Mini Online Super Series (Nov. 22nd – Dec. 6th): This small stakes series returns as a standalone version instead of part of the OSS Cub3d. There will be $2.5 Million in guaranteed prize pools over 150 tournaments, including two $250,000 Main Events.
FU Covid Tourneys (Limited Time): Americas Cardroom is giving the coronavirus the middle finger. There are 20 new Freerolls and Micro-stakes tourneys happening daily. Winners get a special FU COVID-19 mask in addition to their regular payout.
Bomb Pots: Bringing bigger action and pots at designated cash game tables. All players put in extra blinds. There’s no pre-flop betting so all players see the flop. After the flop, betting resumes normally.
Million Dollar Jackpots (Limited Time): These are special Jackpot Poker games that come with a buy-in of $5, $15 and $50. The difference is that instead of paying a top prize of $100,000, these pay a life-changing $1 Million. This promo is only available for a limited time.
7 Day No Rathole Tables: Players don’t need a massive stack to play for big stakes with 7-Day No Rathole Tables. Available at a wide range of stakes, you can buy in for just 10 Big Blinds and are free to leave at any time. The catch is that if you leave a winner, you can only return in the next 7 days to the No Rathole Tables by buying in with the same amount you left with.
Cyclone Blitz Poker Satellites: Say goodbye to boring traditional satellites. These new fast-paced Cyclone Blitz Poker Satellites allow players to easily net a ticket in Americas Cardroom’s biggest online tournaments.
Live Cage Satellites: Every Sunday night at 6pm ET, players can win a trip to sunny Costa Rica to play in a $5,250 buy-in Live Cage Event.

Players can enter for $2 (play for up to $5,000), $10 (play for up to $25,000) or $40 (play for up to $100,000). The prize pool is randomly drawn right before the start of the tournament.
The Beast: This unique weekly rake race awards cash prizes and tourney tickets to cash game grinders. This is on top of ACR’s lucrative VIP program and costs nothing for the player as a portion of the rake is funneled to the cash leaderboard. The more hands a player plays, the higher they rank on the leaderboard and the more cash they make. To date, The Beast has awarded over $20 Million in cash and tournament entries.
The Online Cage: This nosebleed cash game in time-based tournament format plays every Wednesday at 7pm ET. Players may buy-in directly or qualify via satellites for this 5-hour $1,050+$50 buy-in event. The blinds increase each hour and whatever chips the player has at the end is converted to cold hard cash!
Spin to Get IN: Starting at one cent! This is part satellite, part slot machine and is an easy way to gain entry into Americas Cardroom’s tournaments and Sit & Go’s. You can spin for 1 cent, 25 cents, or $1 and if you hit three-of-a-kind, you’ve won your seat.

Bonus details: The First Time Deposit Bonus is paid out in increments of $1 for every 27.5 in Award Points Earned. Award points previously earned do not count towards the bonus requirement. Players have 60 days to play the First Deposit Bonus through.
Rakeback Players: 27% Rakeback. The Rakeback reporting tool is located in the “Rewards” tab within the Poker Lobby. The Rakeback percentage is based on the net rake generated from Monday to Sunday.
Rake: Rakeback players are still on contributed rake scheme; however, non Rakeback players receive points based on dealt rake scheme methodology for the Elite Benefits program.
Elite Benefits Program Overview
ACR’s loyalty program is simple. The second players start to play for real money on Americas Cardroom, they will automatically become a part of the program. The ultimate goal is to keep improving their rank in the program. There are five ranks—Lieutenant, Captain, Major, Colonel, and General. To players benefit, ACR uses the dealt rake method to calculate rewards, so earning points and improving ranks is easy.
Earning Points: When players play in a cash game with a qualified rake or in a tournament where a fee is paid, they will earn Rank Points (RPs) which determines their rank.
- For every 1.00 USD in tournament fees paid, players receive 5.5 RPs.
For example, if a tournament is played where the Buy-in is $20+$2, players will earn 11 RPs for the $2 USD they are paying as entry fees ($2 x 5.5 = 11)
- In cash games, RPs are given out at a rate of 5.5 RPs for every dollar raked.
For example, at a 9 handed table, with 6 players dealt, and a total of $2 in rake, 11 RPs are then divided among the six players (2 x 5.5 = 11). That’s 1.83 RPs earned per player (11/6 = 1.83)
Players will also earn Combat Points (CPs) alongside the Rank Points. The number of Combat Points earned each month depends on the rank. A special Player Point multiplier is set for each military rank, the more a person plays – the more they win!
Combat Points are spendable currency at the ACR store. Combat points can be used to purchase cash bonuses, electronics, clothing and even a car!
Note: Rakeback players cannot participate in the Elite Benefits program, but are allowed a one-time switch.
