October 8, 2008 – Leading online poker affiliate program Chipleader announced today a new promotion designed to put cash in affiliates' pockets, if any of their referred players climb to the top of two separate leaderboard competitions at the online poker rooms Absolute Poker and UltimateBet.
The details: Chipleader affiliates are now eligible to win the equivalent of 10 percent of their referrals' winnings in Absolute Poker's Race Cards contest and UltimateBet's Ultimate Race for Riches promotion.
A news release stated: "For the month of October at UltimateBet, RAI$E Status Points earned at qualifying online poker tables will count towards the Ultimate Race for Riches leaderboard competition. At the end of the month, the top 100 RAI$E Status Point earners will share in a $100,000 prize pool that includes $15,000 for the first place finisher, $10,000 for the second place finisher, and $9,000 for the player who ranks third."
Absolute Poker has launched a similar contest of its own, called Race Cards, and based on FAME Status Points. Absolute Poker's promotion also features a $100,000 prize pool and a similar payout structure.
To qualify, affiliates must actively promote Absolute Poker or UltimateBet on their site and have the Race Cards banner or the Ultimate Race for Riches banner displayed on their homepage.
