Americas Cardroom Hosts Second Million Dollar Sunday on the Eve of Black Friday’s Anniversary This April.

San Jose, Costa Rica – February 23, 2015 – It took America almost 4 years to realize a $1 million guaranteed online poker tournament. But it’ll only take another 7 weeks to see its second $1 million prize hit the felt. On the eve of the 4th anniversary of Black Friday, Americas Cardroom is hosting yet another $1 million guaranteed poker tournament. Million Dollar Sunday is set to get underway on Sunday, April 12th at 3pm ET.

It’s the last Sunday before the anniversary of Black Friday and the announcement comes the morning after Americas Cardroom held its first $1 million guaranteed tournament.

“It took a bit of time, but America has emerged from the shadows of Black Friday brighter than ever,” stated Michael Harris, spokesperson for Americas Cardroom. “With another $1 million now on the schedule, we’re inching closer to what everyone in the United States has been craving. Yes, that weekly Sunday million dollar tournament could happen sooner than you think.”

Americas Cardroom’s first $1 million guarantee, held on Sunday, February 22nd ran smoothly and saw 1,799 entries compete for a piece of the $1 million prize pool. ForTheNguyen lived true to the “win” in Winning Millions, besting the field to claim the $200,000 first place prize.

ForTheNguyen wasn’t the only big winner on Sunday. Poker player mschu1213 took first place in the $300,000 Second Chance tournament to claim $57,000. Plus, Americas Cardroom also handed out its first five WSOP packages through online qualifiers. Poker players ealFizhh, HpAsus, Pokemon Master, youareon, and duhbest each secured a $12,500 World Series of Poker prize package that includes the $10k buy-in and money for travel and accommodations.

The US-friendly site guaranteed a massive $1.5 million in tournament prize pools yesterday alone. Americas Cardroom has emerged as one of the fastest growing sites in the United States and continues to boast top marks for payment processing.

The $1 million guaranteed tournament is a testament to how big the community has grown. The announcement of another $1 million Sunday tournament just seven weeks after the first $1 million guarantee should boost the confidence of US poker players in a major way.

Satellites aren’t the only way to win a seat into the next Million Dollar Sunday Tournament. Through Americas Cardroom’s Spin To Get In feature, players can wager between $0.01 and $1 for a shot at winning a seat in the Millions. Only yesterday, 8 players spun into the $1 million GTD tournament and earned a seat for $1 or less. A total of 21 players were given a seat to the tournament since the new feature was launched.

Qualifiers for the next Million Dollar Sunday, scheduled for April 12th at 3pm ET, are now live in the Americas Cardroom tournament lobby.

The “Beast” Point Race on Americas Cardroom

How have the April 5th changes affected the Beast and the prize pool?

Last Saturday, Americas Cardroom updated their Weekly Beast Point Race to a completely Poker Room funded Jackpot, no extra fees are taken to feed the “Beast”

Play ACR Now

Get a 100% Bonus and 27% Rake back on ACR.

I was wondering how the switch to the new “Totally Free Beast Jackpot” would affect the total paid out to players.

ACR now is taking a percentage (2c from every 6c up to 24c total) of their rake to fund the Beast Jackpot and no longer charging a additional fee to play the Beast tables.

All Ring Games are now included in the Beast and now ACR will also be using the Weighted Contribution method of rake, this means whatever you actually contribute to the rake, you will get credited for it.

That too is great news for your clearing your Deposit Bonus Faster and increasing your Rake Back totals.

The last full week (ending 4/5/2014) of ACR charging the additional 25c rake per hand to fund the JP paid out a total of $36,689 in prizes to players.

Prior to the April 5th switch, The Beast paid the following during the first 3 months of 2014:

March Total Paid: $199,686 (5 week total)

February Total Payouts: $200,542 (4 week total)

January Total Payouts: $193,779 (4 week total)

January 15th to 31st Beast Race Payments (2 week race) $98,523 Paid in Cash and Tournament Seats

January 1st to 15th Beast Race Payments (2 week race) $95,256 Paid in Cash and Tournament Seats

During the first 3 months of 2014 The Beast paid out $594,007 over 13 weeks, this averaged out to around $45,692 a week.

Last weeks $36,689 was undoubtedly lower as players knew the change was coming and slowed their play.

I took some random samples of the Beast Jackpot during the first week of the change over April 5 to April 11 and here is what I found:

Keep in mind that ACR reseeds the Beast JP to start a new week, The weekly Beast runs from Saturday at 00:01 until Friday at 23:59 every week and this is only a small one week sample, but it should be indicative of how things will start to play out as time passes.

