Last week’s Bitcoin giveaway at Infiniti Poker designed as a beta test prior to the upcoming real-money launch was such a success that the upstart poker site is doing it all over again this week and awarding even more Bitcoin to the top players.
While the initial week of comprehensive testing went well, additional tests are required on the site’s innovative Infinivision webcam concept, as well as the affiliate accounting and rakeback systems. For that reason, Infiniti Poker has announced a 2.0 BTC beta contest that will dole out two Bitcoin among six players.
The 2.0 contest began Saturday, September 28, and will run through Friday, October 4. Players wishing to participate need only sign up for a newsletter and download the software at InfinitiPoker.com.
Play money of $1,000 will be given to account holders and the top five players who earn the most play cash by the time Saturday, October 5 arrives at midnite will split 1.5 Bitcoin. The prizes are .6, .4, .25, .15, and .1 BTC for places 1 through 5, respectively. The player who plays the most hands during the week will also get .5 BTC, regardless of the amount won.
Players who already have an account at Infiniti Poker can participate again. All play money account balances have been reset to $1,000 in order to begin the new contest on equal footing for all players.
The initial pre-launch Bitcoin Bonanza that ran from September 20-26 saw “StoneJoshua7” turn $1,000 into $6,771.67 over 1,579 hands and grab the first place prize of .4 BTC. “MrLeighton” didn’t finish among the top five, but he did manage to play the most hands during the week at 2,282 to take home .25 Bitcoin.
Infiniti Poker is U.S.-friendly in addition to accepting players throughout the world. A 50% lifetime rakeback promo will accompany the real-money launch that is fast approaching and will occur sometime in the near future following successful beta testing.
