Americas Cardroom has produced another innovative promotion – this time giving players the chance to win a seat in the WSOP Main Event by playing Jackpot Poker.
Americas Cardroom is never short of innovations to attract players to the site. The Beast, Sit n Crush, the Cage and Million Dollar Sundays have all been responsible for increasing the profile of Americas Cardroom among US poker players, and the site appears to have found another winner in its latest World Series of Jackpots promotion.
The promotion comes just a few weeks after Americas Cardroom launched Jackpot Poker – a three-handed hyper-turbo Sit & Go game in which players can win up to 2,500 times their buy-in. The game has already been incredibly popular, and last week hit its first $100,000 jackpot – the massive prize pool being shared between all three players.
The Same Game – But with a Twist
The World Series of Jackpots is the same game as Jackpot Poker, but with a different prize structure and a different strategy required if players are to win the ultimate prize in the promotion – an all-expenses paid trip to the World Series of Poker with a seat in the Main Event. The promotion works as follows:
Players buy into a World Series of Jackpot game for $3.00 or $30.00. A random prize pool is drawn in the same way as in a cash game of Jackpot Poker, but this time the prize pool can be double the buy-in, six times the buy-in, nine times the buy-in or $37,500. When the $37,500 prize pool is drawn, all three players seated at the table will win a package to the WSOP Main Event.
The twist is that when the prize pool is double the buy-in, players who finish first and second in the game both receive a refund of their buy-in to try again. This effectively means that the top two players in each game can continue playing World Series of Jackpot games free of charge until they hit the ultimate prize of a trip to Vegas.
On average every 1-in-1,666 World Series of Jackpot games with $30.00 buy-ins will result in three players winning a seat in the WSOP Main Event; while players competing in games with a $3.00 buy-in have a 1-in-16,666 chance of packing their bags and flying to Vegas at the beginning of July.
When six times the buy-in and nine times the buy-in prize pools are drawn, the prize pools will be equally distributed between the three players seated at the table. This means that if a player is competing in a $30.00 buy-in World Series of Jackpots game, and the prize pool is announced at $270, he or she will have $90.00 credited to their Americas Cardroom account.
Even More Ways to Fly to Vegas
The World Series of Jackpots is not the only promotion players can use to win a seat at the WSOP Main Event. Americas Cardroom is hosting satellite qualifiers into the multi-million dollar event every Wednesday and Sunday at 18:00 ET. The tournaments have buy-ins of $109.00 and $55.00 respectively and guarantee between one and three Las Vegas packages.
Sub-satellites into the Sunday $55.00 buy-in tournament are available every evening with a buy-in of just $7.70, or players can win their seats in the Sunday event by playing in Americas Cardroom´s “On Demand” tournaments that get underway whenever sixteen players have ponied up the $0.55 buy-in. There is also the option of winning a seat in either of the WSOP qualifiers via the “Spin to GET IN” game that appears in the lobby of the tournaments.
