Fixed limit games don’t usually make the blood pump through your veins. However, between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. each night, limit games on will do just that.

Play fixed limit games for your chance at a share of $3000. Sometime during that three-hour window, a randomly-chosen fixed limit table will award bonus money to every player seated during the prize hand.

Players can win up to $100, though the exact disbursement will be random. Bonus money will hit the players’ accounts within 72 hours of the win.

Happy Hours October Challenge

Players can score big every night between 8 p.m. and 12 a.m. In fact, WSOP has improved the Happy Hours promotion by giving players two options for how they want to proceed.

The first option is simple. Players can earn double APPs during the four-hour period.

The second option offers many more rewards, but players must qualify for them first. To qualify, players must either play three days in a Happy Hours week during the promo time, or must wager at least $100 during a qualifying week.

However, once players meet the requirements, they will receive either a $1 BLAST tournament ticket, a $5 BLAST tournament ticket, or $100 in cash. The exact prize will remain a mystery until it is received, but a guaranteed prize is in sight for every player on in New Jersey.

All the leaderboards are back rewards players who are loyal and frequent. As a result, there will be four leaderboards for players during the month of October.

The four boards are High-Low, Turbo SNG, BLAST, and APP. Each board will track player points throughout the month.

Players who find themselves at the top of one or more boards will receive great prizes, like cash or tournament tickets. The only limitation players have is the time they can play.

Each week, WSOP NV will give out over $2,000 in cash and prizes to the top players who opt into the promotion AND to players who have hit the roughest patch.

In doing so, players will find their good luck augmented, but their bad luck softened. As with any good game, the goal is to keep players playing, and hopefully, to turn things around if a player finds himself in a tough spot.

Payouts for winners will be from $20 to $300 on the High side, and anything from $100 in tournament tickets to WSOP swag on the Low side. Each week will have a new leaderboard.

Otherwise, players can also take part in the Short-handed leaderboards, the SNG leaderboards, the Turn the Tables leaderboards, and the Fixed Limit leaderboards. All of these boards will run until October 30.
