Intertops Poker is giving players one final chance to use up any remaining Gold Cards in their account before the Gold Cards are removed next week.
Once upon a time at Intertops Poker, Gold Cards were prizes randomly awarded at cash game tables or won in special promotions. Depending on the nature of the promotion, the Gold Cards could often be exchanged for cash bonuses or other rewards.
It has been some time since Gold Cards were last seen at Intertops Poker, yet many players still have a few sitting in their accounts. Intertops Poker is scrapping the prize currency from this weekend – when all remaining Gold Cards will be removed from players´ accounts.
However, before the cull of the former prize currency takes place, Intertops Poker is hosting one final promotion this week in which players can use any Gold Cards they have left in their accounts as entries in a special “Gold Card Blowout” tournament and other network events.
The Gold Card Blowout Tournament
The Gold Card Blowout tournament takes place this coming Saturday (January 28) at 5:00pm (all times EST). It has a $1,000 prize pool that will be shared by the top ten players, but rather than having a direct buy-in, players have to win their seat through special Gold Card satellites.
The Gold Card satellites take place today (Thursday) and tomorrow at 11:30am. 2:30pm, 7:30pm and 10:30pm; and on Saturday at 10:30am and 1:00pm. Each satellite will award five seats to Saturday´s Gold Card Blowout Final, which will be a single-entry freezeout event.
Win Seats in Other Network Events
Because of the scenario in which players have multiple Gold Cards sitting in their accounts – and win their Gold Card Blow out Final seat at their first attempt – Intertops Poker is also allowing players to use their Gold Cards to play in qualifiers for other network events.
This afternoon for example (at 3:30pm) there is a special Gold Card tournament with four $5.00 Sit & Go tickets up for grabs. Tonight at 9:30pm, a special Gold Card satellite is giving away eight seats in Sunday´s $1,000 Special. Tomorrow (Friday) there are satellites offering seats in the $400 guaranteed Deepstack Turbo and, on Saturday, more opportunities to qualify for Sunday´s $1,000 Special.
End of Gold Cards Does Not Affect Gold Coins
Although it is adieu to Gold Cards, the Gold Coins issued via Intertops Poker´s excellent Rewards Program will remain. Gold Coins are awarded for each 100 Frequent Player Points (FPPs) earned by players for playing cash games or paying a fee to enter an Intertops Poker tournament.
As FPPs are distributed in cash games using the “dealt rake” method, points add up quickly. Gold Coins can be exchanged whenever a player wants to get a no deposit poker bonus. The more Gold Coins a player exchanges in one go, the higher the bonus amount:
- 20 Gold Chips = a $5 no deposit poker bonus.
- 100 Gold Chips = a $25 no deposit poker bonus.
- 400 Gold Chips = a $100 no deposit poker bonus.
How to Clear an Intertops Poker Bonus
Whether it is a Gold Coin bonus, a reload bonus, or the Welcome First Deposit Bonus of 200% up to $1,000, [geolink href=”https://www.usafriendlypokersites.com/intertops-poker/”]Intertops Poker bonuses[/geolink] are cleared in the same way.
