ACR Says Happy Birthday to The Beast with $51,000 Bonus

Posted on August 1st, 2013 by Todd Wilkins

ACR The Beast First AnniversaryAmericas Cardroom is celebrating the first anniversary of its Beast progressive rake promotion by offering $51,000 in added prizes throughout August.

The Beast was the world´s first progressive rake promotion when it was launched on Americas Cardroom last year, and it has grown in popularity every month – paying out an incredible $120,000 in cash prizes to the top 350 players in July and giving away 500 seats in a qualifier which will be played on August 11th for a package to the $500,000 Punta Cana Poker Classic in November.

Nearly $2 million has been paid out in cash prizes and tournament vouchers in the year that the Beast has been active and, to celebrate the Beast´s first birthday, Americas Cardroom are hosting daily and weekly leaderboard competitions throughout August. $1,000 will be up for grabs every day for the top 10 points earners on the Beast Jackpot tables, with a further $5,000 shared between the top 115 players who have accumulated the most Beast points over the week.

How to Play the Beast

Beast tables at Americas Cardroom have a premium added to the rake, which is deducted from pot and then added to the monthly Beast prize fund. As players play on the promotion tables, they are awarded points for their “contributed premium” which determine their monthly leaderboard position. The winner of the Beast each month collects around $12,000, but players who squeeze into the “Beast Bubble” can pick up valuable additions to their bankroll – last month (July), 350th place paid $76.59.

Beast tables are indicated by the initials “JP” when you enter the Americas Cardroom lobby, and are available in No Limit, Fixed Limit and Pot Limit Texas Hold´em plus in Pot Limit Omaha – with stakes from $0.05/$0.10 all the way up to $15.00/$30.00. Some of the 6-Max tables up to $1.00/$2.00 tend to be quite fishy (fishier than the non-Jackpot tables), and offer a good opportunity for a more disciplined player to enjoy lucrative sessions at the tables.

The daily Beast Birthday Bonus starts today (Thursday 1st August) and runs through to 23:59 EST on 31st August, while the dates for the weekly leaderboard competitions are:-
