Dear friends of the Palace,

The official Palace of Cards Tournaments are always popular, so we’ve come up with something special for the festive season at the end of the year: We’re organizing a whole tournament marathon with special prizes!

It’s time to get your calendars out and mark them again: The official Palace of Cards Christmas Tournaments will take place on the weekends in December! In each game you have the chance to play on a different day, but always from 8:30 pm CET. You can find the exact dates in the table below. This means that anyone who wants to is welcome to compete in any Palace Game with a tournament feature!

Participating Games

The Christmas tournament takes place in the following Palace Games:

Depending on the game, 200 to 450 players can take part in a group. If the maximum number of players is exceeded, the next group is opened directly. That way, everyone can take part for betting just one Chip! You will of course face tough opponents. But those who prevail will earn recognition and exclusive palace prizes.

And that’s not all! For our Christmas marathon, there will be a festive treat on top for places one to ten: You can receive real and limited playing cards that we have designed especially for you and this occasion! These special playing cards are designed in the style of the Palace of Cards. They are a Rummy or Canasta deck in French suits. If you prefer to play Skat, for example, simply remove the extra cards and you’re ready to go! Look forward to a unique gaming experience!

Please note: To potentially request your winners’ card game, a currently valid email address must be provided in your profile. Otherwise, you won’t be able to receive the prize notification and thus, the card game.

Theoretically, several of you can occupy the same seat per game. This can happen if there are several play groups in the same tournament or if several players in a group are tied on points.

Here is an example: If 540 players are registered for Doppelkopf, the game would be played in three groups with a maximum of 200 players each. This would result in three first places, three second places and three third places.

Each group has its own jackpot. We will note in the certificate in which group you were successful. The jackpot and the Premium Days will be split between the winners of each group. As a rule, first place receives 70 % of the Chips in the pot and 90 days Premium, second place 20 % and 60 days Premium and third place 10 % and 30 days Premium.

In the case of multiple placings within a group, the distribution of prizes may change slightly. You can always see this clearly in our blog update on the winners.

We’ll See You!

It’s best to register now so you can’t forget. Then the anticipation begins. Train for the meeting of our best and show us what you’ve got!

Best wishes and good luck already!

Your Palast team

PS: If it doesn’t work out this time, we’ll see you next year at the next opportunity! Just keep an eye on this blog.
