The holidays are already in full swing over at America’s Cardroom, with a number of festive promotions such as the $15,000 Secret Santa jackpot. This is no ordinary jackpot either, in that it isn’t only available to one lucky winner. Rather every single player at America’s Cardroom stands to earn up to $15,000 all for themselves in cash and prizes. Better yet, the Secret Santa jackpot promotion is running at America’s Cardroom all month long throughout December 2011 and January 2012.
It’s a simple jackpot to accumulate. Just collect Frequent Player Points (FPPs) by playing at America’s Cardroom’s real money cash ring game tables throughout the two-month promotional period. Every time you hit a milestone number of points, you earn a prize. After your first 2,500 FPPs you earn a $5 prize, and then another $5 after you earn another 2,500 points. From there you earn your next prize, a mystery “Special Surprise” for 3,000 FPPs. From there the prizes and the points requirements keep increasing, each prize added to the prizes you already earned ahead of it.
America’s Cardroom awards players 1 FPP for every penny in rake they generate at the cash game tables.
The best part of all of this, perhaps, is that you don’t even have to give up your FPPs to collect the jackpots they earn you. You keep the prizes and the FPPs, giving you the opportunity to reap additional value from each of those FPPs in the future.
This is but one of the many holiday related promotions happening this winter at America’s Cardroom. Return here soon to find out about more.
