Americas Cardroom Bonus Deal

Here’s the official announcement direct from WPN:

San Jose, Costa Rica – February 1st, 2016 – If you’ve noticed more traffic at the Winning Poker Network tables, you’re not imagining things. The US-facing online poker network today surpassed Full Tilt Poker on the leading online poker traffic monitoring site, PokerScout.com. The website tracks player traffic at nearly 70 different poker networks. The Winning Poker Network is the No. 2 US-facing poker network in terms of traffic and the #12 network internationally.

The Winning Poker Network is home to Americas Cardroom and Black Chip Poker, two leading US-facing online poker sites. The network first proclaimed that the glory days of poker are back in late 2014 after introducing a Million Dollar Sunday tournament, the likes of which US poker players hadn’t seen since 2011. The network’s upward movement on PokerScout.com continues to prove that.

Its commitment to big guarantees, its innovations like Jackpot Poker and freebuys, and the adoption of Bitcoin as a payment method have all made Winning Poker Network sites a player magnet for those in the United States.

But the Winning Poker Network has also proven to be an international leader, demonstrated today when it overtook Full Tilt in terms of cash game traffic. On February 1st, 2016 the 24-hour peak numbers hit 1,444 players, ahead of Full Tilt’s 1,249 players.

Experts credit Winning Poker Network’s commitment to ensuring that players are rewarded fairly as a big draw, especially at a time when big name players are feeling abandoned by some of the major providers. Full Tilt’s parent company angered poker players around the world by revamping their loyalty program on sister site PokerStars, making it far less lucrative for serious grinders to make extra money.

Fueling players to Winning Poker Network sites are its loyalty program and two point races — The Beast and Sit & Crush. The Beast is a progressive points race that’s funded entirely through the rake that players already pay. The leaderboard competition rewards hundreds of players each week with cash prizes and tourney seats, just for playing on qualifying cash game tables. Sit & Crush is much like The Beast, except it’s designed exclusively for Sit ‘n Go players.

Coupled with Elite Benefits (WPN’s loyalty program), the two point races offer players the potential to win impressive sums of money. The top player in 2015 at WPN earned nearly $140,000 in extra money and tournament tickets through rewards.

ACR OSS V Update: ACR Press Release

ACR San Jose, Costa Rica – November 30, 2015 – With 23 events now in the bag, the Online Super Series V (OSS V) is proving to be one of the most successful tournament series yet. With 20 of the 23 events seeing bigger than expected prize pools, online poker players across the United States and around the world are gearing up to make the $2.6 million online tournament series the biggest one in Americas Cardroom’s history.

“The OSS V is off to an incredible start and we’re really excited about the next seven days,” stated Americas Cardroom spokesperson Michael Harris. “We already witnessed a spectacular finish to Sunday’s $500,000 Guarantee, but there’s so much more to come, including a $1 million Guarantee this Sunday, December 6th. We can’t wait to see how things unfold at the tables.”

The OSS V kicked off on November 27th and features $2.6 million in guaranteed prize money, spread out over daily tournaments with big prize pools and buy-ins as low as just 27 cents. On Sunday night, OSS Event #18 featured a guaranteed prize pool of $500,000.

The big Sunday tournament concluded with a final table deal negotiated between RunTheKarma ($72,038), Rampage22 ($60,122), and x0JustingBieberx0 ($50,240). The three online poker players played it out, with an additional $10,000 earmarked for the eventual winner, which turned out to be Rampage22.

With 1,613 entries feeding $403,250 into the prize pool, the tournament ultimately saw an overlay of $96,750. However, most OSS V tournaments so far featured final prize pools that eclipsed the original guarantees, including: Event #1, whose $10k guarantee ballooned to $15,850; Event #12, whose $15k guarantee moved up to $21,600; and Event #16, whose $50k guarantee jumped to nearly $66,000.

The 10-day series continues with a full week of big tournaments for bankrolls of all sizes. Available tournament formats in this year’s Online Super Series include freeze-outs, re-entries, re-buys, and add-ons.

