Rake:

The house charges a commission or “rake” as a percentage of the total pot won at the end of each real money hand. The “rake” is calculated based on the number of players in the hand, and the size of the pot. The commission (rake) is 5% and capped at a maximum of $3.

Your 27% Rake Back will be calculated using the following formula:

(Net Rake for the period + Tourney Fees for the period)*0.27 = 27% Rake Back Poker Promo

The World Series of Jackpots

We were the first U.S. facing online poker site to offer Jackpot Poker and it’s about to get even better!  Introducing the World Series of Jackpots…the new exciting form of poker that allows you to instantly win your $12,500 World Series of Poker Main Event package for as little as $3.
Only the last place finisher loses and the top-2 play on!  The top-2 finishers of each World Series of Jackpots get to try again.  Just by not finishing in last place you can keep playing on and on until you hit that World Series of Jackpots package spin.
All you have to do is keep yourself out of last place and you get to keep spinning for that 2015 World Series of Poker Main Event package.  Overall, 3 players qualify for their $12,500 trip out of every 1,666 $30 Jackpots played!
It gets even better. When that epic spin does hit for your 2015 World Series of Poker Main Event package, you automatically win it……and so do the other two people at your table!  Everyone’s a winner!  There’s nothing worse than hitting that fateful big spin and playing for a huge prize only to come out empty handed by a bad beat, so we’ve made it easy for you.  Everyone sitting at the table when the big spin hits wins a $12,500 Package!
How soon do you get the money after you’ve won it?  How does next-day cash in hand sound?  Any player with a valid registered Bitcoin wallet can receive their $12,500 cash-out request within 24 hours!

Here’s How It Works:

  1. Simply register for the World Series of Jackpots under the Jackpots tab in the poker client.
  2. Select the number of simultaneous tournaments you want to play.
  3. Choose the amount of either $3 or $30
  4. Once three players are registered, the random draw of the tournament prize pool will take place.  The reward is either a chance to play for 1st and 2nd place to try again or a $12,500 World Series of Poker package
  5. The reward will then be displayed to all players.

Jackpot Poker Disconnections and Sitting Out Policy

  1. By participating in Jackpot Poker, a player accepts the risk of internet connection problems.
  2. If a player leaves a Jackpot Poker game before he’s been eliminated, a button reading “Take My Seat(s)” appears in the Jackpot Poker lobby, allowing the player to rejoin the Jackpot Poker game.
  3. If all players disconnect simultaneously, the Jackpot Poker game is paused and will be restarted as soon as Shark Tank ensures connections are restored.
  4. If a Jackpot Poker game gets cancelled during play:
    a) If the prize pool is less than 3 times the buy-in, each player’s buy-in is refunded.
    b) If the prize pool is 3 times or greater the buy-in and there is no deal, the prize pool is distributed by chip count.
    c) If players made a deal in the JP game, the prize pool in play is only 10% of the total prize pool. Each player receives the 30% deal amount, and the remaining 10% is distributed by chip count.

What happens if 3 players go all-in and they all start with the same number of chips?
We'll use a $30 Jackpot Poker game as an example.

  • Scenario 1: There are three separate hand ranks. 1st and 2nd get $30. 3rd gets nothing.
  • Scenario 2: 1st and 2nd tie. They both get $30, and 3rd gets nothing.
Scenario 3: 2nd and 3rd tie. 1st gets $30. 2nd place is determined according to suit of the highest card. I will get the suit order to post here and on the website.

Sit & Crush

poker promo

Why should cash game players have all the fun?

We are pleased to announce the the world's first weekly progressive Sit & Go race! At absolutely no extra cost, players can earn thousands of dollars in cash PLUS free tournament entries just by playing Sit & Go and On Demand tournaments.

Sit & Go players deserve to get in on the action. That's why Shark Room is digging deep into its pockets and redistributing a part of all Sit & Go fees back to our players.

Here's how it works:

Register for any of our "Sit & Go" or "On Demand" tournaments. To find one, just look for the Sit & Go tab.

Earn points just by playing Sit & Go's. It makes no difference if you win or lose the tournament. No matter what, you'll automatically be ranked on our leaderboard.

Check your progress by clicking on the "Sit & Crush" logo in the poker client lobby and see your rank on the leaderboard, points and other important information.

