PokerStars Enters Final Weekend of Bounty Builder Series in New Jersey and Pennsylvania PokerStars Enters Final Weekend of Bounty Builder Series in New Jersey and Pennsylvania

Bounty Builder Series from PokerStars USA enters its final weekend over in the markets of New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

Although the action may be wrapping up, there is still plenty of juicy events running between now and Sunday. In total there is over $390K up for grabs in PA spread out across the remaining 15 events and $175K in NJ across their remaining schedule.

All events are played out as progressive knockouts, the wildly-popular MTT format where half the buy-in goes towards the prize pool and the rest towards the player’s bounty.

Main and Mini Main Events kick off in both markets on March 7.

  • The world’s most regulated online poker site
  • Great cash game traffic and some of the best weekly guaranteed MTTs
  • Stars rewards program rewards play across poker, casino and sports

Over in PA the Main Event guarantees $150K and the Mini Main $40K. In NJ, due to its smaller market size, the Main guarantees $75K, with $10K for its Mini Main.

In total $2 million in combined prize money is guaranteed across the two series.

Leader boards are also running, awarding points every time a player knocks out an opponent. Each board has $16,000 in additional prize money up for grabs. A $4,000 cash prize awaits the winner of each.

Over in New Jersey players have the chance to win tickets into the Main Event via the $3 buy-in Bounty Builder Series special Spin & Go. This offer is only available in NJ—PokerStars PA doesn’t not offer Spin & Go’s to its player pool.

The Bounty Builder Series did partly coincide with the Winter Online Championships and Planet Hollywood Online Circuit series that ran on in Nevada and New Jersey, but it is now running without competition in both markets.
