23 April 2013 (St. Johns, Antigua) – A sweet deal just got sweeter. Intertops Poker already surprises players with seemingly random Gold Cards so unsuspecting players can find themselves with a nice bonus any time, even after their first hand, even if they fold. This month Gold Card collectors will be competing against each other in the Gold Card Race for additional weekly prizes of up to $500.
Every Wednesday until May 7 the top 200 players for that week will receive cash winnings totaling $30,000. The next weekly race 3 begins tomorrow, April 24 and continues until April 30. The fourth and final race will be May 1 – 7. General terms and conditions apply.
Gold Cards are released every time a table reaches a pre-determined rake amount. Although they’re therefore released more frequently in higher-limit games, they are awarded at all levels and stakes. The value of each Gold Card depends on how it’s used. Some players like to redeem them for instant cash while others use them to buy-in special Gold Card Tournaments.
Every Gold Card earned is worth ‘miles’ on the leaderboard. The higher the value of the Gold Card, the more miles that are earned and Intertops Poker multiplies it based on table-stakes. Players can check their Gold Card Race standing anytime by clicking the Rewards tab in the Intertops online poker room.
“Series 2013” is also underway at Intertops Poker right now. Daily satellites starting at only $0.50 are qualifying players for the 2013 $5K Final. Starting May 1st, $5,000 combined value of Gold Chip and Gold Card satellites will be added.