Win thousands in cold, hard cash and tournament entries.

Players can earn points toward their bi-weekly leaderboard totals simply by playing in any Sit & Go tournament*. The more you play, the more points you earn, and the higher you'll rank on the Sit & Go leaderboard. See our Earning Points tab.

The players who rank highest at the end of each 2-week race will win thousands of dollars PLUS tournament entries and will be paid according to their overall finish.

Each month features two leaderboard competitions:

From the 1st of the month to the 15th

From the 16th of the month to the last day of the month.

Here's the best part: the cash leaderboard gets fuelled at absolutely no extra cost to the player. Each time a player sits down at a Sit & Go, he pays his normal fee that's all.

For example, a 9 handed $10+1 Sit & Go (the $1 would be the fee), we will take $0.25 out of the normal tournament fee and put it into the Sit & Crush jackpot. In this case of a 9 handed Sit & Go, $2.25 will go towards the race ($0.25 x 9 = $2.25), 70% is then contributed towards the Cash Race and 30% is contributed to the Tournament Race. In the previous example $1.575 would go to the Cash Race and $0.675 to the tournament race.

There is no end to how big the jackpots can grow! The more players play, the higher the prizes climb and the more spots that get paid. Every Sit & Go on the site is fuelling this race!*

 

HAPPY HOURS!!!

Everybody loves a great deal so why not get twice the value for your Sit & Go play during the Sit & Crush Happy Hours! Starting Monday, June 2nd, we will be adding Happy Hours into the mix so you can earn double the points by playing the same amount as you usually do during these scheduled hours.

Here's something to say cheers to. With Happy Hours, you'll earn double points towards our Sit & Crush leaderboard. So grind the tables and climb to the top faster than ever.

Happy Hours Schedule
Mondays 4:00pm ET to 7:00 ET
Tuesdays 4:00pm ET to 7:00 ET
Fridays 4:00pm ET to 7:00 ET

Be sure to play as many Sit & Go's as possible during the Happy Hours, to ensure you're primed to maximize your full Sit & Crush points earning potential.

You can track your progress to see just how beneficial playing during Happy Hours really is by tracking your progress on the leader board before and after you play. You can view your ongoing points tally by clicking on the 'Sit & Crush' tab in the top right hand corner of the lobby.

Please note that Sit & Crush Happy Hours are valid only for the Sit & Crush promotion and are not valid for other points accumulation promotions such as 'The Beast'. As always, heads up tables are excluded from the Sit & Crush promotion.

 

THE BIGGEST SIT & GO RACE GETS EVEN BETTER! $30,000 EXTRA IN THE PRIZE POOL.

THE CASH & TOURNAMENT ENTRIES RACE:

By participating in these Sit & Go and On Demand events, you’ll compete on the leaderboard for both cash and tournament seats prizes.

Remember, this comes at zero additional cost to you. Americas Cardroom is feeding the jackpot directly from house tournament fees.

Each week includes two separate races; one for cash and one for tournament seats. Through this race, you can win thousands of dollars, as well as seats at satellite tournaments for events like the Punta Cana Poker Classic and the LPS. As the prize pool grows, Americas Cardroom is able to hand out an increased number of seats to more and more players at the end of each week. Each points race runs from Saturday at 00:00 to Friday at 23:59 ET. On Monday of each week, we reward hundreds of poker players just like you with huge cash and tournament prizes.

The payout structure for the cash race is calculated based on the size of the prize pool. As the prize pool grows, the number of paid places increases.

There are four payout tiers in Sit & Crush.

  • Tier 1: $1,250
  • Tier 2: $500
  • Tier 3: $125
  • Tier 4: $50

Every $3,875 in the Sit & Crush cash prize pool, the prize pool adds:

  • One Tier 1
  • Two of Tier 2
  • Five of Tier 3
  • Twenty of Tier 4
  • Reseed next race with $969

Residual funds (between multiples of $3,875) as Sit & Crush grows are applied to the top places in Tier 2, Tier 3, and Tier 4 - maintaining each respective cap amounts.

In addition to winning cash, you’ll earn one entry in a tournament based on the amount in the prize pool and how you rank on the leaderboard during the qualifying period. If you win a tournament seat, you’ll be registered into it automatically. More info can be found under the Rewards tab.
