Americas Cardroom Unleashes Redesigned Tournaments Section for Better User Experience

Published

on

 

With a better user experience at the heart of everything they do, Americas Cardroom today took the wraps off its redesigned Tournaments Section. The redesigned tournament schedule portal helps players find exactly what they’re looking for, virtually effortlessly.

“Designing a good user experience is the key to helping our visitors find what they need and getting found on top of google search,” stated Bob Garcia, Director of Website Development at Winning Poker Network, the parent company of Americas Cardroom.

The new tournaments section gives players a top-of-the-fold view of all tourneys happening throughout the week. Free of clutter, page visitors are greeted by a headline, a few lines of copy, and the full tournament schedule.

Players can navigate the schedule by clicking on the tab for the day of the week they want to view. Clicking a tab immediately populates the schedule with the corresponding tournaments, with no lag time at all. Players can also download the complete schedule in spreadsheet format without having to sign in.

According to Garcia, User Behavior Analytics was an integral part of the redesign process.

“We combined both quantitative and qualitative data to give a big picture view of how site visitors interact with our tournaments page,” said Garcia. “Our team of web development and SEO (search engine optimization) experts used the data to create a series of actionable items that led to a new and improved version of our tournaments page.”

Leading poker site Americas Cardroom today announced the biggest development in its storied 22-year history.  The popular online poker destination will now operate under the ACR Poker banner with a refreshed modern logo. The development coincides with the launch of ACR Poker’s innovative new software, which features a modern look and feel, improved navigation, and a variety of player-centric updates.

“We’re thrilled to usher in the next era of online poker with the relaunch of ACR Poker and our brand-new software,” stated Chris Moneymaker, ACR Pro. “This is our most significant update ever to both our poker client and website, which delivers a great new look and feel.”

ACR believes that big poker is the best poker, so want to make the experience on ACR great for all players from recreational players to professional players.

Players who install or upgrade the ACR Poker client will be able to take advantage of improved navigation that makes it easier to find desired games, stakes, and tournaments.  They’ll also have access to more customization and personalization options, as well as vital stats like player traffic, overlay alerts, tournament updates, and final table streaming.

The update also includes multiple features to protect new and recreational players. Predatory behavior such as targeting will be limited now as players can only start one game at a time in a cash game group and can’t sit on waiting lists to get on an individual table based on who is sitting at that table.

The new website has also been completely redesigned for a cleaner, more user-friendly experience with links to a full platform range (mobile and desktop). There’s also a new store that offers a big selection of never-before-seen merchandise.

In 2022, ACR Poker awarded $650 million in tournament prizes, with first-place prizes accounting for $98 million. ACR Poker dealt more than 31 million hands in May 2023 alone, making it a favorite for seasoned and new players alike.

AMERICAS CARDROOM’S DAILY DOUBLE PROMO BRINGS ADDED EXCITEMENT WITH NEW PROGRESSIVE JACKPOT

Published

on

 

Americas Cardroom (ACR) today announced that its new Daily Double will be starting on Tuesday, May 30th. The promotion allows players to potentially win life-changing money every day for a small investment.

“Poker players are always looking for a little extra excitement and, of course, the chance to win a big chunk of change,” stated Chris Moneymaker, Team Pro at Americas Cardroom. “The Daily Double accomplishes both, especially with the new progressive jackpot.”

The Daily Double is two sets of Multi-Table Tournaments (MTTs) every day that each start 30 minutes apart. The first set is named after ACR Team Pro Michael Loncar and the second is named after ACR Team Pro Jeff Boski.

Each tournament pays out 98.5% of the prize pool daily, and the remaining 1.5% feeds a separate progressive jackpot. Players win part or all of the progressive jackpot by final tabling or winning both Loncar or Boski tourneys on the same day. And the jackpots are on top of the regular tournament prize money.

Moneymaker added that while both jackpots are expected to grow big over the first year, the Loncar one should really stand out, reaching well over $100,000 in the first year. Every Loncar tourney comes with an $88 buy-in and is $30,000 GTD from Monday through Saturday and $50,000 GTD on Sunday.
