Gimmick of the Week: PartyPoker's Card Rush

Online poker gimmicks come in all shapes and sizes, from software developments to wacky new game formats.

Today we look at an easy one: PartyPoker's Card Rush giveaway! Play poker, get free money and prizes! Read on to find out how it all works.

The concept behind this promotion is wonderfully simple. In the month of April Party Poker is giving away 1.8 million prize cards to players on their site. Each card can be redeemed for either points, cash or freeroll action.

You get the cards by earning player points on Earn 5 points and you get your first card. Each additional card will take 15 points to earn. Players are limited to earning 50 cards per day, and the promotion will end either at the end of the month, or when all 1.8 million cards are given away.

You receieve the cards in your email and, after doing a little virtual scratch-and-winning, you get your prize.

Each card will include one of the following prizes:

Cash: $1, $2, $3, $5, $10, $50, $250, $5,000

Entry into one of six freerolls: (prize pools) $2k, $3k, $5k, $7.5k, $10k, $15k, $20k

Player Points: 10, 20, 50, 100, 150, 250, 750, 5,000, 25,000

Card Rush Race Points: 1, 3, 5, 10, 20
