Plenty of Satellites Available
Online poker players in New Jersey can take advantage of the dedicated satellite schedule in order to take a shot at the tournaments. Step satellites are available to earn entry at a fraction of the expense.
For Event #1 with a price tag of $535, players can enter $5 qualifiers with two tickets guaranteed to the $45 step. For the same buy-in, seats are also up for grabs to the $109 turbo qualifier as well.
The bargain $215 Event #2 even gives players the chance to potentially win their seats free of charge. By using 10 player points, hopefuls can start their journey from zero and have a shot at two guaranteed tickets. Further buy-in steps include buy-ins of $5, $20, and $55.
Satellites for the final $1,060 Championship Event are not listed in the poker clients yet. However, several qualifier paths are expected to become available. This strategy has proven to be successful in New Jersey as showcased in the latest Online Series.
“You definitely don’t want to miss the culminating event which is bigger than ever, at a $1060/$150kgtd! I’m pretty sure our commentators will be back as well for another awesome live-streamed FT,” Stone added.
Successful Online Series in March 2021
The partypoker US Network hosted their most recent edition of the Online Series from March 21 to 28. Eleven tournaments within seven days included guarantees of $360,000. Despite some overlays in bargain events, the festival nearly doubled the prize money.
More than 2400 entries emerged in the eleven tournaments and more than $711,000 in prize money was paid. Most notable, the flagship $1060 Main Event shattered its guarantee of $125,000 thanks to 464 entries. Borgata sponsored pro Stone finished as the runner-up for $61,016.
The surge in tournament entries coincides with the rise in traffic across all operators in New Jersey. Borgata, the license holder behind BetMGM and partypoker US Network, maintained its second spot behind WSOP NJ in online poker traffic.
The Borgata group generated a year-over-year increase for February of more than 75% in the Garden State.
Their latest online poker festival, the Online Borgata Poker Open, will run on three consecutive Sundays from April 11 to 25. The trio of tournaments features $325,000 in guarantees.
