If you’re hungry for more cash in your pocket—just for playing—you’re going to love The Beast. Tame the Beast, taste victory, because EVERYONE has a chance to get rewarded with hundreds of thousands in cash PLUS free tournament entries—every month at America's Cardroom (USA OK)
The Beast is revolutionary, completely changing how jackpots
are awarded at Americas Cardroom. Instead of throwing the jackpot fee into one giant pot that rarely gets popped, The Beast creates one NEW jackpot that pops EVERY MONTH. That means more winners, more often. Here’s how it works:
1) When you play at a Jackpot table, where 4 players are dealt into a pot and a jackpot fee is taken
2) You will earn points for every hand where you have contributed to the pot
3) Track your play within the Leaderboard in the poker
client by clicking on the Rewards tab under “The Beast”
4) You can win hundreds of thousands in cold hard cash and tournament entries
That’s it. And with tons of tables feeding The Beast, the jackpot grows every minute of every day. They’re talking six figure jackpots—every month.Earning Points
Americas Cardroom uses the contributed method of earning to calculate your points. This means that anyone who contributes to the pot will receive equal share of the points awarded for the hand, regardless of how much they contributed.
In order to earn points, every time you contribute to a raked pot at a Jackpot table, you’ll automatically receive points toward The Beast. The number of points handed out for each hand depends on the table stakes you’re playing:Stakes Points Multiplier Percentage
$0.10/$0.25 6 0%
$0.25/$0.50 6.18 3%
$0.50/$1 6.36 6%
$1/$2 6.6 10%
$2/$4 6.72 12%
$3/$6 6.9 15%
$5/$10 + 7.02 17%
A special Leaderboard Point multiplier is set for each stake the more you play – the more you win
The points are awarded to the table and are divided evenly among every player who contributed to the pot. For example, let’s look at a 9-handed, $0.10/$0.25 ring game table, where everyone folds except for four players (A—small blind, B—big blind, C and D). Regardless of how the hand plays out, all four players who contributed to the rake will earn points. Since this is a $0.10/$0.25 table, a total of 6 points are awarded. They’ll then divide the 6 points by the 4 players. This means that each player gets 1.5 points towards the leaderboard.Jackpot Fee
table marked Jackpot that has a minimum of 4 players dealt into the pot; a Jackpot Fee will be taken from the pot and fed to The Beast and the BadBeat.
On Stakes $1.00/$2.00 and lower the Jackpot Fee is $0.35; $0.17 to feed The Beast, $0.10 is then contributed towards the Cash Race and $0.07 is contributed to the Tournament Race. The additional $0.08 are taken to feed the Bad Beat Jackpot.
On Stakes $2.00/$4.00 and higher the Jackpot Fee is $0.50; $0.17 to feed The Beast, $0.10 is then contributed towards the Cash Race and $0.07 is contributed to the Tournament Race. The additional $0.33 are taken to feed the Bad Beat Jackpot.
The Monthly Cash Race:
The points you earn get tallied as you play and earn you a spot on The Beast. The more points you collect, the higher you’ll climb up the leaderboard. At the end of the month, they reward dozens of poker players
just like you with—potentially—hundreds of thousands of dollars on their rank.
The payout structure for the cash race is calculated based on the size of the prize pool, when the prize pool grows so do the number of places that are paid.
Example: If the prize pool is $50,000.00 there will be 200 places paid, when the prize pool grows to $90,000.00 the number of places paid will also grow to 360 places paid.
The top 20 places are calculated from first place paying out 13% of the total prize pool or $30,000 whichever is lower. The remaining places are paid out based on a sliding scale algorithm and everY dollar added to the prize pool is spread through every place that is paid.
So not only does the number of players winning money get larger as the pool grows the amount that everyone earns grows’ as well.
EXAMPLE: The amount paid out for 1st place based on the amount of the prize pool.
