Klickt hier für die deutsche Version.

UPDATE: The winners of this year’s Longest Day Tournament Ultra are determined!

Dear winners, to access your certificates, click your player name in the table below. Upon doing so, your certificate will be displayed for you to download directly.

Some games required several play groups: When a group reached maximum players, we created a new one. Places 1 to 3 were established for each play group. A tie within a play group could cause a place to be awarded several times. Which play group you were successful in is noted in your certificate.


Scroll ahead or click to jump to the list for your favorite game – Skat, Doppelkopf, Sheepshead, Mau-Mau, Rummy, Solitaire, Canasta, Pinochle, or Spider.

ATTENTION:

We had to adjust the winners in Group 2 of Doppelkopf. The following table is up to date.

We thank the Doppelkopf community for pointing out potential foul play to us! After looking into the matter, we, sadly, have to confirm the suspicion. Any points and prizes emerging from the situation have already been adjusted. As a result, two legitimate players moved up to the places 2 and 3 in Group 2.

We cannot tolerate any form of foul play and participation in it! That includes accepting foul play in tournaments out of self-interest. You can find more info in our terms and conditions in chapter 7.

In the future, we will examine the official tournaments in more detail and take further pre-emptive measures to counteract foul play in tournaments. After all, we want to see fair play, equal chances, and positive playing experiences for everyone.

Longest Day Tournament 2021 at the Palace

Klickt hier für die deutsche Version.

Dear friends of the Palace,

We celebrate June 21, 2021, with the next official Palace of Cards tournament. In the northern hemisphere, the longest day of the year lands between June 20 and June 22, marking the summer solstice and thereby commencing the astronomic summer.

We want to enjoy our longest day to the fullest and to do so, we present the longest official tournament we have had so far, with six series instead of three – the tournament Ultra! So, make sure you have enough time for a lovely game night! To fit the occasion, the jackpot is extended to 20,000 Chips this time! On Monday, June 21, 2021, the Longest Day Tournament starts at 8:30 pm CET.

Participating Games

The Longest Day Tournament will take place in all games of the Palace with the following configurations:

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
Spider 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 merely one Chip! Of course, you will face tenacious opponents. But if you come out on top, appreciation and exclusive prizes await you.

How to Enroll

Sign up for the tournament via the game you want to compete in as of now. To do so, enter your desired game, and continue taking the following steps:

Great Prizes

There will be exclusive Palace of Cards certificates, numerous Premium days, and a jackpot with up to 20,000 Chips. We lovingly design the certificates exclusively for this occasion! All winners of the places one to three receive one as a PDF:

 

There is the possibility of several players coming in at the same place per game. This can come up due to several play groups per tournament on the one hand and due to double placements based on players reaching a draw in the same group on the other.

Here is an example: If 540 players registered for Sheepshead, we would split the tournament into 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. We will note 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 double placements occur, the distribution of prizes can change slightly. This is always clearly communicated in our update post on the winners.

We’ll See You!

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 and show your skills!

Greetings, and already wishing you a good hand,

Your Palace Team

 

PS: Keep the the Olympic Tournament on July 24, 2021, in mind, too!
