Feel the rush of the $5 Million Venom for free at Americas Cardroom

Don’t bother lining up for the hottest new rollercoaster at your local amusement park. The thrill ride of the summer is happening online at Americas Cardroom. Of course, we’re talking about the $5 Million Venom tournament, which kicks off July 16th and that awards at least a million bucks to the winner.

Unlike your local amusement park, Americas Cardroom won’t force you to pay a hefty admission fee for a short-lived dose of fun. In fact, their Step Tournaments are quite the opposite since you can enter Step 1 for free and work your way towards a $2,650 Venom ticket.

The Step 1 Freerolls run daily at12am, 4am, 8am, 12pm, 4pm and 8pm ET. They award113 total seats in Step 2. Of course, each step gets you one step closer to the $5 Million Venom seat, but you can also buy-in directly at any point.

Here’s how the later steps operate:

  • Step 2 ($6.61 buy-in) – 25 Seats guaranteed to Step 3 (1 in 2.75 win)
  • Step 3 ($16.51 buy-in) – 15 Seats guaranteed to Step 4 (1 in 3.6 win)
  • Step 4 ($55.01 buy-in) – 6 Seats guaranteed to Step 5 (1 in 3.9 win)
  • Step 5 ($215.01 buy-in) – 5 Seats guaranteed to Step 6 (1 in 3.15 win)
  • Step 6 ($630.01 buy-in) – 1 Venom Seat guaranteed (1 in 4.41 win)

You should probably thank Americas Cardroom for those great odds above. That’s because they’re investing $120,000 each month into these Step Tournaments.

Free cash and tournament seats at Americas Cardroom (this is not a misunderstanding)

Have you seen the episode of Three’s Company where an ATM spits out $1,000 instead of $100? It’s a real classic! It’s the weekend, so Jack leaves a message for the bank to let them know that he plans to return the cash on Monday. He then stashes the money in an envelope and hides it in his sofa for safekeeping. On the surface, it’s a smart idea — until Mr. Furley takes the couch to be repaired.

That’s pretty much how it feels to play at Americas Cardroom. Not the sofa part, or the hilarity that ensues. We’re talking about getting paid all kinds of cash when you least expect it. It happens every week with The Beast and Sit & Crush, Americas Cardroom’s two rake races:

The Beast
• Participate by playing in cash games
• Enter a new race every Saturday at Midnight (race runs until Friday at 11:59pm ET)
• Win up to $2,500 in cash
• Win seats in a satellite that leads to The Cage Live

Sit & Crush
• Participate by playing in Sit & Go games, Jackpot Poker, and On Demand Tournaments
• Enter a new race every Saturday at Midnight (race runs until Friday at 11:59pm ET)
• Win up to $1,250 in cash
• Win seats in a satellite that leads to The Cage Live

Collectively, both races have paid out around $22 million. And the money you can make in both races is on top of whatever you make in Elite Benefits, ACR’s loyalty program.

There’s more where that came from. On July 16th, The $5 Million Venom hits Americas Cardroom. It’s a multi-day online poker tournament with a $5 million guaranteed prize pool, including $1 million for first place.

Don’t miss out on the excitement with Americas Cardroom’s Cage Live event

Americas Cardroom (ACR) knows how to deliver the fun. The number one US-facing poker site is once again running its Live Cage events among the tropical palm trees of beautiful Costa Rica, giving poker fans a once-in-a-lifetime chance that can’t be missed.
The Cage Live is a two-day time-based cash game that offer a unique experience. Players begin with $5,000 in chips and make their way through four levels of exciting action. By the time the clock runs out on the second day, whatever stack is remaining is what players win. Things will be even more exciting this year with the introduction of the Double Buy Option.

Here are some of the past big winners of The Cage Live:
• Troy Quenneville $51,315 – January 2018
• Dan Stavila $42,115 – July 2018
• Thomas Cannuli $30,745 – October 2018
• Nick Boll $50,485 – December 2018

It wouldn’t be possible to visit Costa Rica without a party. Hang out at the bar, check out the sights, mix it up with other players and ACR staff and take a tour of the ACR offices to see how the excitement is made.

Josh Damm, who made the trip to the Cage Live last May, said in an interview during the event, “It’s been fun so far. I ran really well the first level … I went on about a four-hour walk this morning through San Jose and saw a lot of cool things … Everyone’s been really nice.”

There are still several Cage Live events on tap for this year:

• March 29 – April 1
• May 31 – June 3
• August 9 – 12
• October 4 -7
• December 6 – 9

If you want to win your way to Costa Rica, this weekend has your chance. Each Sunday, there are two packages up for grabs in satellite tournaments. The package is worth $8,340 and covers airfare, hotel and the Cage Live buy-in. ACR is also throwing in $1,000 in cash for shopping.

The Cage Live is only a part of the excitement with ACR this year. Coming soon is the $5 Million Venom, a completely new, massive tournament. Not only is it the biggest tournament in the site’s history, but it’s also the biggest ever offered by any US-facing online poker site. To find out more about the $5 Million Venom, visit
