Next week, PartyPoker will launch its newest monthly promotion, dubbed “Card Rush XL.” Beginning at the stroke of midnight Eastern time on Monday, June 28th, and ending one minute before midnight on Saturday, July 31st, Card Rush XL is like past PartyPoker promos in that involves earning cards through collecting points. But unlike past promos, players don’t have to keep hoarding cards to make poker hands or anything gimmicky like that.
Card Rush XL is basically just a simple lottery. For every 15 PartyPoints earned at real money tables, players will receive a Card Rush XL prize card. Players can then login into their PartyPoker accounts on the PartyPoker.com website to “scratch off” their card and reveal their prize. Players can collect as many as 50 prize cards each day, so up to 750 points will count towards the promotion daily.
If a player does not earn the maximum number of cards in a given day, any points that were earned but did not reach the 15 needed for a card will roll over to the next day. For example, if a player earns 65 points one day, he will receive four Card Rush XL prize cards and will have five points left over. The next day, that player will only need another 10 points for his first card, as he will start with five points. If the player hits the 750 points limit for the 50 cards in a day, any points past the 750 will not roll over to the next day.
PartyPoker will give all players a jump start on their prize quest by awarding everyone’s first card at just five points. As for the prizes, they could be cash, freeroll entries, PartyPoints, or Card Rush XL leader board points. Every card is guaranteed to contain a prize. Here is the break down of all the possible prizes to be found on the cards:
Cash: $5,000, $500, $50, $5, $3, $2, $1
Freeroll entries: $50,000 Card Rush XL Freeroll, $25,000 Freeroll, $15,000 Freeroll,
$10,000 Freeroll, $5,000 Freeroll, $3,000 Freeroll, $2,000 Freeroll
PartyPoints: 25,000, 5,000, 1,000, 500, 200, 100, 25, 10
Card Rush XL Leader Board points: 5, 4, 3, 2, 1
The $2,000 and $25,000 Card Rush XL Freerolls will be held on August 5th, the $3,000 and $15,000 will be on August 6th, the $5,000 and $10,000 will be on August 7th, and the $50,000 Freeroll will take place on August 8th. All of the tournaments will begin at 1:30pm ET.
As for the leader board points, they are just what they seem. Players who scratch of cards to reveal leader board points will be ranked on the Card Rush XL leader board. The top three finishers on the leader board will win their choice of a $10,000 luxury travel package (actually, the first place finisher will get first pick, second place will get second pick, and third place will get the remaining prize). The packages are a trip for two to the 2010 Ryder Cup in Wales, a trip for two to the Formula 1 Gran Premio Santander in Italy, and a trip for two to the 2010 Major League Baseball World Series. The rest of the top 200 on the leader board will win cash prizes ranging from $6,000 to $100.
Additionally, every 20th spot on the leader board from 220 through 2,000 will win $50.
Again, Card Rush XL ends when July ends, but there are only 1.8 million cards available to be claimed, so if they run out early, the promo ends early. As the saying goes, cards are available “while supplies last.”
