Spring is in the air at PokerStars NJ, and that means that it’s time for the New Jersey Spring Championship of Online Poker (NJSCOOP). This year, PokerStars is offering Garden State depositors three great promotions to allow easier entry into its annual extravaganza.
NJSCOOP will run May 4-20. PokerStars is planning 82 events that come with a combined guarantee in excess of $1 million.
With that much money on the line, players will need ways to build up their bankrolls. So, fittingly, two of these three promotions — exclusive to NJSCOOP — are deposit bonuses.
Double Down during NJSCOOP
The first of these promos is the Double Down bonus. Between May 3 and May 12, players can receive a 100% match on their deposits.
This match will apply on deposits up to $500. So, players can quickly find themselves armed with $1,000 with which to do battle in NJSCOOP.
It’s time for the Main Event(s) at NJSCOOP
If $500 free isn’t enough of a draw, it’s also possible for players to win a free ticket into one of NJSCOOP’s Main Events. PokerStars is offering tickets to a Depositors’ Freeroll that will award players seats to the High or the Low event.
This promotion will dovetail with the Double Down bonus. It will run between May 13 and May 19.
To be clear, these main events are a big deal. The Low event is a $50 buy-in tournament and comes with a $40,000 guaranteed prize pool. The High event features a whopping $500 buy-in and promises at least $130,000 in the pool.
NJSCOOP’s Spin & Go special
Of course, some players might be too strapped to deposit for their freeroll tickets. They shouldn’t worry; light bankroll times happen to everyone.
Thankfully, that doesn’t mean that there is no way to play the big events. That’s where the third and final NJSCOOP promotion comes in.
PokerStars is running special Spin & Go events that will award Main Event tickets. Spin & Go tournaments are three-max, hyper-turbo events where PokerStars determines the prize pool randomly just prior to the match. Players begin with very few chips, and it’s a winner-take-all battle.
However, for as little as $4, players can take a shot at receiving a Main Event ticket. While the chances of one of these tickets appearing in the Spin & Go are quite low, there is a nonzero chance of being in the right place at the right time.
In other words, somebody definitely will win his or her way into the Main Event for $4. It could be you.
NJSCOOP mixes things up
If you’re still not convinced, know that NJSCOOP offers something for every player. Those who are looking for more than just no limit hold ’em will find events featuring:
- Pot limit Omaha
- No limit Omaha hi/lo
- No limit hold ’em/Pot limit Omaha mix
- Five card Omaha (aka Big O)
- Seven card stud hi/lo
- Eight game mix
Spin & Gos are already running. Make sure not to miss out on all the great action at this year’s NJSCOOP.
