PokerStars in the USA has been on the mission to revamp their welcome offer across the board for a little while now. With PokerStars NJ now offering the new and improved welcome bonus featuring $50 worth of free play in Spin & Go and MTT tickets, that mission is finally complete.
Moving forward, all players signing up for PS NJ will get to take advantage of the enhanced welcome bonus featuring $50 in free funds. This is a significant bump in comparison to the old bonus, which provided only $30.
Requirements to claim the offer have been cut down significantly as well. Players now must only play a single real-money cash hand at any stakes after opting in for the offer through their Challenges window. The minimum $20 deposit stipulation has been removed.
The only caveat is that the bonus must be claimed within the first five days from registering. Those wanting to take advantage of the new offer must act quickly after signing up for a PokerStars NJ account. They only have a five-day window to opt in for the promotion and play the qualifying hand.

Enjoy a Mix of Tournament Tickets
After opting in, you simply need to head to over to any of the cash game tables available in the PokerStars client, sit down, and play a hand. What game format or stakes you choose does not matter.
There is no deposit requirement, either, but players obviously need to have enough real money in their accounts to afford at least the minimum buy-in at the lowest of stakes. If you can win enough money within the given time frame playing freerolls, for example, you might be able to claim the bonus without a deposit.
Unlike the old package, the revamped offer consists only of tournament tickets, or, more precisely, a mix of Spin & Go and MTT entries awarded through Chests on Day 1, 3, and 5 after meeting the requirements:
- Day 1: Two Spin & Go tickets worth $5 each
- Day 3: Two $5 Spin & Go tickets and one $10 MTT ticket
- Day 5: Two $10 MTT tickets
Spin & Go tickets work for all Spins in the appropriate bracket, while tournament tickets can be used for all $10 events. Any resulting winnings are issued as real money with no wagering and no restrictions, making this a pretty sweet deal.
The operator has rolled out its new welcome promo with PokerStars MI. This was followed by the launch on PokerStars PA shortly after introducing popular Spin & Go’s in the state. New Jersey players had to wait the longest, but that wait is now over.
The $600 Deposit Bonus Still up for Grabs
Those players who prefer a more traditional welcome bonus can still get a 100% boost on their first deposit up to the maximum of $600. The offer is available to all new customers who have not yet make a deposit with the site.
- Great bonus$50 freeplay or Up to $600 deposit match bonus

For this one, you will need to use the bonus code
STARS600 when depositing instead of opting in after the fact.
The bonus is released in increments of $10 for every 140 Redemption Points achieved and players have a window of 120 days to clear the entire bonus. Any remaining bonus funds are removed after that period expires.
All in all, PokerStars NJ players now have two great bonus offers to choose from. The new $50 package is a great choice for those new to the game or looking to build up their bankroll with minimum risk. The $600 deposit bonus is very solid for grinders and more serious players.