The OSS V resumes today (November 30th) with $37,000 in guaranteed prize money on the schedule. The series concludes on Sunday, December 6th with a $1,000,000 guaranteed tournament where $200,000 is earmarked for first place. Satellites for the OSS V are now live at Americas Cardroom.

More information on the OSS V can be found at AmericasCardroom.eu.

Golfer salaries will also not change once DraftKings starts offering contests for that tournament start time.

Contest results and winners will be based on the total fantasy points scored across each entrant’s 6 golfer lineup (scoring summarized below).

The Cage on Americas Cardroom

Player ‘bik6624235’ Dropkicks His Way to Biggest Payday in The Cage, Americas Cardroom’s $5,100 Buy-in Cash Game.

ACR Press Release:

The Cage on ACR San Jose, Costa Rica – October 9, 2014 – Americas Cardroom has officially broken new ground as poker players from around the world threw punches in The Cage. After the final hand of The Cage tournament was dealt, industry experts and those watching on the major online poker forums agree that the time-based cash game was an enormous success.

“We would like to congratulate all the participants in The Cage,” said Michael Harris, spokesperson for Americas Cardroom. “We witnessed a lot of heated moments at the tables as players viewed the six-figure prize pool up for grabs. In the end, we’re thrilled to see a lot of players walking away feeling like champions.”

The Cage surpassed all expectations in its debut. A whopping 66 players either direct bought in or qualified to the inaugural event of The Cage which took place on Wednesday, October 8th. The total prize pool was $330,000, which meant there was plenty of money to go around for all the combatants.

However, players weren’t playing for a distributed prize pool. They were playing for the exact value of their chip stack. The time-based cash game combined the excitement of a poker tournament with the adrenaline rush of a cash game. Poker players who entered the cash game did so with 5,000 in chips, with each one holding a real dollar value. Players who survived the three hours received cash for their exact chip stack.

The Cage participants had just three hours to dropkick their way to victory. Players bik6624235 ($29,947), UpayformyKia ($20,921) and vasya9 ($15,556) were the top 3 winners when the clock counted down to zero.

The Cage PLO

Winning Millions Update

Americas Cardroom Invites Poker Players to Lock In $540 Winning Millions Seat With Minimum Deposit.

Americas Cardroom has added another way to get a chance to play in the $1 Million Dollar guaranteed poker tournament to be held on ACR on December 14, 2014.

Here is the Press Release:

ACR San Jose, Costa Rica – October 3, 2014 – Who says you have to win at poker to earn a seat in the biggest online poker tournament to hit US shores in nearly four years? Americas Cardroom today invited players to lock in their $540 seat by making a $10 deposit for first depositors or $25 for reload depositors. The seat is unlocked just by playing poker and the $1 million tournament gets underway on December 14th at 3:00pm ET.

“It’s our goal to pack Winning Millions with as many players we can and catapult the final prize pool into history-making territory,” stated Michael Harris, spokesperson for Americas Cardroom. “So starting today, we’re inviting online poker players to lock in their seat just by making a deposit.”

Winning Millions is a Texas Hold’em tournament featuring a $1 million prize pool, set to begin on December 14th, 2014. Poker players can buy directly in for $500+$40 or win their spot through daily satellites.

With today’s announcement, poker players can also lock in their seat just by making a deposit. Upon depositing, players are invited to join the promo by opting in through the BONUSES section in the CASHIER. Once a player has collected 13,000 Award Points, their seat will be unlocked. Players can earn Award Points by playing cash games, tournaments, and sit & goes at Americas Cardroom.

Commented Harris, “Over the last year, we’ve seen a giant community of grinders hit the tables hard at Americas Cardroom playing The Beast and Sit & Crush. With 2.5 months left to secure a seat, it’s easy for a dedicated player to unlock their seat.”

Harris notes that the Lock In You Winning Millions Seat promo is extra rewarding because those grinding the tables to unlock their seat will also automatically participate in The Beast and Sit & Crush by playing at qualifying tables.

The response to Winning Millions has been beyond impressive. Many are predicting that the tournament could change the poker landscape in the US permanently and a Sunday million-dollar tournament could be a weekly event to look forward to in 2015.
