August continues to be a storming month over at Americas Cardroom with traffic on the increase at the popular US online poker site. Players are clearly enjoying the $1,000 daily leaderboards and the $5,000 weekly competitions too. New players are also taking advantage of the generous welcome bonus and at up to $1,000 in cash then why not. ACR spokesman Micheal Harris states that, "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, 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."

It's the first anniversary of the Beast, the unique progressive points race at Americas Cardroom and all year it's paid out huge amounts to those on the leaderboard. Funded entirely through player contributions the Beast pays out at the end of each month and everyone who takes a seat at a 'Jackpot' marked cash table become part of the leaderboard. August however is a special month and there's an extra $51,000 in prize money up for grabs which will be dished out through an extra 35 leaderboard competitions. The extra giveaways all run independently of each other meaning that is doesn't matter when you join in the fun, you'll still have a shot at the cash, with each daily leaderboard starting fresh at midnight. Recently there's been a revamp of the poker software at Americas Cardroom too and maybe this has also contributed to the growth in traffic, and whatever it is, it's great for players at ACR, and long may it continue.
