Carbon Rake Race Tournament Multipliers
Play any of the select MTTs listed below during a race and you'll earn a 0.1 multiplier bonus for each. Players start with a multiplier of 1 - play one of the events below, and that becomes 1.1. Play two for a multiplier of 1.2, and so on. Playing all ten will give you a final leaderboard score of double your VIP points.
Example - Player A earns 8,000 VIP points in race week one, and plays the Sunday Big $11. His final score is 8,800. If he played all ten MTT types, then with a multiplier of 2 his score could be 16,000.
