The tournament series features $100,000 in guaranteed prize pools in each state. The schedule includes nine events with buy-ins ranging from $20 to $1,000. The bounty format should offer players plenty of fun.
“I’ve been running good lately in bounty tournaments,” said Frank DiRe, a poker player from New Jersey. “I love when I scoop a bounty early and it makes the tournament almost a freeroll from the jump.”
The series runs independently in each state. Players will have multiple options to play on with multiple MGM skins available. Those options are:
- partypoker (New Jersey only)
- BetMGM (Pennsylvania, Michigan, New Jersey)
- Borgata Poker (Pennsylvania, New Jersey)
Players can only compete if they are physically located in state at the time of the event. Those on mobile devices may need to be connected to wifi to play.
