Americas Cardroom have added a new online poker tournament feature and while this added extra may not be for the poker purists out there, it does add a new twist to getting your seat to the bigger ACR events. The new Spin to Get in feature is a little like spinning the reels of a slot machine and hoping that it pays out a seat, and as you can spin for as little as $0.01 even the purists should at least check it out!
Michael Harris the Americas Cardroom spokesperson puts it like this, "Poker is a game of skill, but we thought we'd bring a little luck to the table, with Spin To Get In, we've added a slot machine style component to our registration option. It's a low-cost way to win a seat in a major tournament and players have already won big by taking advantage of the feature." When you head to each tournament lobby page at ACR you’ll now see the Spin to Get in addition, and it’s even in Sit n Go tourneys too. You get to choose your bet size of $0.01, $0.25 or $1.00 and then you spin a wheel, and if three of a kind symbols show up then you’re in.
It’s a great little addition for recreational poker players, especially those who are managing a small bankroll and for a little risk, well, you never know. The feature will be there for those players who haven’t as yet registered for the applicable tournament however if you’re already in, it won’t be visible. It’s well worth checking out and gives a whole new meaning to ‘cheap seats’ and if you’re not hitting the virtual felt at Americas Cardroom then head on over and get your bankroll boosted immediately with the 100% up to $1,000 welcome bonus, and on top of that you’ll also get a free seat in the $250 new depositors freeroll too.
