Americas CardRoom Increases The Beast Prize Pool

The resounding success of The Beast has prompted Americas CardRoom to increase the cash prize by $20,000


Beast Prize Pool


“One Beast. One Huge Jackpot. Once a Week.” says ACR

Americas CardRoom plays host to The Beast, what is potentially the world’s biggest rake race, and has promised $80,000 in extra prizes for the next four weeks from Saturday, January 31st to Friday, February 27, 2015. The top 20 players will get a share of $20,000 each week. The US facing online poker site’s weekly progressive event promises these extra rewards to all its players that sit at any cash table.

A progressive jackpot with no extra fee

According to ACR, The Beast promo is the first progressive points race that redefines how players are rewarded. There are no designated tables so players have the privilege to sit at any qualifying cash table and start playing right away. What’s more is that there is no extra jackpot fee.  A portion of the rake is added to cash and tournament leader board prize pools, which means the cardroom pays instead of players. The progressive jackpot continues to grow with each hand played. With two players at a table $0.02 out of every $0.06 in the rake is fed to The Beast up to $0.04. Three players contribute up to a maximum of $0.08 while four players or more will see up to $0.024 fed to The Beast.

Weekly Leader Board

To make the most of The Beast weekly leader board race, all you have to do is play at qualifying cash tables and become a participant of the promo automatically. Competitions run from Saturday 00:00ET to the following Friday 23:59 ET. The leader board is updated in real time while points are earned as you continue to play. The payout structure for the case race is calculated based on the size of the prize pool. The number of places rise as the pool grows bigger. To allow as many players as possible to make the most of The Beast, ACR has capped the first place prize at $20,000. Cash and prizes are awarded based on leader board positions at the end of every week.

Entry to land-based poker tournaments

Apart from cash prizes, The Beast offers the chance to win entries to special online satellite tournaments. Every week there are seats to be won to satellite tournaments for land based competitions such as the Latin Series of Poker. So if you are looking to earn extra cash and entry to top poker tournaments, head straight to Americas CardRoom.
