Dear friends of the Palace,
This is the start of our official Tournament Countdown for 2020: Three are remaining, and the Halloween Tournament on October 31, 2020, marks the beginning. So get dressed up, join the Party at 8:30 pm CET, and give your opponents the shivers! Of course, only using your skills 😉
All Pinochle players are now received in the ranks of tournament players. Welcome, once again! Hence, the Halloween Tournament will take place in the following games:
|Skat||3 players per table|
|Rummy||4 players per table|
|Doppelkopf||4 players per table|
|Sheepshead||4 players per table|
|Canasta||4 players per table|
|Mau-Mau||4 players per table|
|Solitaire||4 players per table|
|Pinochle||4 players per table|
Depending on the game, 200 to 450 players can play per group in every game. When the maximum of players is exceeded, the next group will open automatically. This way, everyone can partake for a bet of only one Chip! Of course, you will face tenacious opponents. But if you come out on top in your game, appreciation and exclusive prizes await you.

Attention: In older Pinochle versions, this tournament might be displayed as Standard Tournament.
To take part in the tournament, you just need to be online in your game on October 31, 2020, shortly before 8:30 pm CET and enter the tournament.
There will be exclusive Palace of Cards certificates, numerous Premium days, and a jackpot with up to 10,000 Chips. We lovingly design the certificates exclusively for this occasion! All winners of the places one to three receive one as a PDF:
All winners means several play groups per tournament are possible: If 540 players registered for Sheepshead, the tournament would be held in three groups with a maximum of 200 players each.
As a result, there would be three first places, three second places, and three third places. Each play group has its separate jackpot. It will be noted in your certificate, in which play group you were successful.
The jackpot and the Premium days will be split among the winners per group. Usually, the first place receives 70% of the Chips in the pot and 90 Premium days, the second place 20% and 60 Premium days, and the third place 10% and 30 Premium days.
If two players in the same playgroup win the same score, double placements can occur. In this case, the distribution of prizes changes slightly. This is always communicated clearly in our update post on the winners.
Best sign up right away, so you cannot forget it. Once that is done, you can happily anticipate the tournament with us. Get ready for the clash of the best – practice makes perfect! So, don’t be intimidated and show your skills.
We are looking forward to welcoming the participants!
Greetings, and already wishing you a good hand,
Your Palace Team
PS: Keep the Chips Rush Tournament on November 21, 2020, and the Christmas Tournament on December 19, 2020, in mind, too!
