Dear friends of the Palace,
Summer is well underway and with that, it is time for the Grand Summer Tournament! On Friday, August 18, 2023, it is on at 8:30 pm CEST. This tournament lives up to its name: The Chips jackpot and Premium prizes are especially opulent!
The Grand Summer Tournament will take place in most 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. Of course, you will face tenacious opponents. But if you come out on top, appreciation and exclusive prizes await you.
You can find more information on the tournaments at the Palace here.

There will be exclusive Palace of Cards certificates, and this time an especially grand number of Premium days as well as a jackpot with 100,000 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 one Premium year, the second place 20% and 180 Premium days, and the third place 10% and 90 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
