Launched to the delight of New Jersey poker players in March, the PokerStarsNJ.com offering has been steadily building its player base with innovative promotions like Card Hunt, and events like the New Jersey Spring Championship of Online Poker.
The site is keeping its players busy this summer with a new promo, the $50,000 Summer Daily Challenge, during which players can compete for a share of the five-figure prize pool through $1,000 value-added events.
Up until July 17, PokerStarsNJ players can win their free entry into daily All-in Shootouts by completing one of the following three challenges:
- Play a scheduled tournament with a buy-in of $1 or more
- Play 30 real-money cash-game hands at limits of $.05/$.10 or higher
- Play two Sit & Go or Spin & Go tournaments with a buy-in of $1 or more
To be eligible for the promo, players must first opt in by clicking “Start” on the Challenge of your choice in the Daily Challenge Window. The option can be found at the top of the right-hand navigation in the desktop client, just above “Account” and “Settings”, or via the “More” menu in the mobile app.
After completing one of the three Challenges, players will be auto-registered for the 8 PM ET All-in Shootout running the following day. Don’t have time watch the Shootout go down? No problem. The event requires no skill whatsoever, and allows players to sit back and relax while their chips are automatically shoved all-in every hand.
If you bust out quickly, just remember that the next Shootout is just around the corner, and all you’ll need to do is complete one of the three Challenges to earn your entry into the next day’s event. Only one Daily Challenge can be completed each day, however.
While $20,000 will go to sweeten the pot for the All-in events, players who earn multiple Shootout tickets will have a chance of winning part of an even bigger prize. Those who complete eight or more Daily Challenges by July 16 will be entered into PokerStars’ $30,000 Summer Bonus Challenge Freeroll, taking place at 5 PM ET on July 17.
The freeroll is a regular tournament, not one of the after mentioned All-in affairs, and requires that players be present to participate.
