Million Dollar Jackpots (Limited Time): These are special Jackpot Poker games that come with a buy-in of $5, $15 and $50. The difference is that instead of paying a top prize of $100,000, these pay a life-changing $1 Million. This promo is only available for a limited time.

The $7 Million Venom: ACR Poker took the poker world by storm in 2019 by hosting a $5 Million GTD Venom tournament and a $6 Million GTD Venom. Both easily met their guarantee and now the site will run a $7 Million GTD Venom tourney starting July 24th.

Available at a wide range of stakes, you can buy in for just 10 Big Blinds and are free to leave at any time.  The catch is that if you leave a winner, you can only return in the next 7 days to the No Rathole Tables by buying in with the same amount you left with.

Software and Graphics 

ACR Poker’s software is bigger, stronger, and faster than ever before thanks to a major update in July 2019. The update (details below) was focused on the user experience from under-the-hood improvements to a whole new design. It will also allow for much quicker product updates in the future. 

First Deposit Bonus:  Players get a 100% First Deposit Bonus up to $1,000 (200% if they use a cryptocurrency).  

Bonus details: The First Time Deposit Bonus is paid out in increments of $1 for every 27.5 in Award Points Earned. Award points previously earned do not count towards the bonus requirement. Players have 60 days to play the First Deposit Bonus through.
Rakeback Players: 27% Rakeback. The Rakeback reporting tool is located in the “Rewards” tab within the Poker Lobby. The Rakeback percentage is based on the net rake generated from Monday to Sunday.

Rake: Rakeback players are still on contributed rake scheme; however, non Rakeback players receive points based on dealt rake scheme methodology for the Elite Benefits program.

Elite Benefits Program Overview

ACR’s loyalty program is simple. The second players start to play for real money on ACR Poker, they will automatically become a part of the program. The ultimate goal is to keep improving their rank in the program. There are five ranks—Lieutenant, Captain, Major, Colonel, and General. To players benefit, ACR uses the dealt rake method to calculate rewards, so earning points and improving ranks is easy.

Earning Points:  When players play in a cash game with a qualified rake or in a tournament where a fee is paid, they will earn Rank Points (RPs) which determines their rank.

• For every 1.00 USD in tournament fees paid, players receive 5.5 RPs.
For example, if a tournament is played where the Buy-in is $20+$2, players will earn 11 RPs for the $2 USD they are paying as entry fees ($2 x 5.5 = 11)

• In cash games, RPs are given out at a rate of 5.5 RPs for every dollar raked.
For example, at a 9 handed table, with 6 players dealt, and a total of $2 in rake, 11 RPs are then divided among the six players (2 x 5.5 = 11). That’s 1.83 RPs earned per player (11/6 = 1.83)

Players will also earn Combat Points (CPs) alongside the Rank Points. The number of Combat Points earned each month depends on the rank. A special Player Point multiplier is set for each military rank, the more a person plays – the more they win!

Combat Points are spendable currency at the ACR store. Combat points can be used to purchase cash bonuses, electronics, clothing and even a car! 

Note: Rakeback players cannot participate in the Elite Benefits program, but are allowed a one-time switch.
