To celebrate the first anniversary of Americas Cardroom´s Beast promotion, the site is giving away $51,000 to players who try to tame the Beast during August.
Americas Cardroom´s Beast promotion is the world´s first progressive rake race in which players pay a premium at selected tables which is then added to the progressive prize fund. Players earn points for contributing to the premium, which determine their position on the monthly leaderboard and, at the end of each month, the prize fund is distributed among the top point earners.
The Beast has been a colossally successful promotion for Americas Cardroom and has paid out nearly $2 million to players over the past twelve months. Now, to celebrate the Beast´s first birthday, Americas Cardroom are adding $51,000 to the Beast promotion in the form of daily and weekly leaderboard competitions during August (which would imply that the Beast is a Leo).
How the Beast Birthday Bonus Works
The Beast Birthday Bonus will be paid out over thirty-one daily and four weekly leaderboard competitions among players who collect the most points at the Beast tables. Each daily leaderboard competition will have 10 prizes, while each weekly leaderboard competition will have 115 prizes, and the way that the Birthday Bonus is set up means that every player at Americas Cardroom has an equal opportunity to win a prize each day.
Daily Beast Leaderboard Prizes
Weekly Beast Leaderboard Prizes
The winner of the monthly Beast leaderboard in recent months has picked up in excess of $12,000 in cash bonuses, and the competition has paid as deep as 500 places – with the top 350 players collecting upwards of $75.00 and the top 500 players also winning a seat for a $55.00 satellite tournament which guarantees 10 packages to the $500,000 guaranteed Punta Cana Poker Classic next November.
Where to Find the Beast Tables
The Beast promotional tables are indicated by the initials “JP” in the Americas Cardroom NL Hold´em lobby (Beast tables also exist in the FL and PL Hold´em lobby but are often quiet) and by “Beast” in the PL Omaha lobby. Limits for the tables range from $0.05/$0.10 to $15.00/$30.00 and points collected in the daily and weekly leaderboard competitions will also count towards the monthly leaderboard standings.
Both the daily and the weekly Beast Birthday Bonus leaderboard competitions start today (Thursday 1st August) and, whereas the daily competitions start and finish at midnight each day, the dates over which the weekly competitions run are not so straightforward –
Week 1: August 1st from 00:00 EST to August 9th at 23:59 EST
Week 2: August 10th from 00:00 EST to August 16th at 23:59 EST
Week 3: August 17th from 00:00 EST to August 23rd at 23:59 EST
Week 4: August 24th from 00:00 EST to August 31st at 23:59 EST
