Online Poker in New Jersey

By Maria McCoyGoogle
Part Poker have already put on their New Jersey PokerFest, which was an incredible $50,000 in prize pool money spread over 50 tournaments. The tournaments were aimed at low stales players and provided guarantees on the prize pools giving New Jersey’s Party Poker crowd the chance to rake in mega returns on their investments.

Deepstacks, turbos, bounties and an array of styles including Omaha hit the virtual felts throughout January giving Party Poker a festival that they could be proud of. Players were buying in for as little as $0.50 and coming away with thousands in prize money. The main event was as always the highlight with $10,000 in the prize pool and only $10.00 to enter.

The WSOP also had its own festival running on a slightly smaller scale when you count the number of tournaments they put on. From late January to early February there were eight tournaments and $1 million in prize pool cash. That’s pretty amazing for New Jersey players to get involved in considering the long break they have had from online poker.

On top of the numerous amount of festivals coming through and planned festivals New Jersey players also have plenty of chance to win their way into some of the World Series of Poker tournaments and World Poker Tour events. Steps sit and goes offer the chance to win through six levels of poker sit and goes with final pay-off being an all in package to a WPT event with hotel stay and main event buy-in ticket.

Furthermore, there are plenty of high stakes and low stakes tournaments with up to $50,000 guaranteed prize pools exclusively for members of New Jersey poker sites. There are re-buy and top-up structures with turbo as well as normal blind levels. Each site had its own set of special tournaments that players can take advantage of. Weekdays tournaments start at a reasonable time in the evening while many of the weekend tournaments are open at convenient times of the day.

Moreover, depositing to online poker accounts in New Jersey has been made very flexible. Many of the banks have allowed financial transactions via VISA and MasterCard. There are also sites with payment options via 7-Eleven and via casino cash cages on the strip. There are also other methods of payment via Skrill on some of the sites, but no sign of BitCoin.

All the sites are offering the traditional deposit match bonuses subject to their own terms and conditions. There are also free no deposit bonus chips on offer for fresh sign ups. This is a pretty cool way to test the site and the number of players on the tables. Free tournament tickets, free cash game balances and more.
Right now New Jersey poker is giving away exactly what the global poker sites are offering. It looks as if the Garden State is getting a good fill of poker.
