San Jose, Costa Rica – May 26, 2015 – New York to Las Vegas in under 7 minutes? It's possible with the World Series of Jackpots. Americas Cardroom today announced new Jackpot Pokertournaments that award players who hit the Sit & Go jackpot with $12,500 WSOP prizepackages featuring the $10,000 Main Event buy-in, and money for travel and accommodations.

 


The 3-player World Series of Jackpots tournaments are available in $3 and $30 buy-in amounts. 

"The World Series of Poker Main Event gets underway in just a few short months, so we thought it would be a good idea to speed things up," stated Americas Cardroom spokesperson Michael Harris. "With the World Series of Jackpots, 2 out of the 3 players in the tournament will get to play again if the package spin isn't hit. And if it does hit, all 3 players playing are going to Vegas."
 

Regular Jackpot Poker tournaments are 3-player Hyper Turbo Sit & Go’s that last an average of 7 minutes. Poker players can enter regular Jackpot Poker tournaments for $2 and play for up to $5,000 or enter for $10 and play for up to $25,000 or enter for $40 to win $100,000. With the World Series of Jackpots, the buy-in options are $3 and $30. The prize pool is randomly drawn right before the start of the tournament.

Most Jackpot Poker tournaments are winner-take-all events. However, for the World Series of Jackpots, Americas Cardroom is making things interesting.

Like all Jackpot Poker tournaments, the World Series of Jackpots prize pools are determined after all 3 players buy-in. Should the package spin not hit, instead of a winner-take-all format, World Series of Jackpots tournaments will award the top-2 players with the chance to play another World Series of Jackpots tournament again for free. Only the last place finisher loses.

However, if the prize pool hits the package jackpot spin, all 3 players in the tournament will win a WSOP prize package worth $12,500.

Harris notes that 3 players out of every 1,666 jackpot games played with walk away with a $12,500 WSOP prize package. "The fact that players get to keep playing as long as they don't finish last makes the World Series of Jackpots an incredibly attractive way to get to Vegas."

To make things even more convenient, Americas Cardroom will provide players who use Bitcoin with a free cashout within 24 hours of their World Series of Jackpots win, provided the winner has a certified Bitcoin account and certified real money poker account at Americas Cardroom.

Since launching a few weeks ago, thousands of Jackpot Poker games have been played, and several 5-figure jackpots have been hit along the way. Big winners so far include player ‘poker415’ who popped $3,725 in a $2 jackpot, player ‘crispoker’ who won $2,000 in a $2 jackpot, player ‘Thin Slice’ who hit for $3,200 in a $40 jackpot. The biggest winners late last week were ‘ambiance’, ‘thfp’ and ‘madman1024’ who won $40,000, $30,000 and $30,000 respectively in a $100,000 jackpot.
