The PokerStars US bonus for all new players has just gotten better, as the operator is now giving you a chance to get a hold of $150 worth of poker and casino bonuses after playing a single hand at cash game tables.

This welcome offer has been available for some time, but PokerStars decided to bump it up from $100 to $150, giving you more reason to sign up and get in the mix. And, with the NAPT looming and qualifiers running around the clock, this might be the perfect time to finally create an account if you somehow do not have one already.

The North American Poker Tour (NAPT) is coming back to Las Vegas this November for a week full of exciting and affordable tournament action, and there are online satellites that can help you get there on the cheap. With the new welcome bonus, you can get plenty of shots at almost no cost.

Kick Things Off With $60 Worth of Spin & Go Tickets

The total value of the welcome package is $150, and it is spread across several days. However, as soon as you play one hand, you will receive two $5 Spin & Go tickets and 50 Spin & Go tickets worth $1 each. This will help set you on the right path.

Right now, PokerStars US offers special $3 Spin & Go NAPT qualifiers where players have a 1 in 2500 chance of playing for a $300 ticket for the NAPT Grand Satellite on October 22. The top ten finishers (at the very least) will win a package to the NAPT worth $5000, covering the $1650 Main Event entry, travel, and accommodations.

So, while you cannot buy into special Spin & Go satellites directly, it should not be too hard to use your $1 tickets to win some cash and use that to buy into qualifiers. Any money won using bonus tickets is added straight to your cash balance, so there are no restrictions to worry about.

More Opportunities Down the Road

After you get your initial welcome bundle, there will be more free stuff coming your way for the next few days in the form of tournament tickets, casino bonuses, and bonus spins, namely:

  • 50 bonus spins on Day 2
  • A $10 MTT ticket and 2x $5 Spin & Go tickets on Day 3
  • Instant casino bonus of $10 on Day 4
  • Two $10 MTT tickets on Day 5
  • $30 casino bonus on Day 6

You can utilize all the tickets and money won from the bonus towards your efforts to qualify for the NAPT. You do not have to do it, of course — you are free to use the funds as you like — but it seems like a worthwhile cause and a good goal.

While the NAPT is a few weeks away still, the big qualifier giving away ten packages happens this Sunday, October 22, so if you want to take some (almost) free shots at it, the time to act is now. Sign up for your PokerStars US account, claim your $150 welcome bonus, and get cracking!
