Party Poker’s first promotion in New Jersey is a big one, as New Jersey online players have the chance to win a $1 million cash and prize package by participating in NJ.PartyPoker.com’s New Jersey’s Next Poker Millionaire promotion.
The NJ.PartyPoker.com promotion is currently the largest being offered by any online poker provider in New Jersey.
Eight lucky players at NJ.PartyPoker.com will get a chance to play in a live single table tournament at the Borgata Hotel and Casino on February 1st, 2014. Here is how you can win your seat:
Once you have earned your way into one of the eight semi-final tournaments that take place every Sunday, beginning on December 1st, all you have to do is win. I know, easier said than done.
Each semi-final winner will earn a spot in the live tournament at the Borgata where they are guaranteed a prize-package of at least $1,000.
The winner will earn a cool $1 million, part of which is made up of a massive tournament prize package as detailed by the site:
The $1 million prize will include a WPT Alpha 8 super high roller package ($100K), a WPT World Championship seat ($15K), two entries to $3,500 WPT events held at the Borgata Casino ($7K), 52 tournament entries to the Sunday $50K ($10,400), $8,000 in live tournament entries at the Borgata Casino.
With multiple semi-final tickets being handed out to virtually every player at the site, you can expect these tournaments to have pretty large fields compared to your typical freeroll tournament in New Jersey.
Still, with New Jersey’s online poker industry in its absolute infancy, and participation limited to New Jersey residents, I wouldn’t expect tens of thousands of players, so my guesstimate would be fields in the high three- to low four-figure range.
New Jersey’s online gambling industry has been up and running for a less than a week and so far Party Poker’s New Jersey online poker site, NJ.PartyPoker.com, along with its sister site BorgataPoker.com, have been getting the best reviews, mostly in terms of software, deposit bonus, and of course their promotions like the New Jersey’s Next Poker Millionaire promo outlined above.
