What makes Americas Cardroom a superior poker room  for affiliates?

As compensation for hosting the games, Americas Cardroom takes “rake” (a commission) from each pot. This rake is calculated based on the number of players in the hand and the size of the pot. This commission is 5% and is capped at a maximum of $3.

Once players come to Americas Cardroom, we work hard to keep them here:

Our loyalty program, known as the Elite Benefits, is the best in the industry. Players become members of the program soon as they start playing on Americas Cardroom for real money. It’s that simple.

We use a system of player levels: Player, Rounder, Grinder, Veteran, Legend and Icon. The goal is for a player to keep improving his level by earning Benefit Points.

Earning Points:
When players play in a cash game with a qualified rake or in a tournament where a fee is paid your players will earn benefit points (BPs) which determines their player level.
• For every 1.00 USD in tournament fees paid, players receive 5.5 BPs.
For example, if you play a tournament which Buy-in is $20+$2, players will earn 11 BPs for the $2 USD they are paying as entry fees ($2 x 5.5 = 11)
• In cash games, Benefit Points are awarded at a rate of 5.5 BPs for each $1 you contribute to the rake.

Players will also earn Player Points (CPs) alongside the Benefit Points. The number of Player Points they earn each month depends on their level. A special Player Point multiplier is set for each Player Level, the more they play – the more they win!

  Player Points are like currency in our online store. They can be used to purchase cash bonuses, retail goods, etc. Click here to learn everything you need to know about our benefits program.
