Americas Cardroom is serving up its next $1 Million Guaranteed online poker tournament on August 2nd and while you can of course buy your seat directly to that big one, it will cost you $540 to do so, however as ACR is a room that likes to spread the poker love, they do of course offer many cheaper alternatives that will get you to the biggest online poker tournament of the summer. On top of the million dollar satellites and qualifiers there’s also the brand new Jackpot Poker Million or Bust promotion, which gives you a shot at the first place prize of a minimum of $200,000 for a measly 12 bucks, and it’s all so simple to get involved in.
Americas Cardroom Jackpot Poker is super fast action poker in which only 3 players take their seats. It’s a hyper turbo sit n go tournament offering with a difference in that there are only 3 buy in amounts, those of $2, $10 or $40 and the randomly generated prize pool is always between 2 and 2,500 the buy in amount, meaning that should you hit lucky, when the prize pool is announced it could be a cool $100,000 at the $40 buy in level. The Million or Bust variation however serves up a different buy in and structure to the payouts, and that is that they are $12 to buy in and prizes are either $24, $72 or $109 or seats to the 1 Million GTD tournament, and should you be at a table in which that prize is generated, then all 3 players will be taking their seat in the big one on Sunday August 2nd.
It may not be an offering that the poker purist will enjoy, however for a fast action shot at the real big money then it’s superb, and each tournament takes less than 7 minutes to play. You will of course need an Americas Cardroom account opened to get in the mix, and that’s a simple task, as is collecting your 100% up to $1,000 welcome bonus.
