NETWORK: Winning Poker Introduces The Beast
Americas Cardroom and True Poker hail their new "Beast" progressive rake race promotion as the most innovative jackpot-fee based online poker promotion ever. The Beast is basically a cross between a rake race and a progressive jackpot. Players who contribute money to the promotion jackpot (whether it’s via blinds or voluntary bets), are awarded jackpot points. The actual amount of the contribution isn’t important: All contributors are rewarded equally.
Site officials are expecting "The Beast" to give away more than $200,000 in its first month alone, which means a top prize of about $25,000. The actual cash prizes only represent the top of the iceberg in this case though: in addition to them, players can win satellite tickets worth $109 each. The satellites offer seats in the Latin Series of Poker’s Punta Cana event which offers a guaranteed prize-pool of $500,000.
