The Beast at Americas Cardroom
The Beast at Americas Cardroom is the world's first and only progressive points rake. It's a fantastic promotion and great for all types of players, and what's more is that all you need to do to be a part of it all is play your online poker at Americas Cardroom. Every time you play at a cash game table marked 'Jackpot Table' (marked JP) you will be earning points that contribute to your position on The Beast leaderboard. The more points you accumulate the higher your position and the more cash you will be rewarded, and this leaderboard pays out twice monthly. What's even better is that you receive points, not for winning a hand, but each and every time you have contributed towards the rake in a real money Texas Holdem cash game, Omaha game, or whatever it is that you enjoy playing.
There are in fact 2 leaderboards, one for cash and one for tournament seats with both running twice monthly. Dates of the leaderboards are 1st to 15th of each month and 16th to the last day of the month. There are thousands of dollars awarded every single month and so many tournament seats it's unreal.
The Cash Race and The Tournament Race
The Beast cash race pays out twice per month and it pays big with hundreds of thousands of dollars being handed out. There is no need to 'enter' into the leaderboard competition as you will automatically be included as soon as you take a seat at a Jackpot Table. You can check your status on the leaderboard at anytime and the amount of players paid depends on the prize of the prize pool. The first place prize is capped at $20,000 which is a huge amount of cash just for playing your favorite game.
Each two week leaderboard also has a tournament race too, and this rewards players, again based on points earned, with seats in qualifiers to awesome land based events such as The Latin Series of Poker and The Punta Cana Poker Classic. The tourney race adds a different element to The Beast and this is another reason why players love it so much. The Beast is just one of a number of ongoing promotions available at the US friendly Americas Cardroom, and to get you started there's a great welcome bonus of 100% up to $1,000.
