For a limited time only, Americas Cardroom is giving players the opportunity to play its lottery style Jackpot Poker game for a share of a million dollars.
Jackpot Poker is Americas Cardroom three-handed, hyper-turbo Sit & Go game in which a random prize is drawn before the start of each game. Usually the prize represents between 2x and 2,500x the buy-in; and, with the highest buy-in level set at $40.00, the maximum prize pool is capped at $100,000.
However, for a limited time only, Americas Cardroom is hosting a Million Dollar “Special Event” version of the game in which players can share in prize pools up to $1,000,000. You don´t have to be a high roller to get involved. Buy-ins for the “Special Event” Jackpot Poker games start at just $0.69.
Where to Find the Million Dollar Jackpot Games
To find the Million Dollar Jackpot games, log into the Americas Cardroom client and click on the “Jackpots” tab. The Jackpots lobby has recently undergone some changes and you will now be given a choice of playing in a regular “Cash Game” or a “Special Event” game.
Simply click on the “Special Event” button and you will be given a choice of stake level – $0.69, $6.90 or $69.00. The higher stake level you select, the better your chances of hitting the $1,000,000 Jackpot prize, although there are plenty of other prizes up for grabs.
The most commonly drawn prizes will be 2x, 4x, 6x, 10x and 25x the buy-in. When these prize levels are drawn, the game proceeds in a winner-takes-all format. In the event of a bigger prize being drawn – 100x, 1,000x or the Jackpot – there is a default prize distribution of 75%/15%/10%, unless players unanimously choose to take the deal option of 40%/30%/30%.
Americas Cardroom is so confident that the Jackpot will be hit, the site has already released details of how it will be paid. Rather than paying the prizes out in one lump sum, they will be paid out monthly over a six-month period by Bitcoin or wire transfer. It may not be as exciting as having a $750,000 check land on your doorstep, but I´m not going to turn down a monthly income of $125,000!
The Beast Reaches New Heights
Although Americas Cardroom may frequently hit the headlines because of its Million Dollar Sundays – and now its Million Dollar Jackpot game – there is a healthy volume of cash game action going on around the clock. Most of it driven by the weekly Beast leaderboard competition.
The Beast is a non-contributory rake race in which players are awarded points for the contribution they make to the rake deducted from cash game pots. The points accumulate on a leaderboard and, at the end of each week, cash prizes and tournament entry tickets are awarded to the top point earners.
Last week, the total prize fund for the Beast breached the $100,000 barrier for the first time ever – paying $75,208 in cash prizes and $25.069 in entries to a satellite tournament guaranteeing ten seats in the site´s $1,000 buy-in Cage event. Overall, 341 players were rewarded for their efforts at the tables.
There seems to be no stopping the Beast. What started off in 2012 as a monthly promotion rewarding just the top players, has developed into an event that everybody can benefit from. Although the launch of the Million Dollar Jackpot games is likely to cannibalize some of the cash game action over the next couple of weeks, playing cash games at Americas Cardroom can be lucrative in more ways than one.
