New Year’s Tournament 2021 at the Palace

Klickt hier für die deutsche Version.

Dear friends of the Palace,

We think there are countless reasons to welcome the next year with arms wide open! That is why we are having an official New Year’s Tournament: On Saturday, January 2, 2021, it is on at 8:30 pm CET.

Participation

The New Year’s 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
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 in your game, appreciation and exclusive prizes await you.

Registration

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 step by step:

On a tablet or smartphone

(except Pinochle)

On a desktop PC or laptop

(Any device for Pinochle)

2. Click Competition.

3. Click Tournaments.

4. Scroll until you see the tournament titled New Year’s 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 New Year’s Tournament and click Enroll.

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 January 2, 2021, shortly before 8:30 pm CET and enter the tournament in the competition area.

Prizes

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, 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 – practice makes perfect! So, don’t be intimidated and show your skills.

We will take in some quiet time over the holidays. Hence, the comments here will be deactivated during that period. Afterwards, you will be able to reach us as usual again. 🙂

Enjoy the holidays and start well into the New Year!

Already wishing you a good hand,

Your Palace Team
