(Press Release) San Jose, Costa Rica – January 26, 2015 – If last year is any indication, 2015 could be the biggest year
for US online poker players since the big three pulled out of the United States. Leading online poker site Americas Cardroom today announced that the site saw its biggest growth in history in 2014.
"Month over month, our traffic increased dramatically in 2014, even during months when online poker tends to take a backseat to live poker," stated Michael Harris, spokesperson for Americas Cardroom. "Given the number of incentives on the table daily, we can't wait to treat players right in 2015 and beyond."
There are a number of factors making Americas Cardroom a player-favorite. Chief among them is Americas Cardroom's groundbreaking Loyalty Program Elite Benefits, which ranks #1 in the world. While larger international poker sites that don't serve the US market have chosen to scale back their loyalty program in the interest of increasing the bottom line, Americas Cardroom has opted to continue to give players what they want, handing players back more money and incentives than any other poker site.
Elite Benefits is even further enhanced by The Beast, Americas Cardroom's hallmark points race for cash game players. A player who finishes first each week could potentially earn $5,000 for a total of $260,000 a year. And by grinding the tables at that speed, the winning player would automatically become a 5-Star General, which is the top tier in Elite Benefits. That leads to an additional $130,000 in Rewards. Add the tournament seats and deposit bonuses from both and the rewards easily top $400,000 a year.
It's not just a stellar loyalty program and The Beast that's turned Americas Cardroom into a player magnet. Sit & Crush (a points race for tournament players), The Cage, and frequently held Online Super Series are also bringing new players to the table in droves.
Next month, Americas Cardroom will
usher in a new era in online poker with Winning Millions, a $1 million guaranteed No Limit Texas Hold'em tournament scheduled for February 22nd at 3:00pm ET. Players can get into this tournament and every other tournament for as little as $0.01 without having to play a single hand. This is possible with a recent promotion that was launched in December, 2014 called Spin To Get In.
Continued Harris, "We've done everything we can to make Americas Cardroom the only place worth playing at in the United States in 2014. This year, we're just getting started with plans that will blow everyone's mind."
