Players in New Jersey have plenty to look forward to in August and September. Partypoker US Network has announced several big promotions to complement the upcoming $3,500 WPT Online Borgata Poker Open, which runs Sept. 19-21.
The event features a $1 million guarantee and is part of the platform’s September Online Series. As part of the action, partypoker is offering multiple chances to get into the main event for free.
The platform has some other promotions planned in the coming weeks as well. In New Jersey, the event will be available on one of the following skins, which all share the same player pool.
$50,000 Invitational Freeroll offers a chance to cash in
On Aug. 29, New Jersey players can once again win a seat to play in the $50,000 Invitational Freeroll. Entries into the tournament can be earned by simply playing online at the site.
