Unlock the Cardex to Win up to $5,000!

Ready to take on a secret mission? Unlock the Cardex to earn a mystery cash prize worth up to $5,000 every day!

Opt-in via your Challenges Window to reveal your first red or black card on the mystical, spinning device known as the Cardex, then play any NL Hold’em cash game including Zoom (three players minimum). If you’re dealt your selected card and win the hand, you’ll progress to the next step.

The colour of the card on your Cardex must also match the suit of the card you win with. For instance, if you get a red queen on the Cardex, you’ll need to win with either the queen of hearts or the queen of diamonds.

After you’ve collected the first card, the Cardex will automatically reveal your next card on the next reel. Complete all five reels to receive your cash prize.

There’s a new chance to win every day until November 17, so don’t miss out!
