Huge Traffic Increases Continue at Americas Cardroom After ‘Beast’ Promo

San Jose, Costa Rica –As The Beast Anniversary celebration continues this month at Americas Cardroom with daily $1,000 leaderboard competitions and three more weekly leaderboards worth $5,000 a piece, poker players from all over the US are signing up to take advantage of the cash giveaway in record numbers. Earlier this week, Americas Cardroom became one of the big three online poker sites in the US.

"We've already handed out $12,000 in daily leaderboards plus another $5,000 for our first weekly leaderboard—and we're just getting started," stated Americas Cardroom spokesperson Michael Harris. "We're excited to welcome more new players to our constantly growing community throughout August so they can discover why so many poker players love Americas Cardroom."

The Beast is Americas Cardroom's progressive points race that's funded entirely through the poker site's jackpot tables, using players' shared jackpot contribution money. Anyone who sits down at a cash table marked Jackpot automatically becomes part of The Beast competition by earning points through participation in a raked hand.

At the end of each month, the prize pool in The Beast is distributed to players who rank on the Beast leaderboard. But for the month of August, Americas Cardroom has upped the ante with an additional $51,000 in prize money, handed out through 35 additional leaderboard competitions. That's on top of the already popular monthly competition. The 35 competitions come in the form of 31 separate $1,000 daily leaderboard competitions and four weekly $5,000 competitions. The daily and weekly leaderboards are not cumulative, so everyone has a shot at winning.

Each daily leaderboard resets at midnight to give all players a fresh start. The weekly leaderboards run from August 1-9, August 10-16, August 17-23, and August 24-31. Each leaderboard resets at midnight each start date.

While many poker players are profiting large from the giveaway, DULT, THEREALTREENOM, CELLAR DOOR, and N0TS0GRACI0US1NDEFEFEAT have stood out with multiple daily leaderboard appearances.

The Beast Anniversary, coupled with dramatically enhanced online poker software, has meant a large increase of traffic at Americas Cardroom. Last week, Americas Cardroom overtook Merge to become the third-largest US-friendly online poker room. As the Beast Anniversary celebration continues, many online poker experts are predicting that Americas Cardroom will narrow the gap between the #3 and #2 spot.
