The Beast is set to become the largest rake race online poker has ever seen. Released this month by America’s Cardroom, it has already surpassed a major milestone last week on Wednesday.
For those who have been out of the loop, the Beast is the brainchild of America’s Cardroom. It is a progressive rake race that grows just as a bad beat jackpot would. Unlike a bad beat jackpot, the Beast is hit each and every month. More players are eligible to win a share of the Beast as it grows in size. More information is available here.
On July 11th, the Beast climbed to a $100,000 prize pool in only 11 days. As of today, July 18th, the Beast is at $126,469.17. It is set to shatter records as the biggest rake race online poker has ever seen. America’s Cardroom has certainly hit a homerun with this promotion. It will be very interesting to see how the first month of the Beast plays out!
