americas cardroom pkrAmerica’s Cardroom is lining up a special Sunday weekend for its customers by taking the unique step of hosting two of its most popular and lucrative tournaments on the same day. With each tournament carrying a $50,000 prize pool, AC players will have the opportunity to play for $100,000 in guaranteed prize money on October 14. Sure sounds like a hellacious day of grit-and-grind poker will be on tap for those interested to join the two tournaments.

The first of the tournaments is the online poker room’s weekly Sunday Night Challenge, which already carries a stout $50,000 in prize money. For a buy-in of just $215, players are set to receive 10,000 in chips, a sturdy amount to go with a deep structure, making for an intense battle for supremacy that rewards the winner with at least $10,000. In addition to this $50,000 guaranteed tournament, America’s Cardroom will also host it’s unique The Beast $50,000 Guaranteed tournament. This particular tournament makes use of the online poker room’s unique progressive points race that’s funded entirely through players’ shared contributions at jackpot tables.

While America’s Cardroom is feeling mighty generous with their tournament offerings, another online poker room is making the news for an entirely different reason. PKR, known for their 3D-style online poker rooms, is jumping into new territory yet again with the release of their latest offering: the 3D Blackjack app.

The app, which is now available in the Apple App Store, is the second venture by PKR into the increasingly popular world of Apple. With the success of the 3D Roulette app that was launched earlier this year, PKR is branching out to offer its customers – and everyone for that matter – a new way to play one of the most popular games.

In a press release announcing the launch of the new app, PKR COO Leon Walters explained the company’s plans of diversifying its mobile offerings with a touch of its popular 3D poker software. “We’ve got a wealth of development experience here at PKR, and have brought 3D and high production values to the table while looking at how to really engage players,” he said.

Despite being just a play-for-fun app, there’s no denying that there’s a certain level of interest in playing blackjack on a 3D software. That, in itself, should catch the attention of a lot of blackjack aficionados.
