Starting May 31st, Americas Cardroom and all poker rooms on the Winning Poker Network will make automatic rakeback payments every Wednesday.
Players can still claim their rakeback on a daily (or even hourly) basis by going to the Rewards section of the poker client, and using the 'click here to redeem' button as usual. But now rakeback will be also paid out automatically once a week in case players forget.
The change means that recreational players who have built up rakeback payments without claiming them will now see them added to their poker account without having to lift a finger.
Some casual players are unaware that they qualify for rakeback and may not check their accounts regularly. The extra payments will provide a welcome surprise to their bankroll.
The statement announcing the new system explained the rationale:
“We want to make sure players have access to their entire bankroll (even funds they forgot they have).”
The changeover will begin next month, with rakeback accumulated until June 1 being paid out on the following Wednesday, June 8.
If you do find a little extra in your account, now may be a good time to try to convert it to bucket list holiday in Las Vegas to play the WSOP 2016.
Every Sunday night at 6pm and 8pm ET, Americas Cardroom is running PCPC/WSOP satellites where winners have the choice of prize. They can opt for two packages to the Punta Cana Poker Classic or one package to the 2016 WSOP Main Event—both prizes are worth $12,500.
Each Sunday PCPC/WSOP costs $55 to enter, but there are satellites available to the Sunday events for much less.
Americas Cardroom knows what its preference is:
“While about 15% of those who play in the WSOP Main Event in Las Vegas enjoy the experience (those who cash); we guarantee 100% of people who play in the Punta Cana Poker Classic enjoy the event (poker tourney in Dominican Republic paradise beach location).”
