Big Plans: BetMGM Knocking Out 2022 With New Year’s PKO Series

BetMGM is ringing in 2023 with some online poker knockout action. Online players in New Jersey, Michigan, and Pennsylvania can celebrate with a New Year’s Knockout Series from Dec. 28 – Jan. 1 with more than $100,000 in guaranteed prize pools.

Each state will run a series. Here’s a look at the BetMGM online poker skins in each state:

PKO action coming to BetMGM

All events played in a progressive knockout (PKO) format. In a PKO, when a player is knocked out, only part of his bounty goes to his opponent.

The other portion is placed on the winning player’s head.The more a player eliminates other players, the more that player’s own bounty increases in value.

These tournaments make for some unique calls deep in the tournament, when a large bounty is on the line.

The Knockout Series includes seven events with identical buy-ins and tournaments in all three states but guarantees differ.

Buy-ins are available for players of all bankroll sizes and range from $20.23 to $535. If the holidays have left players tight on cash, a $5,000 freeroll is set for Dec. 31.

Highlights from the series

The largest Knockout Series event is a $535 PKO set for Jan. 1.  The event carries a $50,000 guarantee in New Jersey. Pennsylvania, and Michigan will host the same event but with a different guarantee.

Here’s a look at the seven events in the series:

  • $50 PKO (Event 1, Dec. 28) – $10,000 guarantee
  • $320 PKO (Event 2, Dec. 29) – $20,000 guarantee
  • $100 PKO Six-Max (Event 3, Dec. 30) – $10,000 guarantee
  • NLHE Freeroll PKO (Event 4, Dec. 31) – $5,000 guarantee
