time to download and install the new platform and register a play money account as the tournaments have short late registration periods.
If the cards fall kindly for you and you win a free Venom Steps ticket, you will have to claim the ticket manually. This involves contacting Americas Cardroom´s customer support and providing them with details of your existing account and play money account (obviously not the passwords). We assume there will be IP checks to ensure the claim is authentic, after which the Venom Steps ticket will be added to any tournament tickets you already have in your existing ACR real money account.
A Great Opportunity to Qualify for the Venom
The Winning Poker Network´s $5 million guaranteed Venom event is scheduled to start on Tuesday 16th July. Although the start date is more than two months away, over two hundred players have already booked their seats in the target tournament by qualifying via the Network´s extensive satellite schedule or the Venom Steps promotion. Players who win a free Venom Steps ticket in an ACR V2 freeroll tournament will only be two steps away from joining the existing qualifiers.
If you fancy you could take advantage of this opportunity, it is important that you already have a real money account with Americas Cardroom for the site to credit you with a free Venom Steps ticket. Therefore – if you have not already got an account with Americas Cardroom – be sure to create your real money account using the ACR bonus code “[bonuscode room=”americascardroom”][/bonuscode]” during the registration process before downloading the beta version of the new poker platform.
