(Press Release) San Jose, Costa Rica – December 12, 2014 – Poker satellites suddenly have some new competition. Americas Cardroom has a brand new tournament entry feature called Spin To Get In that lets players win a seat in a major event without playing a single hand of poker. The slot machine-like feature invites players to spin a wheel for a chance to win a seat into a tournament for as little as $0.01.
"Poker is a game of skill, but we thought we'd bring a little luck to the table," stated Americas Cardroom spokesperson Michael Harris. "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."
Located in the lobby of each tournament and Sit & Go, Spin to Get In works much like a slot machine. Players are invited to place a bet of $0.01, $0.25, or $1 and spin a wheel. If a 3-of-a-kind shows up, the players automatically wins a seat into the event.
Harris notes that Spin To Get In is perfect for players who bust out of a tournament and can't re-enter the traditional way. The feature is also open to players who haven't yet registered for a tournament, however those who are currently playing in a tournament won't see the feature.
While Spin To Get In has just launched, players are already seeing its virtues. Just the other day, an online poker player risked $0.01 and won a seat in Winning Millions. The $1 million guaranteed tournament is set to get underway on December 14th
and is the first Sunday Million Dollar tournament to hit US shores in nearly four years.
