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 Pentecost 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:

On a tablet or smartphone

(except Pinochle)

On a desktop PC or laptop

(any device for Pinochle)

1. Click Options.

2. Click Competition.

3. Click Tournaments.

4. Scroll until you see the tournament titled Longest Day Tournament and click Enroll.

1. Click Competition or the trophy symbol at the bottom of the lobby.

2. Click Tournaments.

3. Scroll until you see the tournament titled Longest Day Tournament and click Enroll.

To participate in the tournament, you just need to be online in your game on June 21, 2021, shortly before 8:30 pm CET and enter the tournament in the competition area.

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!

The jackpot and the Premium days are split among the winners of each play 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.

Several play groups per tournament can come up: When the number of registered players exceeds the maximum, another play group will open automatically. As a result of that and even scores within one group, several players can be in the same place. In that case, we will adjust the payout of the jackpot. We give precise information in each blog post concerning the tournament winners.

Something Extra

As stated above, some official tournaments come with something extra: The Longest Day Tournament has an extra-large jackpot with 20,000 Chips! Additionally, it will be the longest official tournament we have had so far! Let us introduce to you: The Ultra edition with a whopping six series! That is abundant gaming fun for everyone!

All winners means several play groups per tournament are possible: 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 two players in the same play group reach 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.

Let’s go!

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 Easter Tournament XXL on April 3, 2021, in mind, too! 🐇

Fair Play in the Community


Klickt hier für die deutsche Version.

Dear friends of the Palace,

The Palace of Cards is all about fun and games under a digital roof. Of course, that includes a dose of contest and competitive spirit, too.

Fair for Everyone

In all that, we care about fair play, equal chances for everyone, and an enjoyable playing atmosphere. We want to ensure that for our entire game community.

That also means taking action against unfair and inappropriate behavior. After all, we want every player, new beginner or advanced, to feel welcome and comfortable with us. Now, as before, we provide adjustable chat features for each player, the ignore feature, the reporting system, and our customer service.

For a harmonic game environment in general, everyone should pull together. To do so, you only need to abide by our terms and conditions, the games’ rules, and act sportsmanlike and friendly towards each another.

If a black sheep appears in that regard, our customer support stands by each of our players. Additionally, you can report a player for different inappropriate behavior using the report button in the respective profile while being at the same table. Apropos: We penalize excessive and fallacious use of the reporting system!

Increasing Measures

To a certain extent, we find it understandable to see some friction, especially among the clubs, since everyone wants to be the best. But there is a line that should not be crossed.

Unfortunately, we recently had to find that successes were obtained with rigorous, unfair behavior in a few cases. Furthermore, our popular chat feature was misused for inappropriate content.

We cannot tolerate such conduct in any way! In this context, we are cracking down stricter on players and clubs as of now.

Collective Responsibility

Every player agreed to our terms and conditions during registration. When they are breached, we must step in! You can brush up here, especially chapters 7, 8, and 9.

In our hands, we mainly have the game community’s regulation on our platform. We took measures and are confident that fun and fair play in the daily game life are setting the tone again. Also, we cooperate with the authorities to pursue legally relevant breaches.

As mentioned at the beginning, every single one of you has the power to create a positive playing experience for everyone with friendliness and fair play. We thank you for your contribution and understanding.

Wishing you continued happy card playing and always a good hand,

Your Palace Team

New: The Leveling System at the Pinochle Palace

Klickt hier für die deutsche Version.

Dear friends of the Palace,

It is time: We are officially releasing the leveling system at the Pinochle Palace! The release process has already started, and soon all our Pinochle players get to enjoy it.

The leveling system comes with levels reached via experience points and new game contents as a cherry on top. That creates a new competition! And you can adjust the game’s looks to your wishes level by level.

Level Up

Now, you automatically collect experience points for each finished table. You love Pinochle and regularly play a table? That will show soon! Also, winning deals additional experience points!

The table’s following characteristics affect the experience points as well: the number of fellow players, your progress at the table, the bet, and a few custom rules.

You will reach each level with a certain number of experience points. Fellow players see which level you are at, and vice versa. At the end of every table, you will see how many experience points you gained and if you reached a new level.

Further, you can also see how many experience points you need for the next level-up in your player profile. Here, you can also decide if you want to play using your selected table and card backs only.

By default, the game will display the selections of the table host if there is one. If you do not like that and would rather use your settings, just remove the checkmark at the option Use host table.

New Game Contents

With each level reached, you unlock exclusive rewards in the game: Among them are Chips, frames for your profile picture, skins for the tables at the Palace, and individual patterns for the backs of the playing cards. These are unprecedented options! You get all these contents for free – by simply taking part in the game and collecting experience points.

What Will Change in the League?

To make it short: nothing.

The leveling system is a new and separate feature. You will collect league points, Chips, and stars just like before. And the experience points will top it up!

By the way: By popular request, our games now come standard with tables using the custom rule Training. These tables do neither affect the league nor the star rating. This way, you can practice risk-free at these tables without worrying about decreases in your stats. Nevertheless, you will still gain experience points at these tables.

Thank You!

We are very happy to provide you with this feature! And you, the player community, helped to accomplish that directly.

We had two beta tests in different games: One in Skat, Solitaire, and Rummy from October 21 to 29, 2020, and another one from November 4 to 9, 2020, just in Skat. With your help during the tests, we could identify any bumps and smooth them. That brings us to today: We can finally add this feature to the Pinochle Palace. For this, we are very grateful!

At this point, we can tell you one thing: Have fun! We hope the new feature will bring you joy! And let us find out who will level up fastest.

We are always happy to receive praise and constructive criticism in the blog comments or via e-mail at support@binokel-palast.de.

Greetings and wishing you a good hand,

Your Palace Team
