    Default February 2009 - affiliate newsletter

    We have so much going on at PDCAffiliates there's barely been time to get our heads around it, let alone tell everyone. There are some fantastic new things in the pipeline. Check out all the info below:


    February 13th, 2009 One lucky player on the Merge Gaming Poker network from New York has just broken the world record for a bad beat jackpot proving Friday 13th is not so unlucky for some. The lucky player scooped $417,396 with the total Jackpot hitting a staggering $1.2m. The jackpot has already been reseeded and currently stands at $247,000
    Player RUGGIO scooped the World record prize by being beaten on the lowest stake jackpot table where blinds start at $0.50/$1. He held a straight flush from 7 to Jack of hearts. He was beaten by AELANI who was holding the Queen and King of Hearts giving him a higher Straight Flush. AELANI still took down $208,698 for his part. All the other five players on the table received $41,739 for just being there.
    Why not tell your players to try their poker skills at Carbon and PDC Poker's Bad Beat SnG's?
    The playing structure is no different to a regular sng and the fees are still the same, but with one added difference...
    To help celebrate the World's biggest ever online Bad Beat Jackpot, Carbon Poker and PDC Poker are offering players a little extra insurance. Simply register and play any Bad Beat Sit'n'Go and if you bust out short of the money with Pocket A's and we will refund your buy-in. It's that easy!
    All players who qualify for a Bad Beat Sit'n'Go refund, will receive automate payments directly to their player wallet at the completion of each day (00:00 Server time).
    We thought now would be the perfect time to remind you of how you as an affiliate can be part of the action.
    We have a number of Bad Beat banners available for both Carbon and PDCPoker. All you need to do is put up one of the banners on your site(s) and if one of your tracked players wins the Bad Beat - you get a share too!! We will pay you 1.5% of whatever the jackpot is at the time it goes off and add that to your affiliate revenue. The banner must remain live on your site(s) in order for you to qualify. Please contact your affiliate manager with the URL where you are featuring the Bad Beat Jackpot banner to go into the running. This is an on-going promotion so if you miss out on the Jackpot this time, there will always be another shot at it.
    Here is one of the new automatically updating banners you can get from the Bad Beat Jackpot banners section of This banner and plenty more including the PDC Poker versions are waiting for you in your admin.

    New VIP Program

    Coming very soon we are going to be launching our new VIP program for players.
    This will incorporate a tiered VIP structure as well as a change to how your players can use their comp points. Players will be able to use their comp points to buyin directly to tournaments or exchange their comp points for cold, hard cash as well as many other things. We are also lauching a brand new comp points store for players as well.
    I cant let too much out of the bag just yet but we think the new VIP program will only further highlight why we are one of the industry leaders in online poker.

    New Affiliate Site

    Coming in very early March will be our brand new Affiliate Site.
    We have given the old site a major visual overhaul and have made some improvements over the way we provide content such as banners, linking codes etc.
    There will be more info in the coming weeks as we put the finishing touches on the system and get ready for the roll-out.


    If you require assistance with anything related to our program, don't hesitate to ask! The PDCaffiliate team are always ready to help you. Contact us any time at

    Your success is our business.

    Kind Regards,

    The Team