Sunday 4/6 at 8 AM $17, 707

Monday 4/7 at 6 AM $22,046 and 3PM $22,922

Tuesday 4/8 at 2:30 PM $28,261

Wednesday 4/9 at 3:30 PM $33,079

Thursday 4/10 at 6 AM $36,098 and 4:30PM $37,255

Friday 4/11 at 6 AM $40, 070

The New Week  Saturday 4/12 at 8AM started at $12,036

Overall the Jackpot increased at a rate of about $4.5K per day

The first week of the New Beast format actually paid $31,807 to players.

Compared to the 2014 average of $45,692 the Jackpot is down, but you need to realize this is now $31K that ACR is kicking back directly to their players and it is only the first week of the new format.

Under the new method ACR is now contributing a max of 24c from their rake and only when the total pot reaches $1.20, so fewer hands contribute to the jackpot now than when the flat 25c fee was charged to the players on any raked pot previously.

ACR anticipates that increased play will more than make up the difference.

It does look like play on the ring games has definitely increased and will most likely keep increasing as more players find the value that is being given.

New contribution rates

April 5th Beast Rake

I will continue to monitor the Beast Jackpot and will update you again next week.

We have worked out a special deal for all of our Readers, you can get a 100% Deposit Bonus (which clears at a rate $1 per $5 raked) and get 27% Rake back for the life of your play on Americas Cardroom by simply clicking HERE


ACR Press Release

Here is the latest announcement, directly from Americas Cardroom,

Americas Cardroom becomes a top choice for poker players looking to increase their earning potential.

ACR San Jose, Costa Rica – April 10, 2014 – Poker players who love to grind have suddenly been shunned by recent changes in the poker landscape. Some US-friendly poker sites are reducing the number of tables during multi-table play leaving a bad taste in the mouths of players and drastically affecting their earning potential. One online poker site has responded by letting the world know that it’s business as usual.

Americas Cardroom is reminding poker players that they can continue to play up to 40 tables simultaneously. That runs in stark contrast to the 4-table maximum allowed for some players at other US-facing sites.

Americas Cardroom’s VIP program remains open to everyone while certain US-sites are removing players from the program. What’s more, Americas Cardroom continues to be the top choice for poker grinders, thanks to The Beast, which awards tens of thousands in cash each week, plus free tournament seats.

“We don’t know why some poker sites are making playing poker less lucrative,” stated Americas Cardroom spokesperson Michael Harris. “Poker sites should be fighting hard to increase their player pool. Our philosophy at Americas Cardroom is to build a site that offers so many advantages. We do that with our multi-tabling capabilities. We do that with our Online Super Series, which paid out well over $1.1 million. And we do that with The Beast, which grinders absolutely love.”

Harris notes that Americas Cardroom has seen its player pool increase dramatically over the last year thanks to promotions like The Beast, as well as Sit & Crush, which awards cash and tournament seats to Sit & Go players.

But it’s not just grinders who love Americas Cardroom. The US-friendly online poker site has become a main attraction for land-based tournament players. Americas Cardroom is a main hub for live tournament seats. Players can continue to win their way to several large-scale events including the Punta Cana Poker Classic, LSOP Millions, and other Latin Series of Poker events, which run multiple times per year.

Poker players interested in joining Americas Cardroom can create a free account at Real-money players will also automatically join Elite Benefits, Americas Cardroom’s legendary loyalty program, for free.

Americas Cardroom revamps “The Beast”

Americas Cardroom has made the Beast the Best Rake race ever…

100% sign-up BONUS plus 27% Rake Back, you can't lose on ACR

Get a 100% sign-up BONUS plus 27% Rake Back, you can’t lose on Americas Cardroom…….

On April 5th, 2014,  Americas Cardroom and all Winning Poker network sites will no longer be raking a extra 25¢ from every pot, the entire Beast pool will come from the ACR portion of the rake…….

Imagine this Poker Players,

A completely free rake race that will kick back roughly 33% of their share of the rake (and has paid tens of thousands of players over 3 million dollars), 27% Rake Back Paid directly to you every week,  a 100% Deposit Bonus to boot and a Poker Room rated as the the Best option for U.S. Player withdrawals

Can you make some money on this arrangement?

If you think you can, just keep on reading,

Check out the updated Beast Rake (all limits included) schedule:

April 5th Beast Rake

What does this mean? It means ACR and all the Winning Poker Network rooms will be kicking back a additional 33% of their ring game rake to all of their ring game players. You also get 27% Rakeback…..

What games are included? Every ring game will be included in the Beast Jackpot.

Every Ring game player will have the chance to get their rake back by playing enough hands to qualify for a cash payout or a tournament seat awarded by the Beast..

This is exactly what many players have been asking for. 

For a very long time, many players on the Winning Poker Network  avoided playing the Beast Tables (they flocked to the tournament choices).

ACR and the Winning Poker Network is also going to the Contributed Rake method (all actual rake will be counted) on April 5th, this means that you will not only earn more Beast points faster, but your BONUS will clear quicker and your rake back will be higher the more you play…

I would expect to see the action at even the smallest of limits, like  the 5¢/10¢ games  starting to explode as players realize the value they will now receive while playing on Americas Cardroom.

Click Here and not only get a 100% Deposit Bonus, the Fastest U.S. cash-outs but 27% rake back too……

This is the Best Deal you could ever imagine  for a player here in the U.S.A.

Here’s the news directly from ACR:

Americas Cardroom Eliminates Fees for The Beast, Turns it into Free Weekly Points Race.

ACR San Jose, Costa Rica – March 24, 2014 – The leading US-facing online poker site announced that starting April 5th, there will be no more jackpot fee associated with The Beast, ultimately turning it into a free weekly points race. What’s more, all real money cash tables are now officially Beast tables. Players from all over the world are looking forward to this big change and are already calling it the best promotion in online poker.

“The changes to The Beast are right on the money. The players now have a true promotion, one of the best promotions I can remember in my ten-year career of online poker. The rake at Winning Poker Network is now lower than ever. In fact, as far as I know, it’s lower than any other site. When the Beast drop comes out of the rake, any Beast payout is gravy…just turns out this is a lot of gravy. With the Beast coming out of the rake, the weekly bonuses, and the VIP program, playing on the WPN is a no-brainer. The change to the Beast is HUGE for the WPN players”, stated MamaCoolj former champion in The Beast leaderboard.

Also Dusty Schmidt, Americas Cardroom Pro player stated “I think it is outstanding, the rake will be lower than anywhere else and will encourage people to play more without affecting their pot. If you are an active poker player and play somewhere else you have your head stick in sand. With the fast cashouts, VIP Programs and The Beast, Winning Poker Network is the place to grind”.

The Beast weekly competition won’t change. Each weekly contents runs from Saturday at 00:00 ET until the following Friday at 23:59 ET. But with every table now automatically a Beast table, the value of each cash and tournament prize pool is expected to grow by leaps and bounds.

What will change, however, is the jackpot fee. Americas Cardroom will foot the bill for The Beast, taking a percentage of their rake and dropping it into the weekly prize pool. At the end of each weekly period, the prize pool in The Beast is distributed to players who rank on The Beast leaderboard.

Out of every $0.06 in rake collected, $0.02 will go to feed The Beast. There’s no change to how rake is collected. The low rake players are used to at Americas Cardroom stays the same. Of the total Beast rake collected, players will receive both cash and a weekly chance at one of a variety of live events including the Punta Cana Poker Classic and LSOP Events.

Since its inception, The Beast has handed out more than $3 million in cash and tournament seats to dedicated poker players. Details on how points are awarded can be found at Americas Cardroom.

About Americas Cardroom:
Americas Cardroom joined the Winning Poker Network in 2011. The Winning Poker Network has one of the longest and trusted online names in the industry and has been in existence since 2001. Americas Cardroom accepts players from the US market and the rest of the world. Rated first place for payment processing and cashout reliability repeatedly in 2012 and 2013, Americas Cardroom offers outstanding customer service and a friendly environment for all poker players around the world.

ACR announces Sit and Crush to become a Weekly Point Race



San Jose, Costa Rica – January 29, 2014 – It’s not just The Beast’s roar that’s making big noise each week at Americas Cardroom. Just days after announcing that The Beast is moving to a weekly format beginning February 1st, the leading online poker site today announced that its Sit & Crush tournament points race is also moving to a weekly format.

Just as I thought, ACR and the Winning Poker Network announces weekly Sit and Crush races.

I noticed a couple of days ago that there were LSOP Millions seat tournaments for the Beast and Crush Races added to the schedule every Sunday starting in February and were now awarding 5 LSOP Seat Package’s each.

I knew that things were changing, but wanted to wait for the official announcements.

This will loosen things up a bit and give more players a chance at rewards for their efforts……

The Official Press Release:

“More players, rewarded more often – in cash games and in tournaments,” said Americas Cardroom spokesperson Michael Harris. “That’s been our goal for a long time and today we’re making the move to make our two big point races the most lucrative in all of online poker.”

Like the new weekly Beast competition, Sit & Crush gives poker players a new chance to race to the top of a leader board for cash prizes and tourney seats each week, just by playing in qualifying Sit&Go tournaments. Each weekly race runs from Saturday at 00:00 until the following Friday at 23:59. Poker players who win a cash prize will see the money paid into their account by end-of-day every Monday. Any tournament seat wins are paid out on the Sunday following the cash prize payout.
